(Newser) – A 56-year-old woman took a hard and very public fall down some stairs in London today, but she quickly got back to work. It happened to Madonna just as she began performing at the Brit Awards, reports Billboard. A backup dancer yanked her cape, and it was supposed to come loose, but instead it dragged Madonna down three stairs. She was back up to finish the song after a few moments. Afterward she posted to Instagram: "My beautiful cape was tied too tight!" and added, "I'm fine!" Let the memes begin: See BuzzFeed.
