Justin Timberlake Maybe Called Britney Spears The ‘B’ Word (Gasp!), Takes To Twitter To Claim Innocene

justin timberlakeYou know shit hasn’t gotten a wee bit out of hand when you can’t call your ex a bitch, without someone throwing a fit. Think about all the things you’ve called your exes — does bitch even come close to the slurs and accusations that have rolled off your tongue? Probably not. Unless you’re a saint, then that’s just weird and you will likely not understand the following.

So the story goes that Justin was performing at a Super Bowl party this past weekend, when he was heard saying something along the lines of (keep in mind that this isn’t an exact quote), “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out, that she is just some bitch!” Then he broke out into song playing “Cry Me A River.” I’m serious. This is the rumor that’s circulating: Justin is at a party, knocks his ex, then everyone freaks out. What a jerk!

So naturally once the rumor was on the move, Justin took to Twitter to clear up any confusion: ”Ok. I see you. Wouldn’t disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love that saying though *with accent* #Respect.”

In all seriousness, if Justin did say the comment, he has every right to express his opinion if he wants. He wasn’t being racist, homophobic or even sexist; if anything, he was being an asshole, which we’re all allowed to be when we’ve been scorned. Why? Because we’re just reacting to the actions of the asshole who scorned us. Also, Justin has dated plenty of women, who’s to say the comment wasn’t about someone else? Maybe Cameron Diaz? Just because the guy breaks out in a particular song after a supposed statement, it doesn’t mean that it was definitely, without a doubt, about Britney Spears. Besides, those two have been broken up for how long now? A decade? Who harbors animosity toward an ex for a decade? You know, besides Taylor Swift and I.

Have we become so sensitive as a society that we’re no longer allowed to say what we want about people who have possibly (although we don’t know the ins and outs of their relationship) have hurt us? Should I take to Twitter every time someone over hears me talking smack about someone (because I’m so famous and everyone so cares?) What about when I say to a friend, “bitch, please?”

People need to lighten up a bit, and I really need to start hanging out at parties where Justin is performing. Especially if he rolled in singing “Give It On Up To Homeless-Ville.
