Katy Perry has finally addressed her bizarre eye glitch.

The 'Teenage Dream' singer sparked an onslaught of conspiracy theories earlier this week when a video of her eye twitching on stage during a show went viral on TikTok.

In the video, Perry can be seen on stage during one of her Las Vegas residency shows, dressed in a can-inspired silver costume. As she poses and looks out at the cheering crowd, the 38-year-old appears to be struggling to open one eye, which keeps closing.

Watch the odd moment below:

Some fans speculated that the pop star had been replaced by a robot, which was malfunctioning on stage. Others theorized that she was suffering the side effects of a Covid vaccine, while some claimed that her eyelash glue was simply sticking her eyes together.

After days of speculation, Perry has put the rumors to bed. Taking to Instagram, she shared a clip of the moment and revealed that it had all been a publicity stunt for her upcoming show dates.

"POV: When you see new 2023 PLAY dates," she wrote in overlay text on the video. In the caption, she explained that the weird glitch had in fact been her "broken doll eye party trick".

"Welcoming all my #flatearthers #spaceisfakers #birdsarentrealers #skyisntbluers to come see my broken doll eye party trick IRL in Vegas next year," she wrote.

"The show’s set list is a fun [rollercoaster ride] through memory lane going all the way back to 2008, a time when we weren't all frozen by the paranoia of our own echo chambers," she continued.

Perry went on to promote her show, writing: "This show is a nonstop party about finding unconditional love and strangely (for me) not political at all, heck I pour beer out of my tits (that’s a party trick too… I don’t actually lactate hops silly goose!)"

She finished the post by writing: "Hope to sing along with you in 2023! And we’ll drink, this one’s on me, cause we're all #chainedtothealgorithm #therealproblemlolhaha."
