Katy Perry nearly didn't make it to the Met Gala this year, all since her ride began acting like an old hunk of garbage ... be that as it may, she had a supplication some place there in the engine. Katy was literally in transit (parade style, it appears) to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC in front of the Gala Monday, when the greater part of the sudden her 1930s-style whip wouldn't begin about a square far from the setting. Eyewitnesses say it was working fine and dandy minutes earlier.
In the video - obtained by TMZ - you see the panic set in as her driver tries a few times to get it turned on, without any result at first. Luckily for her ... the third (fourth? fifth?) time ended up being an appeal. She got a big cheer from the swarm around her ... and somebody even called her "such a darling" and "so hot" in her fallen blessed messenger outfit.
