Madonna, rapping in "American Life":
I got a lawyer and a manager
An agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant
And a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler
And a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist
Do you think I'm satisfied?
Obviously this was the problem. Three nannies, five bodyguards - but only one lawyer. Perhaps if Madonna had handled her staffing properly, there would have been someone to check up on the adoption laws in Malawi before this circus ensued:
Malawian law prohibits adoptions by non-residents, but officials are granting an exemption or waiver to Madonna, who has confirmed her intention to adopt the child, who lives in a dilapidated orphanage near the Zambian border.

Eye of the Child, the leading child advocacy group in Malawi, said the request for an injunction would be filed in a magistrates court in the capital Lilongwe on behalf of about five dozen non-governmental organisations.

Oh Madge.

Just toeing the party line, Tim.

(Actually no, I love it to bits. The clip however is a disappointment. What's with the giant girlband Beyonce has invited over to help ease the pain? This song is supposed to be bittersweet people. No rocking out allowed.)
