Don't buy Madonna hydrangeas

We can learn a valuable lesson from last week’s Venice Film Festival: Madonna really, really does not like hydrangeas. It'd probably be wise not to buy her any.

And thanks to a fan’s YouTube upload, we never have to make that mistake.

During a press conference for her upcoming movie “W.E.,” Madge was handed a hydrangea bouquet. It went downhill from there.

Smiling, she accepted the flowers, telling the fan, “Thank you, thank you.” Then Madge stowed the purple blossoms and turned to the woman sitting next to her (just off camera) to vent about the horrible offense.

"I absolutely loathe hydrangeas,” she says in what sounds like a British accent. “He obviously doesn't know that." So do we believe Madonna hates hydrangeas that much, or are our legs being pulled? Apparently, she's really not a fan. Madonna's rep tells CNN: “She’s entitled to like any flower she wants and she didn’t want to hurt the feelings of the hydrangeas of the world...No disrespect to the hydrangeas lovers of the world but she prefers different types of flowers.”

But hey, maybe she was just cranky about the reviews for “W. E.”

Luckily, Madonna hasn’t quit her day job – she told reporters in Venice that her upcoming album should be out this spring, according to Billboard.

"I've started a little bit of work in the studio," she said in an interview with Swedish Sveriges Television.

    Its not about the flower, its about the ungrateful response.
    Why the hell is the news like this?
    She does have the right to dislike whatever she wants, however this is a fan who took the time to do so.
    B&*%^ you better not complain if I give you something.

    If you intend to know the type of perfume or still have problems deciding what kind of fragrance that suits your personality, this site may be able to help you.
    In the market is currently circulating around 1000 types and brands of perfume and an estimated 100 types of new perfume will appear every year.
    With so many types of perfume is actually easier for us to choose, but at the time of financial crisis such as now the price shot up when the perfume come to you perfume may already be part of your life so that there is no option to stay put in the budget. Well, to ease the budget it would be nice if you start now you begin to choose scents that best suits your personality and target. That way you have been frugal.

    this hydragenas "situation" is really annoying..
    The point of the "sarcastic" video response she made, I assume, is to tell us all that we are making a big deal of her reaction and that she has the right to like roses instead.

    But that's not the point. It's not about which flower you should or shouldn't like – it's about being arrogant and ungrateful, and that's the whole story. And now she's even using the incident for some extra marketing. I don't find her youtube video funny at all.

    Then give it to someone who will appreciate what you do not like, it's that simple. Being gracious and appreciating the kind and thoughtful gestures of others is irrespective of social class, fame or fortune.

    I'm glad that all of you criticizing Madonna for her comment have never been given a present you didn't like. How fortunate you all are.

    You know, I have been given presents I didn't like more than once. In all occasions, I thanked the people who have given them to me. And I have complained about it to someone else, I have made remarks on a certain present someone gave me that I did not like at all. The only difference is that I did not have a camera and a mic on be, registering everything. At least I am not being hypocritical criticizing Madonna for something so insignificant that I have done. Lucky you guys, that have never had this "problem".

    It's funny how CNN cut off the part she says "Thank You" to the guy. It's also funny how people ignore the fact that HE should not have approached the table. There was a breach of security, a man with an object in his hands approached her table, thankfully, it was only a bouquet of flowers. It's pretty clear that she wanted to get rid of him.

    And I am not sure he was a "fan". He was indeed a reporter who was outside the building, with a TV crew, waiting to ask her about the flowers he had given her inside (did he really think she would leave carrying the flowers?). It seems more like a prank from a TV show. If a Brazilian TV show (Panico na TV) managed to enter the Oscar's ceremony with a hidden camera without permission or wristband, and "pranked" Tom Cruise and other celebrities, this surely seems something like that.

    Very boorish on her part. When a fan gives you a gift, you take it, smile and even if you don't like it, pretend you do. I have never been a big Madonna fan, but she has marketed herself very well and for that I give her kudo's. And I agree with other posts, her age does not support the wardrobe or the makeup that she sometimes sports.

      Pop diva Madonna did not like her nickname ‘Madge’ until she found that it is the British shorthand for ‘Your Majesty’.

      The pop star, who shifted to London to live with her film director spouse Ritchie in the late 1990s, hated it when the local tabloid press began calling her Madge.

      However, when she learnt that the name was an abbreviation of Your Majesty, she became comfortable.

      “Then someone told her it was an abbreviation of Your Majesty. Ever since, she’s settled in quite nicely, that Madge,” Contactmusic quoted Ritchie, as saying.

    I liked her music and the woman herself back in the old days, but she is really trying too hard to hang on to past glory. "He obviously doesn't know I loathe hydrangeas" implies that people should care enough about her to probe into and (even worse) cater to every facet of her taste, which honesty is no longer the case. I might make that effort for the old queen of England, but not for the old queen of pop.

    Just because some one has the freedom or right to say something doesn't mean they should. Its called manners or in this case the lack there of. This women has made her money off her fans. She could be decent not make a face or a comment and that was that. Making excuses for an over middle aged women who still doesnt know how to act in public is just sad. Just like her looks and everything else, her career is fading. There is a whole bright big world out there of new starts just waiting to replace her and after this pretty sure most wont be sad to see her go.

