Talking to Capital Breakfast ahead of starring in Saturday's The Best of Capital's Summertime Ball with Barclaycard, the American Idol judge revealed when asked about whether she had swollen feet: "Yeah well my feet haven't gotten swollen yet but I cry, yes.

The California Gurls hitmaker also admitted that she was finding it hard knowing how to handle her cravings while in quarantine. "Everyone talks about cravings when you're pregnant and for me, I think about cravings but I also think about 'do I want to risk my life getting that craving' so it's all like really intense thoughts that are supposed to be light and bright and you're like arghh. You know, there's so many levels of uncertainty and it's really a one day at a time type of thing."
