In an excerpt from his new book, Justin Timberlake revealed some important new details about his classic Britney Spears hymn, "Cry Me A River."
Yes, you read it right. Justin Timberlake, 37, revealed that he wrote his classic crush, "Cry Me A River", only two hours after he left him with his ex, Britney Spears, 36. For a long time it has been rumored that the former member of N'Sync created the track in response to his breakup, but thanks to Justin's new book, we have a concrete confirmation. "They have despised me, they have pissed me off, the feelings I had were so strong that I had to write it down," he writes about the ballad of rupture in Retrospective: and all the things that I can not see in front of me. "I translated my feelings into a way that people could listen to and, hopefully, relate to them. People listened to me and understood it because we have all been there, "he also said on the track.
Iconic success was launched in 2002, just after the pair split. Britney and Justin dated from 1998 to 2002 after meeting on the set of The Mickey Mouse Club, But things got complicated after rumors that the Princess of Pop had cheated JT. While Justin does not mention Brit by name in the book, it was the only widely publicized break around the singer at the time, so it's safe to say that she gave Justin some information there.
However, Justin's new book, which was published on October 30, talks more about his music: he delves into the details of his marriage with Jessica Biel, 36, too. In the text, remember the first time you met your now wife. "When I met Jess, it was undeniable how beautiful it is," Timberlake gushed out in his book. "We were at a surprise party in Hollywood in a quiet bar, in a private club, and we were standing in a group of people." Although he said that he did not ask for Jessica's number the first night, because he had to "mentalize" himself, clearly, he added value over time!
