Britney Spears WILL Appear on Glee, Creator and Photo Confirm

by at . Comments

Will she or won't she?

That's been the question Glee fans have been asking over the last few weeks, as the show has confirmed a Britney Spears-themed episodes - but remained quiet about whether or not the singer herself would appear on it.

On Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning, though, creator Ryan Murphy put to rest any doubts, saying Britney is 100% "going to be on the episode," likely as the dental assistance to John Stamos' character.

"The Britney episode is so reverential about her and so kind and it's about her music and it's not about her personal life," Murphy said. "And I think, Britney Spears is pop culture, and I think she's been through a lot. And I want to do something that just sort of says, you know what, 'thank you for what you have done.'"

@bette are you dumb? Britney has been relevant for the last 11 years, any other artist has gone through such a meltdown and come back even bigger than before, all her albums are multiplatinum, her 2009 tour was the highest grossing tour by a female artist in the USA and the 5th in world's history. her "blackout" album is considered the most influenctial album in the past 5 years. she is the second most influenctial and powerful woman in music industry (number one being Madonnna obvioulsy) and the third in pop music (after Michael Jackson & Madonna)
beyonce, katy perry and rihanna are ok, gaga is just the new "it-girl" we'll have to wait and see if she'll be as relevant as today 10 years from now. anyways, Britney earned her position in music industry and she's more relevant now than ever. cant wait for her upcoming album and i'm dying to seee this episdoe i love glee

Just don't let her sing! The cast will show her up something rotten if she even tries to sing around them. might be funny to watch though...?

i personally think they should do a spice girls/backstreet boys tribute show... they revolutionized the pop charts in the 90s - and those of us who were 90s kids know all the words to all their hits!

@Steven, so true! we don't even know how long the newer artists will last, but Britney's been consistently coming out with chart toppers.

To the comment above, you are stupid. Britney is the best. Her most recent song "3" DEBUTED at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. None of those girls songs have done that, and none will 11 years into their career.
Your chart comment is stupid. Britney has 5 #1 albums, 1 #2. Lady Gaga doesn't have a #1 or 2 album. Rihanna doesn't have a #1 or 2 album.
Get your fact straight.

My guess is, she´ll definitely appear for this episode. She needs to promote her upcoming album and she finally realizes that her domination is neary over. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna + all the rappers are dominating the charts nowadays and although Britney can still attract fans but not larger as before. She is no longer the sweet, adorable and pretty little teenager anymore where fans are adoring her greatly. She grows up!

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.
