Katy Perry’s Eye Twitches During Las Vegas Show
In the clip, shared on TikTok, Perry poses on stage in a dress made out of soda cans as the crowd cheers. Her right eye appears to close on its own, and Perry touches her temple a few times to get it to stay open. She then tells the crowd to make noise for her band, without acknowledging what just happened.
Fans have been sharing their theories about what might have caused the strange moment, and they range from joking to serious. Some fans thought Perry was secretly a robot who was glitching, while others joked that her eye was damaged after getting slimed in the face at the Kids’ Choice Awards years ago.
One fan on TikTok thought it could be Perry’s false eyelashes sticking together, while another replied, “It can be from nerves, stress, just pushing herself to [sic] hard. There’s a muscle that connects at your temple.” Other people simply thought Perry was doing it on purpose as part of the performance.
Perry Has Said She Has a ‘Wonk Eye’
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time the subject of Katy Perry’s eye has has come up. She’s spoken in the past about what she calls her “wonk eye.” Last year, after American Idol contestant Caleb Kennedy opened up about his lazy eye, Perry talked about her own experience.
She said she “used to be worried” about her “wonk eye,” adding that people “have created a fandom” around it. Perry added, “It’s my right eye. So just celebrate all that stuff. Don’t worry about it.”
In a past video interview, Perry shared what she has in her bag, which included eye drops. She explained, “I got a prescription for my wonk eye. To make this eye go bigger whenever I take pictures, ’cause I have a slight wonk.”
However, the eye Perry pointed to in that video was actually her left eye. Maybe we’ll never know the real answer to what was happening on stage in Vegas.
