  2. Aww... I love hydrangeas. How to reconcile this with my love for Madonna? Conundrum of the day...

  3. Meanwhile, there are people dying of starvation in Somalia. Thanks for this breaking, earth-shattering news, Andy. I will never be the same after learning this revelation about Madonna.

  5. Ironic, considering that Hydrangeas are used to represent "frigidness and heartlessness", according to the website I checked.

  6. Her look and comment makes her more real I think.

  8. That could have been far ruder. You know how often she's given flowers?

    "I'm quite sure that if she wanted flowers, she could afford to buy them herself."

  9. When did she acquire the Lee Press-on Accent? She sounds like Maggie Thatcher's niece.

  10. Oh come on - I expected her to throw the flowers at the poor guy. Her response was fairly civilized.

  11. I don't think she was being rude at all. I just think she was kind of caught off-guard here and didn't expect someone to walk up to her at a press conference and give her flowers. She did say "thank-you." The vibe I got from the video was more of a "wow..that was weird" rather than a rude "I don't want these" type of response.

  12. I absolutely loathe carnations.

    I would have done the same thing. Except I'd make sure my mic was off.

  13. Why is she still famous and relevant? Too bad she turned out like this. I wanted my Madonna to age gracefully and to act professionally to the end. Oh well.

  14. Madonna Who?

  15. I'm much less of a fan than back in the early 90's, but at least she accepted it and said, "thank you" before being snide.

    Although, I do admit to a bit of schadenfraude when she gets panned for her loathsome attempts at acting or directing exactly because of her disdain for those who look up to her... she is utterly without humility or genuine graciousness.

  16. It's not the gift. It's the sentiment, idiot.

  17. and this is precisely why I stopped liking Madonna. Love the music, can't bear the person. All that money and fame and she's still cold as ice...

  18. Gaga would never be such a loathsome ice queen! ;)

  19. The anti-Gaga.

  20. That woman is so ungracious and superior - such a leaaaauthsum example of a human being. Mind you, her daughter is an ugly, wide-shouldered grunt of a girl. That's bound to make mother madge grumpy.

  21. She was polite to the guy. Considering how famous she is, I'm not annoyed. Well, with her fake British accent, maybe, but not her reaction.

    What IS shocking is how much she looks like her 80s self here. I mean, damn.

    Posted by: Robert | Sep 5, 2011 6:19:38 PM

  22. Oh come off it. She accepted them, and she made an aside comment. I've been given gifts that I was thankful for, but not necessarily for the gift but for the thought. If someone gave me something that I loathe, I'd probably still keep it, wouldn't change the fact that I hate them. LOL.

  23. Dear superior Alan. It must have utterly killed you to have clicked on this video during your 3 minute break from the refugee camp in Somalia where you are working with a non-profit relief group to inoculate children against disease. I am sorry you came to a blog for breaking news rather than

  24. I am not a fan of Madonna, but I don't feel she is rude. She should have been smarter to said something with cameras and mics were off. That said, when did she start with that stupid british accent?

  25. You must type really fast, Robert. Kudos on posting two comments four seconds apart.
