Somewhere in the English countryside, in a stately manor home, Madonna is not weeping. In a statement to Us, Madonna said that the all-Madonna "Glee" episode was "brilliant on every level."
"I completely appreciated the layers of irony, especially when all those macho boys sang 'What It Feels Like For A Girl,'" she says, referring to a scene where Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) tries to teach the No Directions boys a lesson about misogyny by leading them in the song about female empowerment.
Madonna said the entire cast was "amazing" and "so talented," but she had no problem picking favorites. And why should she? She's Madonna. "I especially loved Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and Kurt Hummel's (Chris Colfer) characters," she says.
Unsurprisingly, the long-reigning Queen of Pop appreciated "all the messages about boys being respectful to girls."
"Ryan Murphy did a great job bringing all the elements together," she says. "I wish I went to a high school like that."
Don't we all?

Thumbs way up from Madonna -- and Lourdes, too!
The Material Girl caught a sneak peek the upcoming "Power of Madonna" episode of Fox's Glee, in which McKinley High's Glee Club reinterprets Madonna's classic songs of female empowerment.
Madonna, 51, tells UsMagazine.com exclusively what she thought of the tribute:
"I thought the Madonna episode of Glee was brilliant on every level. The dialogue and the entire script was genius. I completely appreciated the layers of irony, especially when all those macho boys sang 'What It Feels Like For A Girl.'
I also loved the fantastic performances of 'Vogue,' 'Express Yourself' and all the messages about the boys being respectful to girls.
The entire cast was amazing. They're all so talented. I especially loved Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and Kurt Hummel's (Chris Colfer) characters. [Show creator] Ryan Murphy did a great job bringing all these elements together.
[Daughter] Lola loved the show too. I wish I went to a high school like that...If only."
"The Power of Madonna" episode of Glee airs this Tuesday on Fox.
