Madonna seems to be trying to “reinvent” herself once again as a globetrotting celebrity humanitarian, supposedly following in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie and Bono, but it appears that she has stumbled badly.

Baby David wearing 'Kabbalah red string'The 1980s diva adopted an African baby only to have that act raise questions about her motives and morality.

Perhaps it wasn’t good press, but generosity that motivated the former “Material Girl.” However, her public statements seem increasingly conflicted and confused.

Discussing her new baby boy David’s religious future she said, “If David decides he wants to be a Christian, then so be it,” and then added, “I believe in Jesus and I study Kabbalah, so I don’t see why he can’t too” reports the BBC.

However, how can the child make up his mind about religion when his mommy apparently can’t?

Madonna, formerly a Roman Catholic, now celebrates Jewish holidays and festivals through the religious organization known as the “Kabbalah Centre,” founded by Philip Berg, now effectively run by his wife Karen and their two sons Yehuda and Michael.

Madonna crucifiedLittle David has already been spotted wearing the “red string” amulet sold by his mother’s spiritual mentors.

Madonna’s rep, Liz Rosenberg, told Jeannette Walls at MSNBC this was to protect him from “the unfriendly stare and unkind glances,” more commonly called the “evil eye.”

Experts on Jewish mysticism have frequently criticized the Kabbalah Centre, which has been called a “cult,” for its crass commercialism. And the group has no meaningful status within the organized Jewish community.

Madonna likewise hasn’t much standing amongst Christian leaders, other than frequent denouncements, most recently for her concert crucifixions.

So where does that leave little David?

Should he follow mom’s example, a woman that seemingly believes in certain chosen and combined facets of two religions simultaneously?

Has Madonna become something like a so-called “Jew for Jesus“?

Welcome to the confusing world that this celebrity’s kids must inhabit.

Madonna has dismissed critics of her adoption as “racist” claiming, “A lot of people have a problem with the fact that I’ve adopted an African child.”

However, CultNews thinks baby David may “have a problem,” trying to form a consistent identity under Madonna’s influence.

Merrion mocks MadonnaFollow-up: Madonna was ridiculed about her adoption. Dressed in drag as the “Material Girl” for the MTV Europe Music Awards comic Avid Merrion did a send-up of the diva’s dance number from last year backed up by “little people” gyrating in baby clothes reports The Independent online.  “I’m getting too old for this s***.” Merrion mugged. And then the comic told the audience mimicking the star, “I’ve been getting a lot of hoo-ha from the press recently just because I bought a baby. But I’m Madonna. If I want to buy a baby I buy a flipping baby.”
