We knew Madonna was tough, but damn. The pop goddess fell backwards down the stairs during a live
performance at the U.K.'s Brit Awards, and it looks like the sort of thing that
would have knocked the wind out of any mere mortal. Not Madonna! After a few
beats, Madge grabbed her mic, got to her feet, and finished performing "Living
for Love," off of Rebel Heart.
It looks like one of her sexy Minotaur dancers was supposed
to remove Madonna's fancy bullfighter cape with a flourish, but when he gave
it a tug, Madonna came tumbling down with it. Of course, Madonna's not the only
person to take a spill during a spectacular musical performance. Jennifer Lopez
famously fell on her tuchus at the 2010 AMAs. Heck, even Katy Perry, Taylor
Swift, and Queen Bey aren't immune to the whims of gravity. Frankly, with all
the dancing and flying and whatnot happening in these shows, it's a miracle
anyone is able to stay upright.
Madonna has already
posted an Instagram update with a picture of the amazing Armani cape she was
wearing, assuring fans she's okay and that her cape was just a little too tight.

a sexy Minotaur is getting a possible spanking. [Billboard]
