Justin Timberlake Talks About His Relationship With Britney Spears

The relationship between Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears is one we still weep privately over.  Why did it have to end?  Are we to believe that Britney Spears cheated on Timberlake with this?

Nowadays, Timberlake is sexy and popular and friends with cool people.  And Spears, um…how do I say this without crying.  Spears has fallen ever-so-slightly from grace.  We still love her (increasingly auto-toned) music, though we yearn for sharper dance moves and afternoons on TRL.  Wait…

Vanity Fair interviewed Timberlake for their July issue, and he touched on his romance with Spears.  The Friends With Benefits star told VF contributing editor Vanessa Grigoriadis, “I wish her the best—that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years.”  Timberlake continued,

We were two birds of the same feather—small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person.  I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”

Seems like it was only yesterday that Timberlake and Spears walked the red carpet in his-and-hers denim get-ups.
