Madonna heureuse avec son épisode de Glee.
Saturday April 17, 2010
POP superstar Madonna has given the upcoming Power of Madonna episode of Fox’s Glee the big thumbs up.
The Holiday hitmaker says she was pleased to see McKinley High’s Glee Club reinterpret her classic songs of female empowerment.
“I thought the Madonna episode of Glee was brilliant on every level,” the 51-year-old said in a statement to Us Weekly magazine.
“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.
Recent reports claimed Madge had “no idea” what Glee is until producers approached her about using her songs on the program.
“Madonna doesn’t have a TV and has no idea what Glee is,” a source said earlier this week.
“The show did ask her if she wanted to make an appearance in the much-hyped Madonna episode. She said ‘no thanks’ and, to be honest, she would rather they sing an Elton John song than butcher one of hers.”
Madonna will make over $100,000 in royalties from the Glee episode that contains her material. Not that she needs the money.
