Madonna is sad

November 29, 2005 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

The Daily News says today that it’s not easy being Madonna. And no one knows that more than Madonna, who is shown on the documentary of her Re-Invention concert tour with tears rolling down her cheeks as she tells her band about her struggle to juggle work and family.

“I’m sorry I did not get to hang out with you guys as much as I wanted to but I have another family. One day you will know the polarity of work and family and the struggle to keep it all balanced.”

Single working mothers are okay, I guess, but no one has it harder than Madonna. It’s bad enough she has to ride champion horses in the English countryside all day. Then she has to record three minutes of vocals for an album someone else made all the music for. On top of all that, she’s somehow supposed to raise two kids. Cause if Madonna doesn’t do it, who is there to help? The dad? The chefs? The maids? The driver, stable boys, personal trainers, gardeners or butlers? Well, now you’re just being silly.

(Is this a bad time to bring up that Madonna and her kids don’t speak the same language. And I don’t mean that as in, “you kids today have a language all your own”, I mean her kids only speak French and Madonna doesn’t speak any. Seriously. So, when she talks about balancing the polarity of work and family, she doesn’t mean sitting down at dinner and asking how school went, she means passing in the hall, occasionally pointing and shaking her head. Or maybe nodding. Maybe. If the kids have been good.)
