Controversy Over Madonna, Lady GaGa And A Bouquet Of Hydrangeas

During a press conference at the Venice Film Festival, Madonna was filmed dismissing a bouquet of hydrangeas from a fan, the video went viral and now Madonna’s Rep is Liz Rosenberg is addressing the incident.

Also Madonna apparently was quoted by Belgian magazine “Le Soir” Dissing Lady GaGa’s obsession with her. Madonna’s rep has denied the quote!

ABC News has the story:

When a reporter asked Madonna about her fans, including Lady Gaga, the singer replied, according to the magazine: ?I have no comment on her obsessions related to me, because I do not know if it is based on something profound or superficial.?

The interview was dated Sept. 3.

But Madonna?s rep, Liz Rosenberg, is firing back, telling ABC News.com in a statement tonight: ?Madonna has said nothing negative about Gaga.?.

Madonna has been forced to address the ‘hydrangeas incident’ when she insulted a fan at a recent press conference In Venice Film Festival.. Madonna’s rep apologises for fan hydrangea insults in an statement to CNN:

Madonna “absolutely loathes hydrangeas,” she said after she was given a huge purple one at the Venice Film Festival — apparently not realizing her microphone was live.

She smiled thinly and thanked the fan who gave her the flower as she was promoting her movie “W.E.” in Italy this week. But as she put it under the table, she told the person next to her she hates the flowers. “He obviously doesn’t know that,” she adds.

A video of the remark has gone viral online, with more than 1 million views on YouTube already, and it’s apparently not winning her new fans — it’s getting nearly twice as many “dislikes” as “likes.”

A Madonna rep defended the star’s preferences.

“She’s entitled to like any flower she wants and she didn’t want to hurt the feeling of the hydrangeas of the world,” the rep said in a short statement. “No disrespect to the hydrangeas lovers of the world but she prefers different types of flowers.”
