Michelle Williams, the Oscar-nominated actress, has taken the internet by storm with her uproarious narration of Britney Spears’ memoir, The Woman in Me. This unexpected twist in literary entertainment has left readers in stitches and garnered widespread attention online.
In the audiobook, Williams delivered a side-splitting impersonation of Justin Timberlake, recounting a memorable encounter between Spears and Timberlake during their heyday. Spears described how Timberlake enthusiastically greeted R&B artiste Ginuwine with a flamboyant “fo’ shiz” exclamation, drawing peals of laughter from listeners.
Clips of Williams’ narration quickly went viral, circulating on social media platforms, with fans and critics alike praising her comedic talent. Some noted that Williams’ Timberlake impression was so uncanny that it momentarily made them forget it wasn’t Spears herself narrating.
Internet users couldn’t get enough of Williams’ interpretation, and her imitation of Mariah Carey’s voice, as described by Spears in the book, also earned acclaim for its accuracy.
The unexpected virality of Williams’ narration led to some confusion, with many discovering that she is not the same Michelle Williams who was a member of Destiny’s Child. Despite calls for an Oscar nomination for her performance, it’s important to note that audiobook narration is not an eligible category for the prestigious award.
