Madonna performed a live version of this song as part of her 2001 Drowned World Tour set list, calling it her "brand new song". Madonna recorded a studio version in preparation for the tour, along with the rest of the set list. Whilst most of the other studio recorded set-list songs have been made available online, the studio version of this song remains unleaked. The track is also listed in the Warner/Chappell Music database with Madonna again credited as sole composer.

So, in what marks a strange twist in this tragic story, ‘Ray Of Light‘ icon Madonna has ‘honored’ Malala with a strip tease carried out during Wednesday’s showing of her ‘MDNA Tour’ in LA. An act, which has now been billed as distasteful. In response to the strip tease, users of social networking site Twitter took to the medium to weigh in.
I respect that Madonna supports Malala but a striptease in support of a girl who supports education is so irrelevant. twitter.com/HibahAqsa/stat…
Madonna wont be able to identify Pakistan on the map of the world, but she dedicate a song for #Malala? Shows the Power of US backed media
Classless as ever:Madonna(Gramma GaGa) dedicates onstage striptease to Pakistani girl shot by Taliban bit.ly/WgA01q #p2 #tcot
@mehrtarar Posting a prayer and taking your clothes off are two very different things. Esp when one plays into Taliban rhetoric.
Em, Pakistanis cross at MADONNA for her “inappropriate” nod to Malala Yousafzai, get a fucking life and try to focus on real problems?
Madonna honored Malala in the way she knew best. Lets appreciate that and not get caught up with trivialities. Thank you #Madonna
Madonna is one product of the American mentality of “Support it by stripping”. Anything is somehow related to your junk. #Absurd #Malala
So what do you think?
In the clip, she actually spoke a pretty heart-felt speech about the girl and about how lucky we are to live in a country where we’re free to express ourselves. The very same reason she was shot! You guys can criticize her all you want but at least she’s taking a stand… And guess who else she’s pissing off more than any of you guys by making this bold statement in the way that she did… The very same people that shot this girl for speaking out in what she believes in… The Taliban!

Madonna brought her eye-popping MDNA Tour to L.A.'s Staples Center on Wednesday night, where she dedicated a song to Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani child activist shot in the head and neck on Tuesday by a masked member of the Taliban.
Dressed in a leather skirt and black beret, the music icon took a break from the evening's theatrics to tell the sold-out crowd of 18,000 that it was time "to have our serious chat."
"This made me cry," Madonna said. "The 14-year-old schoolgirl who wote a blog about going to school. The Taliban stopped her bus and shot her. Do you realize how sick that is?"
"Support education! Support women!" she shouted, to the crowd's cheers of approval.
Yousafzai, one of the most outspoken and influential advocates for girls' rights to education in the Middle East, remains unconscious in a hospital since the shooting. Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said of the assassination attempt, "Let this be a lesson," and pledged that the Taliban would try again to kill her should she survive her injuries.
Later in the show, Madonna performed a striptease, during which she turned her back to the audience to reveal the name "Malala" stenciled across it.
"This song is for you, Malala," she said, then launched into "Human Nature."
