It’s been 14 years since they split, but Britney Spears may be taking aim at her ex, Justin Timberlake, in her new song, ‘Make Me (Oooh)’. In fact, she might even be sampling JT’s ‘Cry Me A River,’ a song which is rumored to be about her unfaithfulness. Get all the details here!
This is pretty much the best news ever! Not only is Britney Spears releasing a new single in the near future, but rumor has it that the song will pay homage to her past relationship with Justin Timberlake. We haven’t heard it yet, but we already know “Make Me (Oooh)” is going to make us say (oooh) my God!
Popjustice founder Peter Robinson recently asked Britney’s publicist when the new single would be out, and then he asked, “Has it still got the ‘Cry Me A River’ sample in it?” What?! Sadly, Britney’s publicist ignored the tweet, but according to Oh No They Didn’t!, Popjustice is pretty reliable.
Plus, get this — Britney has already filmed the music video for “Make Me (Oooh),” during which she demolishes a suburban house, and while filming, she was seen wearing an all-denim outfit. Remember when Britney and Justin wore those matching denim ensembles at the 2001 American Music Awards (see the pic above). That could be another nod to her relationship with Mr. Timberlake!
David LaChapelle directed the video, according to ONTD!, and “it’s rumored that the whole story of it will be about Britney seeking revenge on an ex,” the site notes. Obviously, nothing is confirmed right now, but all signs seem to point towards the fact that this song will definitely be about Justin!

We can’t wait to hear the new song and watch the video upon its release!
UPDATE: When HollywoodLife.com reached out for comment, Britney’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph told us, “Although this and all of the other rumors I’ve read surrounding the release of Britney’s new single ‘Make Me’ are very entertaining, so far none of them have been true.”
