Unlike most musicians' in-concert breakdowns, Allen's wasn't a tantrum over sound quality or unruly fans but over an injury. As the Daily Mail reports, Allen was on painkillers after hurting her back, telling the crowd, "I feel a bit emotional tonight and if I cry it's not because of you but because of me."
She revealed the injury before the show on her Twitter page, writing "Fell over badly last night and I've really f---ed my back up. Just had an injection in my bum. How am I gonna get through tonight's gig?" A little later, she added, "This injection has made me well woooozy."
We have to give her credit, though. Not only did she brave the pain, she managed to wipe away the tears without making a dent in her thick glittery eyeliner. Unfortunately for Allen, it appears that bad things do, in fact, come in threes; she later revealed on Twitter that she lost her handbag Saturday night. Talk about a rough weekend.
