Glee’s Jayma Mays says a bug lived in her ear


The Glee star stopped by The Tonight Show last night after battling what she thought was a serious ear infection. It turns out, what was actually causing the pain in her ear was far more disgusting than a mere infection. “This was really serious. I did not know if I could come tonight it was so serious,” Mays dished to Jay Leno and fellow guest Ashton Kutcher. “So like a week ago, I started getting this really bad ear infection,” she explained. “A couple of days into this infection, I woke up in the middle of the night screaming in pain like horrible, horrible pain and blood started coming out of my ear.” Mays said she took an aspirin and put a heating pad on it before going to the doctor the next day. She then revealed, “The nurse puts my head to the side and does the little drops in my ear. When she put the drops in my ear, it started to drown the insect that was living in there. So it climbed out of my ear.” “No!” a grossed-out Kutcher yelled while squeamishly moving around in his chair. “The blood was from it biting and scratching,” Mays continued. “It is because my ears were too clean. Apparently, you’re not supposed to clean your ears, because the wax prevents bugs from living inside. I’m too clean.” Lesson learned, Jayma!
