Justin Timberlake apologises to Britney Spears, Janet Jackson: ‘I failed’
Justin's apology came after the release of Britney's high-profile documentary that covers the circumstances that led to her conservatorship in 2008.
Popstar Justin Timberlake has apologised to former girlfriend Britney Spears and singer Janet Jackson, saying that he had failed them in the past.
Justin's apology came after the release of Britney's high-profile documentary that covers the circumstances that led to her conservatorship in 2008. The release of the documentary led to Justin receiving backlash as fans turned furious about his role in Britney's downfall.
Taking to social media, Justin said that he wanted to apologise to Britney and his Super Bowl halftime co-star Janet Jackson "because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed".
Admitting benefiting from white male privilege in the music industry, Justin wrote, “I've seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond,” he began, referencing the backlash from Britney’s fans that have been directed at him and others. “I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right."
Talking further about his past actions, he added, "I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism. I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”
