Ryan Murphy Ponders Britney Spears-Themed Episode of Glee

at . Comments

Ryan Murphy is listening.

A few days after the manager of Britney Spears tried to Tweet interest in a Glee episode dedicated to his client, the show's creator says "“I’m interested in the Britney Spears idea."

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he added: "I’ve always loved her. I’m entertaining it. I think young kids would like that.”

Murphy said he also has interest in Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, and, even, Courtney Love as artists he'd love Glee to cover.

“I actually ran into Courtney Love the other day and talked to her,” said Murphy. “She’s interested. I would love to have the kids do a Courtney Love episode one day...The key is the songs in the catalogue have to have a certain degree of theatricality."

In other Glee news: a third soundtrack will be released on May 18; and Kristin Chenoweth returns next week as April Rhodes. Watch a clip of her appearance below.

Glee Quotes

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
