The VMAs almost lost one of its biggest performers to an unplanned stage dive on August 22. But luckily, Iggy Azalea’s just fancy enough that she can fall off stage and get right back up, without missing a beat.
The breakout pop star of 2014 — and host of MTV’s “House of Style” — was rapping her signature song, “Fancy,” at Time Warner Cable and Lifebeat’s MTV Music Video Awards concert at the Avalon, when she took a bad step and fell right off the proscenium.
The video is scary to watch, but don’t worry: Iggy’s not just OK, she’s laughing about it.
Her message to fans reads, “Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed. #StillFinishedtheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn.”
All right, Iggy. If you’re laughing, we’re laughing. Just be careful! The VMAs are one day away, and we can’t afford to lose you.
