Burning Man, an art festival in the Nevada desert, is winding down but singer Katy Perry is enjoying her first trip there right now. She seems to be there just for fun, not to perform. Last August she tweeted that she regretted not attending the event: “Wish I was at burning man getting all counter cultured out right now.”
On Sunday Perry posted a video on Instagram of her on a segway-looking contraption, riding around in circles in the middle of a dust storm. The dust storm is so bad she and the fellow burners in the clip have scarves up covering their faces.
Burning Man began on August 30 and ends on September 7. Perry isn’t the only celebrity and big-name to attend the festival. Billionaires Elon Musk and Sergey Brin famously love it, as well as Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz. Mark Zuckerberg even helicoptered in once to see what Burning Man was all about.
Here’s Perry’s video. “Obvious first time burner alert,” she posted.
