SKY FERREIRA REVEALS BANDAGED-UP LEG IN NEW VIDEO

Sky Ferreira

In February, Sky Ferreira had to pull out of supporting Miley Cyrus's Bangerz tour after falling off stage during her performance.  After completing her set, she was rushed to the hospital where she received  60 stitches.  Once she heals up, she's expected to rejoin the Bangerz tour.  

Today, she released her new video and you can defintely see the bandage still covering her leg but the good news is that she looks completely healed from the injury, dancing and kicking ass in the new video for "I Blame Myself" which is off her debut album "Night Time, My Time."

Sooo excited about this movie "Gone Girl."  Love the book (and the twist) and today the trailer for the movie just premiered. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, the flick is directed by David Fincher and stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Sela Ward and Tyler Perry.  

The new trailer features the song "She" covered by the THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS' lead singer Richard Butler.  The song was written and performed by Charles Aznavour in 1974 and was made popular again by Elvis Costello which he covered in 1999 for the the Notting Hill soundtrack.  

The movie hits theaters October 3rd.  Check out the trailer below.
