New single "give me all your luvin' " is out at the end of January
Pop star Madonna has reached agreement to pay K24 million to eight sacked school employees in Malawi who sued her over unpaid benefits and unjustified sackings after the collapse of her schools project.
The group of sacked workers included chief executive Anjimile Oponyo.
The singer contested that there was nothing unfair about the termination of the employees' contracts, which was necessary due to genuine economic reasons.
The staff had claimed that they were being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement which was "unfair and unconstitutional".
The industrial court in Blantyre however told Madonna to pay up.
Madonna had planned to build a $15 million school for girls, Raising Malawi Academy for Girls (RMAG), in Lilongwe Malawi three years ago, but the project was cancelled amid allegations of mismanagement including excessive spending on offices cars and golf membership. An audit found $3.8 million had been squandered.
Madonna, who has adopted two children from Malawi, announced in January 2011 that she was overhauling her plans for Malawi.
She said she wanted to build more community schools that would reach out to more girls than the academy, which would have offered scholarships to 500 girls from impoverished backgrounds.
However, she has not followed up her latest plans and her charity has been inactive in Malawi for more than a year.

Case in point: "Masterpiece", the Material Girl's now-Golden Globe-nominated song contribution to her second directorial effort "W.E.", was not among the 39 tunes announced by the Academy today as eligible for next year's Best Original Song Oscar. So what gives? Was it something she said?
As it turns out, the snub isn't personal - "Masterpiece" really isn't eligible. See, in order to qualify for the category, the song in question needs to:
a) Consist of words and music, both of which are original and used specifically for the film; and
b) Be used either in the body of the film, or as the "first music cue" in the closing credits (i.e. the first song that plays once the screen fades to black).
The latter of the above two criteria appears to be the problem for "Masterpiece", which isn't featured in the context of the film itself and also happens to be the second song featured during the movie's closing crawl. (The first being a continuation of composer Abel Korzeniowski's score.)
Maybe the Oscar-obsessed Weinsteins figured the Academy would overlook the established rules when coming up with the Best Original Song eligibles - you know, because they're the Weinsteins? Or were they simply unaware of the Academy's specific requirements before sending out those "Masterpiece"-touting"W.E." screeners?
In any case, looks like poor old Madge is once again being denied the opportunity to add "Oscar nominee/winner" to her substantial list of accomplishments (particularly given that "W.E." isn't expected to pick up any other substantial nods), a designation that I can't imagine she isn't at least a little bit hungry for (she isMadonna, after all).
Madonna racked up her fifth Golden Globe bid for songwriting last week when "Masterpiece" from her film "W.E." was nominated. Her fans will be disappointed to hear the end credits track isn't among the 39 songs deemed eligible for Oscar consideration. Hers is the only high-profile omission in a competitive race.

On the Anderson cooper show, madonna said something similar and
Anderson replied, "they said no to madonna"??!!
Madonna replied "would you stop that Anderson!, I'm. Not god"!

in fact give madonna a bracelet ,that they made specifically for her.
