Madonna & David Say Goodbye to New York

Madonna looks composed as she tries to make her way through JFK airport with David Banda , 13-months on Saturday. They are returning home to London after a week in New York promoting her new concert special. Madonna is furious at the media for making her impending adoption of the boy “hell.”

“It was one f–ing thing after the next, everywhere we went. So the idea that people think I got a shortcut or an easy ride is absolutely ludicrous. I have never worked so hard for anything in my life, and I’ve never been given such a hard time. And my celebrity has worked against me in every way.”
“There’s a lot of Brits – reporters on the street – who’ve said, ‘Why don’t you adopt a kid from Britain?’ Or, ‘Why did you adopt a black child?’ So a lot of people’s hangups and ‘isms’ are sort of mixed into this, too. It’s just kind of a cocktail for disaster in terms of media perception.”
If you’re a famous person who’s trying to make a difference in the world, she adds, “you’d better be prepared to find yourself in the headquarters of hell.”

    I think Madonna is right and that the media has turned this into a circus. I am not a big fan of hers but this is sure to turn a lot of people away from adoption.

    Madonna is a world class whiner. Who is she to complain about the media. Madonna manipulated the media from day one. Now when she faces media scrutiny, she is upset. Well excuse me Madonna, who the hell do you think you are, a material girl living in the material world? Get a grip Madonna media whore, you are what you are, no more and no less. Sooner or later people will figure you out for what you really are, a cheap media whore.

    Here’s an idea, Madonna – stay AT HOME with your beautiful new baby and help him settle in instead of carting him around the states so you can do every talk show there is. All she had to do was have one press conference to let the public know how she feels about all this, but of course she had to take the route that gets her face on every TV show and paper in the damn world.

    I have to agree with you Jess:)

    That’s right Jess – stay at home for a bit and be a mom. Let him have some adjustment time. Poor kid must be terrified of all this change, the press, traveling….

    MR T and Jess absolutley. She would DIE without media coverage….She yearns for it. I mean let the poor boy get some damn sleep, some rest and adjust to his new surroundings rather trapsining him around the world. Business is always first for Ms. Thing. Celebs act like they are working two shifts in a coal mine. I mean give me a freaking break and get a reality check.

    She has gained tons of free publicity – everything is caculated; she saw what covers Brad and Angelina were getting and this was a conscious ploy..OK I’ll quiet down now LOL
