Justin TImberlake has broken his silence over Britney Spears, reports MTV News.
The former high-profile couple began dating in the late 90s and ended their relationship in 2001. Both Spears and Timberlake have kept relatively mum about their relationship over the years, but now, Timberlake is wishing her nothing but greatness for the future:
“I wish her the best — that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years,” he told ‘Vanity Fair’ magagzine.
“We were two birds of the same feather — small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then 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. I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
He also seems to think that they had too much power and freedom at such a young age:
“It was exciting that we were having so much success and we could do whatever we wanted. And I mean that about everybody: Backstreet Boys, ’NSync, Britney, Christina. We could literally go, ‘Oh, man, let’s go to Bali,’ and we’d be on a plane to Bali. We were little kids with big toys. You do the math — that’s not going to last.”
They were a great couple, but it all seemed quite forced and fake. Timberlake is obviously far better than any other man Britney has dated (cough, Kfed) but I don’t think it was true love. Her new boyfriend, Jason Trawick, seems good for her. Let’s hope he’s the one.
