The Queen of Pop has let her fans know that she hasn't sustained any major injuries after falling off stage at the Brit Awards.

Madonna suffered what looked like an incredibly painful fall down a flight of steps while performing song Living For Love at the awards ceremony on Wednesday night. She told fans on her Instagram page that she fell because her Armani cloak had been tied too tight around her neck. A problem that everybody can relate to.


"Armani hooked me up!" she wrote. "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"

However, the singer and dancer kept going and carried out the rest of her energetic routine.

Before the fall Madonna, 56, was also victim of an ageist joke from comedian Jimmy Carr, 42, who said that the only drugs backstage in Madonna's dressing room were HRT.

After proving yet again how resilient and strong she is, it's unlikely Carr would have dared make the same joke to Madonna's face.
