The mighty have fallen: when gravity got the best of our fave pop stars

Sometimes it seems like our faves are completely untouchable. Their perfect hair and beautiful smiles would have us believe that they are incapable of making any blunders at all.

But that’s just simply not true now, is it?


It’s going to happen some time or another. Gravity gets the best of all of us. But there is a classy way to do these things and these seven stars have mastered that art.

Here’s seven of the classiest falls in pop star history:

1. Selena Gomez 

OK so she did have a song called ‘Falling Down’ so that’s a bit of a giveaway, but this is just taking it a bit too far.

She had the cutest reaction ever though, laughing her head off and saying, “First fall of the whole damn tour”. Almost got away with it Selena.

2. Justin Bieber

This looks painful! Poor Biebs slipped and fell on stage back in July this year. Justin was playfully kicking water at his backing dancers when it came back to bite him in the butt.

Luckily he saw the funny side, retweeting his fall as making a pun (which we always appreciate) about his stumble.

But that wasn’t the only time he took a tumble in front of a crowd…

In fact, it’s become a bit of a thing.

3. Madonna

At the 2015 Brit Awards Madonna was getting ready for a massive comeback and this was to be the performance which announced her intentions to the world. Boy, did it do just that.

But, the professional that she is, Madonna got right back up and slayed the performance. This was a true masterclass in, well, class. You couldn’t help admire her composure.

4. Meghan Trainor 

One of the most dramatic spills came from relative newbie, M-Train.

But, again, she styled it out beautifully. You can’t just cover it up can you? So she just decided to lie there on the ground and have a chill. Sounds like a great idea tbh.

5. Iggy Iggs

Actually these pop stars are just made of steel. When Iggy literally fell head over heels while performing, she actually managed to keep on rapping the whole time. SLAYAGE!

6. Demi Lovato

Demi’s no stranger to floor time either, but she somehow managed to rock the sitting down look. What black magic does she possess in order to look awesome with a inevitably bruised bum?


7. J-Law

She may not be a pop star, but we just HAD TO include this one. It just makes her so endearing. Jennifer Lawrence, Queen of Falls. We bow and exalt.
