Justin Timberlake’s Surprise Performance and Britney Spears’ Memoir: A Look Back at ‘Cry Me a River’


Justin Timberlake surprised the audience with a concert at the opening event for Fontainebleau in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (Dec. 13). This was his second performance since Britney Spears’ tell-all memoir was released in October.

Rolling Stone shared a video where Timberlake seemed to reference Spears before singing “Cry Me a River,” a song she noted was used as “ammunition” in its music video. Timberlake said to the crowd, “No disrespect,” before performing the song.

“Cry Me a River,” inspired by Timberlake’s breakup from Spears, was the second single from his debut solo album, Justified. The song reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. The music video shows Timberlake breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and features a Britney look-alike, complete with her signature newsboy hat and matching tattoo.

In her memoir, The Woman In Me, Spears shared several bombshells about their relationship, which lasted from 1999 to 2002. She wrote, “I felt like I had been exploited set up in front of the whole world.” Spears also revealed that she had an abortion during their relationship, saying, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it, and yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.” She described it as “one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”
