Iggy Azalea Takes Tumble Off L.A. StageBy: Kimberly Ripley - August 23, 2014
Iggy Azalea took a tumble off an L.A. stage, landing on the floor below. The ‘Fancy‘ singer was part of a group of singers doing an MTV VMA benefit show at The Avalon this week when she hit the floor–well below the stage–hard.
The Aussie was actually performing ‘Fancy,’ along with ‘Boom Clap’ singer Charlie XCX when the misstep occurred. The two ladies were dancing backwards and away from one another during their act when Iggy Azalea simply and certainly unknowingly ran out of stage to dance on–and plummeted to the floor instead.
She actually went down several feet, but managed to laugh about it enough to share the faux pas via Instragram.
“Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed. #StillFinishedtheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn,” she captioned the following video clip.
Iggy was helped back up on to the stage by a couple of nearby security guards. She was very relieved–even going so far as to say she felt “very blessed” that she didn’t break her legs.
Iggy Azalea was nominated for seven awards at the MTV Video Music Awards that air this Sunday, including Video of the Year, Best Female, Best Pop, Best Collaboration (with Ariana Grande), and Best Art Direction. It would be an absolute shock if she doesn’t walk away with at least one.
Will you be tuning in to the VMAs on Sunday to see if Iggy Azalea wins? Do you expect either her collaboration with Ariana Grande or her song ‘Fancy’ will yield her an award?
Hopefully Iggy will be very careful when she takes the stage to receive said expected award. She would likely never live down falling off the stage at the VMAs.
