Oooh, this is a good one.
As I told you a few days ago, Taylor Swift was pranked by Justin Bieber for the upcoming revival of MTV's Punk'd. This go around, though, rather than Ashton Kutcher pranking all his celebrity friends it will be celebrities pranking other celebrities and Ashton will play producer or some such role.
Other than knowing that Taylor was punk'd by The Biebs, we had no further details. Rumors are swirling now, though, that the prank involved careless fireworks and ruined weddings.
“Justin called Taylor Swift and asked if she would come over to his beach house and help him write a song for Selena Gomez. Taylor agreed and even asked him to open for her at her show that night at the Staples Center!” an insider tells Hollywoodlife.com.
Once Justin was able to lure Taylor to his home, he convinced her to help him set off some fireworks in his backyard. But their fun time goes awry when the fireworks set off a fire on a boat off -shore. The boat was full of actors (unbeknownst to Swift) who had to jump off and swim to shore. To make things worse, the people on the boat were having a “wedding,” so the bride, groom, and priest in full wedding-attire swim up and start accusing Taylor of ruining their special day!
“Taylor didn’t start crying but was very freaked out and was like ‘OMG IM SO SORRY’! Justin was trying to downplay the situation, When he said she’d been punk’d she started laughing and said, ‘How could you do this to me?!’” the source reveals.
You know, when I was a kid my dad lived across the street from a huge junk yard in Portland, Oregon. One 4th of July we were letting off bottle rockets and ended up catching the junk yard on fire. There were firemen and cops and gawkers. It was pretty traumatic – and exciting – for a kid at the tender age of 7 or whatever I was at the time. I still can't light fireworks at my house without cringing and worrying about lighting the world on fire.
So let's just say that I definitely feel for Taylor if this was indeed her prank.
MTV hasn't set a premiere date for Punk'd to return (in fact, I'm not even sure they've confirmed it's coming back), but I will definitely keep you in the know when I find anything out.
