OK, OK, call us a little mean, but sometimes we can’t help but giggle when we see someone fall down and go boom. It’s funny like a good fart joke.
Of course, we don’t like to see anyone get hurt, but that’s what’s so great about these clips: No one does. We get to see celebs make big dorks of themselves and then come out with nothing injured — except maybe their pride.
1. The Edge
It’s a lovely day to take a little stroll off the stage, isn’t it? Apparently the U2 musician thought so! Even more hilarious than the tumble were some of the Twitter reactions.
The Edge didn't fall off stage, he was just 'downloaded onto the audience without their permission'.

Copywriters have been waiting over 30 years for The Edge to fall off an edge.

2. Katy Perry
Just when she thought she was out, the frosting pulls her back in.
We’re not even mad, Drake, we’re impressed. What makes this fall so funny is the epic comeback. “I ain’t seen that shit!” he exclaims after taking his tumble-turned-back-somersault at about the 1:30 mark.
4. Jennifer Lopez
Ouch! JLo kept a sense of humor about the situation, though. She even spoofed it on an episode of Ellen shortly after her spill, which comes at 3:05 of her American Music Awards performance in 2009.
5–6. Carmen Electra and Alison Sweeney
What’s funnier than a pretty lady falling down in formal wear? Two pretty ladies falling down in formal wear!
7. Robbie Williams
“That will teach me for being cocky,” Williams says as he remains reclined on the ground. Will it though, Robbie? Will it?
Speaking of being cocky, Bono pretty much wrote the book on that, which makes this clip funny and satisfying. Win-win.
9. Lil Wayne
Whoopsie-daisy! That almost looked kind of fun. Like a Slip’N Slide.
10–12. Luke Bryan, Luke Bryan and more Luke Bryan
13. Mariah Carey
Just call her Grace! Mariah looked like she should have been clutching some pearls and landing on a fainting couch.
14. Miley Cyrus
You can’t fight gravity, Miley. Especially when your big fake butt is weighing you down.
