Madonna Shows Off Toned Butt, Twerks Onstage With Ariana Grande at Malawi Benefit Show

She’s still got it! Madonna twerked onstage with Ariana Grande at a Raising Malawi benefit concert in Miami Beach on Friday, December 2, where she brought in a whopping $7.5 million for the African nation.

The “Vogue” singer, 58, kept pace with Grande, 23, as the pair shook their derrieres at the audience; Madonna’s short skirt barely covered her bum as she strutted her stuff onstage and even took Grande’s blazer off at one point.

“Rehearsing with La Grande backstage before Tears of a Clown @artbasel for @raisingmalawi,” Madonna captioned a behind-the-scenes Instagram photo of the pair trying out their dance moves prior to the show. “Thank you everyone for your support!!”

Grande similarly shared her anticipation over the epic pairing with a mirror selfie of herself wearing an ensemble from the pop icon’s own tour wardrobe.

“Beyond excited to support @raisingmalawi and shimmy with my queen @madonna tonight (in her very own Rebel Heart tour outfit 🙈) @artbasel,” she captioned the image.

Later in the night, the “Side to Side” singer posted a clip of the pair bantering onstage with the caption: “’Tonight we say yes’ @madonna @raisingmalawi ♡ of all the reasons I live for / adore you, your heart is what I am most inspired by. Thank you for having me be a part of such an important evening and for giving giving giving as much as you do. ♡”

As part of the benefit Friday night, Madonna auctioned off that outfit plus other significant personal items, including three black-and-white photos from her 1985 wedding to ex-husband Sean Penn. The trio of pictures sold for $230,000, according to the Associated Press.

Penn, 56, was in attendance at the star-studded event. He bid on several items during the auction portion of the night, handcuffed Madonna and crawled through her legs at one point in an attempt to draw higher bids.

“For once, he’s not the one being arrested,” Madonna joked, according to AP.
