| Filed under: MadonnaInspirationBono

When Madonna has an idea, it's nothing but the biggest and the best for Madge!

The pop icon is currently following the footsteps of Bob Geldof by planning a Live Aid type charity concert to benefit Malawi, which will be shown on TV around the world.

She has already called several of her celeb friends, including Bono, to perform at the Walk Out of Poverty concert in September.

A source at her Raising Malawi charity has confirmed that plans are well underway so that Madonna "make(s) this the biggest fund-raiser the world has ever seen. (She) is throwing everything into it. She knows the bigger the event the more money will be raised."

We know that if Madonna is planning it, it will be amazing! We can't wait to see who else she lines up for the concert!

    Someone should be doing a concert for the unemployed people in the good old USA.



  2. 2

    Next month she'll turn 52.
    Embrace it, Madonna. Stop running away from it.



  3. 3

    WHY does she just not give half her fortune .. ? That would be the NOBLE thing to do. Or, at least stop throwing money at that crap Kabballah religion/cult ….



  4. 4

    OR, how ’bout all the profit from that Crap Clothing Line she has started in collaboration with Lourdes (give me a break !) go to this poor country … ?



  5. 5

    Love her, Madonna is and will ALWAYS be the Queen of Pop. I’m sure this event will be amazing and have remarkable talent. Of course the Madonna haters will be on her ripping on her as soon as they read this since no good deal can go unpunished in their eyes when it comes to Madonna. She’s already the biggest and most successful female artist in history, she doesn’t have anything else to gain.

    Ah…

    …Hagdonna's trying to soften up the Malawais so she can abscond with another of their kids again, 'eh.

    *

    She's so special.

    Will that snot-nosed little stuck-up shit-face 'Gwynetth' be there… ?



  8. 8

    Until they start treating their GLBT citizens like humans and not criminals to be disposed of, I'd refuse to give them anything.



  9. 9

    The rich fucker could donate 10 times what she could raise with out even noticing without making her fans break the bank to see her fucking show. how about Give milawi a few mil and pay your fans to come to the show.



  10. 10

    NO ONE SHOULD GIVE A DIME TO THIS HELL HOLE !! They kill and imprison gays and treat women like shit !!! Let them wallow in what they have made !!!!



  11. 11

    i'm wondering why she's sooo obsessed with that country…i mean there're plenty of poor countries out there…



  12. 12

    Perez, WHEN are you going to demand that she STOPS WEARING AND PROMOTING FUR!!!!!



  13. 13

    I love Madonna!!!!xo



  14. 14

    I LOVE QUEEN OF THE GREMLINS



  15. 15

    Whatever. Bono is so yesterday. What about the USA? People need jobs and the oil spill is epic. Tired of bailing out every other country but our own. Obviously she is desperate to go BIG because Gaga has knocked her off her pedestal. She NEEDS Gaga More than Gaga needs her.



  16. 16

    Lady GaGa è e sarà sempre la Regina del Pop.
    LOVE.



  17. 17

    Madonna has m-i-l-l-i-o-n-s
    ……………..So many Americans are out of work, lost their homes and struggling.
    She needs to let go some of her money.
    I am weary of rich celebrities begging for money.
    They would not miss a million or two.



  18. 18

    How charitable is Madonna IF she wants to save Malawki, but with OUR money, not hers???



  19. 19

    Re: lghshr – Help Americans in need???? How dare you even suggest suggest such a thing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL It's not the "thing" to do !



  20. 20

    Yeah? I'll continue to send money to AZ and rescue efforts in the gulf.



  21. 21

    Re: Gary78 – Malawi didn't imprison Oscar Wilde. Malawi didn't murder Pier Paolo Pasolini, Marc Blitzstein or Sal Mineo. Open a history book, why don't you?



  22. 22

    Africa… the fashioned poor place to contribute your money and got it wasted by its corrupted goverments…
    Celebrities and their fashioned poors make me tired. If they really HELPED people at all, I wouldnt complain.



  23. 23

    Idontbelieveyou agreed. Yes let's go bail out another country and give her the credit. In fact let's sponsor e veryone to move over here and use our resources and take more ofour jobs.Maybe some day they will even hold a benefit for us since we are giving away the shirts off our backs.



  24. 24

    Do we not have a lot of our own problems here in the States? I am all for helping others but lets help out at home first!



  25. 25

    Like everything else this decrepit old has-been touches, this will flop massively.



  26. 26

    Re: Gary78 – Silly me! I forgot it's not good press to help your own!



