Madonna: ‘You caught me. I’m trying to adopt.’

Madonna has confirmed her plans to adopt a four-year-old Malawian girl, Mercy, and wants you to know she’s going through the process just like everybody else. And apparently that process includes charging a million dollar school to your gold card then bouncing with a new kid in five days. Who knew? The AP report:

Madonna said Tuesday that she was following standard procedures in her adoption of a Malawian girl, her first response to accusations that that she is using her fame to speed the process.
The pop superstar also took her 3-year-old adopted son, David, to visit the orphanage in Mchinji, a village near the Zambian border, where he once lived. She brought him Monday to meet his biological father for the first time since he left Malawi in 2006.

Wow, so she is trying to adopt. Because we would’ve never figured that one out on our own. Thanks, Sergeant DeathFace of the Obvious Platoon!
