Amy Schumer Recounts Madonna Lap Dance

February 23, 2024 - Music


Have you even really lived until you’ve gotten a lap dance from Madonna? Just ask Amy Schumer.

In a new interview with The Associated Press, the comedian hilariously recounts getting onstage with the Queen of Pop during her ongoing Celebration Tour.

“I did not know I was going up on stage, that is the truth,” she told the interviewer and Life & Beth co-star Michael Cera. “An hour before the show, I was backstage hanging with some of her team and a choreographer approached me and… I thought it was a joke! And then I realized, ‘Oh, I’m getting onstage with her and I’m getting a lap dance.’”

Lap dances — and similar sensual choreography — are a key element of Madonna’s latest tour, as are onstage celebrity appearances. Before Schumer, the Queen of Pop trotted out stars such as Diplo, Donatella Versace and FKA twigs during the ballroom segment of the show. Madonna invited Schumer onstage during her show at Madison Square Garden in New York on Jan. 23. The two stars judged Madge’s backup dancers as they strutted to “Vogue”; eventually, the strutting turned into grinding as Madonna wrapped her legs around one dancer while Schumer’s face was temporarily frozen in shock.

Amused and intrigued by Schumer’s story, Cera quipped, “You needed a choreographer for that?” In response, Schumer replied, “They just want to make sure that, first of all, there’s consent. And also that you’re not gonna, like, freak out because you’re onstage at The Garden, you know?”

Of course, this isn’t Madonna’s time in lap-dance territory — who can forget her sultry shimmy for Maluma back in 2022? — but Amy Schumer can now join her in that arena. “Two times, not a big deal!” she teased. “But it was amazing, and God I just love her so much. Everybody needs to see this show.”

The Celebration Tour — which has hit a steady pace after a particularly rocky start that saw the production postponed due to the “Hung Up” singer’s hospitalization — is set to continue through the next two months, stopping in major cities such as Las Vegas (March 1-2), Los Angeles (March 4-11) and Houston (March 28-29) before concluding with five shows at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City (April 20-26).
