Debbie Harry wants to adopt baby from earthquake-hit Japan
Washington: Lead singer of punk rock band Blondie, Debbie Harry, has revealed that she is considering adopting a child affected by the recent earthquake in Japan.
Harry, 65, who was adopted at a young age by shop owners Richard and Catherine Harry, has never had children but did occasionally think about the idea of expanding her family.
“I’ve thought of adoption, which I think I’d be really good at. Now that this terrible earthquake has happened in Japan, there will be lots of children needing homes,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
The singer also revealed that she supports various causes, and is very concerned about the environment and clean water and being carbon-free.
“I spread myself around a lot of causes. I also support diabetes research. If I were to do a foundation it would be to promote solar energy,” she said.
“And I’m worried about drilling for oil. I think it is harming the earth, because it drains the layer of oil under the surface, and that could be causing earthquakes.
“It’s like we’re giving the earth arthritis. I don’t know if that sounds crazy,” she added.
