Madonna speaks out after her #CapeGate tumble at the BRITs!
Poor Madonna was left seriously morto last night after she tumbled to the ground during a performance of her new song Living for Love at the BRIT Awards.
If you haven't already seen it… enjoy:
Although it originally looked as if the poor singer had fallen foul of a wind machine that blew her down a flight of stairs to the ground, the singer has said it was actually a wardrobe malfunction that was to blame, as one of her dancers tried to pull off her cape which was simply tied too tight.
Many in the audience initially thought the fall was part of Madge's dance routine, as she collapsed on the ground during the line, "I let down my guard, I fell into your arms" and was back on her feet to sing "now that it's over, I'm going to carry on". Trust Madonna to make a VERY undignified fall look like it was planned!
The 56-year-old took to her Instagram page shortly after the performance to reassure fans that she was doing fine and that her too-tight cape had been the problem.
"Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight!" she wrote alongside a designer's sketch of her costume. "But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I'm fine!"
Within minutes of the fall, Twitter was awash with some brilliant responses that definitely had us giggling:
Dear Madonna. This is how to wear a cape without falling over. Regards, The Queen. #MadgeDown pic.twitter.com/zkp41CtwuQ

Relax, guys. Madonna is okay. She just tripped over her ego and lightly sprained a chakra.

We hope poor Madge has some Arnica on hand for her bruises this morning!
