Taylor Swift was left with a dental dilemma during a recent gig in Pittsburgh when she banged her tooth on a microphone.

The country star was performing her hit “I Knew You Were Trouble” when she smacked the mic into her mouth and cracked a tooth.

She says, “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.”

“Part of it fell onto the stage and I was like, ‘Oh, I wonder how bad that was. I wonder which tooth that is…'”

But the mishap hasn’t left too much damage and Swift won’t be rushing to her dentist and asking him to fix her her smile: “I’m not doing anything about it. It’s just gonna be a little bit jagged, I guess.”

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
