There was a scary scene during tonight’s BRIT Awards, as Madonna took a serious spill while performing on-stage. In what appeared to be a wardrobe malfunction, the pop star’s cape failed to unclasp, yanking her backwards off a flight of stairs. Madonna spent several seconds on the ground and appeared visibly shaken, but she was able to finish her performance.
Update: Madonna has commented on the accident via Instagram. Turns out the Armani-designed cape was indeed “tied too tight” and failed to come off as intended. “I’m fine!” Madge assured her fans in the post, which you can see below.
