Brittany: I don’t wanna do Britney.
Kurt: Why no Britney, Brittany?
Brittany: 'Cause my name is also Britney Spears. My Middle name is Susan, my Last Name is Pearce… That makes me Brittany S. Pearce. Brittany Spearce.
Not only am I *huge* un-closeted Britney Spears fan (duh), but Brittany is probably my favorite character on Glee. So the Britney/Brittany episode last night was over the top for me! So glad that Brittany (Heather Morris) got a whole episode to truly shine! And damn, can that girl dance. I'm so glad she finally got to show off her moves. Here's a few fun facts about the talented Glee actress you may not have known...
- Heather auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance (season 2) but missed the top 20 by one vote.
- She toured with Beyonce as a dancer and danced with her in several music videos, including "Single Ladies"
- She was originally hired on Glee as a dancer (and of course was key in teaching the "Single Ladies" routine to the football team)
- Brittany's character was not originally supposed to be so air-headed, but apparently she gave a particularly dim-witted look one day at shooting and from that point on, Brittany was declared dumb.
- A lot of the one-liner's are Heather's own ad-libbing.
Brittany: I’m more talented than all of you. I see that clearly now. It’s Brittany… Bitch.
