The REAL Reason Madonna Fell At The BRITs... By Giorgio Armani!
The Italian fashion designer bares all following Her Madgesty’s catastrophe at last week's ceremony...
Madge, who fell backwards on-stage down a flight of stairs, took to social media immediately after the incident to assure fans that she was OK despite being treated by doctors for whiplash.
Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up!... https://t.co/zrCAqweiLo

Armani, who created the ‘Maleficent meets Count Dracula’ cape for Madonna's performance, has since diverted blame away from his design and is quoted by The AP as saying: "Madonna, as we know, is very difficult. 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."
Talking to Jonathan Ross ahead of her appearance on the chat show host’s programme later this month, the 56-year-old revealed that the fall was down to a last-minute alteration to her outfit.

She explained: "I was told to tie my cape and start much further back and I had to walk further and everyone was worried my cape was going to slide off so they tied it really tight. So here I am marching in like the Queen, I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled the slinky string and it wouldn't come undone."
The revelations come following the announcement of her Rebel Heart tour, which hits the UK in December. The iconic singer will play four arena shows in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow.
Madonna’s brand new album Rebel Heart is due for release March 10.
