Now the cape’s designer, Giorgio Armani, has offered up his explanation of the design.
He shared with the Associated Press that the cape was meant to have a hook, but the “Living For Love” singer requested a tie instead. And what Madonna wants, Madonna gets.
“Madonna, as we all know, is very difficult,” he said, with a smile, the AP notes. “That’s all there was to it.”
The Queen of Pop previously told her side of the story on The Jonathan Ross Show last week.
“I was told to tie my cape and start much further back and I had to walk further, and everyone was worried my cape would slide off, so they tied it really tight around my neck,” she explained. “I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled the silky string, and it wouldn’t come undone. … I had two choices: I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall.”
She further noted, “No more capes, cape fear is over.”
Whatever the case may be, Madonna has new music out this week. She will release Rebel Heart on March 6.
