Justin Timberlake recently apologized, claiming he was benefiting from a system that favored men, especially white men, to succeed. He particularly addressed his past behavior toward Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Timberlake, 40, wrote, "I've seen the messages, tags, comments and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn or did not speak up for what was right."



"I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism," he added. "I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed."

"I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from … " Timberlake continued.



Timberlake's post comes after the New York Times documentary "Framing Britney Spears" was released, which featured, in part, a discussion of his relationship with the "Toxic" singer.

It included Timberlake's hit song and music video, "Cry Me a River," which referenced a breakup with a lookalike actress and had an apparent message blaming Spears and promoting a revenge fantasy on his part.
