In news just in, Justin Timberlake has issued a public apology to both Janet Jackson and Britney Spears.
Full story below…
In a lengthy statement issued moments ago, JT addressed the drama that has plagued his career in the wake of his infractions against both ladies.
With Jackson, Timberlake took a laissez-faire (and arguably cocky) approach to the unfair treatment the diva took following their performance at the 2004 Super Bowl Halftime Show. A platform he would go on to headline himself in 2018. All after officials alluded to Jackson being banned.
As for Spears, the former NYSNC star’s exploitation of their relationship following their break-up saw the starlet ridiculed. Something that only intensified upon the release of the ‘Cry Me A River’ video – which played up the split and featured a Spears look-alike. All of which was chronicled anew last week in the documentary ‘Framing Britney Spears.’
Now, JT is acknowledging the wrong of his “actions” and the role his race and gender played in his privilege.
His statement read:
Long overdue. So overdue that, while appreciated, it’s a little hard to receive in totality.
Had Justin uttered these necessary words when still popping commercially (see: ‘FutureSexLoveSounds’ or ’20/20 Experience’), the sincerity would be less questionable.
Yet, it’s no secret that recent years have seen him put under increased scrutiny (to the point it’s affecting his Pop culture clout) and only then this “reflective” stance.
Still, credit where due. No matter which way it’s diced or sliced, he did apologize.
With that, it begs the question…what now?
Super Bowl producer explains what ACTUALLY happened:
Apology accepted but u still need ur àss beat cause ur a d*****
Too little m, too late.
It’s never too late for someone to apologize. Stop with that. That is a problem in our society
@ Chris – Shut up ugly! It is too late. If his career was still on top like it was in the past, he would’ve continued to pay them dust. It’s alway the ugly black ones like you always standing up for white people. Do better!
@Chase how TOLERANT of you! Yet isn’t that what you lefties spew? Tolerance and equality? Don’t make me LAUGH 🤣🤣🤣
if god can forgive than we can forgive too dont act like you dont do a lot of mistakes in your life !
These lefty Devils don’t believe in God. That’s part of the problem!
Nobody is obligated to forgive, and no one is owed forgiveness.
The Bible says otherwise.
He who is without sin and all that…
Only God can judge. You are not God. It is not for you to decide.
So you cherry picking bible verses ho? What about loving thy neighbor like thyself? An evil wench b**** that makes light of another woman’s cancer diagnosis shouldn’t use biblical to principles to advance an argument. And don’t try me ho…I have receipts. Ur dumb and a hypocrite.
What for???? That super bowl incident was a part of the script which is janet’s idea. She was part of it for the whole mess💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 Wonder why women always use their victim cards. Black peoples always use their race cards. Smh
I guess better late than never but agree it probably would’ve been more impactful at the height of his career
Those cards will soon dry and start getting DECLINED 💯🤣🤳🏽
People are having enough of this mess.
STFU…your white hood is showing 👻
Aint naan b***** seen no white hooded höes walking around since the early 1900s so sit yo ass down or pull up a picture off yo phone! We need RECEIPTS 🧾💯
Tell em marilyn monh-O-E, Janet had her tіts out every chance she got she become a stripper in that era. Fuск Janet and the fuск racist black people.
Dummy Danzou’s pressed and triggered I see. I LOVE to see it. 🥰😍💋
Yasssssss I love the new Fancy BISH!!!!! 💯💋
Insecure racist white people are always bringing up this imaginary “card” whenever white people are asked to be held accountable for anything. Get ready, this “card” is going to be swiped to the f****** max for as long as we live in a racist system.
Oh, it’s whites that bring up the card? 🤣🤣🤣 Y’all some hypocrites.
CARD DECLINED HÖE 💳
He did “apologize”
I’m ready and able to proof these articles for you guys.
We don’t need you to “proof” anything for us clown 🤡. In the future, “proofread” before trying to be shady.
@Chase I know it’s you Nancy CLOWN, you are in no position to give anybody grammar lessons. Go and have a shower, I can smell you nasty man pussу all the way here in NY or is that your breath I can smell?
It’s “I can smell YOUR nasty man p****” stupid. Talk about irony. Chase dragged ur dumb racist a$$ without having to say a damn word. LMAO!!
Drag dat clown Fancy BISH!!!! Yassssssssssss yasssssssssssss!!! 💯🤣🤳🏽
No Nancy CLOWN it’s just fine, you still haven’t explained what “the GB” means, well? I’m waiting. Don’t come for people because I will come back for you.
Deals starting to dry up??
One of the biggest benefactors of misogyny n racism since the early 2000s.
FACTS! The WHOLE motive.
We forgive you. Go on peace
ITS ABOUT GOD DAMN TIME!! Maybe this will start a trend of people apologize for what they have done… look at puffy (bad boy artist), R. kelly (the whole situation) and others for… what they have done!
And the ones you mentioned are both black so by TGJ mentioning Justin’s race as a privilege in these cases are null and void
F*** HIM!!!!!!!! Too little too late! He knows his career is dead! Karma b****!!!
Shut up you biased raving Britney fanatic
What things will he put in place to try to rectify some of the damage, because “I’m sorry” does not even begin to undo the years of turmoil these two women have suffered privately and publicly.
