After the success of the all-Madonna tribute episode, “The Power of Madonna”, creator Ryan Murphy is already contemplating future tribute episodes. Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin…I’m all for most of the ideas he’s throwing out there. Until we got to Britney Spears:
“I actually ran into Courtney Love the other day and talked to her,” says Murphy. “She’s interested. I would love to have the kids do a Courtney Love episode one day.” But he stresses that with all of these artists it really all comes down to the music and how it fits in the Glee universe. “The key is the songs in the catalogue have to have a certain degree of theatricality,” says Murphy.
I don’t know…what do you guys think? A complete Glee episode dedicated to all Britney numbers? The cast might be able to pull it off, but is it a right choice? And what about all these tribute episodes possibly coming up – think the writing will suffer at all? I want to hear all your thoughts in the comments!
