Originally posted 08/13/2014 01:35PM

Upon its release in 1990, Madonna's "Vogue" was an appreciation of a long-gone age of Hollywood glamour. Now that age is truly lost: as xoJane's Marci Robin pointed out on Twitter, the passing of Lauren Bacall means every star name-checked in the song has died.

Bacall was the last surviving member of the 16 famous names in the song; nine of these stars were still alive when the song hit airwaves on March 20, 1990. ("Vogue" itself is 24 years old.)

Katharine McPhee's character might be up for the role of Marilyn Monroe on NBC's Smash, but on next week's episode (Monday, 10 p.m. ET), she proves she's still a "Redneck Woman" at heart.

In a sneak preview (see video above), McPhee's Karen Cartwright returns to Iowa for a baby shower, where she performs karaoke at a bar to Gretchen Wilson's country hit "Redneck Woman."

Meanwhile, back in New York, the writing-producing team played by Anjelica Huston and Debra Messing are working on getting investors for the show and looking to cast someone as Yankee hero – and Monroe husband – Joe DiMaggio.

(In 1983 there really was a Monroe musical, the short-lived Marilyn: An American Fable. It featured, in his Broadway debut, a pre-Quantum Leap Scott Bakula as DiMaggio. Alyson Reed played Monroe.)
