Madonna and Schumer have collaborated together in the past. In October, Madonna opened for Schumer at a performance in Madison Square Garden to try and encourage fans to vote for the former Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The year before, Schumer opened for Madonna at the same venue.
Earlier this month, Madonna had some slight difficulties getting a package delivered to her Portugal address when FedEx refused to believe it was really her.
