Madonna has given her thumbs-up to “Glee’s” upcoming episode featuring her music.
“I think Mr. Schuester is very cute,” Madonna said in a statement, referencing Matthew Morrisons’s “Glee” club leader/teacher character at McKinley High School.
“And I’m glad he’s doing such a good job empowering all the girls,” the Material Mom added.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, on April 20, “Glee” devotes their entire hour to Madonna songs in an episode titled, “The Power of Madonna.”
The episode follows Mr. Schuester as he expresses concern that the ladies of the glee club are being disrespected and bullied by the male members.
In order to give the girls confidence, Mr. Shue asks the glee club girls to tackle Madonna songs “in the hopes that the girls embrace Madonna’s strength, independence and confidence so that the guys will see the errors of their misogynistic ways,” FOX said in a statement.
Among the tracks performed on the episode are “Express Yourself,” “Like A Prayer” and “Vogue,” the latter track which fans were able to watch during a commercial break from Tuesday night’s spring season premiere of “Glee.”
The “Vogue” clip, starring Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, Amber Riley as Mercedes and Chris Colfer as Kurt, has already become an Internet sensation, as a fitting tribute to Madonna’s original clip.
