Perhaps one of the most interesting celebrity slip and fall accidents occurred on the red carpet at the 2015 Time 100 gala. Seemingly normal entrances were made by most of those attending until Amy Schumer took a dive to the carpet. What’s even more interesting is the look on the faces of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who happened to be behind her. Schumer is a comedian and actress and likely planned the nosedive into the carpet to gain some attention, but it still is a memorable moment.
Madonna is known for her over the top performances but even the skilled and experienced performer can topple a bit while on stage. That’s exactly what she did at the Brit Awards. There, she fell on stage while performing. The footage was everywhere, much to her dismay. Nevertheless, the Queen of Pop found herself back up on the stage in no time belting out her famous tunes. The performer also says that she cannot look back at what happened and wonders how she wasn’t hurt.
The Oscars are the big event for celebrities and there is no better place to shine. At the 2013 event, Jennifer Lawrence, the actress many adore, had a run in with the steps. A set of steps, lighted and wide, paved the way to the stage from the audience. Unfortunately for Lawrence, she tripped on those stairs, perhaps due to the large, billowing gown she was wearing, and hit the ground. She was cautious and made it to the podium and tried to make a joke.
Of course people have a few drinks to say goodbye to the old year and to welcome in the new year. There’s no indication that this was what happened to Taylor Swift at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015, but she did fall down the steps there. As she was walking down the stairs from the stage, she seemed to lose her balance and slipped. She wasn’t hurt, thankfully, but she did make it to her place in time so that she could usher in the ball dropping a few minutes later on stage with Ryan Seacrest. She seemed to be smiling and happy, too!
There’s nothing more expected at the Pre-VMA Show than a lot of dancing and jumping around. During the 2014 performance, Iggy Azalea, a very popular singer and performer, didn’t have such a great experience on the stage. While she was performing her big hit “Fancy”, she happened to fall seeming to have run out of stage in process of performing. Luck for her, her security guards were right there to pull her back up on stage – she actually fell towards the crazy crowd. She wasn’t hurt and said she felt as though she was blessed that she did not break her legs in the process. She even shrugged it off later when asked about it. She posted the video of herself taking the nose dive on Instagram herself. It’s good to know she can laugh at herself!
