Madge kicked off her 'Rebel Heart' tour in the Canadian city this week

Madonna began her world tour in Montreal this week (September 9), inviting Diplo onstage before joining Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler during his DJ set in the Canadian city a day later.

Madonna’s ‘Rebel Heart’ tour kicked off on Wednesday, with Diplo (who was a support act at the show) being spanked onstage by the singer and then handed a banana. Scroll below to see footage of the moment.

On Thursday night, Diplo and Madonna were brought out by Butler during his appearance under the name DJ Window 98 at the Phi Centre in Montreal. See a photo below.

Meanwhile, Madonna recently denied that artistry decreases with age, stating in a new interview that there’s no “expiration date for being creative”.

The star compared herself to Cubist painter Pablo Picasso in a recent interview with Billboard, stating: “He kept painting and painting until the day he died. Why? Because I guess he felt inspired to do so.

“Life inspired him, so he had to keep expressing himself, and that’s how I feel.”

She added: “I don’t think there’s a time, a date, an expiration date for being creative. I think you go until you don’t have any more to say.”
