Speaking backstage from the Grammy press room, SZA explained the cause of her injury.
“It’s very funny because I fell out a bed right before it was time to leave and get ready for this,” she said. “Like the day before, but that’s the way it goes. Everything awesome in my life has always come with something like very random, but it just adds to the energy.”
Carrying that energy, she hinted at more music in the pipeline. A moment earlier, she revealed her next album would be ready soon. “It’s probably my most unisex project yet, if that makes sense. It’s for everyone,” she explained.
What happens to SZA?
The “Good Days” artist received the award for her collaboration with Doja Cat for “Kiss Me More”. However, she arrived at the ceremony on crutches. SZA revealed that she sustained a leg injury while getting out of bed.
She said, “It’s very funny because I fell out of bed right before it was time to leave and get ready for this. Like the day before… but that’s the way it goes. Everything awesome in my life has always come with something like very random, but it adds to the energy.”
Did SZA actually break her leg?
SZA has revealed that she didn’t know her ankle was broken when she accepted her Grammy on Sunday (3 April), after she injured herself by falling out of bed.
The US artist navigated the ceremony on crutches and in a wheelchair, believing her ankle was only sprained. She later discovered she had chipped off part of her anklebone.
During an interview posted to the official Grammys YouTube channel after SZA collected her award, she explained: “It was in the middle of the night and I fell very, very wrong, and it hurts.”
