Taylor Swift candidly spoke about her two deepest fears in an episode of the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” to air on Monday, admitting that she’s terrified of sea urchins and getting framed for murder.

Wait, what!?

When DeGeneres asked the singer if she is seriously afraid of sea urchins, Swift shuddered and warned the laughing audience, “If you knew what sea urchins were, you would be terrified of them!” The daytime host noted, “The poor things are just minding their business,” before Swift interjected, “No! They are not! That’s the thing. They are like a grenade.”

“You can’t see a sea urchin,” the “Shake It Off” singer explained. “If you are in the Caribbean, you are like, ‘This water is so beautiful. It’s amazing.’ You are are walking. It’s clear water. You can’t see a sea urchin is right there and then you step on one. It has barbs and it goes into whatever it touches. And you go to the emergency room and it has to be surgically removed.” She added, “You can lose your foot, you can lose your hand, you can lose your hand trying to get it off of your foot. I don’t like sea urchins.”

DeGeneres then asked Swift to explain her irrational fear of being framed for a crime. The pop star noted, “So many people would frame me… Look at me! I wouldn’t survive in jail.” She added, “I think the dream and the nightmare of being framed comes from like… I could do nothing wrong. I could sit in my house with the cats all day and somehow there can be an article of me buying a house in a place I have never been or dating a guy I have never met. But then you take it a step further and, then in the nightmare world, it is being framed for murder.”

“I don’t think that’s a step,” said DeGeneres. “That’s a leap. I think you are fine. But I think you would even have fans in prison, and they would take care of you and they would all love you.”

Swift, who recently served as a mentor on “The Voice,” also dished to DeGeneres about a particular “weakness” Adam Levine has.
