“Gossip Girl” alum Taylor Momsen had a very close – too close – encounter with a bat while performing with her band in Spain last week.

The 30-year-old shared one Instagram video on Friday she was showing her on stage with her band The Pretty Reckless in Seville when a bat landed on her leg.

“You're pointing at something and I don't know what you're saying,” Momsen can be heard saying to the crowd. Some people pointed and shouted at her.

A second later she realized what was on her leg.

“There's a flying bat on my leg right now. Can someone please help me?” she said calmly into the microphone.

Several men rushed onstage to help Momsen, who is best known for playing Jenny Humphrey in “Gossip Girl,” as she tried to protect herself from the bat.

“I must really be a witch,” Momsen jokingly told the crowd. “It's fine and the bat is fine. He's going to be my new friend.'

After the performance, Momsen said she was taken to the hospital for an anti-rabies shot.

“He was cute, but yeah, he bit me… so rabies vaccinations for the next two weeks,” she wrote on Instagram.

Momsen thanked the hospital staff, who she said called her “batgirl” after seeing it on the local news.

In a separate one afterMomsen said that “rabies vaccinations are no fun.”

The Pretty Reckless opens for AC/DC on their Power Up Tour.
