In an appearance on the Yo on E! satellite radio show, Madonna admitted that she expected the experience of parenting her 2-year-old son David Banda — whom she adopted from Malawi in 2006 — to differ from that of parenting her biological children Lourdes, 11, and Rocco, 7 ½. The 49-year-old singer says that her expectations were quite wrong, however. She tells E! "I thought it was gonna be [different], but it feels the same to tell you the truth." David, Madonna adds, is "the life of the party.”
He loves music, he’s an amazing dancer. … He’s a character.
Madonna criticized the media’s handling of Britney Spears, and revealed that the troubles which have befallen the 26-year-old pop star are a concern for Lourdes.
She knows Britney, (but) she doesn’t really watch TV or read gossip stuff. I think she sort of gets the drift of what’s going on, and I think she feels very protective of Britney.
