Britney Spears Praises Justin Timberlake’s New Music

Britney Spears has spoken out in support of her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake’s new music, after her fans made a major effort to overshadow her latest release by pushing one of her old songs back into the charts.

Last week, Justin dropped his first solo music in six years, Selfish, which prompted Britney fans to start buying her 2011 song of the same name, causing it to rank higher than her famous ex in many territories.

This comes after a series of revelations about the Circus singer’s relationship with Justin in his 2023 book, The Woman In Me.

On Monday morning, a clip of Justin performing the song with talk show host Jimmy Fallon was posted on Britney’s Instagram page, alongside the message: “I want to apologize for some of the things I wrote in my book. If I offended one of the people I truly care about, I am truly sorry.

“I also want to say that I am in love with Justin Timberlake’s new song, Selfish… It’s so good.”

In recent history, the media storm that Britney endured in the mid-2000s has been reexamined as part of the #FreeBritney movement, as has Justin’s role in the public denigration of her.

Justin issued a public apology to Britney and Janet Jackson in 2021, calling them women he “loved” and “respected” that “I know I failed.”

“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to a problem, when I spoke inappropriately, or did not speak up for what was right,” Justin wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.

“I understand that I failed in these and many other moments and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism. I also feel compelled to respond, in part because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be a part of and grow.”
