Madonna and Amy Schumer teamed up for some laughs at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, showing once again that the comedienne can make fun of herself. It’s one of many reasons her popularity has risen over the past year, giving feminism a positive and hilarious side.
Amy opened for the pop mega-star when the Rebel Heart Tour hit New York, and then was invited onstage for a performance of “Unapologetic B***h,” according to the New York Daily News. The laughs began once more when the 57-year-old singer had Schumer bend over and spanked her a few times, followed by a few playful kicks with her high-heel-clad foot, and a quick twerk behind her.
Madonna is showing her fans that she still has shock value, even in the wake of Miley Cyrus’ antics. The “material girl” upstaged the former Hannah Montana actress even without taking her clothes off and riding a wrecking ball.
The singer followed up the song with a comedic pause, with Madonna calling Amy Schumer her “unapologetic b***h of the evening” and awarding her with two prizes for her cooperation. The first was a sock puppet, with Madonna struggling to get the whole thing on Schumer’s arm. Then she used the sock puppet like a ventriloquist to deliver a quick joke.
“Hi, how are you, Amy? So good to see you. B***h, I’m a sock.”
Clearly the joke was meant to promote Madonna’s controversial new song, “B***h, I’m Madonna.” Schumer got a good laugh out of it alongside the singer, but the act wasn’t over. She handed the comedienne a banana and said, “You know what to do with this, right? There are so many things you can do with a banana. Am I right?”
At the singer’s insistence, Amy reached behind her and mimicked a sex act.
What fans might not know about the relationship Madonna and Amy Schumer have is that when the Trainwreck star was a child, she made a video of herself singing “Like a Prayer.” The singer has been one of her favorites for a long time, and on Wednesday evening, she shared the stage and even let the pop star make a few jokes at her expense.
This may have been a good way to help Schumer get over the shooting of three women at the premiere showing of her acclaimed comedy debut. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the event hit her hard enough to get her supporting her political cousin, Senator Chuck Schumer, in his speech on gun violence.
Thanks to Madonna, Amy Schumer has had a chance to get herself and her fans laughing again.
