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 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 timeâ€¦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 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.
