Glee: The Power of Madonna

Mr. Schuester is concerned that the girls in the glee club are being disrespected and bullied by the guys. Looking to Madonna and her musical message of equality as inspiration, he challenges the entire team to choose Madonna songs as their next assignment in the hopes that the girls embrace her strength, independence and confidence and that the guys will see the error of their misogynistic ways. The glee club takes the assignment to heart as they perform some of Madonna's greatest hits, including "Express Yourself" and "Like A Prayer." Meanwhile, Kurt and Mercedes give Sue a vote of confidence with a makeover that is definitely in "Vogue"

When the episode starts Sue is writing in her journal. She is telling the journal that she has always looked up to Madonna ever since she was a little girl. For this reason, Sue wants Figgins to play Madonna every day on the intercom...every single day. She seems to believe that her team can dedicate themselves to Madonna, too. Figgins tries to tell her no, but of course she has the blackmailing over his head like a cloud full of rain. Sue even goes as far as demanding that the girls of the team date people that are younger than them. Even the freshman. That is how far she is willing to go to devote her team to Madonna. ..
