15 Celebrities Who Tripped and Fell Down Like Madonna. That’s Gotta Hurt!
What do Iggy Azalea, Beyonce, and Madonna have in common? They all fell down on stage! Ehow recommends that anyone who has a serious fall report to the doctor’s office or hospital. Never feel ashamed to ask for help when you fall. This is the defining moment in history when people come together to be shocked and amazed that stars who appear to be invincible actually have flaws. Their flaws are that they are prone to scary falls just like the rest of us. Beware the banana peel left haphazardly on the floor or the puddle left by a non-incontinent dog. What befell these fallen stars could very well happen to you.
Yo, these celebrities have no chill. Are they falling on purpose for attention? Some people think that Madonna may have. She was singing her song “Living for Love” when she fell backwards. She then got up and continued the performance. She blamed her Armani cape for being tied too tight. A radio host named Chris Evans had other opinions. “I’m not sure I think she did it on purpose but I wouldn’t put it past her. She’s a genius, this lady is a genius. She’s 112 and she’s still the most popular female artist in the world.”
Iggy Azalea fancied herself into a fall as she performed “Fancy” at the MTV Video Music Awards benefit concert at The Avalon in Los Angeles. “Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed,” she said on Instagram. Apparently, she even addressed the incident to tell the crowd that she was very blessed to not have broken her legs. Who dat! Who dat!
She may be the only girl in the world with her umbrella, but Rihanna was the tripping girl as she tripped and fell at the Rexall Place in Alberta for a 2011 concert. She was performing “What’s My Name?” and she caught herself on her hands and knees. Rihanna was photographed with Leonardo DiCaprio for the first time recently at the 27th birthday party for the Barbadian singer. No falls were reported from this event!
Harry Styles allegedly faceplanted on stage during a One Direction concert for their On the Road Again tour in Australia. Not Harry! Anyone but the breadwinner! I’m sure there were girls who wished it was another lesser member because Harry is the one to watch. Styles made the news recently because he is building an art gallery at his home in North London. It’s like art pop! This must be the influence of Lady Gaga.
She’s living a teenage dream after those dancing sharks, but Katy Perry was living a falling down dream at MTV’s 2008 Latin America Awards in Mexico. She jumped into a giant cake with four layers before she slipped on the icing and fell on her bum. She’s taking a cue from her song “Birthday” with the cake allusion. “I know you like it sweet so you can have your cake,” she said.
Lil Wayne was on stage and must have thought it was a slip ‘n slide because he ran dangerously fast and couldn’t stop himself. He landed on his back but recovered soon after. Last week, cops went to his Miami beach home after reports of someone who was suspicious lurking around. Maybe they wanted to see if he was ok after that famous fall or maybe he wanted to see if Wayne would fall again!
Beyonce runs the world but she did not run the steps on her Mrs. Carter world tour. Everybody got to see greatness trip on the stage when she fell down but she got back up like a professional and kept on going. Beyonce just won the 2015 Youtube Music Award along with 49 other winners. It looks like Youtube appreciates the efforts to fall and get back up in front of a million fans.
You can’t read her poker face but you can watch her fall on stage because a lot of people were editing videos of Lady Gaga’s falls. One video took place in Houston when Gaga slipped off a piano she was standing on. “It was in the middle of the show. She was really high up and it looked really bad. I only just managed to keep the video steady. The crowd all saw it and I don’t think anyone would have minded if she’d walked off the stage to get checked out by medics,” said Eric Souknary, videographer.
She’s not bitter. She’s not mad. Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child just took on a very serious tone when she discussed her famous fall on “106 & Park.” Kelly Rowland didn’t even help her up. “This is the first and last time I will discuss this. That was 10 years ago, I’m over it. Really great things have happened since then for me, but because of Youtube and stuff like that, it lives on forever. So I thank you for making me relevant every single day,” said Williams.
Jennifer Lopez fell flat at the American Music Awards in 2009 but was she flat while singing? Were her notes flat or sharp? Musical notes can be flat when they sound like a pitch lower than they should. She was performing a soung called “Louboutins” when she jumped off the back of a male dancer and slipped but if it wasn’t filmed, people probably wouldn’t have noticed. Her booty is fine now since she made a song with Iggy called “Booty.”
Pink was in a seriously dangerous situation when she fell onto a steel barricade at a performance in Germany. She made it out of the hospital alive and tweeted to her fans. “To all my Nurnberg fans, I am so so so sorry to end the show that way. I am embarrassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will be fine. Didn’t get clipped into the harness correct,ly, drug me off stage, fell into barricade,” said the singer.
Winner of the biggest smile goes to Mariah Carey for her poise and good spirit before, during, and after she fell at a Singapore concert. She rushed to the front of the stage and fell down before being helped back up by two dancers. Then a diva moment truly happened when Carey stopped the song to wave over her assistant to remove her stilettos. The assistant wrongly assumed Mariah wanted a bottle of water and brought it to her!
You have to please the big box retailers and Taylor Swift tried to impress them at a private concert in Minnesota. But then she fell and it didn’t matter anyway since she’s one of the hottest acts in music. Just don’t ask Noel Gallagher about her songwriting skills because he is not a Swifty apparently. She also fell down the stairs recently at the New Year’s Eve performance in New York. Welcome to New York.
Norway sounds like a nice place. It doesn’t have a negative tone attached to it like Ukraine or North Korea. Kanye even had his own foreshadowing because, right before he fell, he told the crowd, “If I fall, someone will film it and it will be all over Youtube.” Somebody commented on Gawker to say: “Gravity was like, ‘I’mma let you finish, but…'” At least it was more proof that he didn’t lip-synch!
She was walking up those many steps to get her Oscar for best actress in 2013 when she tripped and fell. “What went through my mind when I fell down? A bad word that I can’t say,” said Lawrence in an EW article. It made people love her even more than Katniss Everdeen. Katniss falls down sometimes too! Lawrence is set to star in a Steven Spielberg movie about a photographer.
