Taylor Swift burnt herself playing with fireworks every year as a child.
The 'Love Story' singer has revealed she regularly "humiliated" herself during July 4 celebrations, scalding her hands in exactly the same way every time the day came round.
Writing on her MySpace blog, the 19-year-old star said: "I love Sparklers. They're sparkly. I love sparkly things. And glitter. Anyway, story time: When I was younger, I was always that little kid who would run around picking up used sparklers off the ground and I would inevitably pick up the SCALDING HOT BURNING end that was still smoldering.
"Then cue the screaming bloody murder in front of everyone and running into the house to ice your hand. All the adults are shaking their heads because they saw you do the same thing last year. Got to love humiliating childhood memories (sic)."
It not the first time Taylor has spilled embarrassing secrets online.
Last month, she spoke about how her father's "cheeky" sense of humour often leaves her red-faced when they're out in public together.
She wrote on her blog: "I'm walking into the hotel lobby after returning from dinner. It's quiet, serene, beautiful, when... Screaming voice from out of nowhere, 'HEY! THAT'S TAYLOR SWIFT!!' Me, 'Dad. Please stop doing that (sic).' "
