Madonna hearing delayed, defends Britney

As if any of you actually cared, but a ruling whether Madonna was allowed to keep her adopted Malawian son David Banda was delayed yet again Thursday.

Tbdmadonna051608 A judge's decision was supposed to come down, but lawyer Alan Chinula said the proceedings were delayed after a local human rights group argued about "shortcomings" in the nation's adoption laws, the AP reports. Chinula said the group wasn't challenging Madge's adoption.

Meanwhile, in a subject closer to our sphere of influence, Madonna was telling the BBC that people shouldn't blame Britney Spears for being the way she is.

"I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that she was never allowed to have a childhood," Madonna told said in an interview. “She didn't get to grow up and make mistakes privately and try things out and just be a kid and be innocent. She's been watched, judged and been under a microscope since she's been a teenager. It's hard to evolve that way."

We're willing to go out on a limb and say Madge knows what she's saying when she's talking about modifying one's image. Tha must be why she's also planning to open a girl's school in Malawi. Oh come on, Oprah Winfrey tried that in South Africa and look what happened!
