The highly-anticipated Britney Spears episode of Glee airs tonight and it’s tough to tell who is more excited for the show — the millions of Gleeks who tune in every week or the cast of the hit Fox show. To get everyone more revved up (if possible) the Glee cast shared their thoughts on the princess of pop!
“People that love this show or even like this show, they’re going to love this episode,” John Stamos teased in the below interview, via MTV News. “I don’t feel like Britney stole my thunder … maybe a little. Well, it’s her show. [The episode is] called ‘Britney/Brittany. ‘”
Naya Rivera grew up listening to Brit Brit’s pop hits and referred to the icon as “Lady Britney.”
“I love Britney Spears. I mean, who doesn’t? We all grew up with her,” she said. “The first music purchase I ever made was ‘… Baby One More Time’ on cassette. [It was like], Britney Spears is going to be in my mitts, what do I do? [And I was like], ‘Hi Britney!’ And then she was like, ‘Hey!’ She was awesome and beautiful. She was, like, magical.”
Even the male stars of the show love them some Brit.
“I am very excited about performing the ‘Toxic’ number. It’s going to be very cool,” Cory Monteith said. “It’s going to be an interpretation of the song you would not see coming.”
Catch the Britney-themed episode of Glee tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox and see the cast perform hits like “Stronger,” “… Baby One More Time” and “Me Against The Music.”
