WATCH: Teyana Taylor whips her wig like a prop after it flies off mid-performance
Taylor - who's she is currently on tour with Jeremih - is also playing the role of a stripper in Netflix's upcoming hip-hop comedy, 'The After Party.'
Imagine yourself in the middle of performing on stage, and you suffer a major wardrobe malfunction - like your wig flying off. But for Teyana Taylor, it's no big deal. The musician knows it's no reason to panic, as she kept the show going on even after her wig flew right off her head during her Saturday night concert at Washington DC's 9:30 club. Being her awesome self, she turned the wig into the coolest prop ever, right away, and continued with her performance while swinging the prop around.
And her fans - loyal as ever - cheered and applauded her throughout; the few seconds she bopped and owned the stage with the wig. Even after she returned with a baseball cap upon her head, to keep the wig intact, the fans' excitement knew no bounds. To the point where one of them handed Taylor their own wig, and she turned that into a prop as well.
Taking to Instagram, Taylor posted a clip of the said incident on Sunday and captioned it: "No wig formed against me shall prosper. Here’s a recap of the wig snatching in DC LAST NIGHT!!! Omg I love y’all!!!! WE ALL KEPT THAT SAMEEEEE ENERGY!!! Yesterday was tooo litttttttt!!!! The show must go on ALWAYS!!!!!"
And did she snatch - let it be known that all through his minor malfunction, Taylor managed to catch her wig right at the tip of her nape as it slid off, and then she even continued to perform with even more energy - without missing a single beat all this while.
But trust that one petty person in the comments who has to throw unnecessary, extra shade at a person who's just doing their own thing - and even then Tayor proved to be all-powerful as she shut them down for their extremely uncalled for comment that claimed she was embarrassing her entire family.

"How am I embarrassing my family?" Taylor replied, defending herself. "Because MY WIG flew off during MY SOLD OUT CONCERT?? The show must go on Petunia!! The WIG wasn't secured last night but the COIN was. Have a blessed day sis." And her fans seemed to agree wholeheartedly to that too.
Taylor, who is currently on tour with Jeremih, is also playing the role of a stripper in Netflix's upcoming hip-hop comedy - 'The After Party.' The show stars some pretty prominent rappers like Jadakiss, Desiigner, Tee Grizzley, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana and also Pusha T.
Even DJ Khaled blesses fans with a cameo appearance in the trailer, to lighten up the mood apparently - telling Jeff, “Boy, you gotta chill man” when the character jumps in excitement upon meeting the rapper.
