Brad Pitt on his Bike

Brad Pitt had a lucky escape yesterday after being knocked off his bike. The star was weaving through traffic on the custom-made bike when a photographer inched his car a little too close.

Brad swerved to avoid the photographer’s car, clipping the wing mirror of a parked vehicle and eventually losing his balance, ending up on the floor. But instead of causing a scene, onlookers said he simply picked himself up and wheeled his bike to the side of the road.

Luckily the Brad wasn’t injured, but it wasn’t such a lucky escape for the bike which was later seen being towed home on a truck. After exchanging insurance details with the driver whose car he clipped, poor Brad then had to wait by the side of the road for an assistant to pick him up.

Madonna took “Disneyland” to Malawi yesterday (25.10.09). The ‘Celebration’ singer flew to the African country – where she was joined by daughter Lourdes, 13, son Rocco, nine, and her two adopted Malawian children, David and Mercy, both four – with so many toys, bouncy castles and rocking horses that amazed onlookers joked their  Kumbali Lodge apartment resembled the famous theme park.

One local resident said: “It’s like Disneyland has come here.”
The 51-year-old singer has returned to the country for a week-long break, starting with the official opening of her charity’s school, the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls, in Lilongwe later today (25.10.09). She said: “It’s an honour for me to be able to help as many of these girls as I can achieve their dreams. I’m also incredibly proud of all the projects Raising Malawi is involved in and I look forward to visiting a number of them during my visit.”

Madonna apparently wanted to wait until her two youngest children were fluent in the local language, Chichewa, until she took them back to their home country. When David struggled to converse with his old friends on their last visit, Madonna embarked them on a course of intense schooling.
