Last night I binged watched Framing Britney Spears which is a new documentary on Hulu.
First off, my heart just aches for Britney. Everything she has gone through, just shows what a strong woman she is.
But there was one thing in particular that really got under my skin – Justin Timberlake.
Look, I am a 90’s baby and I was OBSESSED with Britney Spears and NSYNC growing up and I just loved when Britney and Justin were a thing.
But I also remember their break up. I felt so sad and upset because I thought they were meant for each other.
If you remember this time, you’d know that Justin famously made a song called “Cry Me A River” and even had a Britney lookalike in his video to bash Britney.
It led us all to believe that Britney cheated on Justin and for a while, fans like myself, hated her for it.
Well, this documentary paints a very different picture for us.
In fact, if you ask me, I think it was Justin that had started the storm for Britney and made her spiral out of control.
He painted her as some slut that cheated on him, broke his heart and left him.
But then we see a glimpse of him bragging that he slept with Britney Spears and it was disgusting.
Even the interview of Britney talking about what happened, she is crying. She is clearly upset and wants to talk about it but doesn’t.
The entire way Britney was treated by the media, by fans, by so many people, was digusting.
And it all started with Justin Timberlake…
Honestly, none of us have any real idea what happened between the two, we just know what the aftermath was from the media.
BUT, he knowingly made a song and comments to bash Britney in the public eye and that is so wrong.
Even IF she had cheated, he shouldn’t have aired that dirty laundry, that was wrong either way. Their relationship should have been kept private.
Bottom line is – Justin owes Britney an apology. He even owns the fans an apology for making himself look like Prince Charming while Britney was painted as the wicked witch of the west.
So, Justin, be a man here and own up to your mistake. You wronged Britney and now the world wants an apology.
