Giorgio Armani Calls Madonna ‘Difficult’ After Cape Mishap at Brit Awards
It was the fall heard around the world.
The 56-year-old pop legend was dragged down three steps on live TV last Wednesday, after her cape failed to come loose and her dancers pulled it backwards as part of her routine. The designer discussed the incident backstage at the Emporio Armani Show at Milan Fashion Week, suggesting that the fall was Madonna’s fault.
Speaking to Associated Press, Armani said that her request to change the cape’s closing mechanism is what sent her flying down the stairs during the performance. “Madonna, as we know, is very difficult,” he said, adding, “this cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn’t able to open it with her hands. That’s all there is to it.”
We are just happy that Madonna was able to finish her performance and that she and the cape survived the incident.
