Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake might be getting back together—in a strictly musical sense, of course. Brit recently said she'd like to collaborate with JT, who you may remember she dated from 1999 to 2002. Here, refresh your memory.
Before the VMAs, Spears participated in a Q&A and was asked who she wanted to work with. After mentioning Aerosmith and Gwen Stefani, she said of her former paramour: "Justin Timberlake is very good.”
And exciting news, internet! JT is game (reminder: this is for a platonic, musical collaboration). When told that Brit had requested to work with him, JT said he was surprised and onboard. "She did? Sure! Absolutely, absolutely," he told E! News. "I have a 17 month old so I don't get the headline news," he added. "I apologize for not being in the know… I'm accessible, give us a call!"
In regular human terms, this is kind of like when you reach out to your ex with a text just to say "sup?" and your ex texts back a week later: "Hi! yes, we should get a coffee sometime. Btw I'm married and have a baby."
It's not 1999 anymore and we all have to accept that and move on. Or wait until this Brit/JT single comes out and live in the past forever.
