It Seems Madge Can’t Do Anything Right

I'm not Madonna's biggest fan or anything and I'm usually the first to call her out, but this is just ridic. Madge will headline Live Earth London this Saturday and she's come under fire, because she's not as green as she seems.
Fox News reports that "Green" means money to Madge. She has come under fire for being an investor in companies that are creating the destruction that Live Earth is trying to raise awareness about.
They report:
It's a cruel irony that Madonna's Ray of Light Foundation owns blocks of shares in companies that folks like Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio would like to see punished and rehabilitated for their attitudes toward global warming, climate control and basic pollution.
The companies include Alcoa, Ingersoll Rand, Weyerhaeuser, and several others associated with oil exploration, digging, and refining including British Petroleum, Schlumberger (a chief competitor of Halliburton), Devon Energy, Peabody Energy, Emerson Electric, Kimberly Clark and Weatherford International.

Madonna's Ray of Light Foundation has stock in each of these companies. Her last published tax statement claims $4.2 million in corporate stock, and only $620,000 in donations to other charities including her pet project: the Kabbalah Center.

Madonna even has 175,000 shares of Ford Motor Company, which in 2005 — the last year for which Ray of Light Foundation's tax form is available — had only one hybrid SUV in its fleet. Even now, but certainly then, Ford was/is not known as a green company. The only obvious thing Ford and Madonna have in common is Detroit — although it could be argued that only Ford has retained its Midwest accent.

It's a long ass article, so visit Fox News to read the rest. I mean how is this woman to know every single detail of her life? I guess she could tell her money bitches to only invest in "green companies." I mean Madonna isn't the greenest of celebrities, but cut her some slack. The only thing I do know is that her hand scares the shit out of me!!!!
