In case you didn’t see Madonna with her ridiculous English accent (I’m sorry, isn’t she from Detroit?!) on Oprah last week, you can catch her in an interview airing Wednesday and Thursday on NBC’s The Today Show. Madge sits down with Meredith Viera and will talk in detail about the controversy surrounding the adoption of David, her 1-year-old son from Malawi, her recent concert tour, and the continued scrutiny over her religious beliefs.
She tells Mer that she doesn’t regret her decision to adopt David and believes that the controversy that has followed the adoption is just the result of uneducated people jumping to conclusions which forces the story to then take on a life of it’s own.
Madonna shares her side of the baby daddy drama. She claims that when they were in court she offered to help David’s father financially to raise David instead of going through with her adoption, but he turned it down. Madonna says this was a decision she couldn’t really understand, but she saw it as a sign.
“I don't want to judge him. And I don't know his life. And, you know, I believe he remarried and had moved to another village and was kind of getting on with his life. And I think he truly felt in his heart of hearts that-- and-- and-- and who knows if he was telling me the truth, that he would have a better life with me. So, when he said no, that was my, you know, my sign that-- that, you know, it was my responsibility to look after him."
I can’t wait to hear Madonna say “heart of hearts” in her English accent.
