Taylor Swift broke a heel on one of her Christian Louboutin boots during an Eras Tour concert in Rio de Janeiro on Monday night, forcing her to walk like a Barbie. Swift can be seen is a clip introducing the song “Lover,” while clearly standing “on tiptoe, with a broken heel, like a real-life Barbie,” according to the caption. It’s not clear what happened, but one of the knee-high boots was completely missing its heel for several songs. Swift eventually peeled the entire bottom off during a break in the set and threw it into the audience. Monday’s concert in Rio was originally scheduled for Saturday but postponed due to extreme temperatures — and following the death of a 23-year-old fan before Friday’s show.
