She explained that she had taken a quick trip across London on a motorbike going from an earlier show at the O2 Arena to Wembley. She had worn a white leather motorbike suit for the journey and due to time constraints had not had time to change but had gone straight on stage wearing the biker outfit.
As can be seen from the photo here Rita’s motorbike jacket had a long zip and she was obviously wearing nothing underneath the leather as became all to clear to the Wembley audience as her zip got lower and lower.
After her embarrassing wardrobe malfunction Rita took to Twitter to apologise for her unplanned nipslip: “Yes. It’s true. I got straight off a motorbike from O2 to Wembley, I didn’t have time to change. I didn’t have time to change and then all of a sudden the zip got lower and lower, I rushed on stage and pop! It happened, f**k!”
Rita is not the first woman to suffer a wardrobe malfunction on stage and we doubt very much if she will be the last. She follows a number of very well-known singers who have flashed their fans more than was expected including the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Madonna and most famously Janet Jackson’s Superbowl wardrobe malfunction in 2004.
Rita turned quite a few heads this weekend when she appeared on the X Factor wearing a very hot black catsuit which had cut out panels, causing a few observers to comment that it was almost a post-watershed outfit. Rita was involved with this year’s X Factor earlier on in the show when she appeared as a guest judge.
When host Dermot O’Leary asked which act she liked most Rita replied: “Do you know what I actually love everybody, but to tell you the truth I love watching James Arthur perform…there’s something about James’ voice, but everyone has their own shine.”
