Madonna Tells all to Oprah

Madonna appeared on Oprah today where she spoke in depth about her love for David and how he's fitting in so well with her family. She also spoke about the challenges of adopting the young boy. To see a clip of the show, click here. Madonna also said that Brad and Angelina had nothing to do with her adoption decision, insisting she's never even met Angelina. Here's more:

"David is amazing," the 48-year-old pop star said. "What really surprises me is how great my children are with him and how he's transitioned so easily from living in Africa in an orphanage to living in our house."

The 30-minute interview with Winfrey was the first time Madonna had spoken on TV about the adoption, which has been challenged by human rights groups that allege the singer used her fame and fortune to flout Malawai's adoption laws.

"If only my wealth and my position could have made things go faster," she said. "I assure you it doesn't matter who you are and how much money you have, nothing goes fast in Africa."

maybe she wants to adopt because she wants a baby but can't get pregnant anymore?

Jk- you always have a great perspective on things! Pad- as much as I usually agree with you, I am not a Madge fan ( well, anymore, I wore rubber bracelets and a fake mole when I was in 6th grade), I have to say that corruption is everywhere, people BUY whatever they want, Goerge Bush bought his presidency, but this is the type of corruption that is going to have a good outcome, a child that had a slim chance od even living is going to , hopefully, have a very forfilling life!

I have issues with the whole adoption but I'll shut up now, lest I piss off all the Madonna fans.

I still wonder if Angelina and other celebs never adopted would the thought even ever cross Madonna's mind? I mean.. why NOW is she doing it? Anyway, I hope everything works out for the better and wherever David ends up he wont be traumatized about it all.

I DONT THINK THE BOYS FATHER WAS CONFUSED WHEN HE CLEARLY TOLD THE MEDIA THAT HE WAS OK WITH MADONNA ADOPTING DAVID...BUT I DO THINK SHE GOT BETTER TREATMENT OR THE PROCESS WENT ALONG FAST BECAUSE SHE IS RICH AND FAMOUS BUT WHO CARES SHE IS GIVING A LIL BOY A BETTER FUTURE

I don't understand why AJ has to be brought into all of this. Mia Farrow adopted like 6 kids years ago! But I hope everything works out in the child's best interest. & of course Lola & Rocco like him, 1yr olds are fun to play with!!

i am so happy for madonna and her new little boy. he will be so loved... i think he will definately return to africa in his late teens and early twenties. he will want to meet his biological father and get in touch with his heritage. i hope he does great things.
