‘Glee’ Recap, “Britney 2.0”

We didn’t need another Britney Spears tribute episode, but we got it anyways. The kids exhausted her best songs, in my opinion, for the first one which left this one just feeling like an unnecessary sequel, which it was.

Brittany faces a teen life crisis, while Rachel and Kurt adjust to living on their own in New York.

Kurt and Rachel somehow find a pretty big loft apartment, and Rachel tells Kurt about her tough dance teacher Cassie. So Cassie was a Broadway babe until she had a meltdown on stage, caught by video phone of course. Her career ended and since then she’s been giving cupcakes like Rachel a hard time.

Cassie doesn’t think that Berry has the chops, or body, to pull of sexy but Rachel is determined to show her she can play Sally Bowles if she wants to. Knowing that the glee club back home is having another Britney week, they use to help Rachel tap into her sexiness–words I never want to write again.

Bitchface times TWO. Ugh.

Her performance with Brody goes well, for him, with Cassie giving her new friend all the attention. Rachel lashes out, calling Cassie a “YouTube joke,” and she gets kicked out of class. Later, Brody stops by their apartment to drop off a flower and tell Rachel that she really enjoyed dancing with her. They almost kiss, but uh, what about Finn?

At McKinley, Brittany can’t get her voice over right, and on top of that she’s failing all her classes. That doesn’t matter much to her as she is happy to get to do her Senior year again, but Sue kicks her off the Cheerios and takes away her high pony tail. This sends Brittany into a downward spiral, eating nothing but bacon and cashews all day while watching reruns of ‘The Client List.’

Mr. Schue has her talk to Emma on a daily basis, and encourages the other kids to help her feel better by performing some Britney songs. Brittany’s life started to mirror Britney’s a bit too much, she started to shave her head at one point, and not even a pep talk with her former girlfriend Santana could cheer her up. Sam figures out whats up, and tells her she doesn’t have to continue her fake downfall because she does have a friend in him. I like how Sam is stepping up sort of play the role that Finn did his three years in the club, the shoulder to cry on. Except he’s doing a much better job.

New girl Marley learns that Jake is nothing but a player from Unique, but that doesn’t stop her form crushing hard for him. This sounds familiar. She goes out with him anyways, and he reveals that he was bullied at his old school. He even sticks up for her when the popular kids pick on Marley and her mom again.

Will reaches out to Puck, Jake’s half brother, for some advice on how to handle him. I kind of missed Puck’s mohawk, but I’m sure Mark Salling is ready to grow his damn hair back. Just like the the club helped him to calm down, a bit, he says the same thing could help Jake. So Will officially welcomes Jake into New Directions but it already seems like he doesn’t quite fit in. He’ll be even more uncomfortable being around Marley all the time, knowing her feelings for him even though he just started dating cheerleader Kitty. Seriously, haven’t we done this before?

“Hold It Against Me” sung by BrittanyKitty and the Cheerios. Spears’ big comeback single was the start of things going downhill for Pierce. Numbers featuring the cheerleaders are generally pretty good but Sue wasn’t having it. So Brittany is off the team, for now.

“Boys/Boyfriend” sung by Artie and Blaine. I love hearing Artie/Kevin sing, with Finn off in the Army he can finally have his time to shine. Okay, he didn’t really shine with this mash-up of that last of Britney’s Neptunes produced singles and Justin Bieber‘s latest, but it surprisingly wasn’t that bad.


“Womanizer” sung by UniqueTina and Marley. Unique is trying to do right by Marley and let’s her know that Jake is romancing all the ladies around school. I actually really love this Britney song and they did a good job with it. I also liked the gymnastics inspired choreography, probably a nod to the Olympics. God, I’m getting sucked in again.

“3” sung by TinaSam and Joe. This songs is about a threesome, in case you didn’t know. Again, not bad, just not all that great either.

“Crazy/(You Drive Me) Crazy” sung by Jake and Marley. Another mash-up, Jake isn’t all that into Britney, but he does know a little Aerosmith. Jake seems to take his acoustic guitar everywhere, just like Puck did, and it works when it comes to picking up chicks. Just like it did for Puck.

“Oops…I Did It Again” sung by Rachel. Trying to prove that she can be sexy, Rachel enlists her classmates and Brody for this steamy take on one of Britney’s best known songs. I think she would have done better ripping off a suit to expose a a sheer bodysuit. I mean hey, it worked for Britney.

“Gimme More” sung by Brittany and New Directions. Echoing Spear’s infamous VMA performance, Brittany gets the club into trouble by daring to lip sync and falling all over herself with, bag of Cheetos in hand.

“Everytime” sung by Marley. This weepy ballad closed the show as Marley had to let Jake and everyone know about her feelings. I hope we don’t get more of this. It’s really depressing, mmmkay?

Lea Michele made 14 year-old “True Grit” actress Hailee Steinfeld CRY

The darling Hailee Steinfeld...

Hailee Steinfeld , the 14 year-old actress who is getting a lot of attention for her role in “True Grit,” (even getting a Best Supporting Actress SAG nomination), but that wasn’t enough for Glee‘s Lea Michele to even say hello to the young star. Hailee told J-14 magazine, yes that teenybopper magazine, that she was dissed by the actress when she went to audition for the Coen Brothers movie.

When I was auditioning for ‘True Grit,’ I was on the Paramount lot. I was wearing clothes from the 1800s that were big and uncomfortable. ‘Glee’ also films on the lot, and I love the show. I saw Lea Michele just walking to her trailer, and I was like, ‘That’s the girl from ‘Glee.’ I’ve got to go ask for her autograph!’ So I walked up to her and asked for her autograph, but she walked by and a guy came and said, ‘Sorry, now’s not a good time!‘”

Hailee was so heartbroken, she went back to the set in tears. “I had to walk all the way back to the car wearing what I was wearing. I was practically crying on the way home,” Steinfeld said. “I was so sad! But she’s beautiful, and she has an amazing voice.

Of course this isn’t the first report of Michele having diva-like behavior, but I’m sure Hailee is sweating it now.   She has a SAG nomination and a hit move on her hands, after all.

Ummm....hi, Matt!

When he’s not having fever dreams about his students, Glee‘s Matthew Morrison is being mobbed by real-life high school students and enjoying his fame. The 32 year-old visits his old high school with Details where he is gushed over by the teachers and students.

My goodness!
Go ahead and JUMP, Matt!

You’d think he’d be used to this now, but he doesn’t like the idea of being a “sex object.”

“I’m not comfortable with the idea of my sex appeal, but I know in my job I have to use it. I wish I could say I got to this point in my career based on my talent, but I don’t think that’s true.”

So humble, Matt!

Oh, all right...one more.

After spending years on Broadway, Matthew finally hit it big landing the role of Spanish teacher Will Schuester on Glee. “Matt’s the star of the show,says show creator Ryan Murphy. “The show rests on his shoulders—everything revolves around him.Um, don’t tell Lea Michele that. Speaking of whom, the interviewer seemed put off by Michele, detailing how she tried to get his attention while he was on set:

“Everyone’s looking over their lines now, rehearsing dance steps— except Lea Michele, who keeps staring at me as I observe Morrison. Every time I look up, I catch her looking my way. It seems she knows I’m a reporter and wants my attention.

When Morrison brings over a laptop to show me a movie treatment he’s been working on, Michele crosses the set, stands next to me, and starts talking to the show’s publicist. “I have a lot of interviews to do,” she says. “There’s that AIDS blast and…” She turns to look at me. “Oh, hi.”
