Madonna has a new project titled SecretProjectRevolution. Despite the title, Madonna’s latest venture is anything but a secret. She released a 17-minute film that she co-directed with Steven Klein expressing her commitment to ” inspire change in the world through artistic expression.” The film was the launching point of Art for Freedom, an “online global initiative to further freedom of expression… to respond, address and protest persecution around the world.”
Apparently, Madonna’s idea of protest and inspiring others is by covering Elliott Smith‘s “Between the Bars.” The pop icon performed the somber song at New York’s Gagosian Gallery. She was dragged onto stage by stylized prison guards and then sang the classic Smith tune.
