THAT’S AN ORDER YELLED WITH THE FORCE OF A GOOP EDICT. I wouldn’t believe this story, but it nicely bookends a week of passive-aggression toward inanimate objects and terse comments directed at randoms. First Madonna was mean about the hydrangeas thing. Then her rep gave the world’s most ludicrous explanation, saying, ‘The hydrangea incident is so ridiculous… It’s not like she said she hated warm chocolate chip cookies and milk and little puppies! She’s entitled to like any flower she wants and she didn’t want to hurt the feeling of the hydrangeas of the world. No disrespect to the hydrangeas lovers of the world but she prefers different types of flowers.’ And then Madonna filmed a faux-pology because, apparently, even during TIFF, she has nothing better to do than film reaction videos like a frustrated teenager who’s missing MySpace. Aaand, she’s doing it again with one newspaper reporting that TIFF volunteers have been ordered to face the wall in Madonna’s presence and NOT look at her. The Globe & Mail reports: ‘It was a bit of a different story backstage, however, when eight of those volunteers were asked to turn their faces to a wall so that they would not look at the pop-star-turned-movie-director as she made her way to her press conference about the film. One volunteer told the Globe they all dutifully stood with their backs to her as she passed.’ 10 pictures of Madonna at TIFF on September 12.
