A video showing the singer-turned-director diss a gift she was given while at a press conference for her film "W.E." is heating up the web.

Note to Madonna fans: Not all gifts are good gifts.

A video of the singer, who premiered her second film, W.E. at the Venice Film Festival, has become one of the hottest things on the web Tuesday. 


In the clip, Madonna is handed a bouquet of hydrangeas from a fan. Directly after saying "Thank you," the Material Girl puts the flowers on the floor, rolls her eyes and tells her co-panelists, "I absolutely loathe hydrangeas," adding "He obviously doesn't know that."
