Creator of Glee Hints at Britney Spears, Michael Jackson Episodes

by at . Comments

Nothing is confirmed, and no quotes are on the record, but it's looking increasingly likely that Glee will dedicate episodes next season to Britney Spears and Michael Jackson.

The Britney rumor has been floating around for weeks and Entertainment Tonight reports creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that he's penning an installment based around this singer's songs.

Brit and MJ

As for MJ? Glee will air in the coveted post-Super Bowl spot in February. Murphy says he's planning a major tribute episode for that night and said ET was "close" when it guessed Jackson would be at the center of it.

We'll have more on these rumblings when they are closer to fact, but sound off now in our Glee forum:

Michael is a Icon. The greatest entertainer that ever lived. Britney is alive and well and a tribute to her can be done anytime. Michael Jackson has done so much for the music industry, he changed the music industry and has done so much for the world. He deserves to honored with a tribute on Glee. It would be a hudge ratings jummp for the show too.


would love to see a mj tribute.
LONG LIVE THE KING OF MUSIC! r.i.p michael jackson


i really prefer a michael jackson episode i love britney but but michael is the king of music if they don't honor him then ryan murphy is just being selfish enough with the girl episodes do some guy episodes too for goodness sake MICHAEL JACKSON ALRIGHT PERIOD.


Michael Jackson is/was on top of his game. He knew every angle in and out to his profession. He earned every title and awards there were even had some made up just for him by during it the hard way, he earned them. Unlike some titles were given to a few he earned his. He deserves to be honored on Glee. Britney Spears is okay but Michael Jackson was and still is the King of the crops.


As "The Greatest Entertainer That Ever Lived " Michael Jackson should be honored. He deserved it, earned his Title and lived up to his title. Britney Spears is okay but Michael Jackson is/was the King of the crop.


Michael Jackson deserves this more than anyone. I mean, he is the greatest entertainer that ever lived, so it's only right. Glee is full of entertainment and MJ is the king of it, so get MJ on there ASAP:) MJ forever:)

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.


[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.
