Not all "pillow talk" is sexy and romantic.

On Monday, Joel Madden had a quiet hissy fit over a recent purchase made by Nicole Richie, his fashionista wife: $3,000 worth of pillows.

"Do you ever look at your credit card bill and ask your wife how the hell she could spend 3 thousand dollars on pillows? I do. PILLOWS," the Good Charlotte singer, 31, tweeted.

Fashion and jewelry designer (and the Beverly Hills-bred daughter of Lionel Richie) Richie, 29, whom he married last December, had a simple retort: "That's why I ignore your calls," she tweeted.

Continued Madden: "I mean, can't we just go to Target and get our pillows??? [Shaking My Head]."

But Madden (who's father to her daughter Harlow, 3, and son Sparrow, 19 months) claimed he won this battle.

"Needless to say, the pillows are going back to the expensive ass pillow store. Hope she likes the Target pillows I'm putting in their place!…Trust me the pillows were gone before i even tweeted!"

When a pal asked how a pillow could cost so much, Madden joked, "I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes or some s***."

Not everybody was on his side, the rocker said. "Now i'm getting attacked by angry kids on Twitter, LOL!"
