Britney Spears Will Appear On ‘Glee’ Britney Episode

In an announcement that will blow the minds of Gleeks everywhere – Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed today that Britney Spears herself will appear on the much-talked-about fall episode in her honor.

Photos from the set have already revealed a pigtailed Lea Michele dressed for her best “Baby One More Time,” but Murphy let a few more details slip in a chat with “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” saying Matthew Morrison will not be shaving his head – because there will be no Britney-bashing or mention of her more fragile times.

The Britney episode is so reverential about her, and so kind and it’s about her music. It’s not about her personal life. 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’ve done. And we’re encouraging you to continue to be doing as fantastic as you are.’ We’re handling Britney with kid gloves.

Murphy said he also hopes to handle Prince, Michael Jackson and/or Paul McCartney in the show’s sophomore season, which will feature a show-stopping “After the Super Bowl” episode.

In other Glee news, Mark Salling, who plays class stud Puck, dropped his first single – “Higher Power” – on Seacrest’s morning radio show, announcing he’ll release his debut album, called “Pipe Dreams,” on Oct. 12.
