During a press conference in Venice, Italy, a male fan gave Madonna a bouquet of hydrangeas. Madonna accepted the flowers, said thank you, and then basically ripped the guy’s heart out.
“I absolutely loathe hydrangeas,” Madonna said to the person next to her, doing her best Queen Elizabeth impression. “He obviously doesn’t know that.”
This guy most likely gave Madonna the flowers, went to cross off an item on his bucket list, and then swam in a pool of his own joyful tears. So this is a pretty huge diss. But Madonna is not alone. Here are five more celebs that have reportedly dissed their fans.
Avril Lavigne: Avril Lavigne denies it, but she supposedly hates that her fans dress like her. She told Newsweek: "They quoted Hilary Duff saying, ‘Avril needs to appreciate her fans more and blah, blah, blah, blah.’ I’m like, excuse me? First off, it’s not even true. I never said that. And second, who the hell cares what she has to say about my fans? Whatever. Hilary Duff’s such a goody-goody, such a mommy’s girl.”
It’s cute how Avril pouts and has pink hair and thinks she’s Jim Morrison.
Zach Galifianakis: At the Hangover II after party, two hot girls reportedly approached Zach for a picture. He responded by scowling, shaking his head no, walking past them and mumbling something. An insider at the party said Galifianakis was just overwhelmed with the hoopla.
Ringo Starr: Ringo Starr warned fans that if they sent fan mail, it was gonna end up in the trash. “It’s gonna be tossed,” Starr told fans. “I'm warning you with peace and love I have too much to do. So no more fan mail. Thank you, thank you. And no objects to be signed. Nothing." I guess opening five letters a week is just too taxing.
Drake: At a concert last year, Drake brought a female fan onstage in front of tens of thousands of people. He sang to her, kissed both her cheeks, and then pretended like he was going to go in for the lips. At the last moment, he psyched her out. She was then sent offstage. That was just mean, Drake. Funny, but mean.
Will Ferrell: Autograph magazine named Will Ferrell the worst celebrity signer in it’s annual list of “10 Best and 10 Worst Hollywood signers.” I’m sure it gets annoying to be approached by fans everywhere you go, but how hard is it to scribble on a piece of paper every now and then?
