"Express Yourself" is not just one of Madonna's hit songs, it is also the rallying cry for her new project Art for Freedom.
She is inviting fans to submit original video, music, poetry and photography to fight oppression, intolerance and complacency through art.
Madonna told Anderson, ""I'm encouraging other people, whether they're professionals or not, to use their creativity to express themselves, to get a conversation going, to get the party started."
Two of the sisters of the driver killed in a hail of gunfire after a high-speed chase from the White House to U.S. Capitol talked exclusively to Anderson Cooper. Miriam Carey’s sisters, Valarie and Amy, both said she did experience post-partum depression with psychosis, but was not battling schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Their sister’s one-year-old daughter was in the car during Thursday’s chase, but was unharmed in the chaos. Both sisters said Miriam was a “nurturing mother” and wonderful person. They also told Anderson they didn’t know she was in Washington and are still in “shock” over the incident. They said they have a lot of questions about what happened to Miriam. A lot of things “just don’t add up,” said Amy. In this exclusive interview, Carey’s sisters share their fond memories of her, give details on her mental state and vow to seek answers to why “she’s not alive to be with her family.”
Watch part two of the interview:
Police in New York City are seeking witnesses who may have information on the confrontation between bikers and an SUV driver that was caught on tape. The wife of the SUV driver released a statement today saying her husband took the actions he did because he feared for the safety of his family. However, while trying to get away from the bikers, the SUV driver struck three of them, seriously injuring one man. Criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos, and former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin join the panel.
A new analysis by the New York Times says there are millions of poor Americans stuck in a health care limbo. Their income too high to qualify for Medicaid, but too low to qualify for federal help in the new health exchanges under Obamacare. Dr. Drew Pinsky joins the panel to discuss what this means.
New questions about the investigation into the shooting near Capitol Hill. During a news conference authorites said they do not belive the driver's actions before the shooting were a mistake. So what do investigators know, and what are the next steps in determining her motivation? CNN's Joe Johns and Deborah Feyerick join the panel with the latest information.
