Madonna in Malawi: In like a VIP, Out like an Average Joe

You probably heard this one before. It starts with Madonna going to Malawi…

In the past the story ends with her visiting on of her projects in the country or adopting a kid. Her trip this month featured a twist ending.

Madonna did spend her time in Malawi visiting the projects that her charity, Raising Malawi, with her children in tow. Being an international superstar and philanthropic activities, Madonna and her entourage entered the country like VIPs.

That means, according to the Telegraph, that they get to skip the immigration lines, have access to a special lounge and are provided limo service to and from their private plane.

Fast forward to the end of the trip. The rock star and her entourage get majorly dissed!

Here’s how it unfolded: Madonna is wrapping things up and decides to pen a quick letter to her pal Joyce who also lives in Malawi and was unable to hang out.
Dear Joyce,
