Viviane de Queiroz Pereirabetter known by her stage name, pocah, is a Brazilian singer-songwriter. Based on her 15.7 million Instagram followers and fifth-place finish on Big Brother Brasil, she must be pretty well known in Brazil. But this week 27-year-old Pocah finally achieved international celebrity. Unfortunately, it wasn’t from one of her songs. Or even a sexy selfie. Nope, Pocah’s making headlines cuz she was hospitalized for holding in farts around her boyfriend. A star is born.
Pocah shared her wild tale on Instagram Stories, posting a pic and short video of herself in the hospital. She wrote that she awoke at 5:30 AM with “severe stomach breads” and had to be taken to the hospital. She was soon diagnosed with the very scientific-sounding “trapped farts,” all because she was too shy to break wind in front of her boyfriend. Apparently, Pocah also took advice from a TikTok thread that encouraged her to ignore her stomach pain. Meh, that’s more or less the same thing as consulting a doctor.
But don’t worry, after being medicated at the hospital, Pocah has made a full recovery. And she learned a very valuable lesson about shame and femininity, writing, via The New York Post:
“Girls, don’t be ashamed to fart in front of your guy, because what’s really embarrassing is not letting your guy sleep because you’re in discomfort, going to hospital with your guy, and the diagnosis being ‘trapped farts,’” said Pereira. “From now on, I’m letting them rip, guys.”
Here’s are Pocah’s now-disappeared Stories:

The question is, who’s the boyfriend? According to Pocah’s Wikipedia and an Instagram pic from last month, the man in question is promoter Ronan Souza. The disturbing part about this is Pocah and Ronan have been together for over two-and-half years! Has poor Pocha been holding her gas in this entire time? That’s why her bum is so big… it’s full of secrets.
