Despite an objection from one of the cast, "Glee" moves on with Britney Spears' manager's idea of having an episode using the pop singer's catalog, much like they did in season 1 with Madonna tribute. ET got the confirmation from creator Ryan Murphy who said a Spears episode is "currently in the middle of writing" process.

Back in April, Britney's manager, Adam Leber, began campaigning for a special episode featuring his client via Twitter, writing "Do you guys want to see a Britney Spears episode of Glee?". Ryan Murphy then responded, "I'm interested in the Britney Spears idea. I've always loved her. I'm entertaining it. I think young kids would like that."

Asked for opinion, Matthew Morrison said, "That's a rumour her manager started. I hope our show doesn't go along that route." However, co-star Jenna Ushkowitz said, "I would so not be against a Britney episode. I'm such a huge fan. It would be so much fun."

There is no clue yet whether Britney would appear in the episode. Ryan previously said that he planned a big tribute episode after 2011's Super Bowl but did not mention the artist.

or better yet.. no tribute eps at all and just go back to how it was in the first half of season 1 when the writers still knew how to write! enough tributes!

Of all the artists they had to pick the lamest Britney Spears.It was clear enough when Jayma May's character Emma stated what a bad role model she is by shaving her head. She's probably paying them to sing her cheesy trash songs

Glee should ditch doing a tribte for the lame Britney Spears and do one to one of the best selling female artists of alltime Mariah Carey who is up there with The Beatles and Elvis with her 18 number one hit singles
