Madonna ''sees kids by appointment''

MADONNA really does put her career before her kids!

According to a new report, the superstar singer tells her kids they have to make an appointment if they want to spend time with her.

Madge %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%94 who has four children %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%94 relies on her personal assistants to schedule time for her with Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy in 15-minute increments.

%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%9CThe children are said to have appointments made to see their mother, who will help with homework, or sing, or even make food with them %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%93 but only if it has been planned in advance,%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%9D Britain%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s Daily Mail newspaper reports.

The kids reportedly have three nannies %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%94 all of whom speak French, as they%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99re being raised to be bilingual %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%94 and two macrobiotic chefs.

Big deal. If they're fishing for dirt and that's the best they can do it's pretty lame. Kids themselves have such hectic schedules these days you sometimes feel like THEY need to fit you into THEIR calendar. It's not unusual at all for busy parents and kids to schedule time together. At least M's making her kids a priority. I'll bet plenty of parents with far less hectic lives spend less time with their kids.

Eh...I'm not a Madonna fan, but this sounds exaggerated to me. I bet nannies supervise a lot of their time (as happens with the super rich and famous), and they don't spend a ton of time with her, but the 15-minute increments and requesting appointments sounds ludicrous. Lourds is old enough to want to spend a lot of time with her own friends, and the youngest one is what, barely in grade school?

by Anonymousreply 608/27/2010

I want to believe this, but you always see pics of her out with the kids and she even carries the younger ones when she could just have a bodyguard lug them around.

My brother and his wife have 2 boys and they rarely see them...even on weekends. Kids are into sports practice, hanging with friends, PS3 junkies while my brother works 60 hour weeks and his wife is an evening waitress.

R9, French has long been the second language of choice for the British upper classes, not to mention the language of taste and culture and sophistication. (Though, honestly, knowledge of Spanish - or Arabic or Chinese - would be more useful than French in today's economy.) Even before she married (and divorced) Guy Ritchie, Madonna tried to act like a British aristocrat, hence French lessons for her kids.

There are other ways to spin this story. How about?:%0D %0D Although Madonna is one of the busiest women in the entertainment business, she is also one of the most organized. Despite her hectic schedule, she makes sure she has time to be with each of her children as often as possible by setting aside increments of time on each day's agenda specifically for them. That way, she never fails to break away from whatever she's working on to take Lourdes to ballet, cheer on Rocco at a football match, etc. etc...

One of her ex nannies said that Madonna didn't allow showers in the morning while she slept, because the sound of the pipes would wake her up (I forgot which house she lived in at the time). Apparently, she sleeps her eight ours (or whatever) no matter what. Can you imagine these kids whispering and tiptoeing around the house in the morning? No way she ever does anything for these kids that's not scheduled. No way.

I remember some article way back where Courtney Love said that she and Kurt Cobain made sure that they spent "at least two hours every day" with Frances Bean. I thought at the time "two hours? Wow, what attentive parents!" Well, I guess they were better parents than Madonna, who schedules appointments to spend time with her kids in 15 minute increments. %0D %0D That article may be slightly exaggerated but I do think that those kids are being raised by nannies and only see Madonna infrequently. How could it NOT be like that? Madonna lives for her career, that has always been the top priority in her life. She always touring, making records, promoting whatever her latest project is. She's taken up film directing; how much time can you spend with your children when you're occupied with establishing yourself as a film director? %0D %0D Indeed, the adoption of those two African children were career moves. She wanted to reinvent herself in a humaniatarian role and what is more humanitarian than adopting a little brown orphan from Africa? Trouble is, neither one of those kids were orphans. She bought them. She bypassed the laws governing the adoption of children in Malawi, I suppose by bribing the corrupt officials there. Now they're being raised by nannies employed by a rich white woman. I'm sure they'll have every material thing anyone could want, but are they being nurtured and loved? I seriously doubt it.

Hmmm, this is utter pretentiousness on Mad-Donna's part.

I guess this phony bitch forgets sleeping rough when she came to NYC? Moving in with strange men in Queens, in their crappy house? I guess the cars rumbling down the block shaking the wood frame house she lived in at the time, didn't bother her or wake Her Royal Foulness up? Now she suddenly requires utter quiet?!

Everything about Madonna is fake, fake, fake. There is nothing worse than white trash with money. They all seem to go about creating a new lifestyle, which they ASSUME the upper classes live.

The worst offenders are musicians and sports figures. Madonna tops this list. Everything she does, drips with pretension and lies.

What was that utter bullshit on Letterman, when she told him she had never eaten pizza? Puh-lease, living in NYC all those years and pizza never passed those cum stained lips?

In the clip on MTV, with Courtney Love and Kurt Loder, you can hear she was starting to change her speaking voice, what a fake poseur piece of shit that woman is.

Maybe this way she has specific blocks of time when she can make the individual child feel special without being interrupted by hangers-on and "urgent" business issues. I actually thought she's handled Lourdes' clothing line and Macy's opening here in NYC quite gracefully.

I thought she actually looked really good for her age up until she got those cheeks. She was a couple of years shy of 50 during Confessions and she looked amazing. Her body looked great and her face looked good.%0D %0D The divorce and turning 50 must have hit her hard. She got those overblown cheeks, and I think another facelift, and looked like a fucking skeleton for Sticky and Sweet.

Compare that picture in R114's link to this one. They were taken only a few years apart. The center pic is bad because of her expression but take a look at the bottom right corner one. She looked great and now she's messed up her face.

[quote]The children are said to have appointments made to see their mother, who will help with homework, or sing, or even make food with them – but only if it has been planned in advance,” Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper reports

She manages to do all that in 15 minutes? Yeah, right.

I can already see the scene in my head when she's on her death bed and her kids are talking about the inheritance in the next room. She'll deserve it too.

I saw her on Houston Street in Manhattan pushing David in a stroller. No Nanny in sight. This was around 2007. She must have had an apartment in the East Village because I saw Guy Richie in the Citi Bank on Avenue A a couple of times. She looked like a hands on Mom to me.

We're going to put her in a home as soon as Lourdes is old enough to get power of attorney.

Sure ya did, r118. She was the same bitch who happily stated that she never once changed a diaper when her kids were babies. "Why should I?"

Everyone knows that she had her daughter for publicity. The woman is a sociopath. She even used her mother's death for entertainment.

Someone needs to slit this cunt's throat once and for all.

If I were one of her kids, I'd make appointments then repeatedly change and/or cancel them, then ask her why she's always missing her appointments.

Yes, I did, r120. Why would I lie about that? It was a shock but it was her. She had red hair and was wearing that bad eye make-up that made her look like an alien. I'm not saying she was alone on the street. She probably did have security close by. I wasn't paying attention to the other people on the street around her. I don't know anything about her personally. Your post sounds made up if the truth be told.

Uh, she didn't have Guy with her when she adopted David r123 that's why they divorced. Guy didn't want David & she did, plus they both hated each other by then.

I didn't say I saw her with Guy. I saw him at the bank on Ave. A. He was by himself. She wasn't with Guy on Houston Street. And if he was with her I didn't see him. She may not have been with Guy when David was adopted but I assume he still wanted to see his OWN son, r124. This is fucking ridiculous. I saw her. Case closed.

Why doesn't she ever comb that nasty hair? She needs to cut it short if she's not going to comb it.

And the black-framed glasses are so 2010.

This type of childhood sounds fucked up.

For whatever reason, I believe Madonna actually is a doting mother.

Perhaps like Diana, her kids will end up fairly well-adjusted.
