Animal activists are outraged with Madonna after the Material Girl dyed her sheep blue, pink, yellow and green for a Vogue spread at their English country estate, in Wiltshire. Madge and hubby Guy Ritchie insisted the dye used was temporary and did not harm the animals, but the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) said it set a bad example. “Why is it necessary and what are they trying to prove,” an RSPCA spokesperson asked. “It is an irresponsible publicity stunt. It sends out the wrong message about how to use animals.” Read more, including a picture of one of the dyed sheep, here.
Madonna Working To Improve Malawian’s Quality Of Life… Or Proselytize?
November 7, 2007 – Madonna checked in with a message at her Raising Malawi web site. “Through the Raising Malawi: Orphan Care Initiative, Michael Berg and I have committed to doing all that we can to help this small country in desperate need,” she writes, referring to the teacher, author, and co-director of the Kabbalah Centre. “We have met with world experts in healthcare, economics, education, and international development – leaders like Dr. Jeffrey Sachs and Dr. Paul Farmer, who have given a voice to the most underprivileged sectors of society. Together we are working to raise the quality of life for a generation of orphaned and vulnerable children. Now I’m asking you to join us.” FoxNews.com’s Roger Friedman has said of the charity: “The entire organization is run by the Bergs as a kind of missionary program for Africa, with Madonna as the leading proselytizer. Unlike U2’s Bono, who’s merely trying to send money to Africa by pushing the sales of red phones and T-shirts, Madonna is preaching as she disseminates her funds and largesse.”
