Fox is reporting that even though Madonna may be performing at tomorrow night’s Live Earth show, she has hypocritically invested about $2.7 million dollars in companies that are creating the destruction that Live Earth is trying to raise awareness about (mainly big corporate polluters).

While I do think we should encourage people to think through the impact of all of their activities, (and yes, this is bad news) I can’t help but be concerned that we are harping on someone who is at least trying to make a difference. The truth is, I’d be surprised if she even knows how her money is being invested. (My instincts tell me that celebrities probably don’t manage their own money.) She’s so busy with her music, husband and children, that I have a feeling this might be news to her too…

That said, this will probably make her change her ways, not to mention raise awareness about the various and complex ways in which we all need to consider how we live a green life, through and through.

Madonna is learning her lesson is an”ouch” PR kind of way, but I still applaud her for taking part in Live Earth (She’s doing more than some musicians.) Lesson to all of us: we should put our money where our mouth is…

    This is not new for the material girl… When she was the pitch person for Rock The Vote… wrapped in the American flag… cough… she didn’t even make it to the polls that year, not even an absente ballot… So as I say, not as I do… that’s my girl.
