OOPS: Madonna wore a Giorgio Armani Prive black silk cape with a red lining during her performance at the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday night.
All well and good – except the cape almost caused her to be seriously injured. The singer fell backward off a podium when one of her backup dancers grabbed the cape and pulled it –one assumes to dramatically rip it off her back.
Instagram and Twitter were immediately filled with fans expressing concern – and a fair number of jokes, including numerous images of Edna Mode from “The Incredibles” and her famed maxim, “No capes!”
Madonna herself posted on her Instagram account: “Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine!”
Presumably there are literal gardens of flowers on their way to Madonna from Armani.
