Perhaps it's time to rethink the repeated use of potentially hazardous accessories

Nearly a year to the day that Madonna stole the Brits after *that* cape fall, the Queen of Pop appears to have done it again during a Thailand gig.

The US singer was performing her Eighties hit “Material Girl” on stage at Bangkok’s Impact Arena when a long wedding veil she was wearing became caught, making for a highly awkward moment with two backing dancers.

Fortunately, there was no dramatic backwards fall down any steps, but it certainly made Madonna look far less professional than the rest of her Rebel Heart tour has proved. Naturally, however, she laughed off the tangle and continued to whoops from the crowd.

The 57-year-old is widely praised for her energetic live shows, but perhaps hazardous costumes should be banned before she seriously injures both her body and her ego. 

Madonna admitted crying “from humiliation” after her disastrous Brits fall during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. “Nothing hurt on me,” she said. “That’s just the weirdest thing. I’m hard on myself. I don’t want to see any part of the performance…”

Madonna is not the only one to risk life and limb during concerts. Beyonce narrowly saved herself from taking an embarrassing tumble during the Super Bowl Half-Time Show last Sunday. The “Formation” singer disguised the mishap as a dance move, as only she could.
