Oops, Glee did it again. And it pissed Britney Spears off this time.
The Fox musical aired its second tribute episode in honor of the pop icon last Thursday, but sources tell Access Hollywood that Spears felt anything but honored by how she was portrayed.
Her manager spoke to Billy Bush and said the artist’s team was unaware the show would revisit Britney’s troubled times - referencing her infamous buzzcut and atrocious "Gimme More" performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards - and was “livid” over the depiction.
On "Britney 2.0," Heather Morris' Brittany laments having to repeat her senior year and dons a costume similar to Britney's in 2007 for a school assembly. It ends in disaster.
Many have been miffed as to why Glee would bash Spears, who is now a fellow Fox employee on The X Factor and who actually appeared on a Season 2 episode.
However, the episode in question did conclude on a positive note, with Morris' character saying she wanted to be like Spears because “no matter what happened to her, she just came back stronger.”
