Glee creator, Ryan Murphy, says Britney’s episode features six of her songs.

“We haven’t started shooting yet,” Murphy said to “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!”
