Madonna knows how to get her fans' attention and, when necessary, their support. The legendary pop singer asked her fans to contribute money for a cause close to her heart during her concert at Madison Square Garden in New York on Nov. 12.
The Material Girl took the stage to talk about the devastation Hurricane Sandy caused in parts of New Jersey and New York, which Madonna had visited last weekend.
"I went down to Rockaway Beach yesterday with my children, and we saw what was going on there, we saw the destruction," the 54-year-old mother of four told her concertgoers.
"It was really sad, but we also saw amazing acts of humanity. People sharing with other people, people working hard, cleaning houses, handing out food, blankets, giving love."
She then announced to the packed MSG venue that she had figured out a way to help -- by taking off her clothes. Stripping off her top to reveal the words "No Fear" across her back, Madge encouraged her audience to donate and even throw money on to the stage during her purposely slower-than-usual performance of "Like a Virgin."
"If you are going to look at the crack of my a--, you better raise some cash!" she yelled at her fans, who enthusiastically threw bills onto the stage.
