NEW YORK, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Madonna, who lives in England, has spoken out in New York about fellow celebrities not wearing underwear and her own troubles.
She spoke her mind on CBS' "Late Show" with David Letterman Thursday, CBS reported.
"I've been hearing these stories. It's dreadful," she said. "Honestly, I live in England and so, I get -- I'm pretty cut off from a lot of these stories. I only read stuff about, or hear stuff about the royal family. And so I've come to New York and the first thing I hear is about everyone not wearing their underpants. What's going on? ... It's freezing outside!"
About the uproar surrounding her adoption of David Banda from Malawi, she said, "The controversy took me by surprise."
"We did everything by the book and we went through the courts and, you know, everything was kosher in terms of legal, but it was -- I think it brought a lot of attention to a country who's just coming to terms with what they should do with the overwhelming number of orphans that are there. There's over a million orphans in Malawi and in my opinion, the laws need to change because these children need to be rescued," she added.
