This past weekend Justin Timberlake performed at the DirecTV Big Game concert in New Orleans. He put a great performance, singing his old songs along with some new ones from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, though some of his onstage jokes got taken out of context right before he broke out into his breakup anthem “Cry Me A River.”
Justin told the audience, “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one, but then one day you find out that she is just some b*tch.”
Many got offended and upset over this remark, thinking he was referring to his ex Britney Spears.
He then took to Twitter on Sunday before the Big Game to deny reports he called his ex-girlfriend a “b*tch” during Saturday evening’s concert.
Timberlake tweeted, “Ok. I see you. Wouldn’t disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love that saying though*with accent* #Respect”
Phew! Glad he cleared that up!
Though when the single was released in 2002 it sparked media reports that the song was inspired by his split with Britney, which he finally confirmed in a December 2011 interview with The Huffington Post that this song was written about her.
But good to know he was speaking in ‘general.’
