I don’t know. I watched last night’s Glee tribute to Brtiney Spears and didn’t find it insulting to the X Factor judge. Sure, the show used the pop star’s 2008 meltdown as a jumping off point to tell a story, but in the end, I thought it emphasized Britney’s triumph over adversity.
In the episode, Glee club member, Brittany (Heather Morris) has a breakdown that pretty much parallels Spears’ complete with cheeto eating, attempted head shaving, paparazzi attacking and the on-stage trainwreck. But in the end, Brittany pulls herself up after hitting rock bottom–just like Britney.
Nevertheless, Access Hollywood reporter, Billy Bush says he spoke personally with Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph who claims he had not seen or heard about the episode before it aired on FOX last night.
Billy said, “I can tell you that Britney’s manager, Larry, is livid. He’s not happy.” Oops.
Britney had approval over the first tribute Glee did in Season 2. She also appeared in a cameo. This time, co-creator Ryan Murphy did his thing without input from Team Britney. Personally, I think the second tribute had more substance and better storytelling.
By the way FOX PULLED the “Gimme More” video from the official Glee On Fox You Tube channel. I posted a super-ghetto version that I found below, just to give you an idea of what’s pissing Britney’s camp off.
Watch Billy’s report below
And watch Brittany sing “Gimme More” while having an onstage meltdown that mirrors the Britney Spears MTV Music Awards debacle from a few years ago.. Britney fans…are you insulted?
