In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Justin Timberlake opened up about his ex-girlfriend, Britney Spears! They both have come a long way since their Disney days, haven’t they? Both are huge, successful singers…but it all started at the house of mouse!
Justin said, “I wish her the best – that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in nine or ten 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.”
He continued, “It was exciting that we were having so much success and we could do whatever we wanted. And I mean that about everybody: Backstreet Boys, ‘NSync, Britney, Christina. At that time, we could literally go, ‘Oh, man, let’s go to Bali’, and we’d be on a plane to Bali. We were little kids with big toys. You do the math – that’s not going to last.”
He went on to add, “Ryan [Gosling] and I used to steal golf carts and go driving in the middle of the park to get milk shakes, and we never got in trouble for it. We though we were big sh*t.”
