LOS ANGELES-Katy Perry accidentally hit a fan in the face with an inflatable eyeball at her recent concert in Salt Lake City.

The 32-year-old pop superstar was performing ‘Roar’ as part of her ‘Witness’ tour at the Vivint Smart Home Arena when she threw one of the props into the crowd, only for it to smack the concert-goer right in the middle of her face and knock her phone out of her hand.

However, the shocked fan didn’t mind taking a knock and was ‘’laughing uncontrollably’’. Recalling the bizarre incident, the fan said: ‘’Some people were throwing them around, but one landed right by Katy and she kicked it! I didn’t realise that she was kicking it right at my face until it was too late. ‘’The ball hit me right square in the face and knocked my phone out of my hands. I was so shocked and started laughing hysterically. ‘’Everyone around me asked me if I was okay and I was just laughing uncontrollably.’’ It comes after Katy leapt into the arms of fans after becoming stuck on a prop dangling high above the crowd after performing on a floating planet hanging from the roof at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville last month, when she became stranded in mid-air.

 

And Katy even encouraged her fans to film the incident because she knew it was a ‘’whole big deal’’ that would quickly go viral.

Katy told the crowd in a video posted on YouTube: ‘’I’m literally stuck. This is the first time I’ve been stuck in space!

‘’This thing is stuck right now, they’re lowering me down - they’re talking to me in my ear right now. It’s a whole big deal - you’d better pick your phone up because this is a YouTube moment. I could be stuck here forever!

‘’They said they’re going to lower me down. I’m coming down, I swear it was beautiful, you guys made it look s magnificent. Honestly - y’all are the real stars right now.

‘’I do not want to smash you by sitting on you with a planet. I guess I’m just going to have to get down and walk amongst my people. I love this so much. This is what you get for trying to bring out all of space to Nashville.

‘’Shall I just jump?’’

She then crowd-surfed off the planet to rapturous applause from the crowd and was escorted back onto the stage.
