Madonna: Working out saved me from injuries after fall

NEW YORK (AP) — Exercising regularly has been like a prayer answered for Madonna: The singer says thanks to staying active, she didn’t suffer much after falling during her performance at the Brit Awards.

In an interview Thursday night, the singer said with a laugh: “If wasn’t in good shape — tuck and roll.”

The 56-year-old tumbled last week after her dancers tugged at her flowing cape, dragging her down three steps. She got up after being yanked and continued her performance of “Living for Love.”

Madonna says the cape had been tied too tightly at the neck. After the performance, she says she suffered whiplash.

Her album “Rebel Heart” is out next week.
