Wardrobe malfunctions are an unfortunate part of live performing — remember that time Mariah Carey’s dress unexpectedly popped open on live TV during a “Good Morning America” performance, or when Lenny Kravitz showed fans a whole lotta Lenny when he split his leather pants onstage, revealing he had been going commando?
Now Camila Cabello can lay claim to her very own onstage wardrobe malfunction, which took place when the former Fifth Harmony singer squatted in the midst of her performance at the Z100 Jingle Ball concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden on Friday night, splitting her pants in the process.
A fan tweeted evidence of the split pants, sharing several photos taken from the audience focusing on the destroyed derriere of the sequin-encrusted pants.
Cabello, however, took the whole thing in stride, even joking about it in a series of tweets making fun of her unfortunate wardrobe malfunction.
“One of my fave things to do is rip my pants on stage mid-squat on stage at Madison square garden,” she wrote.
She later retweeted a fan’s tweet of a video featuring SpongeBob ripping the seat of his Squarepants.
