Madonna wouldn't accept a lifetime achievement prize if it were offered to her because she has "lots of life left to live"

Madonna wouldn't accept a lifetime achievement prize if it were offered to her.

The 56-year-old singer has revealed she would not be keen to be presented with such an accolade because she believes she has so much more music to create.

When questioned as to whether she would accept such an award, she said: "I've got lots of life left to live. Offer it to me in 100 years and I might reconsider."

The refusal comes just weeks after the star suffered a painful on-stage tumble at the BRIT Awards ceremony at London's O2 Arena during a performance of her single 'Living For Love', when she was pulled to the ground by an Armani cape she had been unable to untie.

While disappointed the show had been overshadowed by the accident, Madonna admitted she was also frustrated and confused by designer Giorgio Armani's subsequent comments, in which he said she was "very difficult" to work with.

She explained to The Sun newspaper: "I don't know why he said that. I was surprised. I thought we had a good relationship. When I read it, I was like: 'Oh really?'

"He made me a lovely outfit. I was very appreciative of it. After the performance, he sent me flowers.

"He thanked me and said he hoped I was OK and applauded me for getting back up on the stage."
