While doing a little cleanup in my office just found Katy Perry’s earring….
Katy Perry was performing at the 2009 Caribana Festival in Crans-Sur-Céligny, Switzerland. I was there, as every year, as photographer. So usually the first 3 songs of any artist performing, the photographers are in the trench just in front of the stage.
Katy was wearing 2 fashion earrings as you can see here:

The earring landed just 5cm in front of me so I could grab it. I tried to give the earring back to her after the concert – but I had no backstage access. As it was no real valuable jewelry, I finally kept it in my pocket. At least I have one story more to tell….
Here it is:
