(CelebNMusic247-News) Madonna Harshly Criticized By Malawian Government
Madonna got her news during her last trip to Malawi have to line up with ordinary passengers and be frisked by airport security.
Today (April 10th) Malawi issued a scathing critique of pop diva Madonna, accusing her of exaggerating her contributions to the southern African country and unreasonably demanding special treatment during her tour there last week.
Madonna has a long history with the country, which she first visited in 2006. She adopted two children from Malawi and runs several projects there. She was granted VIP treatment during previous visits, including when she last jetted into the country on April 1. But Madonna apparently was surprised when she learned upon leaving Malawi that that was no longer the case, and that she and her travelling party would have to line up with ordinary passengers and be frisked by airport security.
The pop star denied the accusations.
In fact, Madonna’s spokesman suggested they were prompted by the recent removal of the president’s sister as head of Madonna’s humanitarian organization.
Malawian government released a strong statement saying Madonna tried to buy her way into the hearts of the people and the country of Malawi.
The statement reads:
“Granted, Madonna is a famed international musician. But that does not impose an injunction of obligation on any government under whose territory Madonna finds herself, including Malawi, to give her state treatment. Such treatment, even if she deserved it, is discretionary not obligatory.”
The presidential statement also questioned Madonna’s intentions behind her humanitarian efforts in Malawi, adding:
“Kindness, as far as its ordinary meaning is concerned, is free and anonymous. If it can’t be free and silent, it is not kindness; it is something else. Blackmail is the closest it becomes.”
