While performing onstage, the singer’s dramatic black cape malfunctioned when her devilishly dressed dancers tried to pull it off but ended up yanking the “Material Girl” with it instead.
Madonna’s huge cape appeared to get snagged by one of her dancers, pulling the 56-year-old backwards and causing her to tumble down a mini flight of stairs.
After falling flat on her famous backside, the star laid on the stage for a moment before getting back up to brush herself off. She then continued to perform like the pro that she is.
the singer shared an illustration of her Armani cape on Instagram. She captioned the photo with an explanation of how the mishap occurred.
“My beautiful cape was tied too tight,” the artist wrote. “But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine!”
Social media was immediately flooded with praise for how Madonna handled the tumble.
