Jennifer Lopez is taking her tumble onstage at the American Music Awards in stride, joking with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that it was completely intentional.

“Did I trip a little bit?” she laughs. “Yeah, I meant to do that. That was part of the choreography.” On the serious side, Lopez is keeping perspective on the accident, “the measure of things isn’t what happens when you fall, it’s how you recover,” she says.
