Justin Timberlake Wants To Do A Britney Spears Collaboration, So Get The Denim Formalwear Ready
For anyone who's been holding out hope that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake are the OTP of pop culture, you're going to love this news. No, they're not getting back together (sadly). But these exes may make music in the hopefully near future, so prepare for your ears to explode with joy. Back in August, Spears admitted she wants to collaborate with JT and said his music is "very good." During the Toronto International Film Festival, E! News asked Timberlake if he would work with Spears. And guess what? The feeling is mutual. The "SexyBack" singer seemed surprised but said,
"She did? Sure! Absolutely, absolutely. I have a 17 month old so I don't get the headline news. I apologize for not being in the know … I'm accessible, give us a call!"
To be fair, Timberlake isn't too behind the times. It was only a few weeks ago that Spears admitted she enjoys JT's music and made fans' dreams come true. And it's kind of adorable that he's blaming being a dad to baby Silas as the reason he missed that breaking news. He must really be taking the whole fatherhood thing seriously. The fact that he's so willing to work with Spears is unexpected yet exciting. This also shows a newfound maturity for them both, since they've had their past incidents of not being the nicest to one another. But now that they're parents and 30-somethings, I'd like to think they've come a long way and can officially let bygones be bygones.
As pointed out by fellow Bustle writer Amy Mackelden, this is an ideal moment in both Spears and Timberlake's careers to make something like this happen. She writes,
[Timberlake's] "Can't Stop The Feeling!" is a feel-good summer anthem, complete with a dance routine and the catchiest chorus of all time. This fits nicely with Spears's new album Glory, which includes pop songs, dance hits, and an altogether positive vibe.
She's right. They're on the same page right now, as far as their sound. This would be the perfect way to tie into all the never-ending '90s nostalgia that fans just can't get enough of. They're both talented and it'd be like reliving their Mickey Mouse Club days all over again.
Now, all anyone can do is patiently wait for this music magic to happen. In the meantime, I hope their stylists are ironing their denim-on-denim formalwear. They're going to need to rock those in their inevitable music video and every future red carpet.
