Madonna skates with entourage to avoid falling

Madonna doesn’t just fall over.

Her Madgesty went to the roller-skating rink in Central Park on Wednesday night — where she was surrounded by an entourage to make sure she didn’t eat it.

So protected from everything as common as gravity, she hosted a party with Nile Rodgers at his immersive roller-skating rink, The DiscOasis.

Apparently it was the disco legend who enlisted Madonna’s escort team to keep her from “breaking her ass”.

Rodgers, who produced Madonna’s “Like A Virgin,” said he was under pressure from friends to skate at the party and replied, “I’ll only skate if M skates.”

But that took some conviction. He told his crew that Madonna, 63, had some concerns and asked, “What if I bust my ass? I don’t want to bust my ass in front of people.”

And like a gentleman, Rodgers replied, “If she does, we’re all going to break, so we’re all going to fall.”

And they went to the ice rink. Madonna – with the help of Rodgers and a few friends – even made it to the ice rink twice!

We heard a snarky fan joke, “What about those moves from her ‘Sorry’ video?” In the 2005 song, Madonna is in a leotard dancing effortlessly around a roller skating rink, but it’s clear that the video was just smoke and mirrors.

Outside the rink, she and Rodgers danced in a VIP section where Questlove played tunes including Beyoncé and Madonna’s “Break My Soul: Queens Remix”. Madge’s children were also on stage and she danced with son David Banda, who was a hit with the public.

Meanwhile, Sherri Shepherd was there skating like a pro and celebrating her move to New York for her new fall talk show. “There’s nothing quite like skating and feeling the wind in your wig,” she joked on an Instagram video.

Shepherd didn’t make it VIP to actually talk to Madonna, “but I did plant a seed for her to get on my show.”

Madonna and Rodgers threw the bash to celebrate her upcoming album, “Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones” remix collection.

“I want to thank you all for coming to support not only DiscOasis, but also my new record, which is really my old record, but it’s so old, it’s new,” she said.

Party Mayor Eric Adams was surprisingly not there, but his Senior Executive Director of nightlight Ariel Palitz was glinting. Christian Siriano, Kendall Werts, Jeremy O. Harris, Gitano’s James Gardner and Leigh Lezark were also there.
