Madonna’s Reaction

Getting a thumbs up from Madonna isn't easy. She's a tough woman to please! But she was not only impressed with Glee's All Madonna episode, she said it was "brilliant!"


"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," said the Queen of Pop.


Madonna continued, "The entire cast was amazing. They're all so talented. I especially loved Sue Sylvester and Kurt Hummel's characters. Ryan Murphy did a great job bringing all these elements together. Lola loved the show too. I wish I went to a high school like that...If only."
