    Was there really ever any doubt that Madonna would get what Madonna wanted?

    They say Madonna is sending a private jet to return Mercy to New York.

    I am willing to bet my life that Madonna spends only a few hours maybe even less with Mercy on her first day in New York.

    No way in hell is Madonna gonna cut short her six hour a day work out routine or three hour a day beauty routine for her latest prize.

    (Madonna’s suffers from the same syndrome as Octomom…trying to fill emotional void with babies she can fully control…just like those old men and women who collect fifty or sixty dogs or cats in their homes.)

    me, you don’t have to know her personally to know that is exactly how it will go down.

    Even your proclomation speak to it … “victory!”

    She won. That’s what matters to her.

    Is Malawi the only country in the world where children need parents? Why didn’t she adopt a child where it’s legal?
    Breaking laws is fun?
