Madonna learns baby son’s African language

Comments

Madonna is learning to speak her adopted son’s native language.
The ‘Hung Up’ singer and her director husband Guy Ritchie have been taking lessons in Chichewa, which is spoken in the African country of Malawi where baby David Banda was born.
A source said: “Madonna and Guy use the few words they have learned – Mummy, Daddy, hello, my love and some others – every day.
“Madonna knows a Chichewa lullaby called ‘Gona Mana’ and has been working on a guitar piece to go along with it.”
The source added: “David is a very smart little chap who idolises his brother Rocco.”
Meanwhile, Madonna’s father-in-law has claimed that her desire to adopt another child is putting strain on her marriage to his son.
Guy’s father, John Ritchie, said: “They’ve had a difficult time. David is very beautiful and Guy is very good with him. But I don’t think he’d want to adopt again.
“They were both under an unbelievable amount of pressure because of all the press surrounding David’s adoption. It has caused tension and been deeply upsetting.”
It has been suggested that Madonna plans to give a home to a baby girl also from Malawi.

Madonna’s “Confession” Tour DVD To Be Released

Comments

Madonna isn’t a force to be reckoned with and she will soon make her voice heard on a new concert DVD – without any censorship.
Madonna’s long-awaited music DVD of her “Confessions” tour, which aired on NBC right before Thanksgiving, is set to be released on January 31. The DVD and CD combo pack will also include special behind-the-scenes footage.
Filming for her sold out 25-city “Confessions” tour was taped at London’s Wembley Arena and will include songs from her latest hit album “Confessions On A Dance Floor” and footage that was cut from the NBC broadcast.
The DVD will feature an uncut version of “Live To Tell” and four songs that never aired on television. The total running time for the concert footage is an estimated two hours.
The CD will include top tracks “Jump,” “Hung Up,” “Sorry,” “I Love New York” and familiar classics “Like A Virgin” and “Lucky Star.”
The Orange Country Register describes the new DVD as a mix of Cirque du Soleil and dance extravaganza, saying “The pop spectacle of the year – a politically charged combination of Cirque du Soleil, performance-art commentary and dance-party explosion that more or less sums up everything that she has been striving to say and show this decade… it’s quite possible the best production she has ever concocted.”
“Confessions On Dance Floor” debuted at No.1 on the U.S. charts and has sold over 8 million copies worldwide.

Interview with Christopher Ciccone

6 Comments

Christopher Ciccone, Madonna’s brother, manages a good amount of grace about his famous sister. Until you go a tad too far with the Madge questions.
Then he’ll straight cut you off. You were waiting to see how long it would take him. And to his credit, he almost gets through his entire egg white omelet at Lincoln Road’s Balans before he checks you in that manly-man voice of his.

“Are we doing a Madonna interview now?”
Actually, there’s nothing you’re burning to know about Madonna. You’re all for her finally having a private life. You were more commenting on how grown up she seems these days.

But who can blame Ciccone, really? Here’s a guy who works hard at being defined by something beyond that unavoidable tag. Yeah, he’s Madonna’s brother. He’s also a painter, an interior designer, a clothing designer, a concert tour director, a music biz manager, a filmmaker, a writer.

But it always comes back to the Madonna thing.

So, what’s best about that?

“The best thing about being Madonna’s brother is that it gave me the access to being creative. I got to design all her houses. I got to work with her on a lot of projects. Like the Girlie Show tour, which I designed and directed. As far as I’m concerned, it was a peak for both of us creatively.”
