(CNN) — Shakira blames her cell phone for a sea lion attack in South Africa.

The Colombian pop star dished about the incident on her Facebook page.

She cozied up to the sea lions in Cape Town on Sunday to take pictures. That’s when, she says, one of them jumped out of the water and tried to bite her.

The singer scratched her hand on some rocks while trying to get away.

Shakira believes the sea lion was confused by the shiny reflection of the Blackberry she used to snap the photos.
