Selena Gomez Falls Off Stage During Recent Concert
Selena Gomez has been busy on the road over the past several months, promoting her first solo album, Stars Dance. Last week, she was performing her hit single, “Slow Down,” at the Patriot Center in Virginia when she moved a little too quickly and fell off of the stage. If you take a look at the video above, you can catch the spill around the 3:27 second mark.
What’s most impressive about the spill is that Gomez gets right back up and continues her dance routine. She gets some help from one of her backup dancers, who hops down and helps her back up onstage. While Gomez lets out a peep whenever the fall occurs, overall she doesn’t seem particularly flustered. The show must go on.
Most singers have had a stage mishap once or twice in the past. Marilyn Manson collapsed onstage last winter after continuing to tour while ill. We’ve seen all pop stars from Lady Gaga to Gomez’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber totally throw up on stage and keep dancing like champs. We’ve even seen other singers fall before, including Scotty McCreery. True professionals like Gomez get right back up and continue their routines.
Stars Dance and the subsequent Stars Dance Tour have taken Gomez’s singing career to a whole new level. Prior to this year, the singer and actress was mostly known for her work with Disney and dating Bieber for a couple of years. Now, she’s taking on more grownup acting roles in movies like Spring Breakers and crushing in the music realm with Stars Dance. The album hit the top of the Billboard 200 album sales when it first debuted and has sold well subsequently. If you want to nab your own copy, you can head over to iTunes, or just catch the video of Gomez falling on repeat.
