Taylor Swift Hilariously Reacts To Accidentally Swallowing 'Delicious' Bug Onstage

Taylor Swift certainly had to shake it off after a bug unexpectedly flew into her mouth during a performance on her Eras Tour.

The gross moment happened on Sunday night, prompting the pop star to momentarily pause her show at Soldier Field in Chicago in front of thousands of fans, as seen in videos shared on social media. 

In one clip, the singer is seen covering her mouth to cough and turning her back on the crowd before telling fans in a strained voice: “I just swallowed a bug. I’m so sorry.”

As she was about to transition into her next song, she tried to brush off the blunder, apologising again and shakily sharing that she would be “fine”. 

“It’s just so stupid,” she said, shaking her head and attempting to cough up the pesky insect. 

In typical Taylor fashion, she didn’t let an unanticipated hiccup ruin the show.

“Oh, delicious,” she joked of eating the bug, before asking the massive crowd of Swifties: “Is there any chance none of you saw that?” 

“It’s fine, it’s all... I’ve swallowed it. So I’m just gonna try not to do as many of those. This is gonna happen again tonight,” she continued with a laugh. “There’s so many bugs.”

Luckily for Taylor, she seemingly didn’t have any more unwanted creepy crawlies show up during the show and was able to finish off her set sans coughing.

The unusual moment sparked many hilarious tweets from fans, with some Twitter users quipping that they wished they could have been the bug that became dinner for Taylor.

Last month, the Karma crooner proved yet again that she will go to great lengths to keep her shows rolling along no matter what after she chose to perform in a hellish downpour until nearly 2am. 

The brave moment landed the singer heaps of praise on Twitter, with one user tweeting: “Taylor Swift performed her full set in a lot of rain until damn near 2am last night after 4 hours of a lightening delay? SHE IS BAD ASS. So are her fans.” 

Taylor jump-started her massively successful Eras Tour back in March, which is set to wrap up its US leg in August in Los Angeles.

European dates are yet to be confirmed.
