Katy Perry asked her fiancé Orlando Bloom to undo a corset she was wearing so that she could breathe and sing onstage

  • Katy Perry was honored at Variety’s 2021 Power of Women event on Thursday, and performed a song.
  • But before singing, she asked fiancé Orlando Bloom to undo her corset because she couldn’t sing.
  • After he loosened it, she said she could breathe again and called Bloom her “hero.”

Orlando Bloom helped his fiancée Katy Perry overcome a fashion mishap at a star-studded event last week.

Perry was onstage at Variety’s Power of Women event on Thursday, about to sing “What Makes a Woman” off her 2020 album “Smile.” But before she got the chance, she seemingly realized that the corset bodice on her dress was too tight to breathe or sing comfortably.

“Orlando, can you undo my corset?” she said into her microphone after taking the stage. “It’s a little tight. I can’t sing.”

Variety shared a video of the interaction on TikTok, which showed Bloom quickly making his way over to the stage after Perry requested his help. He began unfastening the dress, and then gave Perry a small kiss on the back of her shoulder.

“Pull it all the way down — I have a girdle in here,” Perry said. “All the way down. OK, now I can breathe.” 

She also called Bloom her “hero.”

Perry wore a shapeless Schiaparelli gown made from lilac fabric for the event. The dress had off-the-shoulder balloon sleeves and a long skirt that reached the floor and cascaded around her ankles. She also wore dangling earrings and a pulled-back hairstyle.
