Madonna, Queen of Quite Literally Everything, has had a rather whirlwind week of promoting during her stay at the Venice Film Festival for the screening of her new directorial debut, W.E.

But apart from talking up her own film, the pop legend also let a few a few details slip about her upcoming release in 2012: During an interview with Sweden’s Sveriges Television, Lady M revealed that the lead single from her twelfth studio album will be released in February or March, and that the accompanying album would arrive later that Spring. She also went on to confirm the rumored collaboration with Ray of Light producer William Orbit, simply stammering (after being thoroughly caught off guard by the question of what to expect from the re-teaming): “…More good music!”

The Holy Madge also took the time to field a few questions from The Common People during a press conference at the film festival, as well as acepting a few sacrificial offerings.

Above is video evidence of one such gifting, as a Commoner feebly hands the Queen a long-stemmed hydrangea. Sadly, the gift-giver has clearly not spent nearly enough time worshiping at the Haus of M, as Madge quickly casts the wretched thing under the table and announces/overly enunciates off-camera: “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.”

YOU FOOL: THE QUEEN WILL NOT HAVE YOUR FORSAKEN HYDRANGEAS, PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

Lesson learned: When in the presence of a legend, don’t bother bringing anything leafy. Then again, you know who doesn’t mind a good flower or two?

Just saying.
