Even celebs can have awkward encounters with other celebs. Chrissy Teigen, for example, inadvertently insulted Katy Perry to her face.
Teigen joined Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday's Tonight Show, and she recalled going to the Inauguration Ceremony back in January, and the special celebration event in the evening, which concluded with a performance from Perry and a mind-blowing fireworks show that lit up Washington, D.C.
"We ran into Katy Perry after, and I always say dumb things, I always get so nervous..." Teigen shared. "I hadn't seen Katy in so long, and I was like, 'Oh, I typically hate fireworks, but that was amazing. That was so beautiful."
"But then, I think she heard that I hate 'Firework,' like the song?" Teigen continued, referring to Perry's megahit 2010 single. "And I wanted to die! I felt so bad! I always do that."
That wasn't the only super-awkward run-in Teigen opened up about during her chat. She also reflected on the time she seemingly thought Michael Keaton was a waiter.
Teigen and Fallon played a game called "Best Worst First," where they had to share different stories about their best or worst experiences in random situations.
The first prompt was "Best Celebrity Encounter," but the first thing that came to her mind was something a little less favorable.
"God, I think it was after the Golden Globes -- oh, no, this might be 'worst," Teigen said with a laugh.
Looking back at the event, she explained that she "was drinking a lot" at the time, and she "saw somebody at the entrance holding a glass of champagne."
"So I just went up and I took it and I said, 'Thank you,'" she continued, adding that her husband, John Legend, had to explain who it was. "John goes, 'That was Michael Keaton.'"
"It was not someone serving champagne?" Fallon clarified while laughing.
"It was not! And I'm so embarrassed by it still, I could die," Teigen said. "But I just took it, I drank it and I left."
Fallon consoled her by suggesting that at least Keaton would have "been a good sport about it."
Right after the inauguration, and Biden took over the official @POTUS account, Teigen became one of 13 people the account followed -- and the only person who wasn't a politician or directly connected to Biden's administration.
According to Teigen, she was very excited by the follow, but realized it was a bad idea almost instantly.
"The second it happened, I was like, 'Oh s**t," she explained, adding, "I don't believe he's like Trump and actively strolling through, but it was so amazing because for years I'd been actively shunned... but then it became too much."
"Also when you're on that list, a bunch of weird people go to his account, and they don't know you at all, so they go, 'Who's this chick?' Then they come to my page and it's just a hell hole," Teigen added. "So life is better now."
