I absolutely loath hydrangeas too. Oh, wait, I have hydrangeas confused with Madonna. I always mix those two up.
What? She hates hydrangeas. What's she supposed to do, pretend to like them just to be polite?Oh wait. That's what she did.Her only real offense was forgetting that she was near a mike and was on camera when she was having the sort of exchange that we always have with our friends and confidants in situations like that.Painting her as some sort of condescending aristocrat with that post title doesn't really do you justice, Professor.
What, did a hydrangea run over her puppy when she was a kid or what?
She looks damn good for 53.
I'm with Madonna. Cross-dressing African carnivores of all types fill me with rage!No, wait...feeling a little dyslexic this morning.
No, Michael, her offense is that she said it while sporting a mild British accent, and she is a working-class girl from Detroit.Listen to the way she pronounces 'loath.'
You might think hydrangeas are Madonna's favorite plant but it's thoughts like that that've nearly ruined this country.
"Her only real offense was forgetting that she was near a mike and was on camera"She's pop royalty, and so is nearly always near a mike or on camera. We cannot assume she didn't intend for this to be heard. But let's say she 'forgot', or thought she was somehow out of range from the mike sitting directly in front of her.The price of massive fame includes the loss of private moments when such remarks are heard by the chosen few.The benefit is that she doesn't have to give a shit what lowly people like me think about her.
She probably assumed a real fan would know her flower preference: the Red Hot Poker.This smells like Titus bait.
I think "I absolutely loathe hydrangeas" will be a nice thing to say when I'm feeling above it all.
I thought the flower was puffy and awkward.I would have done the same thing, but you don't send me flowers anymore.
I never found her worth even a minute of my attention. Since this clip was 16 seconds I watched. Now, she is not worth 10 seconds of my attention. Thanks for lowering the the bar.
Not such a diva moment. I give you a kiss darling.
It looked like a heck of a hydrangrea. My wife loves hydrangeas.
"She looks damn good for 53."That's heavy makeup. You should see the horror she is without it.
Where did she get that British accent?
She looks damn good for 53.Like a virgin.

Hydrangeas gave her a bad **but of course she s/b use to this** review?Need a Chip Ahoy inspired animated hydrangea popping out of her head....or other orifice.
How do you think the hydrangea felt?
The longest 15 minutes of lame.....evah!!!
How can you loathe hydrangeas? It's not like they're carnations :) (j/k, Madonna is a jerk).
I don't loathe any type of flower. It must be a woman thing.
Now, see, that was a fair dig at a celebrity.And I'm not even thinking deeply!
Madonna's entire career has been a series of examples of her reinventing herself. It's what she does. Why on Earth should she keep the accent she had as a child? What should she have replaced it with? An Althousian midlands?
a) How do you loathe a flower?b) 99% chance that guy just picked the flower out of a nearby flower bed. Who would actually buy a single stem hydrangea to give to someone? He was looking to get on camera.
Oh hydrangea, how do I loathe thee?Let me count the ways.I loathe thee to the depth and breadth and heightMy soul can reach....

I detest hydrangeas also. They are butt ugly. (And don't get me started on the blue ones.)
I loathe whenever someone uses the phrase "reinvent oneself", particulary wrt "Madonna."That's Madonna, an inventor. She's right up there with Edison and Tesla. Because she changed her hair style and put on a different sort of slutty outfit.She has a British accent, Mick, because she's a natural-born Michituckian, and therefore eligible to be MBEPTOTUS (Make-believe English Pop Tart of the US).
This other short video provides more context on:1.) who gave Maddona the flower and why, and2.) her ass.
Madge (I love the British tabloids) has been trying to prove to the world how sexy she is and then how classy she is.She's failed in both efforts.For God's sake, she's from Jersey. She needs to get over herself.
Mick, Are natural born Americans who adopt an unnatural accent disqualified from being POTUS?
Nobody should be giving Madonna anything.One time I went to see Camille Paglia, and the announcement in advance was: don't give her anything. There's good reason for that.
Mick wrote:Where did she get that British accent?I understand you can get just about anything at Harrod's.
I love that there's always at least one devil's advocate in the comments around here. Thanks, Michael E. Lopez, for pointing out that Madonna did, in fact, exert herself to be polite and isn't getting proper credit for that enormous effort, and, really, she's doing us all a favor, actually, just by existing, and we're all insufficiently grateful, and leave Madge ALLOOOONE.
Didn't she get the accent when she married Guy.
Morrissey, however, likes flowers of all kinds.
I just noticed this post is missing a civility bullshit tag.
She was a bitch before she found spirituality and she's a bitch now.So what's the point again? Oh yeah:Feeling good about yourself,...
Oh this is for @CrackEmcee.Came across someone who hates the New Age as much as you and considers Obama the great illusion.Go to Amazon and pg. 200 of Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges. Oddly, he's extremely progressive, but there's tons of common ground there...
Why would anyone hate a flower?
I love this.She looks fab and she is bitchy.More please Madge.
