Talk about kicking someone when they're down (literally).
Now, Giorgio Armani, the person who designed the cape, says Madonna herself is to blame for the wardrobe mishap.
In an interview with 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."
It seems peculiar that no one would have tested the cape out with the tie before attempting to rip it off of her during the actual performance. But if there's one lesson to take away from this whole incident, it's that Madonna always gets what she wants. You say "difficult," we say "boss."
