Madonna has cleared up rumours she and husband Guy Ritchie are planning to adopt a child by revealing she's actually planning to play mum to an African village. The pop superstar set tongues wagging when news broke about her reported links to African adoption agencies last month (JUN06). More recent reports even suggested the singer and her movie maker husband were even seeking new dad Brad Pitt's advice on adoption after he became the legal guardian of girlfriend Angelina Jolie's two adopted children. But now Madonna has revealed, through her aides, she has much bigger plans. In a statement released yesterday (21JUL06), a spokeswoman says, "Actually she is adopting a village of children... Madonna is participating in the building of a school and home for hundreds of kids in Malawi, Africa and that is her current passion and commitment."
