Katy Perry cautions that her latex American Idol dress is prone to fart noises: ‘If you think I’m farting on live television I’m not!’
The always daring Katy Perry gave a PSA ahead of her American Idol appearance by touching on what she calls ‘dress farts.’
The 36-year-old pop star turned judge shared a look at her blue latex ensemble ahead of Monday’s taping, warning that it was prone to some flatulence-mirroring sound effects.
‘If you think I’m farting on live television I’m not!’ she told her followers, while teasing some non-wardrobe related plot twists on the program.
The longstanding ABC singing competition will be narrowing contestants down from 16 to 12 following an overnight vote that secured 10 participants.
The other six contestants are set to battle it out for a chance at the other two spots.
While teeing up an ‘exciting, on the edge of your seat’ night of television, Perry could not help but preemptively get ahead of any possible wardrobe malfunctions.
‘If you think I’m farting on live television I’m not…it’s just going to be my dress,’ she assured her fans.
Perhaps the most pressing plot twist thus far — judge Luke Bryan was sidelined from the show unexpectedly following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
‘I’m sad to say I won’t be a part of tonight’s first live @americanidol show. I tested positive for COVID but I’m doing well and look forward to being back at it soon,’ he tweeted.
Paula Abdul was tapped to step in temporarily until the country singer is rendered symptom free following a mandatory quarantine.
Bryan had previously spoken about the challenges of filming the often ’emotional’ show during the pandemic in conversation with People.
‘The interesting thing is just trying to navigate all of the new rules of COVID-19…The fact that me and Lionel [Richie] and Katy can’t walk out there and do the human element — hug and show support and love, is very, very tough,’ he said.
