ATLANTA -- Thank heaven for Oprah. Last week, the queen of TV talk had the common sense to applaud Madonna's charitable works in the desperately poor African nation of Malawi. Interviewing the beleaguered pop culture icon via satellite, Oprah Winfrey made clear that she and her studio audience supported Madonna's efforts, including her provisional adoption of a small boy. It's about time that an influential voice stepped forward to state the obvious: No matter what Madonna's motives are, she is doing the right thing.

"This book is about sex."So goes the first line in Madonna's "Sex," and it's clear that this is what she wants us to believe about her new book of high-concept erotica. Flip through its 128 pages of nudie photos and heavy-breathing prose, it's easy enough to believe her. Even at their most innocent (which is not very), the words and images collected here seem besotted with physical beauty and fleshly desire.Sex, in other words, fairly drips from its pages -- which, to be honest, is what we expected.

People are missing the point about the new Madonna book. It isn't that she's naked. I mean, who hasn't seen Madonna naked? Her breasts have spent so much time in the great wide open that they might as well be a national park. Don't you have your own personal Upper Deck Madonna's-naked trading cards? Just the other day, I traded Madonna-naked-on-horseback for Madonna-naked-on-a-bus.It's how she's naked. That's why 150 people queued up in the rain in London the other day to buy the oh-so-subtly entitled "Sex."

If all you know about Madonna's current efforts is what you've read in the gossip columns, odds are that you're expecting her new album to be the raciest thing to hit records stores since 2 Live Crew -- a sort of "Nastier Than Any Wanna-Be."It's no wonder you'd get that idea, either, what with all these stories about Madonna's shocking-this and scandalous-that. Starting with the rumors of kinky couplings in "Sex," her book of impure thoughts and naughty pictures, Madonna was painted as a lady with but one thing on her mind: S-E-X.

Once upon a time, there was a pop goddess named Madonna who ruled the radio airwaves and Billboard charts with her beyond-the-curve music. She often thrilled and sometimes shocked millions with a sound and image that drastically morphed with each album release. But the inevitable happened: Madonna grew older. She became a mother, got married, acquired a British accent and wrote children's books. Meanwhile, younger, edgier pop tarts (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce) rose triumphant in Madonna's wake.

If Columbia Pictures has its way, Madonna will play Debra Winger's younger sister in Penny Marshall's "A League of Their Own," the story of an all-women's baseball team set in the 1940s. And if talks with Tom Hanks continue to go well, he'll reunite with Marshall with whom he collaborated on "Big" to play the team's coach.Whether Madonna and Columbia can come to terms is a matter of speculation. "The studio is offering $1," quips one person privy to the negotiations. "She's asking $1 billion."

New York -- She's said to be a master of media manipulation, the sort of star who knows instinctively how to make reporters sit up, beg and roll over. So catching Madonna in a news conference ought to be like watching a virtuoso at work -- a combination of grace, style and supreme confidence.Or so goes the theory. Real life, though, is a little different, and the Madonna who found herself facing a roomful of reporters in New York's Rhiga Royal hotel recently was hardly the cunning image-orchestrator we've heard so much about.
