The singer posted a picture of her singed eyelashes and eyebrows on Instagram, and wrote:

It was absolutely terrifying and I wouldn’t want anyone to go through anything similar. Please be SO careful using gas stoves at any time but especially during festival season when one’s reaction times may be a little off.
