I was loving me some Oprah today.
1. Madonna. You just have to love the fact that this woman has kept this faux-English accent for years. Love it. The woman is committed if nothing else. And I love, love, love Madonna. I do. But isn't the adoption controversy old news and just a tad bit too much. I don't know where to go with it. First the dad was all for her getting the child. Then the activists got involved and pointed fingers, blah blah. Then the dad is going against what he originally said. What the heck is happening here? More importantly, who cares? She wants to adopt, let her. And I am just about sick of people comparing and saying that she should adopt an American child because there are so many unwanted American kids up for adoption.
I have to get political for a second with that one.
American adoptees have ten times a better life than a child, whose life expectancy is only to the age of 14 in poverty Africa. And that's a healthy African child I'm speaking of. Yes, I know the foster system here sucks. But we have a government that supports that child. There, they don't.
And on another note, how freaking smart are they? Bringing attention to something that most people had no idea existed. I'm on team Jolie (toodles, Aniston lovers) and I think the woman is genius. Spending all that time in Africa, fully knowing that the media and papparazzi would follow and bring exposure to all of that happening over there? Each celeb that has followed suit, go them. Adopt, away. That's all I have to say about that.
But back to Madonna and her point on Oprah.
She flat out stated that you'd think the fact that she is famous would get her through all this red tape crap.
2. Dixie Chicks.
They look good. And can we discuss the shoes? And Natalie's outfit? Super-duper cute to the tenth power! I heard less than half the interview because they were too cute with themselves. But I was loving the fact that Natalie will still stay strongly by her words and has no regret.
Because I hate when people say what they mean and then take it all back due to the unpopular opinion.
And why isn't their documentary showing in Dallas? WHY?
The funniest clip Oprah aired was when the security guard was explaining to each Chick the death threat for that nights performance and what they were doing about it at the entrances to the venue. The main security guy showed them all the picture of the 'threat-maker'. Natalie's response was:
WAIT FOR IT.
I wish everyday was Madonna and Dixie Chicks on Oprah. If for anything, the shoes!
