Singer Taylor Momsen bites a bat while performing on stage

Musician and former “Gossip Girl” star Taylor Momsen seems to be taking things in stride after being bitten by a bat while on stage in Spain last week.

Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless were performing a song when a bat attached itself to Momsen’s thigh, according to several videos posted to her Instagram page over the weekend.

One of the videos shows the exact moment Momsen asked the crew for help after realizing a bat was at her feet. In the video, several people run to the stage to help, and the bat is seen flying away moments later. The video also shows footage of Momsen in a hospital who appears to have been shot in the leg.

“I must really be a witch,” she joked to the audience, referencing the song “Witches Burn,” which she was performing when the incident happened.

Momsen wrote in the caption that she “didn’t know” the bat was clinging to her leg “until the incredible crowd kept screaming and pointing.”

“He’s cute, but yeah he bit me,” she added.

Momsen wrote that she will be getting rabies shots for the next two weeks. She also thanked the hospital staff “who called me #batgirl after seeing it on the local news that morning.”

CNN has reached out to Momsen’s rep for an update on the singer’s condition.

Another video posted by Momsen showed the “Gossip Girl” actress walking backstage after the show reacting to the incident, saying the bat was “holding on for dear life” and that it “scared” her at the time.

The rabies virus is spread through direct contact with infected animals, including through saliva or brain and nervous system tissue, according to the CDC. The rabies virus attacks the central nervous system, causing brain disease that can lead to death without treatment.

The CDC recommends seeing a doctor for post-exposure treatment immediately after contact with an animal. Post-exposure treatment for people who have not received the rabies vaccine includes one dose of immune globulin and four doses of vaccine over a two-week period.

Momsen and The Pretty Reckless served as the opening act for AC/DC’s Power Up tour this summer. While having fun with the scary incident, Momsen also posted a photo of herself posing next to a “no bats” sign taped to some of AC/DC’s stage equipment.

“Ok… so @acdc has the best crew ever,” Momsen wrote in the caption. “Love you all!!!”

Momsen is the lead singer for the rock band The Pretty Reckless, which she formed in 2009. She is also known for her role as Jenny Humphrey on the CW show “Gossip Girl,” on which she appeared as a series regular from 2007 to 2010.
