Amy Schumer Poses as Madonna Circa 'Truth or Dare'

The Amy Schumer-Madonna lovefest continues. First, the Queen of Pop tapped the Trainwreck writer/star to open her three New York-area shows this fall. Now, Schumer is posing like Madonna in a photo shoot for Empire film magazine.

One shot features two dapper dudes in tuxes leaning into an elegant, cleavage-baring Amy. It's a fairly direct homage to an iconic Steven Meisel pic taken during a photo shoot for her 1991 documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare (though Madonna bared significantly more cleavage).

The other pic is of Amy, finger in mouth, reacting to a man who's unzipped his pants in front of her - a pose Madge copped during a separate Meisel photoshoot related to Truth or Dare (and which appeared on the cover of The Advocate). That picture, incidentally, found Madonna in the same outfit she wore on the cover of her 'Vogue' single. Meisel also contributed to Madonna's Sex coffee-table book.

Check out the swoon-worthy pics, and check out Schumer opening for Madonna on Sept. 16, 17 and 19.

Madonna: It's just the beginning for streaming service Tidal

Madonna, who co-owns Tidal with Jay Z, Beyonce and others, says it's just the beginning for the streaming service that's had some troubles since its launch in March.

'It's just the beginning, so we're working out a lot of kinks and hopefully we're going to build something unique and amazing that's going to attract a lot of people,' the 56-year-old singer said in a recent interview.

Tidal, which offers a basic subscription for $10 and a high-quality audio one for $20, hasn't made a splash like its announcement did a few months ago, when Rihanna, Kanye West, Daft Punk, Nicki Minaj, Jack White and others stood onstage in solidarity along with Madonna, Beyonce and Jay Z.

Since then, Tidal announced a family plan and discount for students. The company also lost its interim CEO last month.

'It's important that people understand we didn't create Tidal, we didn't put this together, we didn't all join forces because we're broke and we want more money. The idea is we want to support other artists and we want people to understand this is our heart, this is our work, and we want people to recognize that and we want other artists to have a chance,' Madonna said.

'We live in a society now where everybody just expects everything to be for free, but you don't get a house for free; you have to pay somebody to build it,' she added.

Other artist-owners of Tidal include Arcade Fire, Alicia Keys, Usher, Chris Martin, Calvin Harris, deadmau5, Jason Aldean and J. Cole.
