    Justin Timberlake Apparently Wrote About Britney Spears In His New Book And People Have A Lot Of Thoughts

    "Justin Timberlake is still talking about Britney in 2018??? Get a life, man."

    Here's a fact that might make you feel old — it's been almost two whole decades since Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears were in a relationship. Wild, right?

    So, why are we even talking about them in the same sentence right now, all these years later? Well, because Justin is and, as you probably guessed, people aren't happy about it.

    This all comes about just after the release of Justin's latest autobiography, Hindsight: And All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me, which was published a couple of days ago. In the book, he wrote about the particular breakup that inspired the song "Cry Me A River".

    "I’ve been scorned. I’ve been pissed off," he wrote in the book. "I wrote 'Cry Me a River' in two hours. I didn’t plan on writing it. The feelings I had were so strong that I had to write it, and I translated my feelings into a form where people could listen and, hopefully, relate to it."

    Although he didn't name names, EVERYBODY knows "Cry Me A River" is about Britney. I mean, there's literally a Britney lookalike in the video.

    Well, as you can imagine, when people heard Justin was apparently talking about Britney again, they weren't too happy about it.

    Justin Timberlake still mentions Britney after 16 YEARS since their break up! He really cannot have a career without mentioning her literally every single interview! 😱😱😱 https://t.co/htyqTsrQbu

    The headline should say: Justin Timberlake admits to still talking about his split from Britney Spears 15 years after his split from Britney Spears! https://t.co/ZKmEBl54pb

    Like, they were really pissed.

    Justin Timberlake thrives off the downfall of other women. And he’s aware of this. Which is why in 2018 he’s still talking about how Britney “scorned” him. I’m so glad Britney has always lived off her own hustle. She’s a strong woman who’s overcome so much in life, JT is a loser

    Justin Timberlake is still talking about Britney in 2018??? get a life, man

    Fans of both stars were even fighting it out on the timeline.

    @PLG_JT2020 That’s hilarious since Justin can’t go 6 months without bringing Britney up in an interview.

    @PLG_JT2020 Britney: icon, legend, princess Justin: Timberlake

    But in fairness, Britney looks like she's too busy enjoying her life and doing backflips to pay attention, so I guess all is well.
