Vodpod videos no longer available.

If you do one thing today, make sure it’s watching the hilarious Jane Lynch as Glee‘s Sue Sylvester doing her best Madonna impression (above) in her shot-for-shot remake of Madonna’s Vogue, which aired last night in the US. Next week’s Madonna-themed episode of Glee airs here next Wednesday on TV3 at 8pm, and will likely include a hefty chunk of this music video. Also featured are Amber Riley and Chris Colfer, Glee‘s Mercedes and Kurt, playing the role of Sue’s backing singers.

My personal highlight has to be Sue’s take on Madonna’s ‘rap’ near the end of the song, inserting her own name and a jibe at her nemesis from the show, Mr. Schuester.

I can’t count myself as a person who regularly reads Vogue Italia, or Vogue anywhere for that matter, but my interest was piqued when I heard that they had put together a spread, and indeed a cover, inspired by TwitPic. Yes, you read that correctly, a fashion spread made to look like the models took a couple of dodgy camera phone pictures and uploaded them to their personal Twitter accounts.

The pictures, shot by Steven Meisel (with TwitPic renamed MeiselPic) feature models like Agyness Deyn, Gisele Bundchen, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell. The results are quite varied, with some being positively meh-worthy and others actually quite interesting.

I’m sure the whole thing is supposed to be some sort of commentary on our ‘fast-moving’ society and how we’re more likely to look at these actual TwitPics then a true fashion spread. Food for thought.
