Madonna causing commotion in Malawi
Pop star Madonna is causing controversy in Malawi just days after she retuned from a goodwill trip to the nation.
Apparently the singer is in a bitter feud with the government over accusations that she demanded VIP treatment while visiting last week.
Madonna asked to meet the president of the nation and she believed that Malawi “should have abandoned everything and … rolled out a red carpet and blasted the 21-gun salute in her honor,” the Malawi government said in a statement.
Madonna responded to the allegations in a statement saying, “I’m saddened that Malawi’s President Joyce Banda has chosen to release lies about what we’ve accomplished, my intentions, how I personally conducted myself while visiting Malawi and other untruths.”
“I have no intentions of being distracted by these ridiculous allegations. I came to Malawi seven years ago with honorable intentions. I returned earlier this month to view the new schools we built.”
