Who better to provide a few tasty morsels of criticism of Madonna’s “adoption” of an African child than Sharon Osbourne? According to The Sun, the X Factor judge likened the Material Girl’s acquisition of David Banda to “getting a Louis Vuitton handbag,” adding: “It is a crock of s***. If she wants to help the kid she should have got the father a little trade going, a fruit stand or something like that and built him a mud hut….she bought a baby for God’s sake.”
Police in Wandsworth have other ideas for Madonna, the paper reports elsewhere. During a meeting on street crime, officers discussed an “Adopt a Robber” scheme where police could target designated suspects. Veteran DI McFarlane then made the quip saying it would be a good idea to get Madonna to adopt them all.
