Taylor Swift is currently on tour in support of her most recent album, Red, and was performing in Pittsburgh last month when she accidentally uppercut herself Mortal Kombat-style and chipped a tooth. Well, that sounds painful… and sort of hard to do. Luckily, someone took video of the incident (above), so we’re all privy to what happened. Also luckily, she’s a multi-millionaire so she can pay to have it fixed.
Here’s what Tay had to say to Rolling Stone about the incident the next night, after she’d performed in another city:
Tonight I was particularly hung up on not chipping another tooth like last show in Pittsburgh, definitely. It had a tip on [the tooth] and it doesn’t anymore. I try to be really quick with the microphone, so I’m not standing there just waiting to sing with my mic right next to my face, so I really quickly pulled my mic up to sing and basically uppercut punched myself in the tooth. And then part of it fell onto the stage and I was like, “Oh, I wonder how bad that was. I wonder which tooth that is and I wonder how bad that is,” and I was just trying not to chip another one tonight. I’m not doing anything about it. It’s just gonna be a little bit jagged, I guess.
Damn, girl. That sounds pretty painful. Also, it’s reminded me that I really need to make a dentist appointment for sometime this month. Gotta keep those pearly whites gleamin’!
In case you missed the memo, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are all up in each other’s asses. Not literally, perverts. They’re just BFFs. They’re so close, they’re nearly sisters! Taylor influenced Selena’s new album, rolled her eyes when she gave Justin a kiss at the VMAs and posted a ‘Happy Birthday’ message for her on Twitter, complete with the above picture of them posing with a mermaid statue. Aw, friendship!
I don’t really have a problem with these two being besties – I mean, if I did I would be kind of a weirdo because who cares who someone else is friends with? – but I will say one thing: I feel bad for Demi Lovato. She basically got dumped by Selena and now Selena’s hanging out with Taylor all the time. DRAMAAAA!
Here’s Taylor’s message for Selena on Twitter:
Selena Gomez believes her new music is much more “mature” than her previous releases. I suppose technically that’s the case. After all, she wasn’t always openly propositioning men for sex in her songs, really. Still, this new sound would never have been possible were it not for the help of Taylor Swift, Selena’s BFF and apparently her musical hero, as well. Listening to Taylor’s new album, Red, as well as Britney Spears‘ latest, managed to push her own music to the next level.
“The past year and a half has been really transitional for me, just personally, as well as transitioning into becoming a woman. I still feel like I’m 15 sometimes and then other times, I’m wanting to feel comfortable in my body and my skin.
“I was able to have full creative control over it. Before, I would have maybe a month or two to record an album, and I’d have to do my series at the same time and tour on the weekends. I wasn’t in the right mindset to fully give my all.”
Well… okay. I still don’t think I’d consider her music to be “mature”, and while I love a few of her singles – I actually like ‘Come and Get It’ and ‘Love You Like a Love Song’ was classic – I still always feel like I’m listening to a Disney star, or a former Disney star, or a little girl trying to be a big one. Maybe that’s just me – she seems to be doing well enough!
