Katy had a dramatic night

TAGS:

Katy Perry got a serious scare while on tour last year.

The 27-year-old singer thought a bomb had been planted backstage at one of her gigs after sniffer dogs caught a whiff of something as she was preparing to perform.

‘Right before I was supposed to go on stage, there was a bomb threat,’ says Katy.

‘You know those bomb-sniffing dogs? They were everywhere.

‘They started sniffing a backpack near my dressing room.’

Luckily for Katy – who signed her divorce papers from Russell Brand with a smiley face at the LA Superior Court last month – the incident turned out to be a false alarm.

But she was still rushed out of the building and away from thousands of fans who were waiting to see her sing.

‘Well, they had to put me in an armoured car,’ Katy tells Interview magazine.

‘But we found out at the end that it was chicken the dogs were sniffing.’
