Washington: Pop singer Rihanna took an embarrassing tumble on stage last week in Canada while she was performing as part of her ‘Loud’ world tour.

The ‘California King Bed’ singer tripped over her shoes and fell on her face on Wednesday during a rendition of hit single ‘What’s My Name’ in Edmonton, reports a website.

Despite her trip in front of 16,000 fans, the 23-year-old singer managed to regain her composure and carried on with the show.

Rihanna is not the first star to have taken a tumble on stage recently.

In April, Lady Gaga fell from a flaming piano during a concert in Houston.

And earlier this month, British singer Jessie J had to be rushed to hospital after falling off an onstage platform during rehearsals for a gig, tearing a ligament.
