The Brit Awards, the U.K.'s equivalent to the U.S.' GRAMMYs, had a very interesting night with the debut of Kanye West's new song "All Day," but it was the fall that the Queen of Pop took that set social media ablaze. Madonna, who was performing her single "Living for Love" at the awards show, had a pretty nasty tumble onstage after a few of her dancers pulled her cape.

The cape was intended to detach from Madonnna, but instead, it sent her flying backwards off the platform she was standing on and onto the ground of the stage.

But don't worry! The Queen took to Instagram to announce that she's fine.


2. The Case Of The Missing Dress

It's a classic case of who stole the $150,000 dress from an Academy Award-winning actress. It's not so classic, but it is causing a lot of trouble as officials investigate a report that the dress worn by Lupita Nyong'o  at this year's Academy Awards was stolen from her West Hollywood hotel room.

The dress, valued at $150,000 and made of 6,000 white Akoya pearls, was reported missing by Nyong'o Wednesday night.

There's no word yet one where the dress disappeared to, but officials are currently collecting evidence and possible video surveillance, so hopefully it won't be too long before the culprit is caught.


3. A Choppy Oscars

The 87th Academy Awards happened, but apparently not many watched. This year's ceremony was watched by the lowest audience in six years; about 36.6 million viewers. It's not clear whether that's a good thing or not with Sunday night's festivities being at the center of a lot of social media buzz.

From a few missed jokes by host Neil Patrick Harris and off-color jokes about green cards from Sean Penn to a rousing and impactful speech on equal pay from Patricia Arquette and an amazing performance by Lady Gaga, the Academy Awards had its ups and downs this year.


4. Sia Revealed

Sia finally revealed her face. Of course, any random Google search could also procure you a glimpse of the "Chandelier" singer's face, but it's just not the same. Sia, 39, attended Elton John's AIDS Foundation Oscars viewing party, sans giant wig and rocking a smile.

That didn't last very long.

Sia went back to her usual get-up for the Vanity Fair Oscars after party. It may be a long time before that happens again people.


5. Tom Hanks Joins Corden
