Madonna claims she's a better humanitarian because her adopted African baby "blacker than Brangelina's"

NEW YORK -- During a recent concert at Madison Square Garden to promote her new album "Hard Candy," pop diva Madonna argued that she was a better humanitarian than Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt since her adopted Malawian son David is 'way blacker' than Zahara, the Ethiopian-born adopted daughter of the famous couple.
When a fan in the front row shouted out, "What about their other kids from Vietnam and Cambodia?" she was said to have replied, "Yellow doesn't count, plus my African baby is also a Jew," referring to her decision to convert son David to Judaism as part of her commitment to studying Kabbalah and adding, "Try to top that one!" She then ordered security to immediately escort the errant fan from the building.
Neither Madonna's manager, Guy Oseary, nor her touring company, Live Nation, returned phone calls seeking comment.
