Madonna Takes her Sob Story to the Press

It seems to me ever since Madonna had been denied custody of little Mercy James from Malawi, that she has been doing everything she could to get Mercy into the States, where according to Madonna, Mercy belongs. She took the usual steps we would expect such as putting in an appeal with the Supreme Court but she has also gone one step further and has stooped to new, low, low levels of writing down her entire sob story and taking it to the press. What’s more is that she’s had this story run alongside a picture that has clearly been doctored so that Madonna looks like some sort of saint while Mercy lay comfortably and soundly in her arms. All of this in the hopes that the Malawian government would what? Realize that she looks beautiful enough to be a mother and so she should be allowed to take Mercy home? From Gossip Rocks,

“In this picture, released to media around the world tonight, we see an intimate snapshot of Madonna as matriarch, a carefully constructed image of a casually dressed mother with the baby she wants to adopt, sleeping soundly and held warmly to her bosom.

It was taken during Madonna’s recent trip to the African country and appears to have been airbrushed to make the popstar appear even more angelic and blemish-free and has also had the colour bleached out and had sepia tones added in an apparent attempt to make it more dramatic.
To go with it, the singer also made the unusual move of writing emotionally in a personal email sent by her to Malawi’s Nation newspaper.
She wrote: ‘I want to provide Mercy with a home, a loving family environment and the best education and healthcare possible. And it’s my hope that she, like David, will one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country.
‘Though I have been advised that I cannot publicly discuss the pending appeal regarding my desire to adopt Mercy, I do want to say how much I appreciate the level of support that I have received from the people of Malawi and my friends around the world.'”

I don’t understand why she would talk about how she’s not allowed to discuss it publicly and then put the story to print. Not to mention this ridiculous picture that makes her out to be some kind of creepy angel-mother. I haven’t heard anything yet about Madonna’s plans to move to Malawi for 18-24 months, which was the reason the adoption was denied in the first place which is interesting for someone who wants to be allowed to adopt so badly. She also talks about how she wants her adopted children to one day come back and help their home country but her most recent trip to pick up Mercy was the first time David had been back since she adopted him. Really, who does this woman think she’s kidding?
