Justin Talks Britney On Oprah

Tonight is the final LA show of Justin's FutureSex/LoveTour (he still has to make up those two shows from last week, too) and to celebrate he went on Oprah for the first time ever. The show airs this afternoon and includes a performance with Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson. Team is going to be live chatting the whole thing here, but before then here are some of the juicy bits. Always the coy one, JT wouldn't tell Oprah who is his new "lovely" smelling girlfriend is (not that it's any secret) and how they keep in touch using iChat while he's off on the road - geeky awwww! More importantly though, he talked Britney. Here's more:

Oprah: What do you think is going on with Britney?

Justin: I don't know, to be honest with you. I haven't spoken to her in years. I mean, there's no ill will—I have nothing but love for her. It's funny because we dated each other at a time…wow, I haven't talked about this in a long time. It's interesting.

Oprah: But you've never talked about it to me, so it's okay.

Justin: Hey, let's get it in, girl.

Oprah: Let's get it in.

Justin: We were teenagers, you know?

Oprah: Yes, famous teenagers.

Justin: I think that's basically the best way to describe what happened to us. I think she's a great person, and I don't know her as well as I did …. What I do know about her is she has a huge heart, and she is a great person.

While we sometimes fantasize about Justin coming to save Britney from her own career self-destruction (especially with the rumors of a collaboration), it's clear that these two are a lifetime apart at this point. In any event, it's nice to hear that he has nothing but sweet things to say about his first love, even if that reunion is only a distant dream. Tune in this afternoon to hear all this straight from JT himself - we'll be chatting about the whoooole thing!

geez at one point they were the "IT" couple thats seems like after their split Britney started acting out. getting married in Vegas, kissing Madonna, marrying K-Fed and everything that led to.

I used to love Brit and Justin as a couple and wished they got back together for a while afterwards, even when she very first broke up with Kfed and turned up on Letterman (I think it was?) with that amazing new look, but that all went down the drain and I really couldn't imagine them together anymore.

JT kept going with famous people n good people while BRIT did the opposite of what JT did n that's made alot of people use her money n her success to be rich n famoue by her even the closest people to her used her ,that's made britney become like this .

I think it's nice that he speaks well of her. Especially with all the rumors that she cheated on him.

The best thing that I have ever seen Justin do was on SNL. Was it dick in a box? Oh I so funny.

he's completely over Britney. Britney was then young and hot. now she's just... a trashbag. sad.

I really think he's a jerk most of the time. But that was a really, really great answer about Britney. It shows that he can be mature when he wants to be. And honestly, I dont talk to ANYONE I dated, so why should we expect him to. I'm not enemies with anyone, I just move on and don't look back. It's funny that we expect celebrities to keep in touch just because they're celebrities. Now I can enjoy his music more. hee hee

I agree with Tiabia, it was Elisha Cuthbert in the second video...and in the first video it was because Britney cheated on him and lied about it. He could have easily told Oprah "She is turning into one crazy biatch" and he would have been justified (he he).

I like JT when he's not saying stuff that makes him sound conceited. However, I do like that he told MTV to actually play videos on their channel....I swear they maybe show one hour of videos a day..if that! It's show after stupid show. Blech.

If you're talking about "What Goes Around Comes Back Around"'s actually Elisha Cuthbert that "dies" in the fiery the song is about her and Trace Ayala's relationship. And it's not like Britney didn't go on and make her own reality tv show and talk about how much she LOVED sex!!!
hayworthgilda hayworthgilda 9 years
wow, it's almost like he didn't go on the radio, blab about taking her virginity and then make two videos railing against her, one of which leaves her dying in a fiery wreck. sure knows how to work the PR, doesn't he?

Good for him that he took the higher road on that question. Although, I'm kind of surprised he did. Given his usual cocky attitude, I would have assumed he would have ripped her down...especially considering he sang Rehab at one of his performances right around the time she entered or left rehab. Either way, good for him.

"More importantly they talked Britney" Please tell me you were being sarcastic when you wrote that. Britney is NOT important and neither is the fact that Justin spoke about her. Please this was a 1 minute conversation not even a big part of the interview. It must be beyond annoying to have someone keep bringing up your crazy a** ex, regardless of who they are. Drop it already people and let it be, I cannot believe Oprah had the audacity to ask him sh*t about Brit that's LAME.

i agree with the few comments on oprah i was beginning to feel the same way about her FAKENESS... and justin handled himself very good he could have said worse about miss spears cause im sure they still have mutual friends and business associates he knows he is just being politically correct which i dont blame him

I think it was very classy for him not to discuss Brit too much... man i wish she'd get her act together!

Am I the only person NOT delusional. Please compare and contrast these two...I seriously doubt Justin Timberlake wishes he was still with Spears or even with NSYNC. He may act the part of a douche, but he's beyond successful...Spears on the other hand...well, we all know how that situation is going!!!
