Michael Moore's controversial documentary FAHRENHEIT 9/11 has been given another big boost - the queen of pop, Madonna, is telling her fans they have to see it.

Moore went backstage at one of Madonna's MADISON SQUARE GARDEN shows in New York on Wednesday (16JUN04) to thank her for her support after hearing the singer praise his film to the masses.

She urged fans during the concert to go and see the provocative new anti-George W Bush film, stating she seen the documentary and it "really affected" her.

Moore screened the film to a crowd of celebrities and members of the press on Monday (14JUN04) at New York's Ziegfeld Theater.

Madonna told tans, "I don't think I've ever cried so hard at a movie in my life and I'm sure I still have a lot to learn from it.

"Not only is it inspiring and educating, but it's proof that people can make a difference, that we can make a difference."
