Britney Spears could actually collaborate with Justin Timberlake, according to E! Online. What has been (up until now) considered to be a joke or a crazy rumor now turns out to be more real than the pop world had thought.

Those who grew up in the ’90s and early 2000s have probably heard about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. But only recently, the “Toxic” singer hinted she would like to collaborate with Timberlake, and the world went crazy about it.
But just when fans thought “that’s never going to happen,” Timberlake was asked by an E! Online reporter at the premiere of his Netflix concert documentary film Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids in Toronto to share his thoughts about the possibility to record music with Britney Spears.
And Timberlake was shocked, to say the least. But he’s totally into it, and he said he would “absolutely” like to collaborate with Britney Spears. The “Sexy Back” singer explained his shock by saying he hadn’t heard the news because he has a 17-month-old child, so he doesn’t read much news.
“I apologize for not being in the know… I’m accessible, give us a call!”
Last month, Britney Spears revealed her dream collaborators at a fan Q&A for Most Requested Live with Romeo. And aside from naming Timberlake, the “Toxic” singer also mentioned Aerosmith and Gwen Stefani.

But it was the mention of Timberlake’s name that truly drove the entire pop world crazy. And one of the fans of the potential collaboration between the “Cry Me a River” singer and Britney Spears is ‘N Sync member Lance Bass, who said in his interview with E! Online that it’s like “everyone’s childhood dream.”
“I would love to see that happen, of course. I think everyone in the world wants to see them together again in any capacity. It’s like everyone’s childhood dream.”
He said that in his opinion in will be “an incredible collaboration,” and added his idea to make it a dance number similar to that of a Michael-Janet Jackson song. While Timberlake is busy with his upcoming Netflix show, the pop world hopes he’ll find time to make this collaboration with Britney Spears happen.

Britney Spears, meanwhile, has recently made her highly-anticipated comeback to music by releasing her ninth studio album called Glory, according to the Daily Mail. But the pop diva appears to be not too happy about her pop stardom.
In her interview with NME magazine, Britney Spears shared her doubts about her pop fame, adding that she sometimes wonders if she should pursue a teaching career. Spears has built a long and very successful musical career and over the past two decades has consistently been in the spotlight.
But it appears to be not enough for Britney Spears to believe she was cut out to sing. When she was asked about the secret to her success and how she has managed to retain the longevity of her musical career, the “Toxic” singer said she tries “not to analyze it too much.”
“I love what I do, and I think that helps because it speaks for itself when I perform.”

Britney Spears also admitted that looking at other successful artists inspires her to continue shining brightly in the pop world.
“Because sometimes I’m like, ‘What am I doing?’ Like, I could be a teacher. But then I see other people doing it too, and I’m like, ‘Well, you know, it’s probably all they’ve known for so long, so it just kind of makes sense.'”
Britney Spears has enjoyed worldwide success ever since she entered the music industry in 1998. And then in the 2000s she was named the best-selling female artist multiple times.
