Pop sensation Madonna said that it was a 'horror show' after her performance at the BRIT awards went horribly awry in which she stumbled backwards during her gig.
The 56-year-old opened up about the incident while talking on The Jonathan Ross Show, which is set to air on March 14, reports
The singer had been performing her new single Living for love during the live finale at the music awards ceremony, when she failed to untie her costume cape in time and fell backwards.(Also Read: Ouch! Madonna Falls Off Stage at BRIT Awards)

During a filming on the show, she also said that it wasn't a set-up.
Shaking her head after the host asked what she thought of the stunt suggestions, due to the nature of the lyrics in the song which referenced a fall, she said, "I'm never writing lyrics like that again! The universe was trying to teach me a lesson I guess."
Madonna, who opted out of re-watching the clip of her performance during the interview said, "It was a horrible nightmare because I like to be amazing. Seriously I rehearse and I rehearse and I rehearse so that when I do the show, it's effortless and I create magic and I did the opposite. I actually created a horror show for everyone".
The annual awards ceremony was held in London on February 25.