  27. 27

    So she is going to throw a fundraiser for the country where she does her kid shopping…..how noble of her. I agree with almost everyone that she could skips the fundraiser and offer her own funds to benefit the kid-boutique, i mean country and she wouldn;t even miss it! These type of celebritys make me sick! I give to my church because I know they support LOCAL charities first. Wake up America, we have poor people and kids who go to bed hungry in this country too and I live in Newport Beach!



  28. 28

    Undisputed Queen of Pop! Love her! What she is doing in Malawi is great! She has helped over 25,000 orphans there. God bless her! More pop stars should be doing the charity work that she does!



  29. 29

    The only reason I'm writing this is because her staff reads this blog. No one of any moral conscience in this nation can donate money to a country that imprisons men and women for being homosexual. Unfortunately, the poor are the victims–and this country has incredible and unbelievable poverty, but if their "government" wants financial aid, it comes with conditions, and those conditions are human rights for everyone. Unless I see anything close to concessions from their leaders, it is immoral to donate one cent to Malawi. I'm going to do some research into who exactly is running things over there - and what can be done to foster political change.

    Re: lghshr

    FUCK YEAH….I TOTALLY AGREE….FUCK MALAWI….SHES JUST DOING IT SO SHE CANT KEEP HER ADOPTIVE NIGGLETS…

    I HATE MADONNA….

    Re: queen_0f_p0p – hi Queen of FlopS



  32. 32

    madonna is a perfectionist she wont stop until it is perfect this is her nature

    as i see it anyways
    i love her ..

    but i dont think we need MOREE of these fundraiser concerts …



  33. 33

    Good for her! I agree with lgshr, though, why the hell isn't America cleaning up its own backyard first?

  34. mvp says – reply to this


    34

    long live the queen



  35. 35

    I thought "Madge's" tits were bigger than that!?!?!
    * * *
    Also, SBUX best be careful who they have shilling their crap: Seeing Perez drinking that stuff definitely WON'T entice me to be buying one of those things…



  36. 36

    Re: queen_0f_p0p – 25,000 orphans? Where are you getting your facts? We all know that Maddona only does whatever benefits her career…if that means giving birth or buying a child then so be it….but nevermind our own country..only the darker nations are suffering in her nip=tucked eyes right?….nooooooo



  37. 37

    Im thinking mayb she should do one for the people of the USA. whats going on here ????? all these celebs doing bennifits and fundraiser for other counties



  38. 38

    Bono,Madonna = satanists…they have to try real hard and prove to the public they're humanitarians because they're the opposite, its the mark of a satanist liar. any human being that demands worship or praise by millions of people and doesn't show a bit of humility is satanic by nature. satanic=anti human.



  39. 39

    we have many people here in thsi country who could use a help
    and and education. Maybe she should use her money to build a school in
    the inner city and fund it with a Life Aid USA…maybe it wouldn't have the same effect.
    Staying relevant is getting harder for the ho.



  40. 40

    SORRY MADONNA!!! BETWEEN WHAT UNCLE SAM TAKES AND WHAT THE IRS TAKES FROM ME….I THINK I WILL LEAVE THE DONATING TO THOSE WHO HAVE SOMETHING LEFT.



  41. 41

    DOES ANYONE KNOW ON THIS BLOG THAT USA ARE NOT THE CENTRE OF THE WORLD.
    TAKE A LOOK OUTSIDE PEOPLE.



  42. 42

    The only way to solve poverty is to give IUDs to doctors for free and pay the doctors all over the world to place the IUDs in fertile women who are willing to have the IUDs placed in their bodies. Once the woman is truly ready to start a family (when there are funds available to care for a child), she can have the IUD removed and have a baby.



  43. 43

    me and a friend, we always have a laugh, when we see the madonna-bags in the fashion-shop around our corner for 1 euro (!). We wonder, if Madonna knows that people design under her name; those bags and cheap underwear..



  44. 44

    Yeah Guy. Tell you what. America is going downhill thanks to all you do-gooders
    Who want to save the world when this country is ib deep trouble. Well give and give til we got none and these other countries that we keep fixing - when our own is very much u. A crisis will not be there to bail us out. We are in a depression and headed for disaster yet are stupid enough to follow celebrities every suggestion and whim. Wake up and see the reality because life as we've known it is being stripped away. Well divert all of our attention to PC causes and one day figure out were screwed.



  45. 45

    good for her



  46. 46

    God Bless Madonna for having a kind heart and helping so many kids in Malawi. She has done an impressive charity work with children worldwide but in specially in Malawi where help is needed the most. This sounds really good and i hope it's true.



