Australian singer Missy Higgins abruptly left the stage mid-concert in Sydney on Sunday, and later apologised to fans for her sudden departure.
The heavily pregnant singer was performing at Anita’s Theatre in Thirroul, south of Sydney, when she unexpectedly left the stage. The reason for her urgency?
She needed to go to the bathroom – and immediately. Hence the – ahem – ‘pregnant pause’ in her music.
Even though it’s an uncontrollable urge – due to the extra pressure on the bladder – that every woman who’s been pregnant can relate to, Higgins still felt she should explain herself to the people who had paid to see her.
“That was incredibly awkward, that has never happened to me before,” she reportedly told the crowd upon returning to the stage, according to The Daily Mail.
Luckily, her backup singers literally had her back, and happily improvised during her absence by singing “Missy is doing a wee.”
