Glee creator, Ryan Murphy, says Britney's episode features six of her songs.
"We haven't started shooting yet," Murphy said to UsMagazine.com. "We start shooting our new second season on Wednesday. All I can say is that we're doing six Britney songs."
Ditsy cheerleader Brittany, played by Heather Morris, is the narrative focus of this episode, titled "Britney/Brittany."
"I sort of don't want to say what we're doing yet because it's not airing until September," Murphy teased, "but we're paying tribute to her in a fun and unexpected way."
Actor Matthew Morrison, who bashed the idea of a Britney-themed Glee episode a few months back, is in on the Britney-action. Morrison's character, Mr. Schuester, will "refuse" to sing a Britney song in the episode. "The entire episode is Schuester saying, 'I don't want to do Britney! I don't want to do Britney!' We're doing it in a really fun, hallucinogenic way," Murphy said.
Murphy was tight-lipped about rumors claiming Britney herself will appear in the episode.
"I can't say," he told reporters. "Isn't that terrible? That will launch 1,000 stories!"
