Madonna receives loathsome flower from fan at Venice Film Festival

Here’s a lesson for Madonna: Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Especially when you’re on camera.

At a Venice Film Festival press conference for Madge’s new picture, “W.E.,” a fan came over to the diva and handed her a hydrangea. How kind, right? How could Madonna possibly make this a bad P.R. situation?

“I absolutely loathe hydrangeas,” the material girl said after rolling her eyes. “He obviously doesn’t know that.”

The person also obviously didn’t know that you were gonna be kind of a jerk about his very nice present. But take heart, fan. The reviews for Madonna’s second directorial work aren’t that good.

Watch and learn from one fan’s mistake below.
