We can't wait to see this!

Salim Gauwloos — better known as Slam — was one of the dancers on Madonna's Blond Ambition world tour back in 1991, and he even infamously danced in her iconic video for Vogue and starred in her Truth Or Dare documentary that year.

But he saved the juiciest part of the story for 2016!

The dancer, now 25 years removed from his iconic work with the Queen of Pop, is taking part in a brand new documentary called Strike A Pose that is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, and in it, he's ready to discuss his time with Madonna, his experiences as a backup dancer, and — surprisingly — how he went through that entire tour while HIV positive!

As we would later learn, Slam was one of three dancers on Madonna's tour — the other two being Carlton Wilborn and Gabriel Trupin — who was living with HIV during the 1991 tour and documentary shoot.

And now, Slam is opening up about that experience for the very first time!

While promoting the documentary, Slam told POZ about his HIV diagnosis, which he says he contracted four years before dancing with Madge:

The gorgeous gal confessed she was having a tough time coping, saying:

"I have to say, you know, when I lost Paul, I went through about a year of just being like an animal. Like, what could I do physically to just get my mind off of existentialism, get my mind off how transient life is and how we just come here and we can disappear at any moment?"

The actress explained that one of the things she did to take her mind off the tragic loss of her Fast & Furious costar was to go under the influence of a psychedelic plant called Ayahuasca.

The 37-year-old said her experience with the drug actually made her realize she was jealous that the late actor died before she did, adding:
