On February 28 2006, the maxi-single for Sorry, the second single from Confessions on a Dance Floor, was released.

Sorry was one of the first tracks developed for Confessions on a Dance Floor. The songs were developed with a remixed perspective in mind. Madonna commented:

“Whenever I make records, I often like the remixes better than the original ones. So I thought, screw that. I’m going to start from that perspective”.

On February 25 2015, Madonna was accidentally pulled down a flight of stairs on stage because her cape was tied too tight, during a performance of Living For Love at the Brits, but then gracefully recovered and carried on with the show.

She tweeted this shortly after the performance ended:

Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine! ‪#‎livingforlove‬” -Madonna

Bravo to Madonna for being such a relentless professional and giving her all!
