Last night Madonna brought in $7.5 million dollars at an Art Basel auction fundraiser for Raising Malawi, the singer’s nonprofit dedicated to providing aid to children in the African country. Let that empirical good stand as a light-giving beacon before you, as you make your way through the darkness that is all her jokes about being married to Sean Penn. “I’m still in love with you,” Madonna informed the actor, who was in attendance in Miami and to whom Madonna was married for four years. (Three photos of their nuptials were auctioned off for the occasion; they brought in $230,000.) People reports that the singer also attempted to cajole Sean Penn to cough up $150,000 in exchange for her hand in marriage. Sorry, Vincent D’Onofrio’s daughter! Penn was game for all of it, bidding on items throughout the night and eventually taking the stage, where he crawled between Madonna’s legs as she moaned and slapped her into a handcuffs. “For once, he’s not the one being arrested,” Madonna joked, but perhaps we all should be.
