Sexy singer Justin Timberlake took a seat on Oprah‘s famed couch yesterday. And, of course, Oprah ventured into previously forbidden territory: Timberlake’s storied romance with train wreck Britney Spears.
Read the lackluster exchange, after the jump.
Oprah: What do you think is going on with Britney?
Justin: I donâ€™t know, to be honest with you. I havenâ€™t spoken to her in years. I mean, thereâ€™s no ill willâ€”I have nothing but love for her. Itâ€™s funny because we dated each other at a timeâ€¦wow, I havenâ€™t talked about this in a long time. Itâ€™s interesting.
Oprah: But youâ€™ve never talked about it to me, so itâ€™s okay.
Justin: Hey, letâ€™s get it in, girl.
Oprah: Letâ€™s get it in.
Justin: We were teenagers, you know?
Oprah: Yes, famous teenagers.
Justin: I think thatâ€™s basically the best way to describe what happened to us. I think sheâ€™s a great person, and I donâ€™t know her as well as I did â€¦. What I do know about her is she has a huge heart, and she is a great person.
Ug. It would have been way more interesting had JT said, “Yeah, she’s a total burnout wreck. I’m so glad I didn’t squander my talents like that coochie-flashing wench.” That’s what we would have said. But, then again, we wouldn’t have dated Britney.
