Madonna Enjoys 'Empowering' Glee
Madonna has fired back at reports she's not familiar with TV phenomenon GLEE, insisting she has a crush on the show's star Matthew Morrison.
The pop superstar's back catalogue will provide the soundtrack for an episode of the TV musical, which will air in America next week (beg19Apr10) - and she admits she's thrilled to be part of the series.
Internet reports suggested Madonna was far from happy about the idea of giving show producers access to her hits and had snubbed the chance to make a guest appearance - because she'd never heard of Glee.
A source told Popeater.com, "Madonna doesn't have a TV and has no idea what Glee is. The show (producers) 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."
But the singer has brushed off the claims, insisting she's familiar with the characters and even has a crush on actor Matthew Morrison, who plays teacher Will Schuester.
Madonna says, "I think Mr. Schuester is very cute. And I'm glad he's doing such a good job empowering all the girls."
