Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga went from “Born This Way” to “Torn This Way” over the weekend when she split her Versace latex pants while kicking off a North American tour in Vancouver. Despite giving her little monsters a partial view of the moon during “Heavy Metal Lover,” Gaga kept performing. Later in the concert, she had this message for her fans, which suggests she cares little for seam-y episode: “No matter how many rhinestones on my jeans, no matter how many fancy wigs I have, just remember that I don’t give a fuck about anything but you and the music.”

Bill Clinton famously had trouble keeping his pants on during his presidency, and in 2011, Usher had a similar problem while performing at a gala in Clinton’s honor. While singing “OMG,” Usher realized he had split his pants down the front of his leg. But like a trouper, he kept performing and simply told the crowd, “I work hard!” Later in the show, Ellen DeGeneres, the evening’s host, joked, with the audience, “Sorry I’m late. I had a rip in my pants and I had to fix it.”

Sofia Vergara

Twenty minutes before Modern Family won Best Comedy at the 2012 Emmy Awards, Sofia Vergara’s curvy figure threw her a dangerous curve when she split her Zuhair Murad gown down the back. But Vergara showed she had a great sense of humor about the accident, tweeting pictures of her exposed rear with the caption, “’Yes!!!! This happend 20 min before we won!!!! Jajajajja. I luv my life!!!!” Fortunately, Vergara had an “emergency team” to repair the dress, and she enjoyed the rest of the evening fully covered. “I partyy like a mermaid!” she tweeted later that evening.

Kim Kardashian

Given some of Kim Kardashian’s video work over the years, having a skintight leather dress rip minutes before a talk-show appearance may not be the most embarrassing incident the reality princess has ever faced. “About to do Jimmy Kimmel & my whole dress rips!” she tweeted last June. “Help!!! Time to sew me in...praying this works!” It did, and Kardashian’s modesty was preserved.


Robbie Williams

Eight years after he first sang “Come Undone,” Robbie Williams came undone during a 2011 concert in Cardiff. While performing “Let Me Entertain You,” Williams’s trousers ripped, but the cheeky singer didn’t let it faze him. “I’m so excited I split my kecks,” he said matter of factly before taking off his pants, and wiggling for the crowd in his black briefs. Ever the exhibitionist, Williams even encouraged the audience to take videos and post them on his website.

Janelle Monae

How’s this for irony: while performing at BET’s Rip the Runway event in 2010, Janelle Monáe ripped her pants, revealing a black thong. Fortunately, Monáe was singing “Tightrope” and not “Many Moons,” or the accident would have seemed truly suspicious.

Josh Hutcherson

Hunger Games fans who can’t wait to see [SPOILER ALERT!] Peeta propose to Katniss in November’s Catching Fire may wish they could watch the first take. “Actually, funny story,” Josh Hutcherson told MTV of filming the scene with Jennifer Lawrence, “the very first time I went to get down on one knee, my pants ripped right down the crotch. The worst thing that could happen when you’re proposing to somebody is that your pants rip right down the crotch, and that’s what happened to Peeta. So ... he’s doomed. He’s doomed. Poor guy, he just can’t catch a break.”

Kate Moss

Pop quiz: If Kate Moss heads out to a London fashion gala with Courtney Love at 9 p.m., which one of the women will have a hole in her dress by 3 a.m.?  If you said “Courtney Love,” guess again. In 2007, Moss and Love arrived at the Golden Age of Couture event at the Victoria and Albert Museum, but the former lead singer of Hole failed to notice the supermodel’s two-foot satin train and stepped on the gown, ripping it. “Throughout the course of the evening the hole, which started just above the small of her back, began to spread,” one guest told The Daily Mail.  “She took it in surprisingly good humour though, shrugging it off with a giggle and helping herself to another glass of wine ... It is to Kate’s credit that she didn’t let the rip spoil her fun. Instead, she simply rolled up the gown and disguised the hole as best she could.”
