From Vanity Fair....
I really was
unaware that Vanity Fair (the magasine, not the
book) was quite so strongly philosophical....
world is a series of rooms, which
are arranged like concentric circles, or rooms
within rooms, joined by courtyards and
antechambers, and in the room in the center
of all those rooms Madonna sits alone, in a
white dress, dreaming of Africa.
Well, my guess is that someone's vanity has been flattered....
