I saw this yesterday:

MADONNA “set her heart� on adopting Malawian tot Grace after watching video footage of her playing in an orphanage.She fell for the smiling three-year-old as she viewed a documentary about a £2million day care home she is funding for orphans in the impoverished African country.

And it reminded me of one of the funniest things I’ve ever read (Fall ’06), here:

Actor/director Vincent Gallo has laughed off reports he’s dating an underage girl, insisting it’s his “humanitarian duty” to befriend the sexy teen.

“The Brown Bunny” star, 45, has been romantically linked to Los Angeles socialite Cory Kennedy, with the 16-year-old boasting of their close relationship on her blog. In it she hails Gallo as a “keeper” and posts photos of the pair together.

However, the actor stresses their relationship isn’t sexual but jokes he’s merely following Madonna’s example by looking after the teen.

He tells Page Six, “With the psychotic, middle-aged Madonna out there on the loose buying up all the stolen Negro babies in Africa, I felt it my social and humanitarian duty to take in any young, beautiful and sexy orphaned Jew teens running wild in Beverly Hills.

I don’t know if it is the funny turns of phrase or the indictment of the “progressive” version of White Man’s Burden that makes me love that part about Madonna and “Negro babies” so much, but I do love it.  The thought of wealthy white women with nannies scooping up all of the downtrodden dark people of the world makes me loath famous people and sets my mind adrift, thinking about what makes someone adopt a child because it’s the “cool thing to do”.

I’m somehow laughing and crying at the same time.

  1. i don’t know why madonna et al won’t just admit that they want to buy a baby, so they’re going to do just that. if they really cared so much for the plight of those kids, they could just give the thousands of dollars in adoption and transportation fees to those communities so those kids could stay with their families.
