Gleeks, are you ready for Brit-Brit? No, not just the much-anticipated Britney Spears appearance on Glee. The Britney-Brittany dance-off that appears to be in the making thanks to on-set tweets by the pop princess. I’m not going to lie, when I saw this picture I kind of had a full-on double rainbow moment.
Never have the words of Double Rainbow Guy more apt: “Whoa, that’s so intense. Whoa, man! Wow! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa, ho ho, oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Woo! Oh wow! Woo! Yeah! Oh ho ho! Oh my God! Oh my God, look at that!”
Britney tweeted some photos from the Glee set with everyone’s favorite dumb blond cheerleader (I say that with love) yesterday, causing Gleeks everywhere to overheat and pass out. Heather Morris and Britney appear to be reinacting the “Me Against the Music” video. Heather is decked out in full Britney gear from the video, while Britney has on Madonna’s all-white pants and vest. Along with the photo, Britney tweeted: “All my GLEEKERS in the crowd, Grab a partner take it down.” Please let this near kiss from the video happen, too.
Now, I must admit when I first heard they were doing a Britney episode I was wary. Sure, the Madonna episode was awesome. And the Lady Gaga episode was fun. But another themed episode, really? Still, having Britney herself appear takes it to a whole other level. I’ve always had a soft spot for Brit. “Toxic” remains one of the most fun songs to dance to at parties — ever. And we can kind of all relate to her I shaved my head in public moment on some level, right?
Show creator Ryan Murphy (pictured above as the meat in that Britney/Brittany sandwich) revealed that the episode will feature the cast dreaming about Ms. Spears while under anesthesia at the dentist’s office (played by Uncle Jesse himself, John Stamos). While “Me Against the Music” seems a sure thing, photos have also surfaced of Lea Michele in Britney’s “Baby One More Time” sports bra and track suit.
Now my greatest hope is that Brittany and Santana get a scene with Britney together to make all of our little Brittana shipper dreams come true. May I suggest a reenactment of those infamous MTV VMAs with Britney, Madonna and Christina? Britney would be Madonna, naturally.
Make it happen, Glee, make it happen. The very special Brit-Brit episode, the second of the new season, is slated to air Sept. 28.
