Justin Timberlake @ Oprah

Justin Timberlake @ Oprah

Justin Timberlake only had good things to say about former girlfriend Britney Spears despite her making headlines for out-of-the-ordinary behavior:

Oprah: What do you think is going on with Britney?

Justin: I don’t know, to be honest with you. I haven’t spoken to her in years. I mean, there’s no ill will—I have nothing but love for her. It’s funny because we dated each other at a time…wow, I haven’t talked about this in a long time. It’s interesting.

Oprah: But you’ve never talked about it to me, so it’s okay.

Justin: Hey, let’s get it in, girl.

Oprah: Let’s get it in.

Justin: We were teenagers, you know?

Oprah: Yes, famous teenagers.

Justin: I think that’s basically the best way to describe what happened to us. I think she’s a great person, and I don’t know her as well as I did …. What I do know about her is she has a huge heart, and she is a great person.

    Come on….Have’nt talked to her in yrs? Are you kidding? Does anyone buy this bullsh*t?!? Yes he did handle the question well but Brit’s sister and father were at his concert the other night. Timberland even admitted that he spoke w/ Brit about recording a song together but she wasn’t being serious enough. Justin lives in that bubble of a word called “celebrities” They all know what’s going on with eachother. I love how he “faked” his way in saying “Oh wow – this is wierd – I haven’t talked about this in yrs” Who doesn’t talk about their past? – everyone does. I don’t buy it for a second. Nice try Justin!!!!!!!

    what did you expect him to say “she’s a complete mess, i pity her.” ??? he was just being politically correct and managing his own image.

    Lulu Says:

    I’d really like to know what people would say he said something like “she’s the **** who cheated on me, i hate her”.

    People can say what they want but he had the right to do cry me a river, lots of singers do that kind of song, the only difference with him is that his ex is famous.

    Apparently some of y’all never got past your high school circle, because to most grown people who have moved on and made new friends and new moves, they don’t really know much about their former teen flames. Don’t know and don’t care.

    Hell yeah Spear’s sister went to the JT concert, he’s an amazing performer. That doesn’t mean they hung out afterwards.

    He doesn’t give a sh*it about Britney, he doesn’t wish her ill will, but he doesn’t care about her that way at all. Cameron Diaz would have been a better question to ask honestly.

    Nathan Says:

    He already hated on her for, like, a year to sell “Justified.” Of course, he has no ill will towards her now because she’s a complete mess and everyone can see that. He doesn’t need to say a damn thing.

    Dominique Says:

    I just watched Oprah and well he answered the question like any PR would. This is Justin. I think Justin said what he had to say about Britney on Justified.

    I also think he is tired of people asking him about Britney and when he said “I haven’t spoken to her in years”, I think he was trying to point out that he doesn’t know Britney anymore and he doesn’t want to know her also. She was his girlfriend back in his teenager years days and that was it. What can he say about someone he doesn’t know anymore? As for the break up, well “Cry me a River” speaks for itself.

    At least he did finally come out and say that he is dating someone. He just didn’t say Jessica Biel.

    I really do think Justin still has a lot to learn when it comes to living with the paparazzi. I like what Oprah said… Not that I think paparazzi are right but I do think they are part of the celebrity deal these days.

    the way it really is Says:

    You’re giving Timberlake too much credit for being nice and a gentleman. He’s acting like any normal human being.

    If Britney Spears had cheated on Timberlake and gone on and had a super, long career and great love life with a new man, deep down Timberlake would feel resentment… BUT

    Britney didn’t do that. Timberlake was mad at her for a while. Just listen to the words to his songs. But Britney got payback. She fell steeply from grace. Her marriage tanked, her career is three-quarters in the gutter. And she’s acting mental.

    Timberlake would be a monster to kick her now when she is so low. He feels like whatever hurt she may have caused him in the past, it’s all forgiven now. He just feels sorry for her. He got justice and his anger has subsided.
