It's a pretty good rule of thumb that a wet stage and high heels aren't a good mix. No one ever taught Demi Lovato this rule.

Lovato performed a special concert Sunday at the WaterMarke Tower in downtown Los Angeles. Her stage was a slippery death trap in the middle of a pool because, well, it looks hella cool on Instagram.

That is, when it all goes right. Which it did not.

In a video of the fall, which Lovato herself posted on Instagram, you can see her go down pretty hard on her right leg. Ever the trooper, Lovato jumps right up and hops into the pool because, frankly, no one can see you crying when you're covered in pool water.

"#NOTCoolForTheSummer," Lovato wrote on Instagram, referencing her new sapphic summer jam, "Cool for the Summer."

She also joked about the fall on Twitter, writing: "Well... It's not a tour without busting ass!!!!!!"

Since Demi made fun of herself first, we don't have to feel bad about posting this action shot of the fall in progress:
