Madonna has revealed she suffered whiplash after her tumble on The BRIT Awards 2015 – she has since said “no more capes” in an interview.
Madonna took a very nasty fall backwards during her closing performance at The BRIT Awards 2015 this week and has since appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show, saying: “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.”
Jonathan then tried to play the incident on his show, but Madonna said: “I don’t want to see it, don’t make me watch.”
Madonna continued: “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.”
“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.”
Madonna ended her interview saying “No more capes, cape fear is over.”
The Jonathan Ross Show, Madonna Special airs 14th March on ITV.
