It’s Britney, bitch. Or in this case, Brittany S. Pearce. Everyone’s favorite Cheerio has the enviable task of performing Spears’ dance hit “Hold It Against Me” for Glee’s second tribute episode to the pop singer. Brittany is accompanied by new HBIC cheerleader Kitty and the entire squad. They bust out some serious dance moves, complete with props being thrown. In the end, only one Cheerio will remain. Any guesses on who?
Since the first Spears-themed episode garnered the show’s second highest ratings ever, it only makes sense another hour-long show filled with The X Factor judge’s music was made. I’m sure FOX and Ryan Murphy have high hopes that “Britney 2.0” spike the Nielsen numbers once again.
Other Britney numbers being covered in the episode include “Gimme More“, “Oops!…I Did It Again“, “Womanizer“, “3” and “Everytime“. Two mashups featuring Brit’s songs will also air. Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” and ‘N Sync’s “U Drive Me Crazy” are mixed with Spears’ “Boys” and “(You Drive Me) Crazy” respectively.
You can also look forward to a few familiar faces showing up on this week’s episode. In terms of last year’s graduating students, both Puck and Santana make their Season 4 debut. Faculty members Principal Figgins and Emma Pillsbury also pop up for the first time since last season’s finale. Check out Brittany’s “Hold It Against Me” performance below.
With all the times we’ve written about Dean Geyer on Homorazzi, you’d think he would’ve made the cut for my Man Crush feature before. Surprisingly, that’s never happened. What was I thinking? Given that Glee airs its fourth season premiere tonight, I thought it was time I stop skirting the issue and declare my online love SLASH lust for Geyer this week. Welcome Dean, you’re about to be crush’d.
Geyer was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and later moved to Melbourne, Australia. He gained notoriety down under during his run on the fourth series of Australian Idol, where he eventually placed third. He parlayed his popularity on the talent show to a recording contract. After a lukewarm response to his debut album, the 26-year-old ventured into the world of acting. He landed a role on the popular Aussie soap, Neighbours.
Last year, Geyer made a splash in North American waters by making his film debut in the action film, Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown and starring in Steven Spielberg’s ill-fated FOX series, Terra Nova. The network execs must’ve loved him since he’s appearing in another FOX show. I’m sure his appearance on Glee as Brody Weston will elevate his rising star even more and earn him legions of new fans. I know it worked for me. Check out several hot pictures of this Aussie bloke below.
We fight to be treated equally and to stop homophobic slurs, bullying, etc, yet we’re so mean to each other? Why is this the case? Many have discussed this on Homorazzi and but it’s very interesting to hear about it from the perspective of a professional.
In the following video, an incredibly handsome psychotherapist named Matthew J. Dempsey talks about why people tend to judge others easily at times and how it can play out specifically in the gay male community. As the video commences, a scene is shown from Muriel’s Wedding where the girls are so judgement of Muriel and simply don’t give her a chance for superficial reasons. Later in the video, we also see a scene from Glee between Sebastian and Max when Sebastian tells Max he’s about 100 pounds overweight, can’t get a guy and that he should stay in the closet.
Watch the video below to hear his perspective on this and the solutions he proposes in addressing this common issue and why.
Covering Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” at this point seems a day late and a dollar short. I guess we really can’t blame Ryan Murphy too much since Jepsen’s hit blew up after Glee wrapped its third season. Gleeks would have to wait for the cast to return from their vacays to hear the show put its own spin on the Summer song of 2012.
The “Call Me Maybe” performance will appear on Glee’s Season 4 premiere this Thursday. Thanks to the network, we have a sneak peek of it a couple of days before airing on television. Singing the infectious pop song is the new, New Directions crew. With most of the club graduated, Will Scheuster’s club is certainly looking anemic. Brittany, Blaine, Tina and newcomer Wade cover the track. Not sure why Artie is sitting this one out and watching from the audience, but I suppose we’ll find out later this week. Check out the video below.
