Madonna & Sharon Stone at the “I am Because” premiere

Sharon Stone showed up to support Madonna at the premiere of her vanity project charity documentary I am, Because in Cannes. Madonna wore a questionable v-neck striped sequin gown with cut out shoulders and an oversize black vinyl belt. Her dress changed from black to white and the ends of the sleeves and skirt were cut in icicle-like strips. It looked like a figure skating outfit adapted for evening wear.

According to IMDB, I am, Because is “A look into the lives of Malawi’s 1 million plus orphans in the wake of the AIDS pandemic.” Madonna chronicles the start of her “Raising Malawai” organization in the film, which has faced criticism for promoting and possibly being a front for the Kabbalah cult that she supports. She also covers her discovery and adoption of half-orphan, David Banda, in the film.

In an interview with Ann Curry about the film last month, Madonna said “I got to a point where I thought ‘I have so much and it’s a great tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world a better place’”

When Curry asked Madonna how she responded to critics who would call her charity work a “fad or trend,” she answered “My reinventions are part of my evolution, and my growth as a person. There are aspects of it that are frivolous and there are aspects of it that are real.”

Interesting that Madonna’s films are getting more attention now than her husband’s, director Guy Ritchie, whose career has floundered since they married in 2000.

    I’m sorry, I can’t leave it alone. Every single Madge post, her hair screams at me and distracts me from having any coherent thought other than why, why, why can’t she get her roots done and her split ends chopped off?? All that money and attention on other parts of her body but her hair ALWAYS a distracting scraggy bird’s nest shitty mess.

    It’s good to see Madonna and Stone putting their differences aside to support a good cause. In the past they’ve both said some pretty bitchy things about each other.

    What’s the big deal about her roots? Its not like she’s trying to fool anybody that shes a natural blonde. Who cares? SJP used to go around regularly with brown roots–whats the delio?

    i actually think if you’re not a natural blonde, it doesn’t look that bad to have a little rootage showing…it gives a little depth to your hair.

    I love Madonna and probably personally paid for her ice skating costume with the granny shoes with all the Madonna music and crap I have bought for the past 25 years. however, I wish we could get back to the days when Madonna was a trendsetter. She is a trend follower now..start dressing yourself again it was far cooler and more interesting.

    poor madge … she’s so boring now.

    which 50 year old would you rather be?
    madonna or sharon?

    I think Sharon and Madge have bonded over their use of the same plastic surgeon.

    I don’t believe she has a genuinely philanthropical bone in her body. She’s simply jumping on a bandwagon she thinks enhances her appeal or credibility or something. Once upon a time she started trends, now she just follows them.

    I kind of like the new trend “Old woman never die out” –Madonna, Hillary Clinton, the cast from Sex and the City….

    They are strong fighters, scary but interesting, but scary majorly…but uh, interesting….but scary…

    I think she stole the hair right off an Olsen twin.

  12. Nan says:

    Madge looks not a day over 35! She looks great here. Thanks Madonna. Proof that age doesn’t matter.

  13. Jack Carter says:

    Madonna is musically talentless. Fact.
    Here’s some real talent…

    If Madonna wants to make this “world a better place” she should commit suicide or move to another planet.
