When some pop stars break the genres and give themselves on (or several) appearances on a TV show, fans cannot hide their excitement! Focus on 6 pop stars we saw on the small screen.

Ariana Grande in Scream Queens

It is hard to miss the popular pop star Ariana Grande in Scream Queens, Ryan Murphy’s show. The singer plays Chanel#2 in this horror anthology. And it is not a lightning visit for the Thank U, next singer who appears in 4 episodes.

Prince in New Girl

Prince’s (and New Girl) fans remember season 3, episode 14 of the show all too well. And for good reason, we can see Prince, as crazy as it may seem, appear amongst the populars faces seen in New Girl! The heroes of the sitcom find themselves invited to a party organized by none other than Prince himself. While Jess and Nick’s relationship is in crisis, the singer is going to give some advice to Zooey Deschanel’s character. What a scene!

Lady Gaga in American Horror Story

What other TV show than American Horror Story could have had the pleasure of having Lady Gaga? None. The most subversive pop star was kind of a muse for Ryan Murphy and he offered her a role two times. It’s in American Horror Story : Hotel and American Horror Story : Roanoke that the Little Monsters (her fanbase’s name) can see their idol.

Pete Wentz in One Tree Hill

The rock band Fall Out Boy left its mark on total American rock fans in the 2000s. Therefore, fans were totally shocked when they discovered that the bass player of the group, Pete Wentz, had a role in One Tree Hill third season. If he played himself, his arrival on the show was far from unnoticed!

Britney Spears in How I Met Your Mother

Between Britney Spears and TV shows, it’s a big love story. Several times, the legendary pop star from the 2000s appeared in different series. However, fans mostly remember her role as Barney’s temporary girlfriend in How I Met Your Mother.

Ed Sheeran in Game of Thrones

When a very popular British artist guest-stars in a highly praised TV show, people talk! Ed Sheeran had a very small part in Game of Thrones, but this small apparition was well noticed. It’s in the first episode of the seventh season that fans of the Shivers singer recognize him as a soldier. A very brief scene that led to extensive press coverage!
