LILONGWE, MALAWI (AP) - Madonna is apparently throwing a party in Malawi in a bid to swallow her disappointment that a judge rejected her application to adopt a young orphan.

Traditional dancers have arrived at the luxury lodge where the pop diva is staying, as well as government officials and members of staff of her Raising Malawi charity.

Amid strict security, there was no immediate confirmation on whether it was a farewell party.

Air traffic control authorities granted clearance for Madonna’s jet to depart Saturday but the star stayed in the lodge all day. Her lawyer has said she will appeal against Friday’s judgment that she could not adopt a 3-year-old girl because she had not been resident in Malawi.
