While Britney Spears has acted only a handful of times on American television, her cameos often have as much quality as Crossroads, and her comedic presence is a gosh darn delight every time. (She was also pretty charming pre-fame in this sketch with Chistina and Justin when the three were on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club.)
I’ve never been a big fan of Britney Spears–as a teen I channeled my rebellion into voting for Limp Bizket on TRL–but Britney’s stint on Jane the Virgin this month was a heavenly blessing. She was as joyous and charming as the show. She was a gift! She was the queen! She was everything we need in a household name guest star.
