Earlier this week, Britney Spears posted an apology to anyone who was hurt by what she wrote in her memoir.  And it was pretty clear that Justin Timberlake was the intended recipient.


Well, he DOESN’T ACCEPT.  Because during a show in New York City on Wednesday . . . which just happened to be Justin’s birthday . . . he sent a very clear message.


He was about to launch into “Cry Me a River”. . . a song that’s supposedly about his breakup with Britney.  And he said, quote, “I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely [effing] nobody.”


(WARNING:  Here’s an UNCENSORED clip.)


Well, Britney caught wind of it, and UN-apologized.


She said, quote, “Someone told me someone was talking [crap] about me on the streets!!!  Do you want to bring it to the court or will you go home crying to your mom like you did last time???  I’m not sorry!!!”


Just two years ago, Justin issued an apology to both Britney and Janet Jackson for his past failures with them.  But that was BEFORE Britney’s book came out.


Sounds like what she wrote about him really stung.


(If I had to choose, I’d say Britney wins this one.  Justin was already facing a come-from-behind battle.  This latest video just feels like another few steps backward.)
