Madonna created a firestorm on the internet for an incident that occurred while she was promoting her new movie, W.E. at the Venice Film Festival earlier this week. Someone tried to be nice and handed her a bouquet of hydrangeas, but she quickly handed them to someone else and muttered, “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. Obviously he didn’t know that.” And yesterday, Madonna’s representative defended her client’s rejection of the flowers, saying “The hydrangea incident is so ridiculous..It’s not like she said she hated warm chocolate chip cookies and milk and little puppies!” But I mean come on, she works out for five hours a day. She can’t do that and like all those things. – Us
