Madonna Continues to Talk About Adoption

Madonna says that adopting David has been more challenging than she previously thought. She sat down with Letterman last night and said that she'd really tried to go down all the right avenues during David's adoption process. But it hasn't been as easy as all that. Here's highlights:

  • "We did everything by the book, and everything was kosher in terms of legal," she said. "But it brought a lot of attention to a country just coming to terms with the overwhelming number of orphans that are there. There are over a million orphans there ... and in my opinion the laws need to change because these children need to be rescued."
  • As for how David is adjusting to being with the family: "He's a champion tantrum thrower," says Madonna, who joked with Letterman about having the same first name as her son. "By the way, do you like his name? King David, we call him."
  • The singer also weighed in on another major topic of conversation recently – underpants. "I've been hearing these stories – it's dreadful," she said referring to photos widely circulated of Britney Spears without underwear. "I love underpants."
  • Joked Letterman: "I remember one night here a long time ago, you brought me a pair of them, and I still have them." Madonna then quipped: "Maybe you could send them to Britney."

Madonna always gives great interviews. She can talk seriously and then turn things around with some fun Britney humor. For more pics just

meh, I'm so sick of hearing about this, I'm pretty sure they're going to let her keep the kid... she is rich and able to provide a good life for him. Madonna's kinda boring now, I liked her better before she turned into a "proper british lady" with the fake accent and all. boooerns!

I think she takes herself way too seriously and assumes the world revolves around her. I like how Dave didn't know the gender of her kids and she was so offended.

The british aren't fans of whitening teeth i see. Whatevs. She needs to stop these interviews. The more she tries to justify it, the guiltier she sounds. If it's by the books, say it once and end it at that. Don't go on a tour to justify your adoption. I was 100% supportive of her adoption at first when she did Oprah, but now, I'm 50:50 and it's really nobody's fault but hers. The more people attack her actually, the more I defend her. “I can’t stand those articles where people spill their life story. After a while I feel like I know more about them than their best friend does — and that’s weird. It’s better when you don’t know everything.” -Scarlett Johannson

I think she likes the roots showing. I don't think it's horrible.

Root alert! With all that $$ you'd think she could get a touch up, especially before going on Letterman!

I loved her interview on "Today". She called herself circa 85 "precocious and naive". And she said she and Spears aren't friends and never really were, just were work-friends when they did that video together and the MTV Awards kiss. I wouldn't be trying to associate myself with Spears, either, probably, if I was Madonna.
