Michael Clifford, guitarist of the Australian boy band 5 Seconds of Summer, was shuffled off to the hospital yesterday after he suffered a stage 2 Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial during a show at Wembley Arena in London. HuffPo says that toward the end of their show, Michael got a little too close to one of the pyrotechnics and dude flamed out more than a drunken me when an Aqua song comes on. Michael’s hair caught on fire and his face got burned to the point where he nows knows what it feels like to toss Prince Hot Ginge’s salad. He ran off stage and the rest of the show was canceled.
Michael later let 5SoS’ fans know that he’s okay by tweeting this picture of him looking like the star of a no-budget, fuck effort production of Phantom of the Opera.
Michael tweeted this note along with the picture: “What the fucks up. sorry I couldnt finish the encore, but at least I look like two face. thanks for worrying every1 x”
Michael was well enough to perform with 5 Seconds of Summer at their final show at Wembley tonight. His face was fine and I’m sure he stayed away from those pyrotechnics the same way my hairspray-loving cousin stays away from lit-up birthday cakes at parties.
First Enrique Iglesias almost gets his finger bangin’ finger cut off by a drone, then Dave Grohl cracks a leg bone during a show and now this?! QUICK! Everybody form a protective prayer circle around Barry Manilow before a giant neon palm tree falls on him while performing “Copacabana” somewhere.
