Madonna bares butt to raise cash for Sandy victims
Melbourne: Madonna raised 60,000 dollars for charity by exposing her butt onstage during her show in New York City this week.
The 54-year-old singer encouraged those watching her to donate to victims of the recent hurricane Sandy - which recently hit the Caribbean and US, causing billions of dollars of damage and leaving many homeless - by throwing their cash onstage, a leading daily has reported.
She told the crowd at the city`s Madison Square Garden venue: "I`m showing [my] naked ass for Hurricane Sandy victims."
A person in attendance at the hurricane benefit told a leading daily: ``One guy threw a $20 bill, and Madonna threw it back and said she wanted hundreds. She yelled, “Is that all my ass is worth?”
Front Row VIP’s saw more than they were expecting of the 54-year-old singer, one said: ``I was sitting in the first row and when Madonna did a split in a thong it was a Sharon Stone ‘Basic Instinct’ moment!``
Fans also had the opportunity to buy $2,500 ‘Ultimate VIP Packages’ to her ``MDNA`` tour but had to sign wavers that insisted they would not ‘wonder off in any way`` or ‘seek out Madonna or her crew.’
The agreement also included that they were ``not to engage in any illegal or inappropriate activities`` or ``acts that are considered disturbing.``