    Look, I don't like Madonna, but I'm sure we've all been in that situation before. Who hasn't received a gift they didn't like, and made a comment to their friend? It's not like she threw the flowers at her fan. I remember getting gifts I didn't like, and making a comment to someone. BUT, I didn't throw the gift away, nor told them to their face, nor was I ungrateful. I just simply didn't like it, and that's that. I loved the gesture, and embraced the gift. Is it a crime not to like something now?

      It's not a crime to dislike something. You're missing the point! It's her tactless, ungrateful response in the presence of the giver of the heartfelt gift that is the 'crime'. It wouldn't have killed her to keep her comments for later in a more private setting. But this just brings to light how classless she is.

    THIS is why Madonna will never ascend to the level of LEGEND like Michael Jackson. Her talent was marginal to begin with, though she knew to push boundaries and vamp in videos. But she's one among many ungrateful celebs who will merely be a footnote in the pantheon of pop culture. UNLIKE Mr. Jackson, who - despite his marvelous talent - always expressed Appreciation to fans and treated them as people, regardless of race/age/class/status...and, most remarkably, even through his darkest hours when most of us abandoned him, through his vindication when the falsehood of those charges was proven. Not many celebrities known how to stay humbled and appreciative, and to truly give happiness and express kindness to others. For all her accomplishments and ego, Ms. Madge is among the lowest commonfolk of us all in the end.

    A hydrangea is the most beautiful plant in the world. They don't need much sunlight and as long as you keep them from drying out they produce the best showiest bloom starting in spring and then slowly fading in color all summer long and into fall. If you can't live in the tropics with year round flowers, hydrangeas are the next best thing. I feel sorry for Madonna if she can't appreciate what a hydrangea plant has to offer – she is missing out on something wonderful.

    I watched the full clip: the guy said "You're my princess, I love you" as he handed her the flowers. She should have told him to get a life. People get upset at celebs when the snub a fan, but many fans completely embarrass themselves and the star, it hurt just watching it. Go Madonna!

      I don't think hydrangeas are the issue here. It is the fact that she is rude, ungrateful with poor manners. People made her who she is . She was a garbage eater nobody from Michigan with no real talent . Wow, I can't believe how self centered and ungrateful she is. What difference does it make if it's carnation or hydrangea or a rose ? It is the gesture that counts.

    Ungrateful and cold, but we already knew that about her. I like what Joshua said above, "Only someone that wealthy can develop such a pointless aversion." But notice how she is also now wearing a cross? How convenient being that she is in Italy. She's a fraud. Always has been.

    Hey Madge, your not british, i know its hard to accept being an american but its simple fact, you are not british.

    You have to be born in britain to be british, you can hold a british passport, you can have a british kid but it never makes you british, lose the accent, its insulting to all the british people out there, including myself.

    I dont put on an american accent and you may find the british people in america dont, they accept their birthrights even if they hold american visa'a or indeed citizenship, they dont lose their accents, losing yours is an insult to the british people you are trying to persuade people you are and an insult to the american people you are trying to disvow with every word you speak

    I love hyrdangaes plants, especially light blue or pink when they are full grown. She is just plain rude. How can someone loathe a flower? Garlic, or a gnat infested weed is one thing. She is trying hard to hang on to fame though. She was fun in the 1980's and I liked her in Evita but she is rude. But then again she can make herself to be anyone; even a fake Brit.

      I agree. The point wasn't that is was hydrangea, nor would it have been for a dainty daisy, a regular rose or the dreaded carnation. The point was that it was a gift from a fan who himself thought the flower was beautiful, and out of his kind and generous nature, unselfishly bestowed a gift to someone he cherished – whether he admired her music, fame, beauty or iconic, legendary stature. She should have returned with the warm grace of someone who could actually have the capacity for recognizing kindness and purity of a warm heart and being able to return that kindness. Instead, years spent in relishing the 'Diva-heralded' spotlight simply callouses hearts and souls of many celebrities. Forgotten are words like 'thank you', 'we or I appreciate you,' and 'if it weren't for fans like you, sometimes I don't know how I would have made it here. But, because of your encouragement, I am lifted up. I love you all.' As Madonna and GaGa have evolved into more self-absorbed, self-centered neophytes, they have lost the simplicity of a genuine smile, an extended hand, an unselfish hug or a knee bowed to our world's youth to show our children that they are there for them, proud of them, praying for them and that their music is to keep them smiling. Bring back the stars who bought shoes at Goodwill, and who spend afternoons visiting the sick at St. Jude's Children's hospitals. With tornadoes, floods, fires, earthquakes, and jobs continued to be lost daily, "to those to whom has been given much, greater responsibility is expected." They could shine their love and fame on others. Sadly, they still just want to shine alone so that the only light that can be seen is theirs. But, we all remain so much brighter when we shine in each other's lives for the whole world to see.

Etiquette 101: If you do not like them ~ don't comment until the cameras and microphones are turned off! Then throw them out at a different location. Also, what is up with a "British" accent? Madonna you are an American! Either Be Proud or Surrender your Citizenship!!!

    • aimless4areason

      Do you realize that it has been proven that if you live in a specific area for an extended period of time (such as Madonna), you will tend to pick up the accent naturally? I grew up near Seattle, then moved down near Dallas, TX for 4 years and currently, traces of a southern accent is caught, unintentionally, in my every day normal not-too-much-of-a-Washingtonian accent? Cut her a little bit of break on that one – she is American, though with how long she has been living abroad, she may truly have picked up a bit of a British accent, regardless of intention, and it now seems quite normal to be speaking in a combination American English/British accent.
