    The government of Malawi has trashed Madonna. Madge adopted two children from the area and said she wanted to build 10 schools in the impoverished African country. But the local government doesn't feel like she is going about it the right way.

    Malawi's Ministry of Education spokeswoman Lindiwe Chide said the government is fed up with Madonna, who allegedly never informed the government before she abandoned plans for an all-girls school.

    "Now she decides to announce that she plans to build 10 schools without getting authority from us again," said Chide. "We now feel like this is all about propping up her global image and not in our interest."

    Chide also said, "She has no mandate to decide where she wants to build a school because she doesn't know our needs and where we want new schools… she first needed to consult us, get permission from us before doing anything."

    Team Madonna or Team Chide?
