Forget about showering your favorite celebrity with gifts. Save your money. Especially if you’re shopping for Madonna.
Madge got all high and mighty when an adoring fan presented her with purple hydrangeas during a recent press junket. As evidenced in this video, the over-the-hill songstress accepted the flowers before tossing them on the floor and complaining to a nearby woman, “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. He obviously doesn’t know that.” The horror! Next time he’ll remember to do his research.
Or maybe he’ll heed this advice: It doesn’t matter if your famous idol’s music led you to end an abusive relationship or if their movie convinced you to stop smoking. So they indirectly made your life better, and you feel you “owe” them something. You don’t. Because said celebrity will probably just spit in your face. Read on for 4 other celebrities who seriously need a lesson in gratitude:
1) Robert Pattinson. R-Patz doesn’t read the horoscopes — next time, try for the comics out of the Sunday paper. “On one occasion I got this really bizarre horoscope thing from someone. It was a full-on zodiac reading, charting and intersecting all this stuff. It was over 20 pages long and said we’re destined to be together. That was totally bizarre. I don’t really believe in that stuff anyway.” [Teen Hollywood]
2) Vanessa Hudgens. Eager to shed her Disney Channel image,High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens totally knocked her teen fans, saying, “Teenagers come up to me and are obnoxious about the whole thing, like, ‘Oh my God, you’re that girl! You’re that girl from the Disney Channel.’” You’re lucky you’re that girl! Ya brat. [LA Times]
3) Ed Westwick. The Gossip Girl star thinks his NYC fans need to sober up. “I’ve been getting some weird mail, that’s for sure. There have been a couple of nights where some of the girls who live [in our building] have obviously got a bit drunk and written love letters and slipped them under the door. We have one stuck up on the fridge. She goes on some rant about how she is not like other girls and I should give her a call and we should hang out.” [Digital Spy]
4) Justin Bieber. The Biebs has a few rules he’d like to lay down for his trillions of admirers. “Just talk to me. Ask me how I’m doing. Introduce yourself instead of yelling, ‘Justin! Justin! Justin! Can I have a picture?’ And don’t come up to me while I’m eating.” Just a wee bit bossy, are we?
