Madge vs. Malawi: Madonna is not pleased with a Malawi judge’s decision about the fate of Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza.
The world may not have been waiting for Madonna’s input, but for the record, she vehemently disapproves of a Malawi judge’s decision, issued Thursday, to sentence a young gay couple to 14 years of hard labor after they openly celebrated their engagement late last year. —KA

“I am shocked and saddened by the decision made by the Malawian court, which sent two innocent men to prison,” Madonna said Friday in a statement posted on her web site.
“Malawi took a giant step backward,” the singer continued. “The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support out basic human right to love and be loved.”
