Madonna on the Hunt for Indian Baby?

January 8th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Madonna and hubby, Guy Ritchie, recently paid a visit to a slum in Mumbai and I’m not exactly sure why, but I’m guessing it has to do with bringing awareness of the area’s poverty to schmucks like me, who would only be writing about it if Madonna were visiting. The couple hung out for almost an hour, mixing and mingling with the residents of the township. Accompanying the celebrity couple was author, Gregory David Roberts, who lived in the slum during the early 80s and subsequently wrote a book about his experiences. I know that she’s being philanthropic and the necklaces she’s wearing were probably purchased during her trip from some of the locals, but I can’t help feeling that she looks like a blind, albino Mr. T in that get-up.

More photos of Madonna and Guy in Mumbai are after the jump.

  1. blah

    I don’t want to say that Madonna is doing this for publicity, but there’s something that is just a little bit desperate in this photo.

  2. Brionity

    So full of herself as usual, just needs to go and see what the rest of the world lives like. Then she scampers back to London to try to buy the rest of the city block that she partials owns, while she has a driver ferry her around in an SUV.

    Then shouts I’m green! I’m green!

    Leave us alone. That goes for you too, Pope-rah.

  3. cranky granny
