madonna-hates-hydrangeas

On September 12 2011, Madonna released a video in response to the controversy surrounding her dislike for hydrangeas.

On September 1, Madonna attended a press conference for her directorial debut W.E. at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. Just prior to the beginning of the conference, Madonna was handed a hydrangea by a fan. Although she accepted the flowers with a smile and told the fan “thank you,” she immediately turned to her costar, and with a hot mic, said, I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. He obviously doesn’t know that.  Madonna’s remark quickly became a subject of controversy in celebrity news, leading to much online gossips and commentaries criticizing her fuss over flowers.

“I’m a massive Madonna fan, absolutely. I’ve only met her briefly. We have some friends in common and a message will go back and forth. ‘She says hi,’ or ‘I say hi.’ But, obviously how can you not love Madonna?”
