OMG, you guys. You won't believe what Justin Timberlake said about Britney Spears -- right in front of a TON of people at Saturday's DirecTV Super Bowl concert in New Orleans. Apparently he got caught up in some stage banter right before singing "Cry Me a River," and, well, things got nasty. REALLY nasty.
Not only that, but his less-than-kind words about Britney weren't exactly completely respectful to his current wife, Jessica Biel. Oh, what a terrible situation! According to several breathless tabloid publications, this is DEFINITIVE PROOF that Justin is totally not over Britney yet!
Or ... not. Personally, I find it very hard to believe that Justin's still pining over Britney Spears, all these years later. He did make a fairly biting statement before singing "Cry Me a River," though:
Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out that she is just some bitch.
That's according to a HollywoodLife.com reporter, who was in the audience at the event.
So, what do you think -- was he really talking about Britney? After all, it's fairly public knowledge that "Cry Me a River" is about their relationship, and how she allegedly cheated on him with choreographer Wade Robson. (And the song has since become a sort of go-to anthem for disgruntled, lovelorn pop singers.)
After Timberlake started receiving some backlash for describing his ex as "just some bitch," he clarified his statement via Twitter:
And by "clarified" I mean "threw in some hashtags because that makes everything better." Seriously, I have no idea what that tweet even means, except I guess he could be saying that his stage banter was about a bad relationships in general, not his specific relationship with Britney Spears. Because every guy can identify with finding out his girl is just some bitch! RESPECT. *thumps chest*
Or maybe he's saying he didn't say it at all. I'm not sure Hollywood Life is the most rock-solid of sources, actually. But even assuming he DID say it ... and even if he WAS referring to his own feelings back in 2002, I'm going to go out on a limb and theorize that he is not in fact still carrying a torch for Ms. Spears. I'm thinking that unlike the media, Justin moved on years ago.
What's your call -- was it weird for Justin Timberlake to (maybe) refer to Britney as a bitch onstage?
