Los Angeles: 'Gossip Girl' star Blake Lively was attacked by bees just before her 27th birthday. The actress, whose birthday was earlier this week, detailed a terrifying pre-birthday encounter that she had with bees in a new post on her lifestyle website, reportedly.
"I spent the week leading up to my big day shooting content for Preserve's coming months. Just yesterday, the final day of the shoot, I felt an electric shock of energy -- was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older... I think.
"But this felt terrible. Does your back quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell... Then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting," she wrote.
The singer went on to explain that she was not experiencing a quarter-life crisis, but in fact, a physical attack from a swarm of bees.
"I don't know enough about insects to say if they were wasps, honeybees or Mother Nature's miniature flying tasers," Lively wrote.
