Timbaland Wants to Save the World. And Britney Spears.

by at . Comments

Britney Spears may have her share of critics, and the depressed, fallen pop star certainly has addictions and other personal issues to address.

But she's still got people in her corner. Estranged husband Kevin Federline has been trying to get her help for weeks, and has stood by her in rehab.

Now, we can count producer Timbaland and his BFF, Brit's former boyfriend Justin Timberlake, among those who want to help the bald and beleaguered star resurrect her career.

Timbaland (right) has approached Timberlake about working with Spears on a comeback project, and her ex has agreed to lend a hand.

The rapper and producer - real name Timothy Mosley - tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I feel her pain, it really bothers me.

"I'm the type of person who tries to save the world," he said. "I just want to take her away, go overseas, and work (it) out."

Save the world? Isn't that a little extreme? Wanting to help the mother of Jayden James is nice and all, but it doesn't exactly make you Bono, Timbaland. Come on.

In any case, Timbaland says he invited Timberlake, whom he calls his "best friend," to work with him to help Spears.

"I asked Justin," Timbaland recalls. "'How would you feel about me working with Britney?' I had to ask him that. I said, 'Would you do it with me?'"

JT, who has been publicly supportive of his ex, agreed on one condition:

"She's just gotta be serious."

No stipulations about a dick in a box, fortunately.

Spears, has clearly lost her mind over the past few months, is seeking treatment at a drug and rehabilitation center in California after two prior failed efforts to get clean.

"I just want to hold her hand," Timbaland said. "I want her to be in my camp, to be around Justin. I need Justin to talk to her. Help her, please!"
