New episodes of Glee return tomorrow night with a new ep titled Hell-O (which some lucky folks in LA got to see in full over the weekend at a public premiere screening event that was held at The Grove outdoor shopping center on Saturday evening) and while we are surely excited for that event, we need to also get excited for next week’s new ep of Glee as well. As y’all might already know, next week’s ep is titled The Power of Madonna and will feature all Madonna songs (this particular episode will also come with its very own soundtrack). A few Glee castmembers are featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of TV Guide magazine this week … each of them is decked out in a different incarnation of Madonna. Here is our first look at the cover of TV Guide and some quotes from the accompanying interview:
On her early memories of Madonna, Lea Michele remembers attending Madonna’s Drowned World Tour three times and styling her hair like Miss Ciccone when attending Bat Mitzvahs. Matthew Morrison recalls: “I wasn’t a big fan of Madonna; never got into it.” “As a heterosexual guy, she didn’t have much impact on my life.” Chris Colfer: “I was not allowed to listen to Madonna when I was younger.” “My mother and grandmother had all the CDs but didn’t want me to hear about sex.” Mark Salling grew up in a strict Christian home in the South: “Madonna was considered the she-devil.” Jane Lynch recalls: “sitting at a bar all drunk on Long Island ice teas watching her ‘Material Girl’ video and thinking, ‘How Ballsy.’ “
Oh man … I’m thinkin’ this Madonna ep of Glee will go down as one of THE biggest episodes of any TV show this entire year … it’s that good. Because I was lucky enough to receive a preview screener of the ep, I’ve already watched it 6 times … it’s such a great ep! And this issue of TV Guide looks almost as fun as the episode itself. After the jump, check out three Madonnaesque photos included in this new issue of TV Guide …
I am dying for all y’all to see this ep … but, first we have an entirely NEW ep of Glee to enjoy tomorrow night. Ahhh … it’s too much fun to handle!! Make sure y’all pick up this issue of TV Guide, on sale this Thursday, to add it to your Gleeky collection (cuz I know you have one). I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos featured in this issue.
