That’s right, Justin Timberlake, put your hands together and pray to the heavens above that St. Starbucks will bless you with the chance to work with an angel like Britney Spears. And also if you have the time, ask St. Starbucks to send you a sacred Frapp in the event she needs a little convincing.
A few weeks ago, Britney admitted during an interview with Most Requested Live With Romeo that she would like to work with Steven Tyler, Katy Perry, and Justin Timberlake, who she called “very good.” The only name in that list that anyone cared about was Justin Timberlake, because who wouldn’t want to take a trip back to 2001? Let me just grab my magenta Motorola RAZR, a 12-pack of stick-in hair gems, and my nicest hanky-hem halter dress real quick and we’ll be off.
Maybe hanging out with the rest of NSYNC again gave Justin a nostalgia for some of his other friends from the MTV days, because he admitted yesterday that he would totally collaborate with Britney. E! News asked Justin about the possibility of working with his ex at the TIFF premiere of his Netflix documentary, Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids. Justin was surprised to learn that Britney had said she wanted to work with him, but he doesn’t hate the idea.
“Sure! Absolutely! Absolutely. I’m accessible, give us a call.”
The last song Justin released was about as exciting as a bowl of tepid Top Ramen water. But I fully believe a collaboration with Britney Jean Spears would be beyond great. Look, it’s undeniable that when Justin and Britney come together, magic happens.
That’s not even one of their best ensembles either. But it’s still lighting my eyes on fire with red-hot chemistry. You can’t put that much charisma in a room and not end up with a giant pile of gold. Britney’s floppy butt hat alone is worth the price of admission. Unfortunately, whatever perfect music they record might only be appreciated by dogs. I don’t know if humans would be able to listen to a song that combines Britney’s high-pitched robot voice mixing with Justin’s high-pitched teen boy shrieks.
Here’s more of Justin mugging for the cameras like an aspiring child actor with Jonathan Demme at the premiere of his documentary.
