New Lady Gaga Single: Headed to Glee!

by at . Comments

Justin Bieber isn't the only artist to soon have a single featured on Glee.

Creator Ryan Murphy has told Entertainment Weekly that his show has received permission to use a single that has not even been released yet: Lady Gaga's "Born This Way."

How will Glee utilize the song? In spring episode centered around Kurt's nemesis, Karofsky.

“I love that that song is anthem,” says Murphy. “This show is by nature optimistic and I think a character like Karofsky could turn to booze or pills or alcohol and kill themselves or do something dark. But I also love [actor Max Adler] and I love that character and I sorta want that character to have a happy ending. So I don’t really know what that’s going to be, but I do know we’re going to do a whole episode that’s about that song.”

You tell us, TV Fanatics: Are you going Gaga over this news?

Oh God, everyday i know my worst fear of Glee will happen, that instead of Blaine, max will end up with Kurt, and all that tease about Kurt and Blaine will be just a waste of time, because they will want to focus on Kurt forgiving Max and fall in love with him or something, it is so predictible, Give us KLAINE!!! hell no to Kurx!!!

"Meh. I prefered the show when it reinvented classic songs not just did covers of current chart sdngs." I agree. I feel that Glee is taking many steps backward by covering current songs like "Billionaire," "Marry You," "Just the Way You Are," and especially "Teenage Dream" (which was overrated and only garnered many viewers because it's supposedly on top of the charts). I thought the point of Glee was to make old songs appeal to newer generations. Now the show is losing its uniqueness and now serving more as an advertisement for the original songs. What's next, a song by Nicki Minaj? Ryan Murphy is making too many mistakes here.

I'm sorry but I still don't get the big deal about lady gaga and am still waiting for the gaga madness to pass...
doing gaga looks more like a publicity stunt because she's so popular.. not the because the music is great..

Meh. I prefered the show when it reinvented classic songs not just did covers of current chart sdngs. They're going to lose the demographic that first loved the show and spread the word of mouth about it.
It had better be a good song.

@Gizem: She sang a portion of the track a capella at the VMAs. This video is likely that performance dubbed, over some electro beat, then looped for three minutes.
