Mark Ronson interview cut short after musician attacked by swarm of bees

Ronson was being interviewed by Jameela Jamil at his mansion in Hollywood

Mark Ronson was forced to run from an interview after he was attacked by a swarm of bees.

The musician was being interviewed by DJ Jameela Jamil in Los Angeles when they noticed an unusual cloud near them.

“We were doing an interview in this mansion in Hollywood Hills. It was open air, and there was a massive feast that we’d laid out for Mark,” Jamil told the Sun. “This huge cloud started coming towards us and we couldn’t work out what it was. It turned out to be the biggest swarm of killer bees that I’ve ever seen. They descended on the buffet. We had literally seconds to run into the house and get behind the glass.”


Jamil added that it was “every man for himself” as they raced away from the swarm. “It was the most scared I’ve ever been. I didn’t know what it was and then suddenly I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s killer bees! Those are killer bees!’ I just ran, food flew everywhere and I destroyed the whole set. It was terrifying. We were both there and we just ran for it,” she said. “Neither of us tried to save each other. It was every man for himself. It was like, 500 bees. It was horrible. I would never have left a man down, but we both turned into Usain Bolt then.”

Mark Ronson was recently confirmed to headline a gig for Jameela Jamil’s Why Not People? – the first company of its kind putting on live events for people with disabilities. The ‘Uptown Special’ artist was also knocked off his Number One spot in the Official Albums Chart yesterday by Meghan Trainor’s debut album ‘Title’. Ronson stayed at the top of the Official UK Single Chart with ‘Uptown Funk’ however, despite competition from last week’s highest new entry ‘LA Love’ by Fergie and ‘Take Me To Church’ by Hozier.
