Whether on the red carpet, in front of the cameras, or on stage at their own concerts, many Hollywood stars have experienced wardrobe malfunctions. And Katy Perry is the latest celebrity to join the list, with her outfit mishap making headlines. But she won't be losing any sleep over it...

In a recent appearance on American Idol, the singer had a fashion fiasco that left the audience, as well as fellow contestants, in shambles. It all went down during her impromptu performance of her 2010 hit single Teenage Dream, along with fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. During the song, Perry bent down and appeared to accidentally rip her red leather pants in the process. The audience stared in shock... but the singer managed to laugh the whole thing off. "Can I get some tape?" she laughed as she walked off the stage. LOL.

But even as Perry made her way off the stage, the humorous moment still wasn't over - her fellow judges made sure of that. Bryan yelled, "They busted," as contestants laughed and pointed, while Richie exclaimed, "The concert is officially over!" A few crew members were then seen rushing to her aid with some yellow duct tape. They quickly covered the rip in the singer's pants after she requested that they "tape [her] butt." The American Idol judge then hilariously apologized to the audience for the mishap and took her seat at the judges' table.

The 37-year-old pop star later poked fun at the funny incident on Instagram, writing, "Ima get ur heart racing in my skin-tight jeans on #americanidol tonight tune in now for a RIPPING good time." Fans in the comments admired her light-hearted approach to the situation. Especially since it wasn't her first wardrobe malfunction! One user in the comments section reminded her of a similar mishap that happened to the singer in 2018. The hilarious comment read, "Each season you rip your pants." In case you forgot the 2018 American Idol incident - Perry was wearing a silver jumpsuit that split open after she let out a laugh. Realizing what had happened, she exclaimed, "I just split my pants!" The way things are going, something tells us this might not be the last time Katy Perry laughs off an awkward moment. Stay tuned!
