Lopez Laughs Off Stage Stumble

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

JENNIFER LOPEZ has laughed off her embarrassing onstage stumble at the American Music Awards, joking it was part of her choreographed routine.

The star made her performance comeback on Sunday night (22Nov09), singing Louboutins from her new album Love?, but slipped up during a misstep at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

After strutting onto a stage converted into a boxing ring in a robe and gloves, Lopez gyrated with male dancers.

But it all went wrong for the star after she climbed onto a human pyramid of half-naked performers and jumped down - slipping backwards onto her bottom and flashing a glimpse of her underwear.

Ever the true pro, Lopez swiftly leaped to her feet and carried on her performance - and she had already forgotten about the blunder when she was asked about it during a radio interview on Monday morning (23Nov09).

She said, “Did I trip a little bit…? I don’t even remember.” She then joked, “I meant to do that… It was part of the choreography.”

And she chuckled as she called on her critics to remember how well she recovered from the mishap: “The measure of things is not what happens when you fall, it’s how you handle it when you fall.”
