Madonna defends Tom Cruise's honour

Singer says the actor 'gets a raw deal'

Madonna defends Tom Cruise's honour
Madonna has defended the honour of A-list actor Tom Cruise, and says that people are generally suspicious of those who want to do something good.

The Queen Of Pop is currently gearing up for the release of her brand new album 'Hard Candy' and the premiere of her Malawi documentary 'I Am Because We Are', which will screen at the forthcoming Tribeca film festival in New York.

In an interview with New York Magazine, the singer commented on being the subject of criticism for her charity work alongside the likes of Angelina Jolie, saying: "It's not just celebrities. I think people are just strangely suspicious of people who want to do something good."

When asked about Tom Cruise, who attended her 'Raising Malawi' fundraiser for orphans in February, Madonna admitted she sympathises with the actor and commented: "I don't care if people worship turtles or frogs — if they're good people, that's all I care about, and he is a good person.

"I think he gets a raw deal, just as I think the orphans in Malawi get a raw deal, just as I think a lot of marginalised people get a raw deal."

'Hard Candy' comes out in the US on Tuesday (April 29).
