popularglee 'Vogue': 'Popular's' Tammy Lynn Michaels did it before 'Glee's' LynchWhen “Glee” executive producer Ryan Murphy says he’s a big fan of Madonna, he means it. Sue Sylvester’s “Vogue” is not the first time a Ryan Murphy character has recreated the iconic video. Murphy’s first venture into TV was “Popular,” which ran on The WB from 1999 to 2001 and featured Queen Bee Nicole Julian (Tammy Lynn Michaels) in that cone-shaped bra.

Michaels, who recently separated from longtime partner Melissa Etheridge, recently posted about the experience on her blog, Hollywood Farm Girl. “It was fun,” she writes. “I remember i was super self-conscious about showing off the ‘area above my navel’….and do we need to talk about my tittays in
those GIANT CONES?”

She employed a bit of liquid courage to get her through the filming. “Right before that night shot, i’d had a glass of champagne just to
loosen my non-dancer self up. let’s watch that again. nope. i was not
loose. there was a crew of about 30 guys that were so nice and acted
like i had dancing talent instead of drunken rodeo clown.”

Check out the two videos below. Who did it better, Nicole Julian or Sue Sylvester?
