GQ: Do you think the press had an influence or effect on your relationship with Britney?
JT: Nope. No.
GQ: If you were to chronicle your life story is there a role for Britney in it?
JT: Britney? Sure, there's a role for a lot of women. That's a tough question. That seems like so long ago. I knew her when I was 12. Like I said, man, I come into every relationship, whether it's a friendship or a girlfriend, as an individual and I bring what I have to offer. And that's it. Childhood love I guess is what she is. I didn't go to high school so it's the closest thing I had to that sweet sixteen kind of love.
