Update, 9/1: Seems Brit Brit isn't the only pop singer heading to Miami—Kesha has just signed on to guest star in season 2 of Jane the Virgin as well, according to E! News (opens in new tab). But unlike Britney, who will be playing herself, Kesha will be playing Annabelle, a new next door neighbor of Jane who is not a fan of living next to a crying baby.
The role will come into play on episode two, and will be Kesha's first acting role, and it seems Kesha is super excited:
Stoked!!!!! I’ll be making a guest starring appearance on @CWJanetheVirgin on @CW! 💃💃September 1, 2015
And she's not alone. Gina Rodriguez is quite pumped, too:
And considering Rodriguez has name-dropped other celebs (opens in new tab) she'd love to have on her show, we'd say this is only the beginning.
Original story, 8/11: Everything about this is amazing: Britney Spears is heading to Marbella Hotel, as she'll be joining the cast of Jane the Virgin for an episode in season 2, reports Time (opens in new tab).
The performer will have a small part as Rogelio De La Vega's "nemesis." De La Vega is a telenovela superstar and father to Jane Villanueva, played by Gina Rodriguez.
See u at the Marbella Hotel soon, @hereisgina @jaimecamil! 🙈 Guest starring on one of my favorite shows EVER @CWJaneTheVirgin #DreamComeTrueAugust 11, 2015
"We are so thrilled that Rogelio's 'nemesis'—Britney Spears—has agreed to appear on Jane The Virgin in episode 205," Jennie Snyder Urman said in a statement. "Personally, after hearing about their long-standing feud (from Rogelio's point of view), we are eager to hear Ms. Spears' side of the story, which we assume is quite different. #TeamBritney"
Clearly, Gina Rodriguez is just as excited as the rest of us:
