Remember 1999? Pre-Y2K, pre-hashtags, pre-reality TV (minus Survivor). Everything seemed simpler, and everyone happier. Except Mandy Moore.
Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the singer/actress recounted possibly the most embarrassing encounter of that year. The 15-year-old was on tour with NSYNC and THE ONE AND ONLY Justin Timberlake told her she had “big feet for a girl.”
“I’m sure he doesn’t remember this at all—but I was so impressionable and I thought like the world of him. He was on a pedestal. And I mean, 16 years later, it stuck with me so. It really scarred me emotionally.”
Listen to Corden’s perfect rebuttal below. (P.S. We still love you, Justin.)
