In the early 2000s, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears were a high-profile couple that remained a constant topic of conversation even after their separation. The dynamics took a complicated turn when Timberlake released Cry Me a River, a song with lyrics and a music video storyline strongly hinting at being directed towards Spears and their broken relationship. Britney Spears’ fans also tried to ruin Timberlake’s career again recently and it appears it didn’t quite work out the way they had planned.

Justin Timberlake unveiled a new song and video titled Selfish, offering a glimpse into his upcoming album, Everything I Thought It Was, scheduled for release on March 15, marking his return after five years.


Interestingly, Britney Spears fans started rallying against Timberlake by pushing her 2011 song Selfish to No. 1 on the iTunes charts, surpassing his just-released single. A day later, Spears’ Selfish surpassed Timberlake’s new track in iTunes rankings.

To expand on this, fans of Britney Spears coordinated efforts to undermine the success of the new release by Justin Timberlake simply out of spite. According to Ok! Magazine, they actively downloaded and streamed the singer’s lesser-known 2011 track Selfish, which led to it unexpectedly reaching No. 1 on US iTunes. At the same time, the Friends with Benefits star’s release was pushed down to No. 3 due to these combined efforts by the Toxic singer’s fans. 

Timberlake got a ton of attention a few months ago when Britney Spears released her memoir, The Woman in Me. In the book, Spears revisits her relationship with Timberlake, revealing details that weren’t entirely positive.


Fans of Spears harbor resentment towards Timberlake, especially because he depicted himself as the victim in their breakup with the 2002 single Cry Me a River. The accompanying music video, which featured a Spears lookalike, portrayed her in a negative light. Therefore, it wasn’t really a big surprise they tried to sabotage Justin Timberlake’s career as revenge.

It was already noted about that Britney Spears’ fans tried to sabotage Justin Timberlake’s career out of pure spite and revenge. However, according to GeoTV, despite facing concerted efforts against him, sources reveal that the actor is not giving up. They emphasize, “He’s very happy to be performing again and working on new music. He’s all about having a good time right now.”

The insiders emphasize that he’s feeling reinvigorated, doing what he loves, and creating the music he is passionate about, expressing, “He’s never felt better.” It is clear as day that Justin Timberlake couldn’t care less about Britney Spears’ fans and many find this to be a very admirable trait now.
