Lea Michele gives some hints about the Britney Spears episode:
“It’s gonna be a really big episode…I’ve always loved Britney Spears, and I get to do something REALLY cool,” she said.
“What I loved about the episode is there’s old songs, there’s new songs, and Ryan (Murphy) also does what was really cool in the Madonna episode, how he took a song and had the boys sing it. He does the same thing with Britney and I can’t wait to hear it because the idea sounds so cool.”
“I am singing a classic Britney Spears song that I’m so excited about. I am recreating a Britney video, but I can’t say what it is yet,” she added.
Matthew Morrison, on the other hand, revealed that Mr. Schuster will be anti-Britney:
“I like Britney. I got in trouble earlier for comments I made saying I’m anti-Britney, but I’m not. I think in this episode they’re going to mirror those comments and I’m going to be very anti-Britney in the episode because I don’t like what she represents…It’s gonna be a lot of fun and some crazy stuff is gonna happen,” he said.
Britney herself expressed her enthusiasm for the idea on Twitter, posting recently: “I love Glee, the cast is so talented.”
