The Attack of Madonnarama!!!

The Attack of Madonnarama!!!

Here are some great snippets of Madonna‘s feature in the May 2008 issue Vanity Fair:

On adopting her son David from Malawai: People always ask me why I chose Malawi. And I tell them, I didn’t. It chose me. I got a phone call from a woman named Victoria Keelan. She was born and raised in Malawi. She told me that there were over one million children orphaned by aids. She said there weren’t enough orphanages. And that the children were everywhere. Living on the streets. Sleeping under bridges. Hiding in abandoned buildings. Being abducted, kidnapped, raped. She said it was a state of emergency. She sounded exhausted and on the verge of tears. I asked her how I could help. She said, You’re a person with resources. People pay attention to what you say and do. I felt embarrassed. I told her I didn’t know where Malawi was. She told me to look it up on a map, and then she hung up on me. I decided to investigate, and I ended up finding out much more than I bargained for, about Malawi, about myself, about humanity.”

On the birth of her daughter Lourdes putting her on the road that ended in Malawi: “If you have children, you know you’re responsible for somebody,” she explained. “You realize you are being imitated; your belief systems and priorities have a direct influence on these children, who are like flowers in a garden. So you start to second-guess everything you value, and the suffering of other children becomes much more intolerable.”

On her favorite children’s books: “Winnie the Pooh, Pippi Longstocking, Horrid Henry.”

    madonna sucks my ball

  • annoymous

    I simply find it hard to like her…she is neither pretty…neither good at singing nor acting…

  • Paulie

    Madonna is the Queen of Pop.

    Mariah is the Queen of Popeys.

  • celebaddict

    I am shocked that she didn’t know where Malawi was, but impressed that she was honest about not knowing where it was!

    Like her or loathe her, Madonna is one hell of a successful businesswomen.

    Madge you biatch I LOVE you, she is 50 years old and still rocking our world

  • Maria (Shorty)

    I don’t care for Madonna, but I do like her responses — if they were hers or had them written for her. Not alot of people know where Malawi is – why would she? Honest answer and appreciate that she didn’t come up with , “Well I’m very into what’s happening in the world”.

  • UGH


  • superboy

    I like the use of her body as an artistic expression. She looks great at 50s

  • lennie

    artistic expression??? she looks like every rich women in London: slender and thin, super lifted face, big big eyes and blonde of course. she’s boring

  • Buzzkut

    Does she even read what she says? I mean is she sure she is talking about herself, growing children like flowers and protecting them from the vile cruel world, ..not knowing she is a chronically immoral pervert with antisocial behavior? It’s very queer and .Factor1: Aggressive narcissism

    Glibness / superficial charm
    Grandiose sense of self-worth
    Pathological lying
    Cunning / manipulative
    Lack of remorse or guilt
    Callous / lack of empathy
    Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
    Promiscuous sexual behavior
    Factor2: Socially deviant lifestyle

    Need for stimulation / proneness to boredom
    Parasitic lifestyle
    Poor behavioral control
    Lack of realistic, long-term goals
    Juvenile delinquency
    Early behavior problems
    Many short-term marital relationships
    Revocation of conditional release
    Traits not correlated with either factor

    Many short-term marital relationships
    Promiscuous sexual behavior
    Criminal versatility

    I always feel sorry for people who say they didn’t care about the world or other children until they became parents. What kind of person doesn’t care about the fate of the world or children unless they have a personal stake in the future?

  • pete

    i don’t care about the world yet. ;)
