Iggy Azalea has joked Jennifer Lopez was to blame for her fall at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) benefit concert on Friday night (08.22.14).

The 23-year-old rapper believes the 44-year-old singer caused her to dramatically stumble off the stage whilst she was performing 'Fancy' at the Avalon in Los Angeles because she had brought her "bad luck."

The blonde beauty recalled the moment her microphone was switched off when she and Jennifer performed a show together in Chicago a while ago, saying: "I said, 'At least I didn't fall over,' and she said 'It'll happen to you one day.' "

She added to 'Entertainment Tonight': "And then I invited her to watch that show [the benefit concert] and I fell off the stage! I was like, 'You're bad luck!' "

Iggy appeared to deal with tumble very well as she was pushed back on the stage by security guards, before she continued to sing the catchy track with Charli XCX.

After she finished her set, the stunning star told the audience she felt "blessed" to have not broken her legs during the fall.

Sam Smith and Tori Kelly also performed at the event benefiting Lifebeat - Music Fights HIV/AIDS, which is a national non-profit organization focused on educating youths about HIV and AIDS prevention.
