It was a night of toasting new friendships and old flames.
As Madonna performed to a packed house in Vancouver on Wednesday night new pal Amy Schumer was in the audience standing right next to her ex-husband Sean Penn.
The 57-year-old Queen of Pop interrupted her show to have a shot with Schumer as 55-year-old Sean stood by.
Trainwreck star Amy, 34, was standing right next to Penn near the front of the stage as Madge performed her racy show.It was just last month that the comedienne realized a lifelong dream by opening for Madonna with her standup comedy act.
And Schumer proved she really is a fan of the Like A Virgin singer as she attended another concert, this time simply as an admirer.However, the two clearly have formed a bond as Madonna chose to imbibe some firewater in a celebratory toast during her show.
But perhaps more significant was the presence of the Mystic River actor, who was married to the pop queen from 1985 to 1989. To say they’ve had a volatile relationship would be an understatement.
But it seems that Madonna is able to see the funny side of her rocky first marriage to Penn, as she told an audience last month in Brooklyn about a recent encounter with the actor.
Sitting astride a stool, clutching a ukulele, she mused over Penn coming to see her show at Madison Square Garden. The candid chat was captured by Madonna TV, as she explained it was the second time he has watched her show there – and the previous time was during their marriage and caused an argument.
‘I did a show at Madison Square Garden the other night if you heard about it. And my ex-husband was there! Could you imagine?’ she said incredulously, to the crowd at the Barclays Center.
‘He had been at my show 30 years earlier when I was at Madison Square Garden, and he was very upset with me for wearing a costume that was too revealing. That’s not a lie!’ she added, which prompted laughs from the audience.
‘Anyway, after the show he wrote me a letter and said he finally appreciates my art, ‘ the star confessed with a coy smile.
To rousing applause, the twice-divorced star concluded: ‘And that is what I have to say about marriage, OK? Thirty f**king years later.’
Sean was spotted looking relaxed and adoringly at his ex-wife last week as he sat front centre stage as Madge performed True Blue on her second night at the iconic NYC venue.
