Sometimes, there are just people who want to stir up trouble. That happened recently after a Justin Timberlake concert where people believed he was slamming his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears. According to Yahoo News on Feb. 4, Timberlake shot down the rumors by saying that was not the case.
The entire controversy started when Timberlake was in between songs. He made the comment, "sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out, that she is just some b***h." He then launched into his hit song, "Cry Me a River."
Of course, that was probably just Timberlake's way of launching into the song, giving a nice lead in to the theme of the tune. However, all public figures comments are scrutinized, and immediately everyone thought he was insulting Britney Spears. That kind of makes sense, because both individuals are high profile public figures.
However, claiming that it had to be about Spears almost makes it seem like she is Timberlake's only ex. He could have been talking about anyone, or he could have just been talking to make the intro to the song more powerful. But, then again, in the video for the song Timberlake had a Britney look-a-like, so there is that proof that the song was about Spears.
"We were two birds of the same feather - small-town kids, doing same thingm" Timberlake said in an interview back in 2011. "But when you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn't make any sense. I won't speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person."
One has to think he still feels the same way, especially after his recent marriage to Jessica Biel. But don't let that stop a good rumor from getting underway.
