The US singer Pink has been taken to hospital in Germany after an onstage stunt with a vuvuzela went drastically wrong.
The star, holding the vuvuzela like a witches broom, fell out of a harness which was supposed to carry her over the crowd, and she was, instead, dragged into a barricade. The vuvuzela - a trumpet-like musical instrument - became trapped in her anus.
The concert in Nuremberg was halted as the 30-year-old was taken to hospital to be checked over.
Later, she wrote on Twitter: "Nothing's broken, no fluid in the lungs, just a seriously sore butt."
She also apologised to fans for having to make an early exit.
"To all my nurnberg fans - I am so so so sorry to end the show that way. I am embarrassed and very sorry. I'm in ambulance now but I will b fine," she wrote.
"Didn't get clipped in2 harness correctly, drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade, vuvuuzela up ass. Getting xrays. I hope it at least looked cool!!!"
Video footage, shot by an alert member of the audience, shows the incident, with Pink heard saying that it "really hurt".
Latest reports suggest that Pink is considering shoving a vuvuzela up her arse BEFORE going onstage in her next concert on the tour, in order to avoid costly ambulance and hospital charges.
