July is the month of stage malfunctions, apparently, starting with Beyoncé's incident in the air, and ending with Taylor Swift suffering the same fate.

The pop superstar was performing her hit single "Delicate" in Philadelphia on Saturday night when her sparkly basket that was supposed to carry her across the stadium stopped.

"I'm pretty sure I'm stuck up here," she told the crowd mid-performance. "It's a nice view though."

After finishing the song, Taylor further explained the sticky situation to worried fans, stating that it's "very important to be honest with friends."

"So what you just saw was me going straight up and down in this sparkly basket. It's supposed to take me to the other side of the stadium. So I’m just going to figure out what to do next. I’m somehow going to figure out how to get over there. Will that be okay?"

Although stranded, the singer kept her cool, continuing her candid explanation to the audience.

"So what happens now is basically like, I’m just chilling, waiting to figure out what happens next. I might just walk. Okay, so this is such a spoiler alert, but I have another flying thing across there that works apparently or wait, so there’s people talking in my ear. This is all so boring for you, I'm so sorry. And there’s no way for me to just talk to them so this is all just going to play out in front of you. Is there a way for me to walk or does it have to be flying?…Nobody’s saying anything."

While she waited for stage hands to fix the malfunction, the superstar sang a capella versions of her songs "Our Song" and "Wildest Dreams", much to the crowd's delight.

Just like every other setback she deals with, Taylor handled this potentially scary stage malfunction like a pro.
