Britney Spears looks set for Fox TV ‘Glee’ episode
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Britney Spears seems set to appear in an episode of the Fox musical-comedy television show “Glee” next season.
Show co-creator Ryan Murphy said Tuesday he expects Spears to act in an episode that’s “reverential about her.” Murphy said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show he admires how Spears has turned herself around.
The singer of pop hits such as “… Baby One More Time” and “Toxic” spent years as tabloid fodder for a series of high-profile hospitalizations and erratic behavior such as shaving her head.
On “Glee,” singers under anesthesia at the dentist’s office hallucinate about Spears and being like her.
Murphy says the episode will feature Spears’ music and won’t delve into her personal life. He says, “We’re handling Britney with kid gloves.”
The Emmy Award-nominated show has become a hit for Fox.
