Madonna took quit the tumble while performing on stage at last week's 2015 Brit Awards. Surrounded by puzzled, shirtless male dancers, the pop legend tripped over her lengthy Armani cape, which was designed by Giorgio himself. Even so, the Italian designer is not taking the heat for the massive slip.
Page Six reports that Armani told the AP, "Madonna, as we know, is very difficult." He continues, "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." Madonna's rep has responded to Armani's blame game, "Sh*t happens. Madonna loves Giorgio Armani." But perhaps Madonna will listen to seasoned designers now. Lol, just kidding, it's Madonna.
