FILE - This Feb. 8, 2015 file photo shows Madonna performing at the 57th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. The pop icon said in an interview Thursday, March 5, that being active saved her from serious injuries at the Brit Awards.

Madonna said the cape had been tied too tightly at the neck, and after the performance, said she suffered whiplash. (Photo by John Shearer/Invision/AP)NEW YORK (AP) — Exercising regularly has been like a prayer answered for Madonna: The singer says thanks to staying active, she didn't suffer much after falling during her performance at the Brit Awards.
