Author JK Rowling has expressed her solidarity for Madonna, describing her  "magnificent recovery" at the 2015 Brit Awards.

By now, everyone has seen the footage of Madonna falling over onstage during her performance of 'Living For Love' at the Brit Awards earlier this week. Now, JK Rowling, author of Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy, has taken to twitter to defend the performer against mockery.

Watch Madonna fall on stage at the Brit Awards 2015

Early this morning, however, JK Rowling tweeted her thoughts on the matter (note: she originally used the hashtag #campmadonna): 

The rather painful looking fall was the big story of Wednesday's BRIT Awards, continuing the trend of mistakes dominating the press around the ceremony. Madonna has clearly been taking the mishap in her stride however, first posting on Instagram that she was okay and now speaking to Jonathan Ross about the incident, with quotes first previewed in The Sun.

"I didn't hurt my butt but I hurt my head" the singer explained. "I had a little bit of whiplash, I smacked the back of my head. I had a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3am to make sure I was compos mentis."

She added: "I was told to tie my cape and start much further back and I had to walk further and everyone was worried my cape was going to slide off so they tied it really tight. So here I am marching in like the queen, I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled the slinky string and it wouldn't come undone." 

She went on to put fears she would fire her dancers to rest: "My two lovely Japanese dancers, they basically strangled me off the stage. I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall." 

Lastly she swore off capes: "No more capes, cape fear is over."
