In strange celebrity news that intersects with tech, the iPhone belonging to film star Bette Midler has had some drama. According to a tweet she sent out yesterday, she found a worm crawling out of the earphone jack of her handset. It all started with a tweet on Wednesday saying “World gone mad. AND I dropped my phone in the toilet AGAIN!! I should own stock in Carolina Rice.”
So the star decided to use rice to draw the water out of her iPhone. While it is debatable as to whether this method actually works, it may have led to even more 1st world problems for the diva.
Midler later tweeted, “Grains of rice stuck in phone. This may end my @twitter career.” She followed that up with one that said, “Newest on iPhone saga: so I stuck it overnight in this rice I bought and next morning a tiny worm crawled out of the headphone opening!”
It likely in the rice before she even put the phone in the rice. Although, since she apparently has a habit of dropping her iPhone in the toilet, maybe it came from there. Ewww! The important take away here is this: Bette Midler has worms. A worm at least. Have a look at our handy guide on how to improve your iPhone battery life.
