It's the moment everyone's talking about... what REALLY happened?
Silly question. There’s probably only one bloke left in Outer Mongolia who hasn’t had a cheeky guffaw at YouTube this morning. And he will after he’s had a cuppa.
But just in case you somehow missed the most UH-mazingly hilarious moment of 2015 so far (well, probably), here’s what happened…
So Madonna – who’d donned a very dramatic black cape – was belting out her new single Living For Love when she took a tumble backwards off the stage. OUCH.
But good ol’ Madge didn’t let the painful-looking plunge stop
her. Plenty of fans praised the 56-year-old for getting straight back up
and continuing with her performance.
The internet has since been flooded with Madonna-related memes (obvs). But She’s brushed the incident off by explaining that it was simply down to her Batman-style attire.
‘Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight!’ she wrote on Instagram.
‘But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine! ❤️#livingforlove.’
Now Chris Evans has speculated that maybe, just maybe it wasn’t such an accident after all.
Talking on his Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning, Chris told listeners: ‘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.
‘…I’ve been to those rehearsals at the BRITs. I did four years of it. It’s two days, straight rehearsals, 24 hours a day, because there’s so much going on.
‘Some bands get midnight calls, some bands get 4am calls. You are rehearsed and rehearsed and rehearsed and nobody rehearses more than her.
‘And I’m sure, I’m sure that I saw her tightening the cape just moments before. We’ve got a text here saying: “Isn’t it mysterious that she just fell exactly where her dancers were?”
‘And then she had her back to the audience when she was yanked, like some kind of David Copperfield. Some kind of huge, big, big thing, a big magical conjuring thing going on. Some kind of illusion.’
Chris added: ‘All part of the act, all written. And the reason she made all those bad movies, she was pretty wooden in all those movies for all those years, was all a part of this.
‘She knew that she was going to do this one day and she knew that it may be be suggested she was acting. But of course, people say: “Well, she can’t act. we’ve seen her movies.” And it’s all part of the whole conceit.’
Eek. What do you reckon?!
