The upcoming Britney Spears Glee tribute episode may have been the pop star’s management's own idea, but the singer herself will not be appearing in it.
“Britney’s not in it,” Jane Lynch told reporters today at her wax figure unveiling at Madame Tussaud’s in Hollywood, Calif. “It’s a tribute to her music.”
Even though Spears herself will be absent from the episode, Lynch promises that tales from entertainer’s real life will be tied into the show’s storyline.
One of our all-time favorite tales, in fact.
“It’s kind of [about] how Matt [Morrison]‘s character Mr. Schuster doesn’t see any value in her and the kids really do,” she says. “And at the end [of the episode], he comes around and he likes [her music] so much, he shaves his head.”
Great moments in celebrity gossip - and soon, Glee.
Who would have guessed Britney shaving her head would one day inspire an episode of a Fox comedy about a glee club. You can't make this stuff up.
On the subjects of Spears and Glee, her ex Justin Timberlake has been rumored to appear on the series also ... and also isn't likely to actually do so.
“I love him,” the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy, who also wrote the screenplay for Eat, Pray, Love, told reporters last week at TCA. “But I think somebody just said, ‘Do you want him?’ And I think Lea [Michele] said, ‘He’s my favorite.’"
"Suddenly, he was on the show.”
Too bad he won't be in person ... but there's always room for some *NSync adaptions, are we right? Actually no, let's say bye, bye bye to that idea.
