A few weeks ago, Britney Spears was asked with whom she would want to collaborate on the radio show “Most Requested Live.”
“Aerosmith seems really good and bright. He [Steven Tyler] is a genius, I think. He’s very rock ‘n’ roll. He sings from his soul. Gwen Stefani, I think she’s great. Justin Timberlake is very good,” Spears said, as our jaws dropped to the freakin’ floor.
Apparently, JT managed to miss all of the Spears/Timberlake collaboration headlines on the internet, as if you would ever miss an ex-girlfriend name- dropping your married self. No chance. We KNOW Joey Fatone sent him a text or two.
When E! News asked the singer if he would collaborate with Spears, Timberlake acted super surprised his ex mentioned him, saying “She did? Sure! Absolutely, absolutely.”
“I have a 17-month-old, so I don’t get the headline news,” Timberlake said. “I apologize for not being in the know … I’m accessible, you know, [putting on an accent while looking at the camera] ‘Give us a call!’”
It’s unclear who the “us” is in that quote (JT and the rest of *NSYNC? Justin and his wife, Jessica Biel?), but we’re looking forward to more news about this collaboration.
