Madonna just took a major fall during a performance and the internet is going nuts

Madonna was performing her latest single “Living For Love” at the star-studded Brit Awards on Wednesday when her cape tie didn’t release and a dancer accidentally pulled the 56-year-old diva down a flight of stairs.

It looked pretty painful, and social media captured the whole thing.

Let’s see that in GIF form, just for good measure:

Despite the sanfu, Madonna popped back up and continued dancing, finishing her performance like a total pro.

After the incident, Madonna put on a brave face and tried to explain what happened, assuring she was A-OK: “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,” she captioned an illustration of her costume.
