Madonna Apologizes for Trash-Talking Hydrangeas

Cone bras, the Sex book, “Papa Don’t Preach,” rolling on the floor in a wedding dress, Kabbalah cult groups, etc. With 25-plus years of celebrity madness under her belt, it would be hard to damage Madonna’s reputation. (The scandal surrounding her school in Malawi probably did the most harm and even that has left her unscathed.)

But then again, we now live in a social media-infested world of celebrity journalism. Last week, you may recall, there was a viral moment when a microphone caught the star saying she didn’t like hydrangeas after she was handed a bouquet of them at the Venice Film Festival. People got mad, including one anonymous commenter who sent us an irate email after we tweeted the story, saying Madonna needs to “shut her mouth.” Let’s all just calm down.

Perhaps fearing further repercussions from talking crap about hydrangeas, Madonna has recorded a video apology. She’s really sorry crazy anonymous commenter. Really.
