Madonna's Beautiful Words To Ellen Before She Came Out

Here's a little known fact: did you know that Madonna gave Ellen words of encouragement before she publicly came out of the closet?

It's true, and Madonna's words were beautiful and they helped empower Ellen to be confident in who she was — to ignore the pangs of uncertainty of whether or not people were going to accept her. The important thing was that Ellen not deprive the world of who she truly was.

In this clip from Ellen's interview with Madonna, Madonna actually doesn't say a word — she just confirms everything that Ellen relays to the world.

We are moved. Are U?

P.S. We're sure nobody can boo her for saying these things!

Justin Bieber Visits Kids In Japan, Tells Them It Will Get Better

justin bieber visits kids in japan to show support

The Biebs continues to impress us with his involvement in Japan!

Earlier this month, we were VERY pleased to learn that Justin Bieber was going to continue his Japan tour, despite his crew reportedly flat-out refusing to participate out of fear of nuclear radiation and future earthquakes.

Now, Justin is leaving a positive mark on Japan in another way - by visiting Japanese children and reassuring them that things will be all right.

Here's what he said to a group of Japanese children, many of whom were affected by the March 11 tsunami:

"Things can get better and things will get better. There are only good times to come."

And here's what one child said to Justin, reading from a card that the group wrote to him:

"We have friends who lost their family and their homes, some have left our school. The town is covered with wreckage and it will take a long time to get back to normal. But we will work hard for this. Please give us courage through your music."

Truly heartwarming! We think it's wonderful that Justin took the time to meet with these children and show them support, especially since they clearly look up to him so much!

Thanks for being an inspiration, Justin! We're very impressed!
