Lea Michelle gets the honor of performing a sassy rendition of Britney Spears’ racy 2000 hit “Oops I Did It Again.” It takes place in a new promo video for the upcoming episode, “Britney 2.0,” on Fox’s hit show “Glee.”
It’s the second episode dedicated to Spears, who was deep into her seductress phase when she sang “Oops!” The episode is sure to ruffle some feathers.
The last time the show paid tribute to the pop singer, it drew fire from a conservative family group. The show isn’t pulling any punches this time around.
In a separate promo, the pop singer’s signature line “It’s Britney, bitch,” is uttered more than once, although it’s also bleeped almost every time. What’s the point?
In a small saving grace, when Britney says it, the censors lay off. Oddly, the censors also let the cast say “beeyotch” but not “bitch.” Go figure.
Lea’s character, Rachel Berry, having graduated from high school last season, is studying at the New York Academy for Dramatic Arts under the watchful eye of dance instructor Cassandra July, played by Kate Hudson.
As Rachel goes through her number in an academy studio, the video flashes shots of Kate as Cassandra looking on, and seemingly giving her nod of approval.
In other episode highlights, Blaine and Artie duet on a song that mashes up Brit’s “Boys” and Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend.” Finn is in the Army and Puck is in L.A. Brittany is trying to pull a Barack Obama and run for a second term as class president, although Blaine might have something to say about that.
