Who says Madonna holds grudges? (Image via video still)
Madonna and her 16-year-old son David Banda have teamed up for a truly lovely cover of Elton John's “Your Song.” They are so in sync here — he seems to center her. Her voice is sweet and pure, no fixes necessary.
And it's all to promote awareness of #StandUpForUkraine — a worthy cause.

Elton has even chimed in with some positivity for a change!
Madonna, her brood in tow, appeared Tuesday at the opening of the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery in Malawi. The facility has 50 beds, and is named for her daughter, one of four children whom she adopted from the African nation.
Mama Madonna was beaming on the festival occasion, at which she was declared a daughter of the country by President Peter Mutharika.
Meanwhile, back in the States — and back in the day! — Madonna's longtime collaborator Patrick Leonard further teased fans by released a snippet of the instrumental track for their unheard demo “Angels with Dirty Faces”:

Perhaps wanting to avoid unkind (and potentially meddlesome) scrutiny, Madonna recently denied shew as seeking to adopt twin girls from Malawi — but officials in the African nation have now confirmed she has been given the go-ahead to do just that.
Madonna's a great, underrated songwriter. As a composer of campaign rhetoric—“She's the Best we got!”—I would grade her a C. But her latest post, nearly revealing her Cs, could have a nipple effect on voters who think this election is a bust either way.
Living For Hilary! Yes I vote for intelligence. I vote for equal rights for women and all minorities. 🙏🏻😂🇺🇸🎈🙌🏻 pic.twitter.com/YxoFYm7HDL
I also have always loved this funny image that seeks to imagine a world where Hillary Clinton and Madonna—such different women, and yet women with shared traits like certitude and righteous indignation and a mind-numbing work ethic—might stand in the same room.
All that said: Hey, Madona, her name is H-I-L-L-A-R-Y. Once and for all.
Just in case you were unsure of how Madonna feels, she let her young son David celebrate his birthday by taking off the head of a Donald Trump piñata:
Finally, if you're in NYC and you love Madonna, get on the boat:
Idiotic Dan Wootton completely fabricated a cover story for the Sun, in which he asserts Madonna was drunk at her Tears of a Clown Melbourne gig. Anyone there and anyone with access to YouTube videos—which presumably includes Wootton—knows Madonna wasn't drunk.
Furthermore, the gig is framed as being some sort of shocking meltdown. Again, watch the videos. The only way in which she shocked fans was with her uncommercial setlist. It was a highlight of her stage career, not some kind of mental break.
