Gabourey Sidibe Wants On 'Glee'

Gabourey Sidibe is the latest Hollywood star hoping to get in on the “Glee” action.

“I love ‘Glee,’” she told People at the American Cancer Society’s Choose You initiative luncheon in New York on Wednesday. “I live and breathe for Amber Riley – as well as her character Mercedes.”

Following her appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” the world knows Gabourey can carry a tune, but the star – who turns 27 today – isn’t look for a musical showdown.

“But I wouldn’t want to have a sing off with Amber because she’s actually a friend of mine,” she continued. “She’s amazing and fun and it would be so cool to be on the show with her and hang out with the cast. I’m a huge fan.”

As for birthday plans, Gabourey is going to keep it simple.

“I’m going to get my nails done!” the “Precious” star explained. “It’s fun to get a little pampered on your birthday.”

Yet, when it comes to gifts, the Oscar-nominated actress is thinking a bit bigger.

“I want an apartment,” she said. “I want an eccentric billionaire to buy me a Manhattan apartment!”
