Last night Katy Perry sported a nude bodysuit as she took to the stage at the MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA’s) in Toronto, Canada, to perform her new track Wide Awake.
However, despite the outfit being concealed somewhat by a huge pair of butterfly wings she was wearing for the rendition, it was when Katy Perry made her way off the stage after collecting her award for International Artist that she ran into trouble with the outfit.
But luckily Katy Perry thought quickly and decided to use her MuchMusic award – a long black rectangular box – to maintain her modesty by concealing her rear as she exited the stage after picking up the prize from Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale.
The bodysuit was just one of three outfits Katy Perry sported at last night’s star-studded awards.
She had earlier arrived on the red carpet dressed as a Marvel-esque superhero in a black and gold gown with cartoon princess hair, accompanied by a mini-army of children dressed in tiny replicas of previous outfits worn by the star.
Katy Perry later toned things down with a prim pair of black culottes and a cream and black lace high necked fitted top, before changing into her bodysuit for the performance of Wide Awake.
The singer debuted the tune at the Billboard Awards in May with an elaborate performance in Las Vegas which saw her lowered onto the stage on a swing wearing a wedding dress.
She was then thrown across the stage as a long haired groom tried to catch her.
The lyrics clearly relate to the breakdown of her 14 month marriage in December last year.
Katy Perry sings: “I’m wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong? I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn’t dive in, I wouldn’t bow down.”
She even hints in the song that the marriage was over for a while.
“Not losing any sleep, I picked up every piece and landed on my feet. Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion’s den. I don’t have to pretend. The story’s over now, the end.”
