Over the last few days Madonna has drawn some attention on YouTube for being caught on tape at a press conference saying that she absolutely loathes hydrangeas, after being given a bouquet by a fan. Fans, who were shocked and appalled that Madonna would so blatantly diss the fan that gave her the bouquet, as well as by the fact that anyone could hate hydrangeas so much, watched the video over 2.4 million times.
Shortly after the video was released, it was revealed that the fan that gave her the flowers was actually a Belgian prankster—he knew that Madonna didn’t like hydrangeas and gave them to her on purpose in hopes of a funny reaction. Examiner.com reports that the prankster, Vitalii Sediuk, “apparently knew—from previous interviews—that Madonna didn’t like hydrangeas (she is allergic to them), so that’s why he handed them to her. In fact, Mr. Sediuk followed Madonna after the press conference to see what she did with the hydrangeas and she was actually pretty nice to him.”
Check out the original press conference video below and then read on to see Madonna’s reaction.
Yesterday a video reacting to the hydrangea incident was uploaded to Madonna’s YouTube channel and is going viral today. The video, called ‘Madonna’s love letter to hydrangeas’, features Madonna apologizing to the hydrangeas…or not. She says, “You have no idea how many nights I have lost thinking how I hurt you. Words cannot express how sorry I am…[but] I’m left with the fact that I still hate hydrangeas! And I will always hate them!”
I don’t think anyone will be bringing Madonna hydrangeas again anytime soon! Let us know what you think of the Madonna hydrangea incident and her response in the comments below.
