For Tax Day, Madge goes back to her little deduction-wannabe's orphanage



Madge Still insisting she wasn't there to pick up another bundle of joy, Madonna on Tuesday returned to the orphanage in Malawi where she found little David Banda. With 9-year-old daughter Lourdes in tow, the queen of pop videotaped the children singing and reciting lessons at the church-run Home of Hope orphanage in Mchinji, a village near the Zambian border. The AP reports she's there to oversee her charity projects, which apparently include grading the road to the orphanage and new uniforms for the kiddies. Madonna's security and police tried to stop journalists and onlookers from entering the orphanage compound. But villagers, mainly children, clamored over the waist-high wall and rushed in, no doubt in an effort to be the next one spirited away to a life of luxury in London.

Newmadge Update: Reuters adds a little spice to the mix by saying a ring of teenagers stopped those blood-sucking journos and paparazzi from covering the meeting between David and his daddy, Yohane Banda, by throwing stones at the would-be scribes. My, what a show of solidarity! [Photo: AP]
