Amy Schumer is continuing her streak of doing everything we would do if a magic fairy came down and granted us the wish of mega-fame (after years of hard work, of course). She tells it like it is about weight, steals the spotlight from Kimye, befriends LeBron James, blasts every single Hollywood double standard... And now, she's slated to open for Madonna during the New York stops of her Rebel Heart Tour.

When making the announcement today, Schumer showed off a #TBT video we bet lurks in the home VHS collection of many a proud parent of children who grew up during, well, the past three decades. Of course, the clip of young Amy singing "Like a Prayer" is also an adorable hint of the comedian's future stage endeavors. We just wish we could've heard even more of her belting out the classic.

Schumer will be bringing her schtick to her Madgesty's shows at Madison Square Garden on September 16 and 17, and to Brooklyn's Barclays Center on September 19. Will she perform "Like a Prayer" onstage, too? Will she get Madonna to join her for a rendition of "Milk Milk Lemonade"? We can't wait to find out.
