Say what you will about Madonna. This lady is always up for a good cause.
The music legend took to the Twickenham Stadium stage in London on Saturday for the Chime for Change: the Sound of Change live concert. The fundraiser, thrown by the Chime for Change organization, is dedicated to the promotion of education and awareness of injustices towards girls.
Madge gave a moving ten minute speech in which she announced the added efforts of her Ray of Light Foundation in support of girls’ education in Pakistan and Afghanistan. She also said:

As more and more details emerge surrounding the lives of Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, it appears that Russia may have had very good reason to ask the United States authorities to investigate the now-deceased older brother back in 2011…and explains why her mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, may be so adamant about denying her children's involvement in the horrific acts of terrorism!
According to new reports, authorities in Russia recorded a conversation between Tamerlan and his mom "vaguely discussing" Jihad, and although there was no mention of attacking the United States, they did talk about him going to Pakistan to join up with militant groups!
Furthermore, Zubeidat was also revealed to be sending text messages about

You go girl!
While Madonna has been busy attending the schools she helped build in Malawi, she now wants to help girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan get an education, and she's doing it by auctioning off her Fernand Leger Trois femmes à la table rouge painting in order to raise $$$ for the Ray of Light Foundation.
Her Majesty bought Leger's painting back in 1990 at Sotheby's, and considering that it's worth a cool $5-$7 million now, she felt that handing it off to the Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale would be AH-MAYZING because she can help girls get their learn on.

Laughter A pet is the great medicine!
When Dave Sharp began suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after encountering two near-death experiences in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, he found peace from his six month old puppy.
"There are 18 veterans that commit suicide every day in America. And there's an animal that is put to sleep every 8 seconds."
So Dave started this ultra fabulous program called "Pets To Vets" - which pairs war vets with a companion.
Just watch to see how grateful the vets, and the pets, are for this program!

Although the US government didn't discover that Osama bin Laden was hiding in a well-guarded house in Pakistan until sometime this past year, everyone should have just been listening to the NBC/ABC comedy Scrubs, because apparently, they've known since 2007!
Check out this clip from the sitcom, featuring "Janitor", played by Neil Flynn, telling Zach Braff exactly where to look in the episode His Story IV (above)!
We bet if the show were still on the air, Zach's character would be feeling pretty stoopid right now!
What do U think?? Coincidence or some bizarre prophecy?
