Poison singer Bret Michaels lost a smidgen of dignity when a falling prop broke his nose at the Tony Awards Sunday night, said People, but he got away "with his sense of humor intact." Michaels told his rep that he was helped up and saved by Shrek and the donkey, and laughed when Tony Awards host Neil Patrick Harris joked that the rocker had given new meaning to the term "headbanging."

“After all the booze, babes and bad behavior, said Howard Gensler in the Philadelphia Daily News, “something finally got the best of” Bret Michaels. But who would have ever guessed that it would be a prop at the Tony Awards that would deliver a blow to the Poison frontman?
Michaels sure did get "walloped by that mean old scenery," said Elizabeth Snead in the Los Angeles Times, which he "probably did not see because of his trademark cowboy hat." That, or the fact that he "reportedly missed his mark" after performing "Nothin' But a Good Time." Bret Michaels could probably sue—and "we're so betting" that he does.
