The Fabric Girl was carrying out in the Staples Center in Los Angeles as part of her MDNA tour when she gave an onstage shout-to the youthful education-activist who had been shot on her behalf way home from in Mingora, Pakistan, a week ago.
“This made me cry,” Madonna said to the 18,000 fans in attendance. “The 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot on a school bus for writing a blog… who wrote a blog about how important education was to her. The Taliban stopped her bus and shot her… Do you understand the sickness and absurdity of this?”
Hollywood stars like Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum and Neil Patrick Harris were in attendance at the show.
