BRIT Awards 2015: Madonna Admits ‘Nightmare’ Fall Gave Her Whiplash

After reassuring fans that she’s all a-okay, Madonna has appeared on the Jonathan Ross show to talk all things BRIT Awards fall and explain what happened from her point of view.

We may have gotten a brilliant Tumblr parody account out of #capegate, but for poor Madonna, the only thing she got was whiplash and a whole new nightmare.

And not one dressed like a daydream, sadly.

If you STILL haven’t seen the moment Madge made us laugh, gasp and rewind our TV at least five times, you really should.

The 56-year-old has already explained that she fell because her cape was tied too tight, but now she’s gone into even more detail about THAT night.

She said: “I’m a creature of habit I rehearse everything, everything, everything.

“I was thrown a wrench at the beginning of the performance. I was told to tie my cape and start much further back and I had to walk further and everyone was worried my cape was slide off so they tied it really tight around my neck.

“So here I am marching in like the queen, I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled the silky string and it wouldn’t come undone.

“My two lovely Japanese dancers they basically strangled me off the stage. I had two choices, I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall.”

Awkward.

When Jonathan tried to show her a clip of the epic fall, Madonna said she didn’t want to watch, continuing: “It was a nightmare, I like to be amazing, I rehearse and rehearse so when I do a show it is effortless and I create magic. I did the opposite, I actually created a horror show for everyone.”

She added: “I’m never writing lyrics like that again. The universe was trying to teach me a lesson.

“I didn’t hurt my butt but I hurt my head. I know how to fall, I have fallen off my horse many times.

“I had little bit of whiplash, I smacked the back of my head. And I had a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3am to make  sure I was compos mentis.

“I am always nervous of live TV, when you singing you can’t make any mistakes, the worst thing is you fall down stairs.

“I like to make my shows dangerous but then there is danger.”

Madge also denied the whole thing was a stunt to increase ticket and album sales.

And as for the future of capes in her life? “No more capes, cape fear is over.”

PHEW.

Never work with capes, folks.
