Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and More Off-the-Charts TV Guest Gigs

Oops! She's doing it again ...

She would, of course, be Britney Spears, who's set to guest-star on Jane the Virgin this fall. This certainly isn't Spears' first time in front of the camera (more on that later), though there's a good chance Jane's wacky telenovela sensibility – not to mention a potential scene partner in Golden Globe-winning star Gina Rodriguez – will suit the "(You Drive Me) Crazy" singer's acting style.
