Glee Episode 15 Recap: "The Power of Madonna"

This week's episode of Glee draws inspiration from Madonna, using several of the pop idol's hits strewn throughout the story. From the virginal glee club members deciding whether or not to give it up, to the gals feeling disrespected by the guys, the episode tackles classic high school problems, while maintaining its comedic touch. So why is Glee doing a Madonna-centric episode? We'll let Sue Sylvester answer that one for you:

"Madonna. Simply saying the word aloud makes me feel powerful; even in voice-over. How I have worshipped her ever since I was a little girl. Sorry Angie Jolie, Catherine the Great ... Madonna is the most powerful woman to ever walk the face of the Earth."

So Sue uses her blackmailing of Principal Figgins to get Madonna's greatest hits blasted over the loudspeaker all day. She'd also like to "Madonna" a few of the students, which translates to giving them $35 bucks and shipping them off to New York on a bus. Sue has her own dreamed of emulating Madonna and plans on using the Cheerios to achieve that goal.

Sue ponders: What would Madonna do? "The answer to that question is usually date a younger man," she says. Hence, the Cheerios must look for some younger arm candy - just one step toward acting like the pop idol.

Rachel enlists the help of her fellow female glee clubbers to discuss the matter of virginity. Though she hides that it's Jesse St. James, she wants to know how to stop him from getting mad at her for saying no to sex. "Just do what I do," urges Santana. "Never say no." Tina says they'll have to accept that boys don't respect their feelings, including Artie, who tells Tina she'll have to dress less Goth-like if they're going to be dating.
