Michelle Williams narrated her first audiobook with Britney Spears’ memoir, The Woman in Me, which was released on Tuesday (October 24th). A clip of The Fabelmans actress reading a section about Justin Timberlake has since gone viral.

Williams imitates the “Cry Me a River” singer per Spears’ recollection. “One day, [Justin] and I were in New York, going to parts of town I’d never been to before. Walking our way was a guy wearing a huge blinged-out medallion. He was flanked by two giant security guards. J got all excited and said so loud, ‘Oh yeah. Fo’ shiz. Fo’ shiz. Ginuwine what’s up homie?’” the Wendy and Lucy actress says.

People on social media can’t get enough of the clip. “Michelle Williams is doing performance art here, you see,” one person wrote on X. Another added, “(white) Michelle Williams doing an impression of Britney doing an impression of Justin Timberlake doing an impression of a Black person – this is art.”
