Welcome To The U.N. Ms. Ciccone

It’s Madonna3.0. She cares about the world, and doesn’t give in to material things anymore.

Madonna has increasingly has been showing interest in world matters — will co-host a gala for the United Nations Association in Pasadena later this week.

Madonna is listed as a committee member for a United Nations 60th anniversary celebration in Pasadena on Oct. 22, according to the group’s Web site; Actor Morgan Freeman is the honorary Chairman of the event, which is being billed as “supporting the UN vision” including “keeping peace throughout the world” and “developing friendly relations among nations.”

“Madonna’s not just the ambitious blonde with the cone bra anymore,” says a source. “She’s evolved and really cares about world issues.”

The timing of this little United Nations gala couldn’t be more convenient. Madonna is in the middle of her biggest promotion blitz for her new documentary and forthcoming album “Confessions On A Dance Floor.” The British tabloid The Sun has heard it and claims that it’s “an hour of pure electronic dance/pop heaven. I can’t find a weak track, and I’m confident the album will be hailed a masterpiece on its November 14 release.”
