The Only Exception is the exception in Glee

So I saw last night’s Glee episode along with a bajillion of people. The second episode of the second season was a Britney episode (not too different from the Madonna episode – only about twenty-five years younger). Thank God it wasn’t an episode like the real Britney Spears is stuck in the middle of the country and just happened to pass by their high school, but instead, Britney shows up in their fantasies as they were high in whatever rape drug Karl (Carl?) the dentist was using on these kids. The dentist by the way was played by Uncle Jesse. And the Rippers.

Anyway – Heather Morris, hands down, carried the episode. Who knew this Beyonce back up dancer had it in her? Sure – she’s just an okay actress, sorta good singer, but she sure can dance. Oh, also found out her full name is Brittany Susan Pierce – Britanny S. Pierce. I’m dying here. Anyway, she did a “Slave 4 U” cover while wearing every possible Britney outfit: the nude with diamonds, the red latex suit, the albino boa charmer. She also did a duet with Santana – “Me Against the Music”. If the writers’ goal for the episode is to celebrate Heather Morris, good job. If it was to pay homage to Britney, it was rather meh-ish. I’m just happy Britney was barely in it. She’s no actress. Somebody needs to tell her that. I know – I’ve seen Crossroads. After seeing the movie, I seriously questioned my taste in movies.

Now the clincher really was the last song sung in the episode – it was not a Britney song! What the fuck was that about? I really think this one Paramore song took away the focus from the Britney-themed episode. I know that’s true because after watching it, I purchased the Paramore song without even considering to download any of the Spears song – original or Glee-covers.

Here’s The Only Exception, with lyrics below. Oh, go ahead and fall in love with Hayley Williams, it’s cool:

 

When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched as he tried to reassemble it

And my mama swore
That she would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I’d never sing of love
If it does not exist

But, darling, you are the only exception
But you are the only exception
But you are the only exception
But you are the only exception

Well, maybe I know somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we’ve got to find other ways
To make it alone
Or keep a straight face

And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable distance
And up until now, I had sworn to myself
That I’m content with loneliness
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

Well, you are the only exception
Well, you are the only exception
Well, you are the only exception
Well, you are the only exception

I’ve got a tight grip on reality
But I can’t let go of what’s in front of me here
I know you’re leaving in the morning when you wake up
Leave me of some kind of proof it’s not a dream, oh

You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
And I’m on my way to believing
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing
