While partying at a nightclub following the MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday, Katy Perry badly injured her leg and had to be taken to a local hospital in Toronto, Canada.
The ‘I Kissed A Girl’ hitmaker had as many as 17 stitches on her right leg to be up and about.
Two days after injury
The injury did not deter the singer to perform live at MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto in a body-hugging, patterned mini-dress. Her striped boots were not high enough to cover the long beige bandage over her wound.
The performance came Tuesday, two days after the injury.
"17 stitches later... Don't make fun of my dance moves tomorrow. That's what got me here in the 1st place! Thanks for the souvenir Canada :)!" the American singer-songwriter and musician had tweeted ahead of the show.
Katy’s fans hope that she recuperates fast and delivers dazzling performances as ever.
"Thinking about getting a candy cane walker made for this performance coming up... I will be expecting YOU to dance for me, okay?!" read the tweet.
The post injury performance was indeed an energetic performance. However, wisely enough, Perry toned down her dance moves.
And then she marched, or limped off if you like, to the airport in the same attire.
She Tweeted: "haven't had the chance to change my outfit from my performance an hour ago & I'm at the airport looking like a candywhore.…. how embarrassing."
Russell loves her
Katy, who is to marry Brit comic Russell Brand, had to make do without any soothing cuddles from her fiancé. The latter is in Dublin, bracing for the Irish premiere of his new movie, Get Him to the Greek.
He may not be physically present with the stunning brunette, but Russell’s love and wishes are always with her.
Russell said he loved to refer to Miss Perry as his wife even though they have not tied the nuptial knot as yet.
"I call her my wife already, it's nice. I'm quite excited about it when I think about it now, but sometimes you're nervous, of course," said Russell.
Meanwhile, Katy’s fans hope that she recuperates fast and delivers dazzling performances as ever.
Not to miss her pre-wedding hen party for which everyone is waiting fervently. After all, Katy’s pal, Rihanna, has to ‘bare-it-all’ then.
Katy said of her chum, "She's hot, I love her. She's just the coolest chick and I want all of her clothes.”
