Over the course of a few hours, Britney Spears went from just another fan of ‘Modern Family’ to possibly its next guest star. After tweeting that she loved the ABC comedy, fans immediately began a campaign to get Brit on the show.
Yesterday, Spears tweeted, “I know everybody is excited about the Super Bowl, but I personally can’t wait to see the next episode of Modern Family! Funniest show on TV.” A fan then started a #GetBritneyOnModernFamily hash tag, to which Spears replied, “Ahhhh I would love to be on it!”
Some optimistic fans began assuming Spears would be on the show, but Ryan Seacrest reported that her guest appearance has not been confirmed yet. In fact, Seacrest hasn’t even been able to confirm that discussions between Britney and the Emmy-winning show have taken place. Then again, it’s been less than 24 hours since the campaign began exploding on Twitter, so it would probably be too soon for any sort of announcement.
Spears has done a number of guest appearances on tv shows over the years, starting with ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ in the late ’90s, followed more recently by ‘Will & Grace,’ ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and ‘Glee.’ We’re excited to see how ‘Modern Family might work Britney into the show!
