Know this: gay men only like Madonna in part for her music. The other part? Her unapologetic bitchiness.
Last week, some fan at the Venice Film Festival handed Her Royal Madgesty a bouquet of hydrangeas during a press conference for her movie W.E.. Madonna replied by politely saying “Thank you,” then rolling her eyes, putting the flowers under the table, and saying “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.” Today, Madonna has made a video apology for her actions… sorta. In it, she gleefully stomps on another hydrangea bouquet and says “So fuck you I like roses.”
Hydrangeas Against Violence and for Equality (HAVE) will likely file a lawsuit alleging floral abuse via pollen to their nearest botanist. The hydrangeas will get their revenge, Madonna!
Other than being an ungrateful bitch (who really has no place at a film festival, PERIOD), I think the most galling thing about this episode was her expectation that people know and/or give a damn that she doesn’t like hydrangeas.
I am in complete agreement that she has the right to like or dislike whatever flower she wants and think it’s great she is attentive enough to address what others are saying. There is a lot of class behind that video.
And notice the symbolism behind the subtitles. Very clever. Simple. Elegant.
Bwahahahahaha. She could have had some common decency and feigned happiness, but of course, that’s a sign of class and that is one thing she has NEVER been accused of. I love hydrangeas and loathe roses AND i love this video. Go Madge, keep on being a bitch that i love.
So… she *did* hurt the feelings of the hydrangeas of the world?
This wants to make me send her a bouquet of them out of spite.
@Amy Grindhouse: Certainly the poor fan that gave them to her. There’s being ‘bitcy’ and just being a ‘bitch’. I think this is a case of the latter. And what’s up with her borderline (ha!) pedophiliac dating habits nowadays? Class up, Madonna.

Madonna is old and tired.
She was fun and hot in the 1980’s but that was a quarter century ago. The poor heffa thinks fucking 17 year old boys will keep her young and relevant but, her time is over.
Her bitchy reaction to a fan who gave her a flower just proves one thing: you can take the girl out of Grand Rapids, MI but, you can’t take Grand Rapids, MI out of the girl.
who is she?
@christopher di spirito: That is not true. I did not like Madonna in her heyday. I never listened to her music and that was extremely difficult because it was everywhere. It is only now that i happen to think she is amazing. FYI: Anyone who lives by following their heart is never old and tired.
God I. hate Madonna. She’s so frigging stupid
I think bathing in 17 year old sperm makes one young. kind of the opposite of bathing in virgin blood.
Nobody cares whether or not she likes hydrangeas. The hydrangeas don’t care, flower lovers don’t care. The reason this got attention is because she is being incredibly rude to a fan! And she doesn’t even seem to get it.
Instead, she should apologise for making dreadful movies…
@Timmeeeyyy!!!: EXACTLY. She hasn’t made a decent album since “American Life”… and now she spends her time working on movies?? Stay away from film, bitch!
I don’t know of any 50+ year old woman that still acts like a petulant 13 year old. It’s quite embarrassing to see her behave this way. Has anyone told her she looks a little weird acting like that? I think she’s matched her daughters age in maturity, so they’re sisters now…in a way.
Anyway, this video was kinda funny.
But I spoke to the kingdom of flowers and sadly only found one fan, the Amorphophallus titanum, aka the “corpse flower.” It’s waiting for her to come and sit on it.
Um – she was not rude to a fan.
That guy was a journalist.
I have always loved her sense of humor. She has always had her tongue planted firmly in her cheek when it comes to media and publicity, and as the video above shows, she gets the joke. WHO CARES IF SHE LIKES A FLOWER and who cares if she isn’t the MOST POLITE person to a reporter who probably knew ahead of time that she hates that kind of flower.
It’s crazy to expect Madonna to apologize over such a trivial matter. She’ll have enough apologizing to do when (if) W.E. is given a wide release.
@SteveC: An ungrateful, rude bitch is an ungrateful, rude bitch.
@Allen D.: Word.
@shmuel: I don’t expect her to apologize. I expect her not to act like a cunt in the first place.
DO gay men like Madonna? I have like one gay friend who’s ever said he’s into her.
@Eric Auerbach: Yes and the great thing about Madonna is that she got where she is all by herself. Unlike every other pathetic son or daughter of connected parents who give them an undeserved career Madonna is not a psuedo celebrity. Her drive and ambition is very much worthy of admiration and respect.
I like your style.
only way see can get any attention these days her music sucks from 93-11 she is dried up bones she rude nasty all these fans taking up for her and she wouldnt even notices them if they would say hi to her thats a fact only time she speaks is if there is a major network filming her
Wow, I didn’t know Madge could be so snooty. Saw a funny parody of her snobbish remarks at the Venice Film Festival, by the way. http://youtu.be/RhyJhJYBTlY
Wait, wait, wait… are we suddenly worried about if the same bitch that deep-throated a Coke bottle, and slit her hands open and danced in front of some burning crosses WENT TOO FAR?
