Pillow fight! Newlyweds Nicole Richie and Joel Madden got into a cute little tiff on Twitter this week over a fairly soft topic: pillows. “Do you ever look at your credit card bill & ask your wife how the hell she could spend 3 thousand dollars on pillows?” Madden asked his followers. “I do. I mean can’t we just go to Target and get our pillows???” Richie, who was busy taking in the fall collections at Paris Fashion Week, playfully responded to her hubby, writing, “That’s why I ignore your calls.” But Madden wasn’t going down without a fight. “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,” later adding, “I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes.” Unfortunately for the Good Charlotte rocker, it looked like Twitter was on Team Richie in this domestic diss — Madden wrote that while the pillows were “already on their way back to the store,” he was “getting attacked by angry kids on Twitter.” Hey, you can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep! —Kate Hogan

It’s not their job to save the whole world, people. I’m sure if you ever made that kind of money every single extra cent would be given away, right? How much do you donate now? If they donate a certain percentage shouldn’t you if you’re going to complain about how others spend money?

Nicole deserves $3,000 pillows.

$3000.00 for pillows?!?!?!?!?! WOOOW! They crack me up, normal folks here. Husband getting upset with the missus over spending too much money on silly things. Classic!!!

The day that he got into a fight with Nicole I actually met Joel he was just walking around Best Buy in King of Prussia,PA lol. He was nice and really funny.

Cute Twitter chat, but I hope for their sake that this doesn’t spell trouble on down the road. It’s all cute in the beginning. Though they’ve been together a while before getting married, so he should know what to expect at least. I do think Target has pillows that are just fine, so I’m with Joel on this one.

WOW… I love Nicole but I must admit that I am going with TEAM JOEL this time. I bet those Target pillows are even better looking than the pricey ones. on

Hey Nicole and Joel I am an unemployed mom who lost her job. Give me the thousands of $$$ you spend on pillows so I can feed my kids. Give me a break you spoiled rich brats(at least Nicole has she ever worked or just been given everything. I wish I was adopted by a star)

Hahahaha, so funny, I’m definitely on Joel’s side in this one, sorry Nicole! I’m glad Russell Brand was ready to be tamed by Marriage! Miranda Lambert looks great on The April Issue of Redbook’s Magazine!

I’m glad Serena Williams feels lucky to be Alive!
