“Justin Timberlake launched his career by slut-shaming Britney.”
Last night time, the New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears debuted on Hulu and FX — and it is, fairly frankly, sensible.
However, there was one little bit of the doc that some followers paid specific consideration to — and it includes Justin Timberlake.
If you want a fast refresh, Britney and Justin dated for 3 years till 2002. It was, like, an enormous deal.
The documentary then options two huge moments following their cut up: First, the “Cry Me A River” music video, the place the mix of a Britney lookalike and the music’s lyrics (“It wasn’t like you only talked to him,” and so on.) makes it seem to be Britney cheated on Justin IRL.
Secondly, when Justin kept talking about having sex with Britney. When he is requested on the radio, “Did you fuck Britney Spears” he laughs and says, “Okay, I did it.”
The ensuing common narrative was, within the phrases of the documentary, that Justin was portrayed because the “school quarterback” whereas Britney was shunned because the “high school slut” who bared accountability for the breakup.
We’ll maintain you posted if JT himself chooses to touch upon the doc.
