"What I go through to make videos for y'all," Maeta wrote


Pop singer Maeta recently shared a video on Instagram, telling fans how she was bitten by a snake during a music video production.

She shared footage of the incident on social media last week.

In the short clip, the 21-year-old was seen lying on a carpet, surrounded by a number of snakes. Dressed in black lace, she was seen smiling before one of the snakes crawled up her chin and bit her. Clearly taken aback, Maeta recoiled in pain and pushed the snake away. "Oh it bit her like this," a person off-camera was heard saying as the singer turned away, evidently in pain.

"What I go through to make videos for y'all," Maeta wrote while sharing the video on Instagram. But the same clip was shared on Twitter with the caption: "Never again."

According to People Magazine, none of the snakes being used for the music video were venomous. The singer did not receive any other injuries, except for the bite on her chin.
