Madonna rejects African wine; Africa rejects Madonna’s motherhood

Madonna rejects African wine; Africa rejects Madonna’s motherhood.

Madonna’s attempt to adopt a Malawa baby was unsuccessful. South Africa’s ability to please Madonna’s wine preferences were unsuccessful. Guess it all evens out.

According to ParentDish: “She travels exclusively by private jet with a large entourage that includes Israeli bodyguards, a trainer, and her treadmill (yes, she has that flown in). She also has French wine flown to the luxury lodge she rents out – apparently the South African wines they serve are not to her liking.”

More specifically, according to the Daily Mail: “In the rural areas, women walk miles each day to collect water; back in the luxury lodge which she has hired out in its entirety for the week.

Madonna, in contrast, has been enjoying a glass of two of fine claret in the evenings. She has flown in nine bottles of Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte 2000 – priced at a very modest $90 a bottle. The selection of South African wines available at the lodge aren’t to her very specific taste, apparently.”
