Lady Gaga‘s first single off her new record, “Born This Way,” hasn’t even dropped yet – but the “Glee” powers-that-be have already snapped it up as the theme for an upcoming episode. EW confirms that the song will be used in relation to the ongoing homophobic bullying storyline — specifically for closeted bully Karofsky (Max Adler).
Boss Ryan Murphy tells EW, “This show is by nature optimistic and I think a character like Karofsky
could turn to booze or pills or alcohol and kill themselves or do
something dark. But I also love Max and I love that character and I
sorta want that character to have a happy ending. So I don’t really know
what that’s going to be, but I do know we’re going to do a whole
episode that’s about that song.”
That’s not the only thing to look forward to in the upcoming “Glee” episodes. We’ve already filled you in on the Justin Bieber-palooza we’re in for, but if that’s not really your thing, you can still get psyched for the return of Gwyneth Paltrow.
Her character, Holly, will be back in episodes 15 and 16 to date Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison). “Those two have become really good friends in real life and had really
good chemistry. She’s coming back as a sex education teacher. Gwyneth
and I are emailing, talking every week: What are we gonna sing? We’re
trying to do something fantastic,” Murphy says.
Thoughts, Gleeks? Do you approve of Murphy’s plans for the spring?
