They say, “Gladys, you know you work too hard….”

Gladys Knight will guest star on Lee Daniels‘ forthcoming Fox series, “Star.”

According to Deadline, the legendary diva will play herself on the show.

Playing herself, the Empress of Soul is Alexandra’s (Ryan Destiny) music idol and the aunt of Danielle (guest star Jasmine Burke), who works in Carlotta’s (Queen Latifah) Salon. When Danielle arranges for Ms. Knight to introduce the girls at the Taylor Brothers Hair Show, the girls are honored beyond belief.

Fox will air a special premiere of “Star” following the “Empire” fall finale on December 14.

Watch the official trailer below.
