Madonna brought her eye-popping MDNA Tour to L.A.’s Staples Center on Wednesday night, where she dedicated a song to Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani child activist shot in the head and neck on Tuesday by a masked member of the Taliban.
Dressed in a leather skirt and black beret, the music icon took a break from the evening’s theatrics to tell the sold-out crowd of 18,000 that it was time “to have our serious chat.”
“This made me cry,” Madonna said. “The 14-year-old schoolgirl who wrote a blog about going to school. The Taliban stopped her bus and shot her. Do you realize how sick that is?”
“Support education! Support women!” she shouted, to the crowd’s cheers of approval.
