Madonna needs a supernanny

Madonna is having a hard time hiring a nanny to help her care for her adopted son David Banda – because she’s too picky. The `Hung Up’ singer – who adopted the 15-month-old oalawian boy in october – has been interviewing candidates since Christmas but cannot find a nanny who will adhere to her strict rules which include no television and no visitors. A source reveals, “Madonna has been interviewing people and has used her friends Stella McCartney and Gwyneth Paltrow, who both have children, to help her find a suitable employee. But she hasn’t been able to find anyone. She is panicking a bit as she has yet to find someone who is prepared to adhere to her strict lifestyle. Madonna doesn’t believe in television. Whoever gets the job has also been warned they will be working flat out for the first three months and won’t be allowed any visitors.” The 48-year-old singer – who splits her time between London and Los Angeles – already has a host of minders to help her look after her daughter, ten-year-old Lourdes, and son Rocco, six.
