Tonight’s ‘Brit Awards 2015’ saw Queen of Pop Madonna took a royal tumble on stage as she opened the performance of her latest chart-topper ‘Living For Love.’ Violently yanked to the ground by an apparently enthusiastic dancer, the songstress – in true diva fashion – was able to get through the rest of the performance without a hitch.
For what little bruising her joints may have suffered, we can’t say for sure her ego can boast the same. As social media is still ablaze after the incident – mostly lending cheers of support, the icon took to Twitter to weigh in herself.
This, just shortly after news that the stage rolling singer is the face of March’s ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine.
See it all below:
“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”

Look for the ‘Rolling Stone’ issue on stands and in the iTunes App Store this Friday, February 27th.
Rashad’s 2 cents: As the resident Madonna stan, I have to say how proud I am for her to have gotten up, dusted herself off, and finished the showing – and not pointing the finger (when she easily could have) for why she took the tumble. At 56, as she is determined to prove that she is just as capable as her younger counterparts, this incident could very well work to her benefit in the long run.
A master manipulator of the press, this effort is the most attention the song has received since its debut. As we wait to see what the ultimate outcome is (with hopes that she milks this opportunity for what it’s worth), I applaud her efforts. For, it’s not the first time she’s fallen on stage and won’t be at last. But, thankfully, unlike many of her younger counterparts, the vocal track didn’t keep moving when she stopped moving. Go Madge!
