Although some people might have found quite funny the moment when Madonna fall onstage at the Brit Awards, in reality the star hurt her head.

So, the incident was much more serious than what everyone imagined at first. Immediately after the on stage incident, Madonna wanted to ensure all her fans that she was fine. Now, in a new interview, the singer revealed that she was in severe pain following the fall. “I didn’t hurt by butt, I hurt my head,” Madonna said.
“I had a little bit of a whiplash and 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 I was still conscious,” she continued to explain. “I know how to fall. I’ve fallen off my horse many times, and I tucked, and I have good core strength,” Madonna went on an explained.
The incident occurred while Madonna was performing her single Living for Live. The star’s moment supposed her cape to come off and be thrown away by her dancers. However, the cape wouldn’t come off and the star was thrown off the stage. “Everybody was worried that my cape was going to slide off because it’s quite heavy, so they tied it really tight around my neck,” she added. “So here I am marching in like a queen, and I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled my silky string, and it would not come undone. And my two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice: I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell,” Madonna explained. Despite the incident, Madonna handled the entire moment like a pro and continued her performance as if nothing had happened.
The singer also claimed that the whole incident was horrible for her, as she likes to be great on the stage. “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,” Madonna previously said.
