Madonna Gives Glee a Thumbs Up

Madonna has given an enthusiastic thumbs up to Glee, the poker-hot TV series which will feature an episode themed around the Material Girl's compositions.
"I think Mr. Schuester is very cute," said Madonna in a statement about, referencing glee club coach Will Schuester, played by Matt Morrison. "I'm glad he's doing such a good job empowering all the girls."
The Madonna ep of the show, titled "Glee: Power of Madonna," is set to air next Tuesday, April 20, on Fox, and will span the Material Girl’s deep and expansive pop music catalog, including "Express Yourself," "Like a Virgin," "Like a Prayer" and the more recent "4 Minutes." What, no "Justify My Love?" What about "Vogue?"
In the episode, Schuester assigns the girls in glee club the task of choosing Madonna songs to perform. The network issued a statement saying that Schuester hopes that the girls embrace Madonna's strength, independence and confidence so that the guys will see the errors of their misogynistic ways. Will the girls of Glee be sporting cone-tit bustiers in the ultimate display of girl power? We somehow doubt it!
A seven-song soundtrack, also titled "Glee: Power of Madonna," is scheduled for release on April 20, as well, in conjunction with the episode.
What's your favorite era of Madonna? The Material Girl period? The Evita era? The Sex-obsessed season? The faux British accent phase?
