Katy Perry Gets Stuck in the Air During Her Concert (Video)

Katy Perry had a mechanical malfunction during the latest stop on her Witness world tour!

The 32-year-old singer got stuck in the air when the platform she floats over the audience on stopped working. The concert took place on Wednesday (October 18) in Nashville, Tenn.

“This is the first time I’ve been stuck in space,” Katy said, referring to the float’s depiction of Saturn. “I know I’m kind of a space cadet, but actually, this thing is stuck. What should I do? Should I tell some jokes, should I tell some stories, should I just sing another song? You’d better put your phones up, it’s a YouTube moment!”

Pink Regrets Picking Between Team Katy & Team Taylor: 'I Should've Just Kept My Mouth Shut'

Pink is speaking out against pitting pop stars against each other.

The 38-year-old Beautiful Trauma singer revealed to the LA Times that she briefly got caught up in some unwanted drama when asked “Team Katy or Team Taylor?” during a radio interview in August. She ultimately picked Taylor – but seems to regret that she even made a pick at all.

“I should’ve just kept my mouth shut, because I don’t believe that. I don’t care. But I felt rushed and I didn’t know what to do. And I paid for it, because then the next day: ‘Pink is Team Taylor,’” she explained.

She also reacted to the climate of pop star feuds in general: “It surprises me how snarky it’s gotten. There were always these feuds between rock stars — I mean, if you like Oasis, there’s always a feud. But it’s gotten pretty bad. And we’re giving our power away by playing into it,” she said.

“My wish is for some freakin’ peace! Don’t ya think?” Katy said to the crowd before her song “Part of Me.”

She continued, “This is one of my favorite songs to sing – I want to dedicate it to you guys. You chose to come out and overcome this dumb fear. You chose to come into the community of music and to be together…and be inspired.”

“This week has been crappy. This whole year has been crappy. We’re stronger than that. No one’s gonna steal our joy, are they? We’ve come together tonight just to escape it all a little bit,” Katy concluded.

Russell Brand Reflects on 'Wonderful' Marriage to Katy Perry

Russell Brand is looking back at his marriage with Katy Perry.

During a recent interview on The Wendy Williams Show, the 42-year-old actor reflected on his marriage to the 32-year-old entertainer and nothing but nice things to say about his ex.

“It’s a bit difficult to tell what’s going on in such a situation,” Russell said. “But it was a very, very wonderful time. She was lovely. She’s such a lovely person I’ve got nothing but love for her.”

Russell and Katy married in a lavish, traditional Indian wedding back in 2010 before he filed for divorce two years later.

When asked about Katy‘s new job on American Idol, Russell believes that Katy will be a good judge.

I don’t know much about American Idol or things like that,” Russell said. “I certainly think that she’s probably a very good judge so I certainly wouldn’t comment on how much she’s earning in the negative. I certainly wish her all the best in all of her endeavors.”
