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.]"
