Justin Timberlake made an appearance a pre-Superbowl party in New Orleans, and performed on stage for the first time in years. While Justin’s performance at the show was definitely a hit, his speech before he sang ‘Cry Me a River’ definitely raised some eyebrows, especially as he made a not-so-discrete remark about his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears.
Before he sang the song, he opened with, “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out that she is just some bitch.” While the song is without a doubt one of JT’s biggest hits, everyone knows that the song is about his relationship with Britney Spears and the aftermath of the relationship where he found out that she was cheating on him.
When Britney’s fans on Twitter started bashing Justin for making the comment, he went on the record and tweeted, “Ok. I see you. Wouldn’t disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love saying that though *with accent*.”
While he clarifies that he wasn’t trying to ‘personally’ insult anyone, it’s still clear from that comment that he’s making a diss, albeit indirectly, against Britney Spears, especially with the ‘It’s Britney Bitch’ hashtag. Not only that, but he seems to be justifying it, saying that while he wouldn’t insult her ‘personally’, it’s ok for him to call her ‘some bitch’ because of the quote from her song ‘Gimme More’.
