Between June 17 and June 18, Madonna dropped a star-studded new video for "Bitch I'm Madonna" and announced her special opening act for three of her Rebel Heart Tour shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan: comedian Amy Schumer.

The newly-released video for "Bitch I'm Madonna" premiered on June 17 through Tidal, Jay Z's controversial music streaming service. The colorful mini-flick co-stars Jay Z's wife Beyoncé, Madonna's producer Diplo, comedian Chris Rock, designer Alexander Wang and other superstar music peeps including Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Rita Ora and Kanye West. You can see the video here.

Meanwhile, Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour begins on September 9 in Montreal, Quebec (for a full list of tour dates check out Madonna.com/tour). For Madonna's shows in NYC (September 16 and 17, Madison Square Garden) and Brooklyn (September 19, Barclays Center), she's enlisted Amy Schumer, who joked on Twitter that she "auditioned" for Madonna by sending in a tape of herself performing one of the singer's hits when she was a child.

Schumer is also starring in her cinematic debut, Trainwreck – directed by Judd Apatow – which opens July 17, 2015, and her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, returns to television on June 23.
