Everyone's buzzing about the upcoming Britney Spears episode of "Glee," but star Lea Michele would prefer that the pop singer's former flame Justin Timberlake drop by McKinley High.
In fact, she even begged Timberlake's current girlfriend to make him do the series.
"When I met Jessica Biel, like a loser, I asked her to tell Justin to come on our show," 23-year-old Michele, who plays diva Rachel Berry, told The Hollywood Reporter. "She was a little taken aback and said, 'Um, OK. I'll tell him.'"
Michele is convinced the "SexyBack" singer will appear on the big Super Bowl episode that's in the works - at least, she won't "stop believin'" that. Says the Broadway veteran, "I think they are saving Justin Timberlake for the Super Bowl episode. They have to be, because he is so perfect for our show. He has to be on it!"
Otherwise, she'd prefer more of the Material Girl. "If not Justin, I would hope it would be the sequel to the Madonna episode," she says of the Super Bowl extravaganza. "She has so many more amazing songs we didn't even touch."
