Looks like Britney Spears is extending an olive branch to her ex, Justin Timberlake, regarding some revelations in her autobiography, “The Woman in Me.” In the book, she claimed Timberlake urged her to get an abortion and accused him of cheating with “another celebrity.” But now, Spears seems to be saying sorry for the book drama.
Insta Apology and a Little Jam Session
So, Monday brought a surprise from Britney on Instagram. She shared a clip of Timberlake rocking out to his tunes with Jimmy Fallon on Saturday Night Live. Alongside the post, she dropped a bomb – an apology. She wrote, “I wanna apologize for some of the things I wrote about in my book.”
Britney didn’t hold back, expressing regret: “If I offended any of the people I genuinely care about, I am deeply sorry.” Then came the unexpected twist – praise for Timberlake’s new song, “Selfish.” She gave it a big thumbs up, saying it’s so good. Oh, and she couldn’t help but gush about how every time she sees Justin and Jimmy together, it’s a laughing fest.
A Musical Throwback – Selfish Edition
Now, here’s the kicker. Britney dropped a track in 2011 titled “Selfish,” and rumor has it that die-hard Britney fans are on a mission to push her “Selfish” track higher in the charts than Timberlake’s new single. Talk about a friendly chart competition.
For those needing a quick trip down memory lane, Britney and JT were an item from ’99 to ’02. The plot thickens when Spears spills the tea about contemplating an abortion back when she got pregnant. In her book, she spills that if it were up to her alone, she wouldn’t have gone through with it, but Timberlake was adamant about not wanting to be a dad.
Social Media Ripples and Justin’s Side
The book’s bombshells had social media buzzing, and Timberlake seemed to take cover by turning off comments on his Instagram for a bit. No official response yet, but back in 2021, he owned up to some shortcomings on Instagram, apologizing to both Britney and Janet Jackson for his past actions.
He wrote, “I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism. I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”
More Than Just Love Troubles
In Britney’s book, it’s not just about relationship drama. She spills the tea on her controversial conservatorship saga, painting herself as a “child robot.” She alleges her father took control of her personal and professional life, telling her, “I am Britney Spears now.”
Just last week, rumors were buzzing about a potential studio comeback, but Britney dropped a bombshell, saying she’s “never returning to the music industry.” Quite the plot twist after all the speculation.
In a Nutshell – Clearing the Air and Chart Wars
So, Britney’s putting it out there – apologies are in order for the book’s revelations. Justin’s staying mum so far, but fans are keeping an eye on the charts, eager to see if Britney’s “Selfish” can outshine Timberlake’s latest musical creation. In the world of pop, drama, and chart battles, this saga continues to unfold. Stay tuned.
