Whether you like her or not, it’s hard to deny that Britney Spears has had an effect on pop culture, and with those everlasting memories — the ushering in of teen pop, the hit after hit, and the expert use of a boa constrictor. So, naturally, when news broke that Glee would do an all-Britney episode, similar to their all-Madonna ep, I was jumping with, well, glee.

But today, creator Ryan Murphy said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that not only would the kids be singing her tunes, but the pop princess herself will be appearing on the episode. It’s a veritable pop culture explosion!

Murphy assures fans that the episode will be respectful and focus on her music rather than delve into her, um, troubled years. He also reveals that though her exact role is unclear, Spears will be part of fantasy sequences.

Now the question is: If she’s going to appear in one of her own songs, which Britney era are we most looking forward to? Vote in our poll and sound off below!
