The lyrics to the track reflect Justin’s feelings on the alleged infidelity:

“You don’t have to say, what you did
I already know, I found out from him
Now there’s just no chance
With you and me
There’ll never be
Don’t it make you sad about it?”

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Britney alleged that Justin called her and “slipped in” that the music video would feature her look-alike, but that it wasn’t a “big deal.”

“I hadn’t seen it. Then, it came out, and I said, ‘I should’ve freakin’ said no to this s**t!’ I was so like, ‘Whoa. What is going on right now?’” she recalled.
