While vacationing in the resort town of Gstaad, Switzerland, for New Year's, Madonna was caught taking several falls during her skiing attempt in the Swiss Alps.
The New York Daily News reports that the 54-year-old singer, dressed in all black, landed facedown as her 25-year-old boyfriend Brahim Zaibat looked on. Madonna's daughters, 16-year-old Lourdes and 6-year-old Mercy, also braved the slopes, perhaps with greater success. Lourdes was caught on camera effortlessly gliding on a snowboard, while Mercy received help from a private instructor.
Perhaps Lourdes can share some tips with Mom. The 16-year-old reportedly fared quite well on some of the more advanced trails, even if the "Vogue" singer couldn't hold her own. Thankfully for us, long-lens-clad paparazzi were on hand to capture Madge's mishap.
Despite the face-planting, Madonna's much-deserved New Year's vacation comes on the heels of a busy 2012 that saw a decadent Super Bowl performance, a new album that debuted at No. 1 and the highest-grossing tour of the year.
Madonna didn't get any "luvin'" on the bunny slopes in the Swiss Alps this holiday season.
The 54-year-old singer, clad in an impressive all-black ski outfit complete with helmet and goggles, took a few spills while trying to make her way down a snow-covered mountain in Gstaad, Switzerland, on Saturday, Dec. 29.
At one point, the "Give Me All Your Luvin'" singer actually completely face-planted into the snow, legs splayed behind her and a grim expression on her face.
The trip was a family affair, and Madonna and boyfriend Brahim Zaibat, 25, were joined by the Material Girl’s daughters Lourdes, 16, and Mercy, 6.
While mom struggled to stay upright on the bunny slopes, however, Lourdes was the image of grace, cutting through the snow effortlessly on more difficult trails on her snowboard.
Even Mercy tried her hand at the winter sport, getting a private lesson from an instructor on the bunny slopes.
