Madonna took a few days off to ski with her family in the Swiss Alps and the trip turned out to be very funny. At least for those who have had the chance to see the pop queen face plant on the ski run. The photo of the 54-year-old singer went viral in just a few hours after it was posted on the Internet, according to Daily Mail.
Madonna took her 25-year-old boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat and her daughters, Lourdes, 16, and Mercy, 6, to a weekend holiday at the Swiss Alps. Trying to prove that she can still keep step with her teens, the singer attempted several outstanding ski moves, but ended up face planting on the bunny slope. The moment was immediately captured by by-passers and the picture was posted on numerous social networks, to the detriment of Lourdes, Mercy and Brahim, who will most likely have to cope with the embarrassment for many weeks to come.
Ski fails, like all fails, draw millions of viewers on the Internet, which explains why Madonna’s picture went viral as soon as it was posted on Twitter. This didn’t seem to bother the singer-turned-director since face planting in the Swiss Alps seems to be the only way for her to get the public’s attention lately.
The small accident did not interrupt Madonna’s holiday; on the contrary, she continued to practice her skiing skills throughout the rest of the day without experiencing other unpleasant incidents. Her youngest daughter, Mercy, chose to get professional lessons from a ski instructor, whereas Lourdes and Brahim had a great time snowboarding on the Gstaad, Switzerland slopes.
Madonna was not accompanied by her other two children, 12-year-old Rocco and 7-year-old David. The two boys prefer to spend great part of their time in company of their father, Guy Ritchie, Madonna’s ex-husband. The singer will continue her winter holidays for several more days as she needs to relax after her “MDNA” world tour.
