This was a moment many fans have been waiting for – Harry Styles had a wardrobe malfunction on stage.

Fans gathered at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California, to see solo-star Styles perform his first concert of the year, and got more than they paid for. In the middle of performing “Music For a Sushi Restaurant,” Styles slid down to his knees during the performance and split the seem of his brown leather pants for fans to see.


Buts fans weren’t the only ones watching, as his celebrity crush Jennifer Aniston was also in the crowd.

When he saw that his pants had split, his eyes widened and he quickly covered the rip, skipping to the opposite end of the stage and stomping his foot in comedic frustration.

Styles confirmed that his pants splitting was indeed not a part of the show, and cheekily apologized to audience members. Cameras captured him as he tied a pride flag around his waist and asked the audience members if they were okay.

“I promise it’s not part of the show,” He says, “It’s a family show. Or is it?”

His playful discourse with the audience covered the embarrassing moment, and he continued to sing for the crowd directly after.

Fans took to Twitter to blame the incident on the “Aniston Effect,” which they also blame for Style’s spill during his 2019 performance of “Adore You.”

Styles labeled Aniston as his celebrity crush on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2020. The two have also been seen to occasionally wear slightly different versions of the same outfit, a point Aniston poked fun at on Instagram by posting, “Just call me Harriet Styles.”

Styles released his third album in May but has revealed that he already has another in the works. The inspired writer will continue his Love On Tour 2023 tour and possibly finish the year at the Grammys. The Don’t You Worry Darling star is nominated for six Grammy Awards.
