In an appearance on the Yo on E! satellite radio show, Madonna admitted that she expected the experience of parenting her 2-year-old son David Banda — whom she adopted from Malawi in 2006 — to differ from that of parenting her biological children Lourdes, 11, and Rocco, 7 ½. The 49-year-old singer says that her expectations were quite wrong, however. She tells E! "I thought it was gonna be [different], but it feels the same to tell you the truth." David, Madonna adds, is "the life of the party.”

Madonna criticized the media's handling of Britney Spears, and revealed that the troubles which have befallen the 26-year-old pop star are a concern for Lourdes.
