Justin Bieber fans are probably singing the blues now that "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has denied rumors of an upcoming Bieber-based episode.
TVLine recently reported that the hit Fox series had planned to do a tribute to the teen idol on its February 15 show, with the cast singing several of the pop star's songs. But Murphy tells the Hollywood Reporter it just isn't so.
"'Glee' is NOT doing a Justin Bieber tribute episode," he says. "We are doing an episode where Sam [Chord Overstreet] sings a Bieber song to win Quinn [Dianna Agron] back ... and copies his hairstyle, etc."
But, Murphy cautions, "It's a small part of a big episode that has a LOT of other things going on."
What's more, there will be fewer "Glee" tribute episodes in the future.
"We are not doing any more of those this season," says Murphy. "Those are reserved for artists with a big catalog, à la Madonna and Britney."
