Rihanna Takes Another Stage Tumble on Tour (watch!)

Rihanna is paying a price for wearing sky-high heels on stage. She stumbled and tripped again during a show in Edmonton, Canada. But ever the trouper, she kept right on singing as she picked herself up.

The 23-year-old singer was walking across the stage in stiletto boots and suddenly slammed down on her hands and knees in the middle of a song.

She paused for a moment, stood up on her knees and started singing again, without missing a word.

As she got up, she made a gesture to her back up dancers, suggesting an “Oh well,” and continued with the tune.

She was wearing extra-short shorts and a scarf top, but everything managed to stay in place.

She’s had similar mishaps at a concert in London, so by now she’s a pro at the stumble-and-recover move. Maybe she’ll work it into her act.

As female stars opt for more and more outlandish costumes on tour, especially shoes with five-inch heels and sometimes, three-inch platforms, the accidents are mounting up.

Lady Gaga is famous for taking on-stage tumbles because of her over-the-top footwear.

In any event, Rihanna has more to worry about on her Loud Tour.

Cee Lo Green, who had been opening for her, suddenly dropped out of the tour after drawing criticism for his performance.

His rep cited work overload for the decision.

“He always puts 100 percent into his work and with the requirements and time commitment to “The Voice,” on top of heading back into the recording studio and an upcoming book, he feels that he wouldn’t give his fans the show that they deserve,” the rep told The New York Times.
