The pop star shared a video on Instagram of herself practicing some back handsprings while Justin’s song “Love Stoned” was playing in the background. She wrote, “Nothing like flips and Mother Nature!!!”
Britney and Justin dated from 1999 to 2002, but fans couldn’t help but notice the song playing in the background and got VERY excited. One user wrote, “OMG Justin Timberlake Song.” Another wrote, “Lol at the Justin Timberlake music.” A third echoed, “Break Up Level: Boss. Brit is #notbothered.”
Britney is known to post workout videos of herself while she listens to Selena Gomez or Janet Jackson, but this time around she went for a JT song. This isn’t a typical top 40 JT song either — this song is about a woman who’s “freaky and she knows it,” and “looks like a model except she’s got a little more ass.” This song was written four years post-Britney, but who’s to say he wasn’t still thinking of his infamous ex?
Let’s not forget that the “Piece of Me” singer, 37, said that Justin would be her dream collaborator back in 2016 during a fan Q&A on Most Requested Live with Romeo. Justin responded to Britney’s request, telling E! News that he would “absolutely” work with her. He added, “I’m accessible, give us a call!”
In a 2011 interview with Vanity Fair, Justin addressed their relationship, saying: “I wish her the best—that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years…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.”
Is Britney sending Justin a message? We can only hope!
