Britney on GLEE upsets parents group




Britney Spears

highly-rated Glee tribute

episode was not so

well-received by everyone,

The U.K. Mail online

reports October 9th,


Britney Spears’s Glee show

blasted by parents for endorsing

‘drug abuse, masturbation, and

burlesque’ | Mail Online

The hit Fox show has been blasted

by pressure group the Parents

Television Council (PTC) which has

deemed the episode the Worst

TV Show of the Week due to what

they described as the broadcast’s

‘explicit sexual content.’

A message posted on the

organisation’s website denounced

the episode’s ‘skimpy outfits’ and

‘sultry grinds’ during her hit song

I’m a Slave 4 U.


The hugely anticipated Britney

episode starred the 28-year-old

as herself appearing as a fantasy girl

for the McKinley High Glee club

singers who hallucinated about her

while under anesthesia at the dentist –

played by John Stamos.

The episode –

titled Britney/Brittany also featured

numbers by cast member Brittany

played by former Beyonce back-up

dancer Heather Morris

dressed in some of Britney‘s

raunchier outfits.




In the re-creation for the 2001

Madonna duet Me Against the Music

the PTC said the interpretation

included ‘plenty of girl-girl

bumping and grinding.’

The group also took the opportunity

to criticise the selection of the singer,

who has had a catalogue of

well-documented troubles,

because according to the group,

Spears wasn’t appropriate because

they don’t consider the singer to

be a suitable role model.



The message continued:

‘Glee earned its highest ratings ever

with this Britney Spears tribute,

drawing 13.3 million viewers.

‘A scary thought considering that

the mostly young teen/tween

audience basically witnessed an

endorsement of narcotics abuse,

public masturbation,

and school-sanctioned burlesque.

But perhaps most troubling is the

deification of a troubled pop star

into a symbol of empowerment

and self-esteem.’



‘Considering her stints in rehab,

her very public breakdowns,

and her questionable parenting skills,

there is absolutely no way Spears

should be considered a role model.’

‘The producers of the show can

spare us the old song-and-dance

about fallen celebs turning their

lives around.

What’s next?

Portraying Ike Turner

as a reformed feminist?’

The singer didn’t appear ruffled

by the controversy as she stepped

out on one of her daily shopping

trips in Los Angeles today.



Looking rather wild,

wearing a shapeless shirt,

dusty jeans and unbrushed hair,

she got on with her daily business

of adding to her no doubt

already vast wardrobe.


the singer is hard at work

and is said to have completed

three new songs and is steadily

working on producing more,

in a follow-up to hit 2009

album Circus.
