Britney Spears. Glee. Her manager wants to make an all-Britney episode happen ... or is just desperate for publicity and trying to leech off the hit series.

Whatever the motivation, Adam Leber is lobbying for a Glee-ful Britney bonanza, Tweeting: “Do you guys want to see a Britney Spears episode of GLEE?”

No word if this ploy will ultimately work.

The show definitely had a hit with its Madonna tribute, and a Lady Gaga episode is in the works (according to Glee spoilers we've read), but no Brit. Yet.

Not sure how we feel about this. Does Britney Spears really have an appropriate repertoire for the Glee club? It seems better in theory than actuality.

Then again, how can you not pay homage to this:

We're on board as long as Lea Michele dresses like this.

With a lot of heart and plenty of soul (or just '80s pop), the Fox series has become one of the year's top freshman programs, so it's hardly a surprise Madonna approved of its tribute to her Tuesday. What do you think? Should Britney be next?

A few days before Glee airs an hour dedicated to Madonna, featuring the cast performing a number of Material Girl singles, the iconic singer sat down for a sneak peek at the episode.

What did she think?

"I thought the Madonna episode of Glee was brilliant on every level. The dialogue and the entire script was genius. I completely appreciated the layers of irony," she said in a statement.

Adding that she likes "all the messages about the boys being respectful to girls," Madonna continued:

"The entire cast was amazing. They're all so talented. I especially loved Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and Kurt Hummel's (Chris Colfer) characters. [Show creator] Ryan Murphy did a great job bringing all these elements together.

[Daughter] Lola loved the show too. I wish I went to a high school like that...If only."

This is an amazing video.

While Glee returned to Fox last night with a new episode, the Internet is buzzing today over the song that aired after the installment itself concluded.

Featuring Jane Lynch as her character of Sue Sylvester, and along with a couple other Glee cast members, the show actually put together a shot-for-shot recreation of Madonna's "Vogue" music video.

It's elaborate, it's entertaining and it's incredible that a TV show went to this length in order to promote an upcoming episode (tune in next week for a lot more of the Material Girl!).

Seriously, if this doesn't make you a Glee fan, nothing will. Sit back and watch the video below.

Tonight, Glee returns to Fox with its first new episode of 2010.

But fans of the musical comedy are already looking ahead to next week. That's because the April 20 installment of the show will feature nothing but Madonna singles, from "Vogue" to "4 Minutes"

The cast covers the latest issue of TV Guide and shares with the publication a few of its earliest Madonna memories. For instance:

  • Lea Michele attended Madonna’s Drowned World Tour three times and styled her hair like the Material Girl when she went to Bat Mitzvahs as a teenager.
  • Said Chris Colfer: "I was not allowed to listen to Madonna when I was younger... My mother and grandmother had all the CDs but didn’t want me to hear about sex.”
  • The newly-engaged Jane Lynch, pictured below in an iconic cone bra, recalls “sitting at a bar all drunk on Long Island ice teas watching her ‘Material Girl’ video and thinking, ‘How Ballsy.’"

As for Glee spoilers involving the episode itself, fans can look forward to...

... Sue Sylvester starring in her own “Vogue” segment, which also involves Mercedes and Kurt.

... Mercedes and Kurt singing "4 Minutes," as part of the Cheerios.

... A rendition of “Like a Virgin” that focuses on three couples trying to lose their virginity.

Moreover, the show will release a CD full of these Madonna singles. It just keeps getting better, doesn't it?

We may have finally found an issue on which Democrats and Republicans can agree:

Michelle Obama has invited the Glee cast to the White House because she's a big fan of this Fox musical comedy. Entertainment Weekly says the show is ready to accept an invitation to sing at the annual Easter Egg hunt on the residence's front lawn.

It will take place on April 5.

As far as we know, Glee has never featured a Down's Syndrome character whose mother is the former Governor of Alaska.

So Sarah Palin will need to find something else about the show to pretend to be offended by in order to remain in the news. The series actually does depict a knocked-up teenager.

Perhaps Palin can get riled up over the fact that the character's mother isn't forcing her daughter to fake an engagement to her deadbeat boyfriend because it would make for good politics. We mean, seriously. What kind of an example of Glee is trying to set?!?

When you're nominated for multiple Golden Globe Awards, and your show's soundtrack is among the most downloaded albums on iTunes, there's a good chance you'll remain on the air.

Still, Glee fans have an extra reason to be excited today, as the Fox sensation has been officially picked up for a second season.

"We've loved Glee ever since it was a pilot script, so it's been an incredible thrill to watch the show take root and see audiences embrace these characters in such a huge way this season," said FOX entertainment president Kevin Reilly today. "The show is a true and rare gem in television. We can't wait to see what they come up with for Season Two."

Neither can we, especially when the Glee cast is full of such cuties as Corey Monteih, Lea Michele and Dianna Agron.

The trio celebrates its good fortune at a party in honor of the Golden Globes below:

For most editions of Who Would You Rather, readers must suspend disbelief.

Granted, Tiger Woods made a decision between Rachel Uchitel and Elin Nordegren - but he's always played a different game than anyone else on the planet.

Today, though, we're really asking fans to play make believe. After all, neither Rachel Berry nor Sue Sylvester actually exit. They are simply characters on a TV show, played respectively by Glee cast members Lea Michele and Jane Lynch.

Still, after watching the latest episode of this Fox hit, we found ourselves oddly attracted to both.

Rachel is adorable. Every time she opens her mouth, we wanna stick something in it. Sue, conversely, may be the funniest person on TV. She also has a dominating side that must includes whips and chains in the bedroom.

You know where we're going with this.

Think about the characters above and let us know: Who would you rather...
