Ryan Murphy confirmed to Ryan Seacrest today that the princess of pop is “100%” going to be on Glee!
Hold onto your seats for this news, Gleeks! Glee creator Ryan Murphy has revealed the biggest guest star of the season and it’s — drum roll, please — Britney Spears!
“I will give you a little scoop,” Murphy told Ryan Seacrest on his KISS FM show Aug. 10, “which is that Britney will 100% be on the episode, which is exciting. She’s going to come and join us and do a couple scenes.”
Talk about a huge get! The much-anticipated Britney Spears extravaganza will air as the second episode of the season and — contrary to some rumors out there — it will NOT make fun of the
28-year-old pop star’s darkest, head-shaving hours.
“We are doing a Britney episode and people do have certain expectations because the show is sarcastic,” Murphy explained. “But the Britney episode is so reverential about her, and it’s so kind and it’s about her music. It’s not about her personal life, and I think Britney Spears is essential to pop culture, and I want to say thank you for what you’ve done, and we’re encouraging you to continue to be doing as fantastic as you do. So that’s not true. We’re handling Britney with kid gloves.”
