I can't decide if this is more funny or infuriating: "As Madonna's publicist explains, 'She's focusing on Malawi. South Africa is Oprah's territory.'"
It is kind of interesting how neatly these celebrities have carved out their respective spheres of influence, a la great colonial powers of the past. Do they talk to each other about it first? Do they have G-8-type meetings in Hollywood to negotiate who gets to "save" what country?
