Madonna Says “Don’t Say No to Me,” Gives Manager Hawaii Holiday Home During Intimate 90 Min Charity Show for African Children


Madonna’s intimate 90 minute charity show from Miami was streamed live on Facebook last night,or this morning depending on how you think about it.

Yes, Madonna is still dressed as a clown. This is her new thing. The pants don’t do a lot for her. She also insists on singing “Send in the Clowns” with a processor. This is like sucking caviar through a straw.

This was a fundraiser for her questionable Raising Malawi Foundation. Toward the end of the night, she praises manager Guy Oseary, and then tells him she’ll buy him the holiday home he rents in Hawaii. Oseary also manages U2. My guess is he can afford his own house. But this seems right during a fundraiser for African children. There’s a catch though and you can hear how Madonna plans to buy the house for him at around 1:00.

Madonna’s heart is in the right place. I’ll give her that. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions. She also says she drove everyone who worked on the event crazy because they couldn’t find red lampshades that lit up. It took two weeks for her to get her away. “Don’t say no to me,” Madonna concluded.
