Justin Bieber not guesting on Glee, Mark Salling and other major stars rumored to be leaving show
Clevver TV video: Justin Bieber invited to guest star on Glee?
Glee creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy said the hit TV series is "NOT doing a Justin Bieber tribute episode... this season," Perez Hilton reported on January 9. "Those are reserved for artists with a big catalogue, ala Madonna and Britney (Spears)." However, Murphy said Chord Overstreet (Sam) will copy Bieber’s hairstyle and sing one of his songs to win back his character’s love interest, Quinn (played by Dianna Agron), in an upcoming episode.
A few days before Murphy commented on Perez Hilton though, Bieber told The Sun that he has been offered a Glee cameo. The international singing sensation said he will only appear on the show if Cheryl Cole, the 27-year-old singer and The X Factor judge, guest stars as well. Bieber, 16, said last year that his ideal woman is "a younger version of Cheryl and Katy (Perry)."
Bieber told The Sun last week, "(Cheryl) looks beautiful, but I am not sure she could quite get away with playing a student. It would be great if she played a substitute teacher taking a sabbatical from England or something. Can you imagine how hot Cheryl would look dressed as a school teacher?"
Meanwhile, some major stars of Glee may be replaced in 2012 after their characters graduate, like Mark Salling (Puck) and Cory Monteith (Finn) who are both 28 years old. Perez Hilton quoted Glee creator Ryan Murphy last month: "There’s nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot. I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers’ lives-they graduate, and they’re gone. When some of them finish their run at high school it will be very teary episodes."
