Remember all the hoopla about Madonna swinging on over to Malawi to get a kid? Well, apparently it amounted to nothing but a big pile of hooey. According to Madge’s faithful publicist, Liz Rosenberg, “She has not adopted a bady…” Well, that solves that. But, we can’t help but wonder, what did Malawian governmental mouth-piece Adrina Michiela mean when she said, “She asked us to identify boys only, which we have done after visiting four orphanages in Lilongwe.” Maybe she meant, “I’m lying. This is not true. Lies are coming out of my mouth. Why are you listening? I’m lying.” But, then again, probably not.
Rosenberg, meanwhile, thinks all the lies are swell, and thinks her boss does, too:
I think that anything that brings attention to the country is fine with her, even if it’s information that’s not correct… She wants people to pay attention to Malawi and to the one million children who don’t have parents and don’t have care there.
Uh-huh. It seems to us that Rosenberg is saying she and Madonnna had Michiela make up an adoption story so that they could say it’s a lie, thus bringing even more attention to the plight of children in Malawi. Plus, as an added bonus, she can drive the message home by making the government look like a bunch of fibbers. Brilliant!
