Madonna on Oprah



Mama-donna kicked ass on Oprah, albeit nervously and with patrician accent in place. It was interesting to hear how many of the rumors are bullshit: she's never met Angelina Jolie, she's never considered adopting a child from LA, and the child had been very sick (malaria, TB and pneumonia!) in an orphanage for 13 months with no visits from his family. I'm not sure how anyone goes to visit orphans in Africa and doesn't leave with one.

Not everyone will have paprazzi at their door, but she is right that people will now be self-concious about doing this because pop culture has branded it the same as getting a Vuitton bag: Oh, are you doing that to be like Brangelina? Yeah, right. because everybody wants to take on a sickly child for 20 years just for kicks and status. Oy. Chalk it up to negative human nature.

Hopefully this is put on YouTube... I missed taping/TiVo-ing it, alas....

Not yet, but it will be - they talked for about 20 mins or more though.

Completely agree with you Xo. It's really quite nice to see not everyone thinks Madge acted like a vuulture and did this purely for publicity.
