When someone gives you a gift, you say thank you regardless of whether or not you actually like the gift. We all learned that one as a young kid when grandma would give us an ugly sweater at Christmas. But I guess that lesson was lost on Madonna because a fan in Venice gave her a bouquet of hydrangeas and instead of cherishing the fan’s gesture, she muttered a rude comment. So fans, take note. If you give Madonna flowers, steer clear of hydrangeas–she hates them!
What ever happened to being gracious?
This little incident went down at at a press conference at the Venice Film Festival. A fan gave Madonna a big purple bouquet of hydrangeas and said, “You’re my princess.” Awww! The problem was that this was all on video and after a slight eye roll and stuffing the flowers under the table, the mic picked up Madonna’s next comment. She turned to someone next to her and said:
I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. He obviously doesn’t know that.
Uh, and why would he? Is there a guide about what flowers to give to Madonna out there? Must have missed that one. He took the time to give you a gift and that’s what matters. Ugh, sometimes celebs suck. Remember when you were a nobody, Madonna, and be thankful next time!
