TAYLOR SWIFT REVEALS FEAR OF ... SEA URCHINS?!: Taylor Swift appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to discuss her new album and her debut Monday night as a mentor on The Voice, but in a series of advance clips, she also discusses her deepest, darkest fear. Taylor, it turns out, has an irrational fear of sea urchins.
When Ellen tries to argue that sea urchins are just sitting there minding their own business, Taylor counters, "They're sitting there waiting to completely injure you!"
She adds, "You're like, 'This water's so beautiful, it's amazing,' and you're walking -- it's clear water -- you can't see a sea urchin's right there! And then you step on one, and it has barbs that go into whatever it touches, and then you have to go to the emergency room and it has to be surgically removed!"
Taylor continues, attempting to justify her fear. "You could lose your foot. You could lose your hand. You could lose your hand trying to get it off of your foot!"
