Justin Timberlake Addresses Song Title Controversy

Justin Timberlake wants to call a truce with the anti-rape group that's accusing him of profiting off their name by "borrowing" it for his new song, "Take Back the Night."

The executive director of a decades-old organization founded to battle sexual assault accused Justin of stealing its name for a song that's a little too hot for the liking of some of its members, but Justin insists the whole thing was an accident.

He issued a statement to Radar Online saying, "I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization. As I’ve learned more about The Take Back the Night Foundation, I’m moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women -- Something we all should rally around. It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause."
