    PUSSY RIOT THANK GREEN DAY, MADONNA IN NEW VIDEO

    The group released a 90-second video moments ago showing the remaining members of the collective unfurling a massive banner, thanking Madonna, Bjork, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Green Day for their solidarity while rappelling down a building and defiantly declaring, "The fight for freedom is an endless battle that is bigger than life!" Then — in a loaded political statement — they burn a photo of Vladimir Putin.
