Britney Spears, Not Just Her Songs, Will Appear on Glee

This morning, Glee's Ryan Murphy told Ryan Seacrest it was "100 percent" certain that Britney Spears herself will appear on the show's much ballyhooed, forthcoming Britney-centric episode. Murphy also explained that the Spears numbers will be fantasy sequences, performed while the kids are under anesthesia and having their teeth cleaned (by John Stamos, naturally). The episode will contain little to no Britney mocking. "The Britney episode is so reverential about her, and so kind and it's about her music," Murphy said. "It's not about her personal life. I think Britney Spears is pop culture, and I think she's been through a lot. And I want to do something that just sort of says, 'You know what, thank you for what you've done. And we’re encouraging you to continue to be doing as fantastic as you are.' We're handling Britney with kid gloves." Kurt is obviously getting the "Britney Spears is pop culture" line. [TV Tattle]
