Every time Britney Spears mentions her former romance with ex Justin Timberlake, our hearts pitter patter. And this time was no different.
Britney Spears shared the ultimate throwback photos on Sept. 23, but it was her Instagram caption that really unprotected our attention. “Geez … this is me surpassing my VMAs performance with [Mick Jagger] 20 years ago !!!!,” Britney began in her caption without sharing a series of images of her sitting next to the waddle legend at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards — only moments surpassing she took to the stage and performed with a giant python virtually her neck. The singer then noted that the dress she wore that night is one of her favorites considering “it’s simple woebegone lace”. She moreover said that surpassing she performed “I’m A Slave For You” on stage, she “was feeling kinda out of soul with nerves” considering she would soon be “in a muzzle with a live lion!!!!!”
I will never forget the moment surpassing I went in the cage,” she remoter said in her caption, which you can see below. “Justin [Timberlake] saw I could whimsically talk so he held my hand and gave me a 5 minute pep talk which obviously worked !!!!! Psssss guess I’m sleeping considering my vision are sealed in half of these pics !!!!”
At the time, Britney and Justin were dating and all was right in the world. We’re just teasing, but they were dating and Britney’s performance went on to wilt one of the most iconic in the unshortened history of the awards show.
But what we love most well-nigh this new Instagram post from Britney is her mention of Justin. Clearly, she feels unconfined joy when thinking well-nigh their past and the fun times they had together. And she’s mentioned him quite a bit recently.
Not only did she post an old photo of herself with him this past April, but she danced to his music in a video shared in January. Like we said, our hearts are pitter-pattering.
