Among reports that Britney Spears would not be appearing on a Britney-centric episode of the Fox megahit, news broke last week that those reports are no longer true! On the road to promote his new movie, Eat Pray Love, Glee producer, Ryan Murphy, broke the news that Britney Spears herself WILL be making an appearance on Glee during an episode in her honor. Murphy made it a point to note that the episode will not center of the personal life of Spears, but rather on her contribution to making Pop music what it is today. “We are doing a Britney episode and people do have certain expectations because the show is sarcastic. 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.”
In other Glee news, Murphy hints that he’s hoping to make the post-Superbowl episode focus on either the Beatles, Michael Jackson, or Prince … So keep your ears open!
