Even after a horrific tumble down the stairs at the Brit Awards this week, Madonna still knows how to keep the show going. She took to Instagram to tell everyone she was fine after the fall, but the singer recently revealed she was actually really hurt. During a taping of The Jonathan Ross Show in Britain, Madonna shared, "I didn't hurt my butt; I hurt my head. . . . I smacked the back of my head. So, there was a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3 a.m. making sure that I was still compos mentis."
She also mentioned that the incident not only physically bruised her but mentally threw off her performance as well. "It was a horrible nightmare," she said. "Seriously, I rehearse and I rehearse and I rehearse so that when I do the show it's effortless and I create magic, and I did the opposite. I actually created a horror show for everyone." As to why she fell, Madonna explained that her cape was tied too tightly, adding, "I had a choice: I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell."
