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.
