“Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it, grab a globe, and then donate it to charity…” OK, so it may not rhyme and it may not live up to the songwriting standards of modern music, but it does explain what Madonna is up to over at eBay this week.
Starting today, one lucky bidder will get into the groove and thank their lucky star when the Material Girl auctions off the polystyrene and plaster globe she posed beside on the upcoming May cover of Vanity Fair magazine.
The singer has signed the globe and also drawn a heart around Africa – almost like a borderline. Proceeds from the auction will benefit her Raising Malawi organization, a charity she established to raise money for one of the poorest nations in the world.
As an added bonus, which any Madonna fan will cherish, the Queen of Pop is also auctioning two tickets for a show in New York later this month, including accommodation and dinner. Fans are guaranteed to want to live to tell about the holiday experience, which will be like a prayer come true.
So open your heart, express yourself, and try to count exactly how many Madonna song titles I just included in that story…