Just when I thought I was done with Glee, Ryan Murphy snags Kate Hudson for a six-episode arc as deliciously wicked Cassandra July. Slowly, FOX has teased us with glimpses of Hudson’s debut, with episodic pics, to an extended clip of her first interaction with Rachel Berry and even the audio for her first performance. At long last, we finally have the official video for her first number on the FOX show.
The powers-that-be were kind enough to debut Hudson’s performance days before the show’s fourth season premiere and it lives up to all the hype. Not only does she sound great but her dancing is flawless. It shouldn’t come as a surprise for anyone who saw Nine. She was the best thing in that musical bomb. Check out the clip and witness Kate school Lea Michele (Rachel) on how real dancing should look like.
Up until now we’ve only seen promo posters, episode pics and extended scenes from the first couple of episodes of Glee‘s fourth season. At long last, we finally have tracks from “The New Rachel” and “Britney 2.0“. Halleloo!!! Gleeks were treated to five songs thanks to a listening party via Facebook.
On the season premiere, Darren Criss takes on Imagine Dragons‘ “It’s Time”, while New Directions tackles the Summer Song of 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen’s ubiquitous hit, “Call Me Maybe“. In her Glee debut, Kate Hudson performs a mashup of Jennifer Lopez’s “Dance Again” with Lady Gaga’s “Americano“. I hear her dancing is beyond amazing during the performance.
For the second Britney Spears-themed episode in the show’s history, Brittany (Heather Morris) covers the pop princess’ stripper anthem, “Gimme More“. Meanwhile, Blaine (Darren Criss) and Artie (Kevin McHale) take on a Justin Bieber/Britney mashup of “Boyfriend” and “Boys” respectively. Also in the episode is Rachel (Lea Michele) performing “Oops!… I Did It Again” and Brittany covering “Everytime“. Unfortunately, the audio for the latter two weren’t released yet, but everything else mentioned is embedded below. Enjoy.
Given that the first Britney Spears-themed episode titled “Britney/Brittany” is still one of the show’s highest-rated episodes ever, it only makes sense Ryan Murphy and company film another episode centered around the “Toxic” singer’s discography. Plus, she’s now a judge on X Factor which airs just before Glee on Thursday nights, allowing FOX to promote the shizz out of it as a night dedicated to the 30-year-old singer.
Scheduled for the second episode of the fourth season, “Britney 2.0” will once again feature Brittany S. Pearce prominently. The Cheerios cheerleader is feeling depressed and will turn to her idol, Brit, for inspiration. Rumor has it, Brittany will tackle Spear’s “Everytime“. Meanwhile in New York City, Rachel gets some much needed help in her dance class. Thankfully for us viewers, that help comes in the form of hunky new stud, Brody (Dean Geyer). Miss Berry is reportedly performing a big production number of “Oops!… I Did It Again“. Check out stills from this episode below.
Another day, another Glee preview. Fox is certainly promoting the shizz out of the show’s upcoming fourth season and its move to Thursday nights. Already, we’ve seen the first official cast photo, character posters, extended clips and now we have a behind the scenes look. The clip, introduced by Kevin McHale and Darren Criss, highlights all the new key players including Kate Hudson, Jacob Artist, Melissa Benoist, Becca Tobin and most notably Dean Geyer.
Ever since the 26-year-old actor was announced as a new cast member, fans of his have waited with bated breath for the first look. For me, the second I saw pictures of him in a tank top filming with Lea Michele in NYC, I was stoked. The Aussie actor certainly knows how to fill out a top. He’s got muscles for days.
In the newly-released clip, he’s shown practically naked, coming out of the shower with his abs glistening and just wearing a towel. SIGH. I think this shirtless moment will top Chord Overstreet’s introduction on Season 2, and that’s no easy feat. Chord was dayum sexy in that scene. Watch the clip below and decide for yourself.
