It's Official: "Glee" Britney Spears Tribute Episode

By Robert Paul Reyes


"They`ve paid homage to Madonna and Lady Gaga, now the cast of Glee are set to take on the hits of one Miss Britney Spears.

After much speculation, series creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed there will indeed by an episode inspired by the singer in season two of Glee.

Some critics complain that Britney Spears doesn`t deserve a Glee episode dedicated to her music. But I strongly disagree; the pop diva and her legions of gay fans would be a perfect fit for the most gay-friendly program in network TV history.

The lip-synching Britney Spears isn`t in the same league as Madonna and Lady Gaga, but the pop tart represents the redemptive power of music.

Britney descended to the lowest pit in hell, but she`s back on top with a hit album and a successful concert tour.

Britney still has her occasional wardrobe malfunction and she will never be Mother of the Year, but God Bless her soul she`s trying her best to walk the straight and narrow path.

Britney`s music may be pedestrian at best, but she believes in her songs and only an elitist would be against Glee dedicating an episode to her bubbly music.

Besides I would love to see Lea Michele shave her head, don ratty gym shorts and clobber the head coach of the Cheerios with an umbrella.
