Madonna Responds to Malawi Government Cricism

Madonna Responds to Malawi Government Cricism

Madonna and her 16-year-old daughter Lourdes leave the Kabbalah Centre separately on Saturday (April 14) in New York City.

The 54-year-old entertainer recently responded to the Malawi government’s criticism of her recent visit.

“I’m saddened that Malawi’s President Joyce Banda has chosen to release lies about what we’ve accomplished, my intentions, how I personally conducted myself while visiting Malawi and other untruths,” Madonna said in her statement.

“I have no intentions of being distracted by these ridiculous allegations. I came to Malawi seven years ago with honorable intentions. I returned earlier this month to view the new schools we built. I did not ever ask or demand special treatment at the airport or elsewhere during my visit,” Madonna added.

You can say a LOT things about her.
But her charity is genuin not for fame
Like others..

@sara: indeed; to me, as a person, she comes off really fake and manipulative, but she seems genuinely dedicated to the whole Malawi thing.

# 3

From what I have learned, she has never built a school there. That is why the government is upset.

Her daughter is ugly and looks like a Yeti.

Regardless of what the truth is–these two women, the president and Madonna, are engaging in a childish exchange that is ultimately only harmful to the cause.

Madonna should urgently consider retirement.

SHE HAS BEEN WORKING SO HARD !!!!!

Madonna has never had a kind word for anyone in her life or done a kind deed without expecting something in return. She’s all about money, power, and greed. Lady Gaga’s real and genuine about her charity and she and her mother have helped millions already. All the power to her! She expects the public to benefit from her charitable deeds not herself.

Madonna refuses to help her homeless brother for goodness sakes. Why would she help someone else? That just proves how evil she truly is.

Yup Madonna is a fake and gaga is real. Please help save Malawi

..but maybe her conceited staff did, she should check her own ‘people’, those kinds of people tend to act bigger than the star they represent and then still show a fake humble face to the star itself, so Madonna wouldn’t know what ‘biiiotches’ work for her, begin staff check with the oldest staff members…

Must be a slow news day. This article is OLD NEWS… and Radar & E! have intentionally “sold” it to make it look like it’s a controversy brewing. Madonna’s Raising Malawi announced these changes in 2010-11 and the re-structuring was mutually agreed upon by Raising Malawi and the Kabbalah Centre International. There wasn’t a “split”… it was a restructuring as Raising Malawi, as an organization, matured. It started off as a project of the Kabbalah Centre, but outgrew that role and became an independent organization in its own right. You can see Raising Malawi posted about this on their own blog back in 2011 at http://www.raisingmalawi.org/blog/entry/statement-on-raising-malawi/ COME ON Just Jared… how about a story that is actually newsworthy?
