Talk about nostalgia. Justin Timberlake is actually showing Britney Spears some love on Instagram, responding to the “Toxic” singer’s sultry dance to his 2018 hit, “Filthy.” No, this is not a drill. Spears shocked fans when she posted two videos showing her wearing barely any clothes and twirling around to her “genius” ex-boyfriend’s music on Wednesday afternoon. Sporting nothing but a tiny crop top to showcase her abs and even smaller shorts, the pop princess shook her hips and took us back to the early 2000s when the duo was Hollywood’s “it” couple. Fans couldn’t wait to see if Timberlake would respond and he didn’t disappoint.
Spears took fans all the way back to her “I’m a Slave 4 U” days, hitting every dance move while flashing her unbelievably flat abs. Britney’s Army couldn’t get enough and thank God she heard our calls. Posting not one, but two separate videos dancing to her ex’s vocals, the singer praised her former boyfriend and even addressed their breakup. The duo, who met as children while starring in the “Mickey Mouse Club” together,” began dating in 1998. They lasted four years before splitting in 2002.
Spears was all smiles in the videos and gave fans a glimpse of her body from every angle. “This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you’re supposed to do these days ????!!!!! As you can see I’m not really dancing folks …… I’m just very bored ?,” she joked. Turning her focus to her song choice, the singer explained, “I know we had one of the world’s biggest breakups 20 years ago …… but hey the man is a genius!!!! Great song JT ✨ !!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT’S GOOD ? !!!!!” Of course, fans went completely postal.
Spears’ sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, was quick to comment and joked that “blogs are already plotting their outrageous stories.” But what really caught attention was when Timberlake caught wind of the video. Responding to Spears’ sultry moves, the “Suit & Tie” singer left a tears of joy emoji, as well as several praising hand ones. Interestingly enough, the duo split in 2002 and rumors pointed to infidelity on Britney’s part. Fast forward to 18 years later and that’s a subject now-married Timberlake knows all to well. As The Blast reported, the singer sparked cheating rumors after he was photographed getting way too close to his “Palmer” co-star Alisha Wainwright during a drunken night. After issuing a public apology for the incident, he’s worked hard with his wife Jessica Biel to keep their marriage intact.
