    Hasn’t she had menopause yet? I think she is too old at 46. Just because have CAN have a child at almost 50 it doesn’t mean she SHOULD have one. Her husband is younger then her but I still don’t think it’s right to the child.

    Why wouldn’t she want another? Look at her two first success stories…None other then her little Lola and Rocco. Lola is so beautiful. Lola is going to be drop dead gorgeous when she grows up. Rocco is absolutely adorable, and that will probably carry with him as he ages too. That’s what happens when you have two gorgeous parents….gorgeous looking kids. Madonna became a mother for the first time at 38. Who cares if she wants to have another child…good for her.People need to learn to leave age out of the equation and let people go on with their lives without scrutiny.

    They make fun of her fake accent; they ridiculed her for not knowing the best selling British children’s author of all time when she claims to be a children’s author, they constantly run stories about her leaving Britain and how glad they are about it and they’re currently raking her over the coals regarding not wanting ramblers on her property….. as far has her being the greatest blah blah blah, that comment is so stupid it doesn’t even warrant a reply…… its pop trash, moron. the whore hit on a novel idea, sex sells, oh gee, I’ll sell myself. as far as not seeing another female performer like her again, let hope we don’t; we have enough disposable trash. and the only person she’s made an impact on is you, idiot!

    She’s too old. I just turned 30, I have two toddlers, and I’m convinced that I’m too old to have another child. Granted, she’s in great shape, but 46 is still too old. The complications and risks of birth defects gets higher and higher over the age of 30…I can’t even imagine what it’s like when you’re nearly 50!

    Madonna’s tour made a lot of money really quickly. She just started touring at the end of May while everyone else has been touring much longer. For a month and a half of touring Madonna’s numbers are absolutely incredible.
