Personal Life And Career
Britney Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi to Lynne Irene and James Parnell Spears. She was brought up in Kentwood, Louisiana and was interested in performing arts from a very young age. In 1992, she auditioned for The Mickey Mouse Club and was selected this time along with other child artists like Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, and Christina Aguilera. The show was canceled after two seasons and Spears went back to Kentwood. From 1999 to 2002, Britney Spears was involved with her celebrity star from The Mickey Mouse Club days, Justin Timberlake. In 2000, both the stars confirmed their relationship to the media and they broke up in 2002, with rumors flying around everywhere that Spears cheated on him. In 2004, she became engaged with Kevin Federline, an American back dancer, and got married after sometime and had two children. In 2006, she filed for divorce with Fedeline and they both agreed to share the joint custody of their two children.
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake called it quits two decades ago, but fans were still invested in their rocky romance. The former boy bander and pop princess met in the early ’90s while filming The Mickey Mouse Club. In 1999, as their careers skyrocketed, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake confirmed that they were dating. While the twosome often gushed about each other and infamously rocked matching denim outfits at the 2001 American Music Awards, their relationship came to an end in early 2002. Their split quickly turned messy after Justin Timberlake released his song, titled Cry Me a River, and opened up about their relationship to Barbara Walters.
Britney Spears memoir, The Woman In Me, was causing quite the stir with the amount of revelations stemming from it, including tea on all her exes, but one particular interaction between Justin Timberlake and Ginuwine has Black Twitter in a frenzy. In the now-viral snippet from the audiobook narrated by actress Michelle Williams, the unique exchange between Justin Timberlake and Ginuwine remains burned in Britney Spears brain. She said that one day, she and Justin Timberlake were in New York, going to parts of town they have never been to before. Walking their way was a guy with a huge blinged-out medallion. He was flanked by two giant security guards. Justin Timberlake got all excited and said so loud, Oh yeahhhh. Fo shizz. Fo shizz. Ginuwineeee, what’s up homie?
After the Ginuwine incident, the reflection comes from the era when NSYNC was mesmerized by Black artists, but according to Britney Spears, the group tried too hard to fit in. Williams narrated that Justin Timberlake’s band NSYNC was what people back then called so pimp. They were white boys, but they loved Hip-Hop. To Williams, that’s what separated them from the Backstreet Boys, who seemed very consciously to position themselves as a white group. NSYNC hung out with Black artists. One person tweeted and said that he gagged when it was revealed who Justin Timberlake was throwing on a blaccent for and another added that Michelle Williams doing an impression of Britney Spears doing an impression of Justin Timberlake doing an impression of a Black person. Meanwhile, someone else unearthed footage from a Chris Rock monologue discussing Justin Timberlake’s blaccent.
