Madonna's Spending Spree for New Son
Madonna wants her new 13-month old adopted son, David Banda, to grow up with all the comforts his little heart could desire. To this end, she spent about $28,000 (£15,000) on decorations for his nursery and toys for him to play with. Her purchases include a child-sized electric car, a $9,300 (£5,000) rocking horse and a "designer wardrobe." For his room, she installed "giant murals of tigers and lions," a surround-sound stereo system for playing classical music and a set of cotton and cashmere sheets for his bed.
Apparently, some of the residents of David's village in Malawi were shocked to hear of the amount she spent and noted that such an amount "could have paid for 10,000 chickens and 500 goats, or 10 mud huts."
