After an auction at which her Rebel Heart Tour dress was auctioned for the princessly sum of $150K and at which she pledged to remarry ex-husband Sean Penn, Madonna performed an hour-long gig in Miami early Saturday that included a cover of “Send in the Clowns,” rarely performed tracks “Like It or Not,” “I'm So Stupid,” “Beautiful Stranger,” “Easy Ride,” and “American Life,” as well as smash hits “Don't Tell Me,” “Express Yourself” and “Holiday.”

But maybe the biggest surprise was a slow-burn take on Britney Spears's “Toxic,” performed in front of anti-Trump projections. She also tried her hand at stand-up comedy and banter, telling jokes that attendees Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle (!) must have found especially painful. The groaner quality of the jokes was part of her shtick, but she should shtick to singing. [Cymbal crash.]

The memorable spectacle raised $7.5 million for Raising Malawi, Madonna's personal charity established to help the African nation from which she adopted two children. $10,000 of that came from a fan who spontaneously offered her the bread in exchange for a kiss. (No tongue.)

Madonna even tried her hand feet at some tapdancing for the first time ever, allowed a lucky fan to hold the mic for her finale, gave one reluctant dude a lap dance, berated the audience and graciously thanked everyone for their help.

Seems like a good time was had by all, and that included Courtney Love (no compacts were thrown), Leonardo DiCaprio, Dave Chappelle, Petra Nemcova, Bethenny Frankel, emcee James Corden and Ariana Grande, who gamely modeled Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour dress and danced with her idol.

More On Richard Corman's 66 Unearthed Madonna Polaroids — And Buy His Limited New Book! Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.39.27 PM(All images by Richard Corman)

Richard Corman has granted an interview to Vogue, in which he reminisces about the time he took 66 (and there are probably a few others out there) Polaroids of Madonna one day in the early '80s, with an eye toward helping his mother cast her in a film:

“She was wearing white lace leggings under torn jeans . . . a jean jacket with graffiti on the back and the sleeves cut off, with these rubber bangles, more like friendship bracelets, that she would give away to friends. Her makeup was just so brash—these red lips, and she created that mole on the side of her face,” he says. “You’d say now that it was so chic—you walk into Opening Ceremony, Urban Outfitters, and this is what everyone is wearing—but she was a visionary. It was so bohemian and gritty and down-to-earth. She was going to vintage clothing shops. She had great taste—and you can’t teach that. And the dress, I swear she paid $2 for the gown, and it was so exquisite.”

Even more importantly, Corman's next Madonna book is on sale now — only 500 copies of the most limited edition will be available, so act fast and click here.

If you're a Madonna fan, you've probably read about the upcoming Emmy and the Breakfast Club, a documentary that promises to air unheard songs performed by Madonna 35 years ago when she was involved with Dan Gilroy and living with him in an abandoned synagogue in Queens.
