Oh Yeah, and One More Thing...


Is there any way we can declare an Amber Alert each time one of these celebrities kidnaps a kid from Africa.

Only somebody as painfully self-obsessed as Madonna would believe that the life she can offer a child -- any child -- is somehow better than the care that same child could receive somewhere else.

Anyone who argues that Madonna's act was unselfish: you heard all about her doing it, didn't you? And has sincerity ever been in her repertoire? When was the last time she didn't do something for the sake of cheap publicity?

For the record, if the question comes down to what's best for a child: living in a hole, eating a spoonful of Red Cross grain every two days and probably dying of AIDS by the age of four -- or being raised by Madonna...

I think the answer is obvious.

Weren't you supposed to be taking a "blog break?" Does being in love with the sound of your own virtual voice qualify as being self-obsessed?

Hmmm?

For some reason, I just can't get enough of Madonna's seasonal attempts to appear relevant. I'm looking forward to the 2008 season premiere of Saturday Night Live, where I'm assuming she'll make a "surprise" visit where she blows both party's presidential candidates during the opening monologue. Almost as entertaining are her constant attempts to reinvent herself. I believe next week she plans to be a Pentecostal ska boy band.

I dnot know which would be worse, living as a child from Africa adopted by Madonna or working as a a data entry specialist under Mark Foley ( o_O ).
Personaly, i think celebs take the ignorance and apathy approach a bit too often, but then again they are just following the example of the elected officals.( notice I said "the" and not "our" )
