Same goes for Madonna for having incredible confidence – I couldn’t speak when I met her. I love women who are proud of who they are.

24 years ago, Madonna struck a pose at No. 1
On May 19th 1990, Madonna had been inspired by dancers/choreographers Jose and Luis Xtravaganza from the Harlem “House Ball” community, who introduced “vogue”-ing to her at the New York club Sound Factory. Twenty-four years ago today, her song “Vogue,” with its iconic back-and-white video, struck a pose atop the Billboard Hot 100 for the first of three weeks.

Glee covers Madonna’s “Lucky Star”
For the promotion of the upcoming episode of “Glee”, which features a cover of Madonna’s “Lucky Star” (LISTEN), Chris Colfer gave a quick Q&A to Billboard magazine…

Billboard: You’ve done Madonna before to much fanfare. Is this a favorite track?
Chris Colfer: It definitely is one of my favorites. I’m a big Madonna fan. It was a win-win. I was really happy with June and my version. I convinced her if the song is successful we could go on the road together.

Billboard: An all-Madonna revue, perhaps?
Chris Colfer: I think that’s a great idea, and I don’t know who wouldn’t buy tickets to that. I’m for it. If June’s and my version of “Lucky Star” plays at one gay club, we’ve made it.
