Madonna agreed to perform at the BRITs this year, ending a two decade wait at the ceremony for a set by the Queen Of Pop.
Taking charge of the show's finale, the spectacular performance went down in history for all the wrong reasons.
Attempting to undo a cape, a dance move resulted in Madonna falling down steep steps. Carrying on like a true professional, Madonna has now revealed that she suffered whiplash as a result of the incident.
Speaking to Jonathan Ross, the singer said: "I had a 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."
Continuing, Madonna blamed her cape for the incident. "Everyone was worried my cape would slide off, so they tied it really tight around my neck," explained the singer. "I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled the silky string, and it wouldn't come undone. I had two choices: I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall."
Finishing, the singer revealed that the cape has been quietly retired: "No more capes. Cape fear is over."
