Madonna always gets the last laugh.
After a recent press conference for her directorial debut W.E. in Venice, Italy, the 53-year-old singer-turned-director was criticized for making a catty comment about a bouquet of hydrangeas she received from an adoring male fan.
"I absolutely loathe hydrangeas," Madonna told W.E. star Andrea Riseborough. "He obviously doesn't know that."
Though Madonna's rep, Liz Rosenberg, told Us Weekly "the hydrangea incident is so ridiculous," the singer decided to poke fun at the situation by means of a short silent film.
"You have no idea how many nights I have lost thinking how I hurt you. Words cannot express how sorry I am," a weepy Madonna tells a bouquet of hydrangeas (watch above). "To think I may have caused you pain. My heart is going to burst with sadness. I need to know in time you may forgive me."
"If I could take back my words I would, but I can't, so what am I left with?" she asks, suddenly changing her tone. "I'm left with the fact that I still hate hydrangeas! And I will always hate them! It's a free country! So f--k you, I like roses!"
