Jason Derulo left his fans concerned on Tuesday, after sharing a TikTok video of himself seemingly breaking his two front teeth.

The chart-topping singer shared a video of himself performing what he described as a “life hack”, chowing down on a corn cob stuck on the end of a handheld drill.

During the video, Jason is then heard yelping in pain, as he reveals that his teeth have been broken by the stunt, warning in the caption: “Don’t try this.”

 

Don’t worry, though, his teeth are actually fine, and the video – only slightly less distressing than his turn in Cats – was actually just a prank.

The following day, he confirmed his pearly whites were fully intact in a second upload, showing off his full set of dominos before, naturally, breaking into an impromptu dance routine. 

 

Jason is one of the many big-name stars that have turned to TikTok to keep us all entertained during lockdown.

In the last few weeks we’ve seen him trying his hand at dance challenges…

Olly Murs has been making headlines with his TikTok uploads, too, although admittedly it hasn’t always been for the reasons he was hoping for.
