Sugababes star Keisha Buchanan tells TV Hits magazine she was doing a bit of pre-party shopping before realizing something was wrong. “Me and my friends went shopping and I bought one of those thongs that’s held together by a jewel,” Buchanan explained. “My friends told me not to get one because they always break but it was so nice I just had to buy it. I was walking to the party and all of a sudden I tripped over something. When I looked back it was my underwear! It had just snapped and fallen off. My friends dragged me into the toilet and tied a knot in it, but that broke too. I spent the whole night with my hands on my hips holding myself together.”
