The southern African country of Malawi is not thrilled with Madonnas plans to build 10 new schools in the area, because they claim she didnt consult with them first and dont feel her intentions are pure.
The government feels as though the singer is more concerned with upping her global image than helping with the countrys education, Reuters reported.
Madonnas charity Raising Malawi is teaming up with the non-profit group buildOn for the project that hopes to educate at least 1,000 children per year.
However, Malawis Ministry of Education said that the government was fed up with Madonna after she scrapped a project in that country last year.
Spokeswoman Lindiwe Chide said that Madonna canceled the building of a girls school because of alleged mismanagement and the project going over budget without informing the Malawian authorities.
Now she decides to announce that she plans to build ten schools without getting authority from us again, Chide said. We now feel like this is all about propping up her global image and not in our interest.

Join the club, we've got jackets.
You got a jacket? I just got a goofy hat!
No bribes, no schools...
Or, there might be more to the story. Maybe she isn't playing ball.
Madonna, like most celebs, can become tiresome rather quickly; I find pop stars are best experienced in very small doses.
I was fed up with her by 1985...
I just looked up “slut” in the dictionary and it showed her photo as an example.

You must have last year’s dictionary. Mine has a picture of that ugly fluke chick under “slut.” They moved madonna’s picture to “skank” and again under “washed-up.”
I have to admit that this is a tough one to choose sides.
Yep. I wish more folks were wearing the "fog-proof" goggles that you obviously have on today.
A pox on both their houses.
This drama queen is getting a long in the tooth and very short on knowing how “things work”..
Her fake british accent is not well traveled its funny.. even peculiar..
