The buzz surrounding the Britney Spears episode of “Glee” is attempting to go head-to-head with the anticipation for both the Madonna and Lady Gaga themed episodes combined.
Spears fed the fans’ hunger for more details by tweeting,"what's up GLEEKS? Having so much fun on set!! Can't wait for you guys to see the episode!" along with a photo of her on set.
“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy told Ryan Seacrest earlier this month that the Britney scenes would involve dental work and anesthesia, but he didn’t say what role the pop star herself would play.
And although Spears didn't spill any details, we also know that no jabs will be thrown at Spears' tumultuous past.
"It’s about her music, it's not about her personal life,” Murphy told Seacrest. “I think Britney Spears is pop culture. I think she’s been through a lot, and I want to do something that says thank you.”
The bets are already going that "saying thank you" will involve finding a reason for Heather Morris's character Brittany to say, "It's Britney, [expletive.]"
Who or what is a "Glee" and why should I care if BS twitted from it?
Glee is the new gay...
Oh please, every one should have a chance to be in Glee's spotlight. Like Damian McGinty of Celtic Thunder!!! He is incredibly handsome, charming with his Irish accent, and he has an amazing voice!!! The suits of Glee would have a huge following by running a storyline involving this young man,he auditioned and no word yet. BUT the fans of CT are not going to give up on him getting a shot at GLEE. Check his videos; Google Celtic Thunder It's Entertainment OR Damian McGinty/ Mack the knife. You will see true talent and charm, not to mention he is easy on the eyes!!!!
Hilarious... I hope you meant it to be that way...
Here's a challenge for "Glee": Do a series of episodes based upon music theory and its history as most likely reflected in Western culture, all the way from Palestrina to Pink... I dare them.
what's the projected viewership? how much money can we squeeze from our sponsors?
I love Glee, but how can they do an entire episode about Britney Spears? All of her songs sound the same. I won't be watching that episode.
Then you don't love Glee. Gleekers watch every episode regardless of the music or guest stars. I personally don't care for Britney either, but she was a pop icon and molded the way pop music is today, whether we like it or not.
A washed up celebrity tweeted about a teenie bopper television show? I'll be sure to tell everyone I know.
It's a shame that only these white pop stars are mentioned..where's a Janet Jackson themed episode?
Where's her permission? They have to go through so many copyright laws and red tape to get access to these songs. I, for one, would love to see a Mary J. episode.
I WISH theyd do episodes about more TALENTED artist music, NOT gaga and britney, but QUEEN...MAMAS AND PAPAS...BEACH BOYS....JANIS JOPLIN...something MORE than this crap. I love GLEE and think its a great show, but when they wanna really show their talent, they SHOULD make episodes with music from truly GREAT artists. seriously.
Don't forget Nuggent...
Why stop there? Mozart, the Schumanns, Berlioz, Smetana, Debussy, Orff...
it's difficult to have people on your show when they are DEAD
Gayness be here.......
dont watch glee but cant wait for brthney to go on. loooooooooooove her.
Why do people insist in linking to an entertainment story on the entertainment section of a news site and then complain that they don't care? Clearly you cared enough to click the initial link.
Clearly, you cared enough to sign your name to an inane comment.
CNN hereby orders you to care about this.
Well, of course she SUKS! All fabricated BS is all she ever was, I mean seriously.....
This is news???? A celebrity tweets? CNN you don't even know what news is half the time.
...and you posted this item in the Latest News section at the top!!! I expect news items of importance in the Latest News section. No wonder news agencies are going down the financial tube. You publish items like you're a ill-informed blogger.
which woman is britney? is she in that picture? all i see is an older woman (on the left) standing next to a younger woman (her daughter?)
I love Glee but will definitely NOT WATCH the Spears episode! If she COULD sing it would be a whole different ballgame, but good grief I find it hard to believe she has any fans left.
Sorry I missed the part that told me why I should care about this...
Really? That's why you took the time to leave a comment, is to say you don't care? Wow, now that we know, thanks for sharing.
Twits...please let this fad die out faster than it is. it can only damage the mentality of americans..."tweet"...gawd. Just another excuse to not go outside and get excercise
I CANT WAIT! I LOVE GLEE AND AM A TRUE FAN OF BRITNEY EVEN THROUGH ALL THE TOUGH TIMES! BRITNEY+GLEE=AN AWESOME FRIGGEN TIME
I think you may be retarded...
Tweet is not a word, CNN needs to stop using it.
Really, not a word, HUH? Birds don't "tweet"?
It is if enough people use it – we invent and use new words all the time... sheesh
Wow, Fred. You're how old?
