Justin Timberlake just threw some major shade at ex-girlfriend Britney Spears

Britney Spears just wrapped up her Vegas residency on New Year’s Eve 2017 but has since reportedly signed a deal to return to The Strip in 2019. Lady Gaga, meanwhile, recently announced she will play a large run of dates in the Nevada city.

Speaking to British presenter Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, Justin was asked if he's ever considered a Vegas residency. "I mean I wouldn't rule it out if it was something that was different. I definitely don't, you know, it feels like…" Justin started.

"Like a retirement option?" Zane interjected before Justin agreed.

"You're planning your retirement. You know what I mean? So for some reason that feels like scary to me."

He continued to say there was one artist who he would try to emulate if he did do a residency. “The person who did Vegas better than anybody was Prince,” he said.

“He was like, ‘I’ll just show up when I show up, and I’ll play 10 shows a year, and it’ll be me because I’m the greatest ever that ever did it.”
