Last week at the Venice Film Festival, some well meaning fan presented Madonna with a bunch of hydrangeas when she was on a press panel for her movie, W.E. Apparently, Madonna does not like hydrangeas. This was evident from the exaggerated eyeroll she gave to the person on her left, and the comment she made to the person on her right, which was “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.” Seems she forgot she was already miked for the press conference.
In defense of her statement, she posted a video on You Tube, which is weird and lame, to say the least. It is a video of her “apologizing” to hydrangeas, and by the end, she gives up, and proclaims her hatred for them once again.
Good lord. Talk about missing the mark. How much of a spoiled princess are you when you think your flower preference is international news? How about the fact that she was completely rude and ungrateful to some poor fan, who, in what had to be one of the highlights of his life, got to personally present her with (what he probably thought was) a lovely bunch of flowers. Would it have been so difficult for her to accept the gesture for what it was, and just deal with the flowers until she was able to hand them off to one of her servants or something? The whole incident screams of someone who is told “yes” all the time, and has been for so long, that she’s forgotten basic human kindness and courtesy. Fans made her who she is today – she should try to remember that.
