As you will know, Britney Spears likes to play dress-up on Instagram.

In a new video, he put on a pageboy cap and noticed something …

Britney, who dated Justin from 1999 to 2002, is clearly having the last laugh regarding the video for Justin’s 2002 song “Cry Me a River,” which featured a Britney-like (wearing a page hat) cheating on him. .

After the video came out 20 (!) Years ago, Britney became an unfair villain in the court of public opinion. Justin later apologized to his ex after the documentary. Framing Britney Spears aired, as the documentary effectively described how “Cry Me A River” launched Justin’s successful solo career at Britney’s expense.

“The industry is flawed,” Justin wrote. “It makes men, especially white men, set for success. As a man in a privileged position, I have to express my opinion on this. Due to my ignorance, I did not recognize it for everything that was happening in my own life. life, but I never want to benefit from others being taken down again. “

In 2011, Britney opened up to Rolling Stone on how the video hurt her at the time, saying: “[Justin] He called me and behind it was, ‘And by the way, you’re in a video that’s coming out. Do not worry about that. It is not a big thing.’ So the record label called and said, ‘If you want to change this, you can. I had the power to say no to the video. But I didn’t, because I thought, ‘Hey, it’s your video.’ I had not seen it “.

“Then he came out, and I said, ‘I should have said no to this shit!’ I was like, ‘Woah. What’s going on now?’ Personally, I think it seems like such a desperate attempt. “

These days Brit and Justin seem to be on good terms. She casually quoted him on IG, in August, writing: “As JT would say … haters will say it’s fake !!!!!”

Still, I’m always here for a nice subtle puff (ney).
