Such was the case when Madonna hit the stage at the Brit Awards Wednesday and fell very hard during her performance of "Living for Love" from her new Rebel Heart album.
This wasn't the fault of the singer alone, though. In a clip from the show, it looks like a dancer was trying to take off her cape and accidentally pulled her backwards down a flight of stairs (eek). The fall was so hard that she dropped her mic and missed a few lines of the song, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Ironically, here a few of the lyrics from "Living for Love": "Took me to heaven and let me fall down/ Now that it's over/ I'm gonna carry on/ Lifted me up and watched me stumble/After the heartache, I'm gonna carry on." And she did.
In spite of that crazy fall (which looked like it hurt), Madonna was able to get back up quickly and continue on with the show, although the mag reported she looked visibly upset when she did.
Following the performance, she even joked about it, posting a drawing of herself in the cape 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! #livingforlove."
That Madonna...always a pro.
