Did anyone see this coming?
On Friday, Britney Spears’ 2011 song “Selfish” – off her seventh album “Femme Fatale” from that year – reached No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes chart…
On Saturday, Spears’ song was still holding steady at the No. 2 spot on the chart, two slots ahead of Timberlake at No. 4.
Brit’s memoir “The Woman in Me,” let fans into her high-profile romantic life with Justin Timberlake. In the book it was revealed that JT wasn’t faithful to her and how she has an abortion during their relationship.
The #FreeBritney movement came two years before the memoir when the “New York Times Presents” the unauthorized documentary “Framing Britney Spears.”
The documentary prompted Spears’ devoted fanbase – who became galvanized during the #FreeBritney movement toward the end of her 13-year-long conservatorship – to call for an apology from Timberlake, which he did days after the documentary’s premiere, writing on social media at the time, “I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments and concerns and I want to respond.
“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right,” he continued, later adding, “I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears.”
Clearly, devotees of Spears are still rallying to show support for the “Piece of Me” singer.
While Justin has begun his comeback- he appears that he will have a few crossroads’ to face along the way…
