TV DIVAGAL EXCLUSIVE! ESTELLE: Not Gleeful About A Guest RoleBy Delaina Dixon | September 21, 2010 | Entertainment
Glee is back tonight!
With Britney Spears heating up the ranks on the series this sophomore season, it stands to reason that every female pop star out there would be angling for a guest spot on the show. But that’s so not the case.
Catching up with Estelle at the Essence Fierce & Fabulous Awards last week, the Kanye West protege told me she has no interest making a cameo.
“They’re brilliant actresses on that show, I don’t need to add to that,” Estelle declared to TV DivaGal.
“For me, that would just be weird. Like, ‘OK, the one song that you know, we’re going to sing this again,” the British pop star explained, referring to her 2008 chart-topping hit single “American Boy.” For Estelle, her timetable for guesting on the show is a definite, “maybe later, but not right now.”
Though she wonΓÇÖt mind if the kids of McKinley High tackle the “American Boy” lyrics without her. “Oh absolutely,” she exclaimed when TV DivaGal asked if she would let the show use the song outright.
Yep, I can just see it now: Kurt singing it as a dream ballad for his step-brother-to-be Finn.
Glee, season two, strikes back Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
