Iggy Azalea falls off stage during pre-VMA show

Iggy Azalea Tumbles Off Stage During Performance


LOS ANGELES (AP) - Iggy Azalea tumbled off the stage during an MTV Video Music Awards benefit concert, but she appeared unharmed and posted a video of the fall on social media.

The Australian rapper fell Friday night while performing her hit "Fancy" at The Avalon in Los Angeles. Security guards quickly pulled Azalea back onto the stage, and she barely missed a beat as Charli XCX joined her for the chart-topping single.

Afterward, Azalea told the crowd she felt "very blessed" that she did not break her legs. There was no immediate word if she was injured.

Azalea appeared in good spirits, posting a video of the fall on Instagram. She wrote in the caption: "I know I laughed."

Neither Azalea's representatives nor MTV immediately responded to emails seeking comment.

Tori Kelly and Sam Smith also performed at the event benefiting Lifebeat - Music Fights HIV/AIDS.

Azalea is up for seven awards at the VMAs airing live Sunday.

Truckers are familiar with accidents like this, when a load shifts.

She put on a good show; goes to show we are all human. Of all the James Brown performances in NYC that I was there, James Brown never miss a step or disappoint his audiences. I say I saw about 15 of his live performance since 1964 at the Apollo and at the old and new and old Madison Square Garden
through 1996 in Central park and at the B.B. King 42nd St. James Brown never fell on stage. But you can be sure you would hear and feel everything including his knees hit that stage floor. You got your money's worth.

We are all human but I don't get on stage. They need to be X-large guardrails for her.

VMA, Vanyllic Mandelic Acid, is a byproduct of a pheochromocytoma, which is part of a larger set of conditions called multiple endocrine neoplasms (Werner syndrome II), I saw nothing in the video which would alert me to this condition. Patients who suffer with pheo's sometimes have a brief loss of consciousness. However its usually part of a micturition syncope. In the video I didn't see her urinating on stage and there was not an indication of loss of consciousness.

But, doctor, wouldn't you agree that the lack of urination on stage might simply be indicative of nothing more than a piss-poor performance?

I'm impressed, i knew that there were educated idiots i just never heard one that was so proud of it. You do know that VMA also means Video Music Awards or were you lost in your own head? I didn't see her piss on the stage! DUH!
