Angelina Jolie is buying a whole country

Proving that her charity knows no bounds and is on a different level entirely than the lame attempts by her boyfriend to save the world, Angelina Jolie is planning to buy a country in Dubai and set it up for African refugees. The Bosh reports:

The ‘Tomb Raider’ star, who is currently pregnant with boyfriend Brad Pitt’s child, is buying Richard Branson’s man-made version of Ethiopia, located in Dubai. The British business tycoon is having 300 country-shaped luxury island developments built, to form a map of the world.

And the 55-year-old entrepreneur is selling parts of the ‘world’ to anyone rich enough to afford them. The 30-year-old actress, who is due to give birth early in May, is reportedly planning to turn her new purchase into a fair-trade paradise for hundreds of Africans.

A source said: “Angelina has been obsessed with Ethiopia ever since she adopted her second child Zahara from there. Her friends are very jealous of her purchase.”

Jolie will also take out an ad in USA Today next week begging for the US to intervene in the long-standing genocide in The Sudan:

Jolie tells People magazine, “I chose to take out this ad because when Congress returns from recess (24APR06), they have the chance to fully fund peacekeepers in Darfur. “The situation in Darfur has been going on far too long. It’s only getting worse. “Reports are pouring in about mass atrocities including children getting raped and killed. “If people are aware of the facts, I believe many will be driven to action.”

The US could have stepped in and stopped the violence in the Sudan long ago, but the neocons decided they wanted the oil in Iraq and choose to invent a genocide over there. Saddam Hussein may have gassed Kurds in the 80s, but US news outlets downplayed the event at the time. Now an actual genocide has been happening in The Sudan for about three years and no one is doing a thing about it. Saving hundreds of thousands of lives would have cost a fraction of the total of the Iraq war, but no one has given it any attention. Ironically that’s why we pay attention to celebrities. It’s easier than dealing with the tragedy and hypocrisy of the real world, and we’re just as guilty as anyone.

Brad is gearing up his own philanthropic efforts. He will join “environmental group Global Green USA to sponsor a competition that will choose architects to rebuild parts of hurricane-devastated New Orleans.”

    How on earth will she find time to have a baby, marry Brad, buy a country, and if the rumours are true make Tomb Raider 3!!!

    I know, right? Either some of these stories are false, or she is in way over her head.

  3. CAZB says:

    Well, looks like she’s turned Brad into her lapdog anyway, him with all his ‘Goodwill’ crap, probably doesn’t understand what he’s doing anyway.

  4. celebitchy says:

    He is such a follower. I think she’s tired of him and won’t put up with him for much longer. She like the crazy take-charge type.
