As you know, Britney killed it on Glee last week, raking in over 13 million viewers and breaking a Glee record. But what else are people saying? Check it out:
Our latest Britney.com VIP Guest Blogger provides insight on the deeper, stronger meaning behind Britney and Glee.
As always, my friends at MTV.com gave the episode a glowing review, along with articles dedicated to Glee's "...Baby One More Time" and "Me Against The Music" performances, as well as B's Twitter coverage of the show. And a Brit Brit news round-up wouldn't be complete without a post on one of my favorite music blogs, MTV's Buzzworthy Blog.
Loving this play-by-play of Britney's tweets on NYPost.com — definitely a must-read.
Then there was UsMagazine.com, People.com, PinkIsTheNewBlog.com, Billboard.com, OKMagazine.com, Celebuzz.com and JustJared.com.
I've said it 33 times, and I'll say it again — Britney. Always. Dominates. xx♥
BRITNEY SPEARS + GLEE = SERIES HIGHEST RATED EPISODE TO DATE
New York, NY – The Britney Spears episode of GLEE is the highest-rated episode of GLEE ever among Adults 18 - 49. The Spears themed episode, which featured a cameo from the artist and included five of her hit songs including "Baby One More Time," I'm a Slave 4U," Me Against the Music" and "Stronger" outperformed any episode of the hit Fox show by +6% among adults and posted a 5.8/16 rating. The episode won the night in teens and virtually all male and female demos. It also out-rated its nearest competitor (CBS) by 24% in the adult demo. This is the first time in 17 years that the highest rated entertainment program of premiere week grew in week two among Adults 18 - 49 and total viewers since fall '93 with SEINFELD.

The New York Times photographer Todd Helser spent a few days in August on the Glee set, including the filming of the Britney Spears-themed episode, set to air on Sept. 28 at 8pm ET on FOX. Above is his shot of actress Heather Morris depicting Britney Spears in a dream sequence, which pays homage to one of my very favorite Britney hits, "Me Against The Music." Check out nytimes.com to view more shots from Todd's set. xx♥
If everyone and their mother doesn't have an opinion about Britney Spears, then something must be wrong. So it's no shocker that various bloggers and media elite are coming out of the woodwork to state what they want to see on the Britney-themed episode of Glee, set to air later this month.
PopEater.com is praying for wholesome guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury to appear clad in a red pleather jumpsuit.
The Hollywood Gossip is hoping for a Gleetastic trip to Starbucks.
Meanwhile, BuzzSugar.com is hoping that Rachel finally channels her inner bad girl a la "I'm a Slave 4 U."
OK, let's talk. What do YOU hope to see on the Britney-themed episode? Comment! xx♥
In a recent MTV poll, Britney's own Oops!...I Did It Again album came out on top as the BEST second album ever in the history of pop music! I've heard from multiple industry insiders that an artist's second record is the toughest to pull off, as there is more pressure than ever to get it just right. I've said it before, and I'll say it again — whatever Britney touches, it turns to GOLD, bitches! Click here for a few cool Oops! factoids. xx♥
