It turns out riding a Segway isn't one of Katy Perry's talents.

The Dark Horse singer has posted a video to her Instagram riding a Segway at the Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada.

In the clip, Perry - wearing a black bandana and goggles over her to keep out the gusting sand storm - spins on the Segway a couple of times before falling off.

The machine then takes off on its own and Perry has to chase it down.

Perry captioned the video: "Obvious first time burner alert."

Perry later posted another Instagram video of her Father, Keith Hudson, showing the pop star how to ride a Segway like a pro.

"Hey bird, you need lessons, so this is how you do it" Hudson says as he spins one-handed on the Segway.
