If Britney Spears‘ fans and her manager have any say, the ‘Princess of Pop’ will have an episode of Glee dedicated to her, much like the tribute to Madonna that aired on April 20th. A full Britney episode featuring her hits is definitely doable…but is it likely to happen? Maybe.
The Facebook page dedicated to getting a Britney Glee episode has reached over 7,000 members and the fans are pleading their case. They would like to encourage writers of the hit Fox TV show to show Britney some love by honoring her influence on the music industry.
It seems Glee creator Ryan Murphy may jump on the Brit train, “I’m interested in the Britney Spears idea, I’ve always loved her. I’m entertaining it. I think young kids would like that.” Think, is an understatement. Of course they would. Britney Spears has proven to be one thing — ENTERTAINING.
Unfortunately there is at least one roadblock. Glee star Matthew Morrison isn’t too thrilled about an all Brit Brit episode, “That’s a rumor her manager started. I hope our show doesn’t go along that route.”
In my other job as a Twin Cities DJ, I actually got a chance to spend some time with Matthew Morrison. If I have known he wasn’t a Brit fan, I wouldn’t have been nearly as nice to him.
If the rumors are true that a Lady Gaga episode is in the works, then it is only right for a Britney episode. The Madonna episode was so successful that FOX wound up airing it again, with nearly 13.5 million people tuned in. If Madge can draw that many viewers, Britney would too.
