Two things viewers learned on The Oprah Winfrey Show Wednesday:
1. Jessica Biel smells lovely and
2. Justin Timberlake has no idea what is going on with his first love Britney Spears.
The “SexyBack” singer told Winfrey that he is dating someone (he has been spotted with Jessica Biel on and off since January of this year) and while he wouldn’t name names, he did admit, “But all I can tell you is she smells lovely.”
When pressed a little more, he confessed that he sings to his new girlfriend and when they’re far apart, he relies on modern technology (an iChat webcam for example) to get him through.
“I get pretty romantic around her. Technology is a wonderful thing sometimes. I find that to be really cool, when you can actually see someone’s face. I do it with my friends, as well, just to have a conversation back and forth. It just makes you feel closer, that’s all.”
Winfrey also inquired about his past love, former Mousketeer Britney Spears.
“What do you think is going on with Britney?” she asked.
“I don’t know, to be honest with you,” he said. “I haven’t spoken to her in years. I mean, there’s no ill will – I have nothing but love for her. It’s funny because we dated each other at a time … wow, I haven’t talked about this in a long time. It’s interesting. We were teenagers, you know?”
“I think that’s basically the best way to describe what happened to us. I think she’s a great person, and I don’t know her as well as I did,” he said. “What I do know about her is she has a huge heart, and she is a great person.”
