Duffy's Hair Catches On Fire

Aimee Anne DuffyThe media reported today that Duffy's hair had caught on fire.

Duffy is the wildly popular blonde Welsh soul singer who fronts for Mercy, a very popular group.  It was reported she had accidentally set her beautiful hair on fire while she was backstage at a Coldplay concert in Cleveland, Ohio.

While the news of hair on fire might initially sound humorous to some, in reality it was quite a serious life threatening situation for the young star.

Her blonde tresses caught fire when they made contact with a candle in her dressing room.  Duffy admitted she wanted to give her dressing room "a little bit of razzle dazzle".  So she dimmed the lights and lit a candle.

The trouble occurred when she bent down to clean up melting wax, thinking the candle was out.  It wasn't and caught the entire left side of her hair in flames.

Although catching her hair on fire was frightening, she was also scheduled to meet Chris Martin from Coldplay.

She recalls, "at that moment, Chris was walking down the corridor to say, 'Hi'. I hadn't met him before and the place stank of burning hair."

"Somebody came in and said, 'Is someone cooking chicken?' I had black crumbs of hair all down me so I had to give it a chop and pin it back. It was really bad and properly embarrassing. Chris could smell it, you couldn't avoid smelling it.

The morale to this story?  Keep your hair away from flames of any kind.
