That seems to be the question floating around the world today, as we hear about Michael's inspiring effort to help incarcerated kids get their lives back on track. He's actually in Washington D.C. right now, meeting with a congressman about it!

Janie was brought to a shelter in LA as a stray on April 14th, having had been run over by a car and was seriously injured.
How do they know? She literally had a tire track across her back! She was scared and in pain, reluctant to let anyone help.
SO many people wanted to! The only problem is that she had a microchip, meaning the owners had 10 days to claim her before she could legally be rescued OR adopted, so the staff called the owners and even went to the registered address! NOBODY WANTED THIS CUTE PUPPY!
The loving and amazing staff had money pledged in case Janie needed surgery, but there was no foster home for her. They bent over backwards to find her one!
Against the odds, Janie was given a chance at a happy life, thanks to the dedication of the shelter's employees, as well as several concerned animal welfare workers. This was just some random dog, and the kindness of strangers saved her life — and gave her a new, comfortable one to boot!
It's stories like the one (above & below) that make us SO happy!
All around awesome human being Angelina Jolie added another notch to her humanitarian belt Thursday while at the Women in the World gala in NYC (above)!
Brad Pitt's future (current?!) wife delivered an inspiring, yet heartbreaking speech honoring Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani activist who was shot in the head by the Taliban simply because she wanted equal opportunity education for girls.
Angie has also donated $200,000 to an educational fund set up in Malala's name that will go towards funding various educational projects specifically for females.
It's a sad fact of the world that human beings are still oppressed because of various religious or cultural beliefs. We only hope that these blatant violations of human rights will be addressed and eradicated (somewhat, at least) in our lifetime!
Ch-ch-check out some more snaps of Angelina at the Women in the World gala (below) and then you MUST watch her tear-inducing telling of Malala's story …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

But had no idea Demi Lovato's trouble with illegal drugs and alcohol ran so deep!
In a new candid interview, the 21-year-old singer is speaking out about her past substance abuse issues, confessing she used to manipulate people (including a sober companion) to believe every front and lie she threw at them. She shared:
“I’m very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside."
And then Demi-corn dropped a maJOR coke bomb!
The former Disney starlet was so buried in her drug habits, she couldn't go an hour without doing cocaine!
