New episode of CW dramedy features guest turn from “Toxic” singer
Britney Spears is coming to “Jane The Virgin,” and Rogelio de la Vega, for one, is not happy about it.
In the trailer for next week’s episode of the CW dramedy, the “Toxic” singer is seen appearing as herself, making Jane (Gina Rodriguez) pretty excited but her dad (Jaime Camil) less so.
Rogelio and Britney have a long-standing feud, and by the way she’s purposely pretending to have forgotten his name in the footage, it’s not hard to see why.
“Britney comes in for a very specific reason, something that’s happening at the hotel,” showrunner Jennie Urman said earlier of Spears’ appearance. “Once Rogelio learns she’s in town, he gets very upset. We learn that he thinks she’s been avoiding him for years and we learn about their history, their friendship and why he considers her his nemesis.”
Whatever the specific reason, she does make time to have a little dance-off with Jane to “Toxic.”
“Jane The Virgin” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
