Justin Timberlake is considered 'on the nose' in 2024.
It's reached a head this week, following his behaviour towards his ex Britney Spears.
Back in 2021, the singer felt urged to release a very sanitised public apology regarding his treatment of Spears, amid the release of the damning Framing Britney Spears documentary.
"The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It's designed this way. As a man in a privileged position, I have to be vocal about this," he wrote in a statement. "Because of my ignorance, I didn't recognise it for all that it was while it was happening."
Then when Spears' memoir was released late last year, she didn't hold back on Timberlake, calling him out for cheating on her throughout their relationship and pressuring her into having an abortion.

This brings us to the present day. Timberlake is releasing a new album and preparing to embark on a world tour. As one of his first public appearances since the release of the telling memoir, Timberlake appeared to take back his apology to Spears.
