We have Madonna to thank for one of the most epic awards show bloopers in recent memory. During her performance at the Brit Awards yesterday, the singer, clad in a supremely long Armani cape, fell backwards down a flight of stairs. It was certainly one of the most buzzed-about moments of the entire show, so of course, Madge had to come out to explain the details behind her tumble.
The singer took to Instagram to let her fans know what went wrong during the performance. “My beautiful cape was tied too tight,” she wrote. “But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up!”
Madonna’s in good company, though. Beyoncé and Lady Gaga have each tumbled publicly. Heck, even Jennifer Lawrence took a spill when she made her way to the stage to accept her Oscar in 2013. So it seems like falling is just part of being a boss chick.
