Katy Perry Totally Fails at Segway Riding But her dad makes up for it By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Sep 8, 2015 10:53 AM CDT 9 comments Comments Katy Perry needs Segway lessons from her dad. (Instagram) (Newser) – Katy Perry: good at singing, not so good at riding a Segway. Perry posted an Instagram video from Burning Man this weekend showing her (while clad in a puffy coat, tiny backpack, and vaguely creepy mask) attempting to spin on a Segway, only to watch it escape from her grasp and fall to the ground. More amusing: She yesterday posted a follow-up video of her dad successfully spinning on one (one-handed, to boot) while telling his daughter, "You need lessons. This is the way you do it."
