The Daily News' Laura Schreffler spent some time on the phone with Africa this week, and managed to find the one Malawian bureaucrat who is not thrilled to have Madonna's fame and aid directed that country's way. Recently there have been reports that the Material Mom might adopt another baby to add to her brood (and to no doubt irritate young David Banda, who probably assumed that for at least a couple of years, he was going to be the only ethnic baby in the house not having sex with Madonna). But the Malawi official who got on the phone with the News says "don't count your African orphans before they hatch":
"Our official policy is that we do not encourage our children to be sent into broken homes," said a senior official from Malawi's Ministry of Women and Child Welfare Development, noting her split from hubby Guy Ritchie ... "The news she is linked to another woman's husband and a young man less than half her age makes us question her morals."
Wait. The fact that she got a perfectly legal and amicable divorce and started dating new people is morally questionable? Not the fact that she posed for and published her own hard-core porn book called Sex, was briefly a lesbian, made a music video where she hooked up with Jesus, and generally made millions for decades by selling smut? That didn't stop Malawi from handing over a baby, but a couple of months of misguidedly humping a big orange baseball player in private did?