This apology serves him more than anyone, because it improves the public perception of him ahead of his new album and helps him to maintain the same platform he chose over Britney and Janet when he threw them under the bus.
Apologize for what? The raunchy music business? The music business exploited his young sexuality too! He is only a year older now than the age Janet was at her Super Bowl headline. Let that sink in. All these years and he is finally her age then. He was asked to rip off her clothes and it was NOT his idea. He was asked under a signed contract I may add to rip off a bra! The truth will come OUT! Jermaine Dupri even knows the truth. Yes, Janet was wronged but not by Justin Timberlake. By the media.
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were exploited by the media. Period. He played to their narrative and Britney also released music about their relationship. He was young too. He does not have to apologize for being cheated on. Britney has not even watched the documentary. She released a statement saying she cares deeply still about Justin. THEY ARE GOOD. They know their truth.
He apologized for the delusional INTERNET trolls who placed false blame on him. On period. And the demonic media will eat it up when it’s truly their fault in the first place for exploiting teens. As Brandy’s mom said, the music business is the raunchiest business alive.
Girl stfu. No one is about to read your autobiography!
Nobody cares about Chase. That’s for damn sure.
This this and THIS @1989
Their username is 1988 you dummy!
I know, DUMBASS!!! That’s why I put “@1989” as that was who the fück I was talking to BÏTCH
@ Queen of Dumbs….that don’t make no damn sense. You’re dumb.
Too little, too late!!! It’s easy to apologize when it benefits your career, but when it was needed, and when it would have meant something, and when you were relevant, we got crickets. You’re a little b****, making little b**** moves and you’ll always be a little b**** and this “apology” is just another little b**** move. Girl bye.
His album must be ready 🥴
God says to forgive him but I dont know if the timing is right …I’d love to see a response from the ladies
Read this article and make sure you read the part about Salli Frattini who produced the infamous 2004 Super Bowl. Also read the part about Janet’s stylist shopping for nipple rings at Byriah Dailey piercing shop. Dailey still has the one for the other breast..only one was purchased. Janet’s stylist only purchased one. Again, only one was purchased. One. One. One. LMAO
Janet had been wearing nipple rings since the Velvet Rope era. Try again, heaux!
Reading is fundamental. 🙂
Janet has already admitted to the “wardrobe malfunction” being planned…
And if Britney hadn’t lied about being a virgin for so many years, the fact that she’d cheated on Justin wouldn’t have been such an embarrassment for her. But still, she did it to herself. They both did.
Race and gender has NOTHING to do with it.
The face that HE has to apologize just goes to show that it’s HIM who has ZERO privilege as he has to bow down like a dog to his master for forgiveness like we see so many white people, specifically WHITE MEN having to do. So stop with this demonizing of the “EVIL WHITE MAN.”
Please go jump off a bridge. Do it for 2021.
After you, bish. You ain’t EVER getting rid of ME and that’s on PERIODT Pooh! 💯🤣🤳🏽
Put it to you this way: Janet apologized soon after the Super Bowl and was still blacklisted for years. Justin’s music was and still is on the radio regardless of this apology. No shelved singles, a second Super Bowl gig, and still making movie deals… that is PRIVILEGE at its finest.
It wasn’t his bare breast and his headlining performance lol
But he pulled the s*** off ho. He was part and parcel of the debacle, yet his career profited and proliferated, while Janet’s plunged. Ur a stupid b**** that doesn’t understand “impeachment” or “privilege.”
good on him but I’m still waiting on Janet’s new album and not interested in whatever he’s serving. #FreeBritney
Dude you’re just like the majority of white men who exploit women and people of color for money and personal gain.
When it’s all said and done, you’re going to die and the money will no longer matter.
He’s spoken about it multiple times in the past. He’s apologised to Janet privately in the past, she’s said as much herself. I don’t see what he needed to apologise for if it happened as he said it happened. And there isn’t much difference between his version of events and the superbowl producer’s, so writing “superbowl producer explains what ACTUALLY” happened is misleading.
Because people don’t want an apology, they want a reason to HATE
“Too little, too late” as far as Ms. Jackson is concerned IMO. How I WISH Janet would post those four words on her Twitter/IG. But I know that if she says anything, she will be gracious…
I’m just here for the comments 😂
Yassssssssssss yasssssssss!! STIR IT UP SOME, I do 😉
His last album flopped. All these white men apologizing I can’t 💀
Finally!!! And during Black History Month, no less! I can accept the late apology as genuine because you don’t really do a lot of self-reflection and learning when you’re riding high on success. It’s not until you face some kind of adversity, challenge or struggle that you stop and think about what you’re doing. Now if we could just clear up that whole Prince thing we’d be squared away! LOL!
Thanks for the apology but you waited this long to apologize!!! C’mon JT, because your career gas already peaked and now you felt sorry. I’m not buying it. Too little too late.
The timing is quite suspicious to believe this is honest or uninterested.
Why did Americans complain about seeing a covered up tit in the first place ?!
It’s not like there isn’t worse on TV.
Acting like fake prudes, please.
if god can forgive than we can forgive too dont act like you dont do a lot of mistakes in your life ! DJ MoreMusic
