Madonna took a nasty fall Wednesday while performing her new single "Living For Love" at the 2015 Brit Awards in London’s O2 Arena. During the song, a dancer yanked on Madonna’s extra-long cape, causing the 56-year-old singer to tumble backwards down a flight of steps. Fortunately, despite the ugly spill, Madonna is okay. Check out the shocking video below.
Here is what happened: Madonna was supposed to untie the cape before the backup dancer tugged on it, but she didn’t unfasten it quickly enough. So when the dancer gently pulled on the cape, Madonna was yanked backwards down the stairs and crashed onto the ground. You can even hear the impact! For a few seconds, the arena went silent before Madonna hopped back up and continued singing the song.
Ironically, “Living For Love” contains the lyrics, “Took me to Heaven and let me fall down, now that it’s over I’m gonna carry on,” as well as “Lifted me up, and watched me stumble.” Shortly after Madonna’s performance, she wrote on Instagram, “Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine!” Check out the scary video of Madonna’s fall below, and tell us what you think.
