Justin Timberlake on "Cry Me A River": 'It was written in a moment of pain'

Superstar Justin Timberlake has revealed that splitting from pop sensation Britney Spears inspired him to record one of his mot well-known tracks. 

During an interview with Vogue Italia, he was asked if "there's any truth to the myth that in order to create, an artist must be depressed and a bit tormented" and confessed that he wrote one of his biggest singles following his split from Britney Spears:

"It depends. In the past, suffering helped me write. 'Cry Me a River' was written in a moment of pain, and the whole world knew."