  47. 47

    yes yes madinna is always the best live. she was huge in live 8 and live earth.the queen of pop is the best performer by fobes and she really knows how to thrill the crowd. Re: caroaber – even at 52 she moves better on stage than all the young artists. yeah she embraces the idea of being 52 but not the idea of being death, shes an example for women. keep tghe hard working



  48. 48

  52. 52

    strong and powerful woman. wow. she blows my mind. GODDESS



  53. 53

    Cool. :)



  54. 54

    Instead of raping your fans like she usually does with over 100 dollar concert ticket prices with shitty seats. Why doesnt she donate some of her millions of dollars to her personal cause and not tell anyone about it. Oh yeah, she is an egotistical selfish bitc* who has to be patted on the back for every rare good thing she does.



  55. 55

    Unemployed Amercians need to get off their fat bums and get themselves a job.
    If you are unhappy with the state of unemployment in USA, contact your government and get them to fix it, this is NOT Madonna's problem.
    Madonna takes millions of $$$ from countries all around the world in music sales, and pays millions of $$$ to the Amercian goverment in the form of tax.
    GROW UP AMERCIANS, Madonna doesn't need to help Amercia, your government does.
    I think Amercians need to pay more tax, then they will have the money they desperatley need.
    LETS HELP AMERCIA, MAKE THE AMERCIANS PAY LOTS, LOTS, LOTS MORE TAX. THIS WAY THE GOVERNMENT CAN GIVE MONEY TO THE UNEMPLOYED BUMS WHO CAN'T BE BOTHERED GETTING A JOB.



  56. 56

    Re: crispycandance – You are one stupid mutha fucka !



  58. 58

    Gappy Granny should donate the hundreds of dollars she made from her latest bombs "Celebration" and "Revolver". Or the few thousands she made from "Hard Candy". She can recruit Heidi Montag and Jordan to perform with her at the concert and they can raise hundreds more!



  59. 59

    Re: MadonnaLive
    GaGa is mentioned absolutely nowhere in this article. But what will you do if she happens to be part of the lineup of performers, because it's quite possible that it could happen?
    PS. Madonna is not bigger than the Beatles–never will be. Quit dreaming.



  60. 60

    All the kids on here who are saying crap like "don't give them money, they treat gays bad". If you are AMAERICAN then you have led a war to free a country from a dictator which you accomplished. That country and the others you help also punish gay people. In fact so does America itself (Marriage?), so get off your god damn high horses.
    Madonna is a great woman with a big heart for the kids in this country, im Gay and i dont like what they do to Gay people but sometimes things are bigger. The kids in that country need help and she has done A LOT to bring attention to that.
    Again all those saying "she should give her own money" well she has, a lot, a very lot, but she is a woman who works very hard for her money and has a famaily to think about.
    The Madonna hate is so boring, the woman is the Queen of Pop, she changed the face of music, video, fashion, style and business for women in this industry, she should be treated with some respect.



  61. 61

    Why doesnt she show support for her own country?



  62. 62

    I LOVE HER!!!!



  63. 63

    Re: MadonnaLive – Hahahaha. What a loser… to waste your time defending, and worshipping someone who doesn't give a rat's ass about you. Madonna's proven that she's more interested in staying relevant than anything else. You're buying right into what she wants. Loser.



  64. 64

    Madonna takes hundreds of millions of dollars out of countries all over the world every year from her fans.
    Madonna then gives a large portion of this hundreds of millions of dollars to America every year in the form of tax, and has done so for decades.
    Also due to Madonna, many American companies over the years (Warner for one example) have taken billions and billions of dollars from countries all over the world and put it into America in the form of tax.
    Why should Madonna raise more money for America? I'm happy that for the first time in nearly three deacdes, a country other than America will be making alot of money off one of Madonna's ideas.



  65. 65

    Re: caroaber – I'm not talking about what happend in the past, I'm talking about what's going on right now. I know history pretty well, thanks.

  66. @v@ says – reply to this

    It'll be the country stars again that help America, playing in some friendly rural corn field with Willie. That's another reason America supports its country music; and that's just not high profile enough for some.



  67. 67

    Actually this has been reported as false.



  68. 68

    she is the REAL & ONLY queen of Pop



  69. 69

    According to the RaisingMalawi website: This past weekend, reports circulated regarding a Raising Malawi benefit concert in Blantyre, Malawi. These reports are entirely false; Raising Malawi and Madonna have no plans to host such an event.
    Other sites, such as showbiz411, are ripping Perez a new one for always being inaccurate on his site.

    Re: crispycandance
    "I'm happy that for the first time in nearly three deacdes, a country other than America will be making alot of money off one of Madonna's ideas."
    Well, for one, she's not doing it, 2) if she did, I'm sure it wouldn't have been "her idea," and 3) when did she have this idea 3 decades ago?
