Rihanna Is A “Woman Down” Taking An On-Stage Tumble

No, that wasn’t Rihanna being cute when she hit the floor just before singing her “What’s My Name” lyric: “I really wanna see if you can go downtown with a girl like me.” We’re pretty sure the spill was accidental. Still, July’s red-hot Cosmo cover girl kept her cool, got back to her feet, and kept right on performing, with only a slightly-embarrassed, humble shrug acknowledging her surrender to gravity. Maybe this Edmonton stop on her LOUD tour was especially exhausting, and she couldn’t wait to get into her California king bed? See Rihanna get up close and personal with the stage floor below.

The fashionably LOUD diva tweeted the following after the show: “Did I tell u guys I fell in Edmonton! Lol… #ManDown #rockstarshit.”

(At least she wasn’t singing “Man Down,” because that would’ve just been too perfect.)

It’s nice to see Rihanna taking her dust-biting in stride, and having a sense of humor about it. After all, it’s not like she’s the only girl in the world to ever take a tumble on stage, right?
