"Britney, I think 100 percent, is going to be on the episode" for a "couple of scenes," Murphy revealed during a Tuesday radio appearance for On-Air with Ryan Seacrest.

Murphy teased that "the fun Britney stuff happens" when members of the show's glee club go under anesthesia at the dentist (played by John Stamos) and hallucinate about the Circus singer, 28. "They have fantasies of how they can be like her," he explained.

Don't expect the episode to poke fun at Britney's famous head-shaving incident or other lowpoints in her infamous breakdowns of 2007 and 2008.

"The Britney episode, I'm here to say, is so reverential about her," Murphy insisted. "It's about her music and it's not about her personal life."

"Britney Spears is pop culture, and I think she' s been through a lot," he said of the divorced mom of  two. "I want to do something that just sort of says, you know what, 'thank you for what you have done. And we're encouraging you to continue to be doing as fantastic as you are.'… We're handling Britney with kid gloves."

"I really admire what she's done with her life and how she's turned herself around," added Murphy, who also directed Julia Roberts' new flick Eat, Pray, Love.
