Jamelia Niela Davis needed fake lips for a music video. She is a well known British singer/songwriter and model endured an injury to her mouth as she was doing a Dirty Dancing left with Blue star Duncam James. The eight UK top ten singles vocalist was enjoying her time with James when the two attempted the famous routine in which Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the 1987 hit film.
The first time the attempted the lift it was smooth, however the nest one Jamelia slipped, cutting her lip which then cause some panic as her video shoot See It in a Boy’s Eyes’ may be a right off and scheduled for the following day. However, her injury was masked by CGI trickery in the final video.
Speaking on British talk show ‘Loose Women’ – on which Jamelia is now a panellist – Duncan explained:
“We actually have a funny story together.
“We were at this party the night before and Jamelia had a video shoot the next day for ‘See It In A Boy’s Eyes’ … and we had a few drinks and we were trying to do the lift in ‘Dirty Dancing’. We thought it was kind of cool so we did it once, then we then this is cool and we did it again – she went, ‘Urgh’ and put her tooth through her lips. And she had the shoot the next day.”
Jamelia – who was in fits of giggles while recalling the incident – added:
“If you watch the video they had to cartoon-ise my lip. It’s not my real lip in the video.” (C) BANG Media International
