Meow. Look out folks! Just when we thought there would be private tea parties and how-to books from some of Hollywood’s most successful international mommies, the ‘my-way or the highway’ insults have started surfacing. Apparently, Angelina Jolie is none too happy with the way Madonna went about her adoption of a child from Malawi, calling it “illegal”. From the article,

“Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where he was born. It’s a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.” Jolie also commented that she was shocked Madonna would adopt the child with his father still alive and living nearby.

In some ways, I agree, but in a sense I think this type of criticism is a little harsh. This kid’s life is about to change in so many ways not potentially possible in Malawi. It’s a little strange that his father is still out and about, but he seems relatively happy to have given his son a chance at a different life. (Though the ulterior-motives factor could come into play here one day.)

Angelina was quick to offer some positives by commenting how Madonna has been treated in the press, “‘I have been horrified by the attacks she’s been subjected to. All that should count is the happiness of her little David.’

And rightly so. Though I suspect Madonna will approach the process a little more carefully next time.

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
