Pop star Madonna is to be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey about her planned adoption of a one-year-old from Malawi.
She will appear on the US television chat show on Wednesday following claims by baby David's father that he never meant to give away his son for good. The boy's father says he is now having regrets about the adoption.
It would be the first time that the singer had given her side of the story, a spokeswoman for the programme said.
what does it MATTER what the woman's "side of the story" is? It's not a bloody marital dispute, for crying out loud... Hasn't ANYONE explained to this woman that genetic parents have a lengthy period of time post-adoption to change their minds? Does she not understand what the term 'interim adoption' means?
Or did she just hope that the child's father, being illiterate, wouldn't actually work out what the hell was going on? Clearly, his was a vain (but heartbreakingly sincere) hope that he was providing his son with a much-needed rich benefactor rather than giving him up permanently to the highest bidder.
I feel queasy.
