UPDATE: Despite ‘SNL’ dis, Justin Timberlake loves Kanye West

Update: Justin Timberlake appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and addressed the Kanye West controversy … sort of.

Fallon pointed out that that Timberlake changed the lyrics of “Suit & Tie” during his Saturday Night Live performance. Timberlake responded “Did it seem that way? … Did I change a line? It is live. You know, really, everyone, keep calm.”

“Keep calm and Kanye on,” Fallon swiftly responded.

There are no hard feelings on Timberlake’s side as he announced his admiration for the rapper.

“Let me just, for the record … I absolutely love Kanye. So there’s that. We love Kanye, right?” Timberlake asked the audience.

So there’s that indeed, readers. The feud between the two stars seems to be water under the bridge … for now, at least.

 Metro’s original story below:


Everyone wants to be Jay-Z’s best friend. Even mega-stars Kanye West and Justin Timberlake are feuding over who is Mr. Carter’s bestie.

It all started a few weeks ago when Kanye went on a rant about how “he got love for Hov, but he ain’t fucking with that ‘Suit and Tie.’”

We all knew it was a matter of time before Timberlake responded. In true JT fashion, though, he took the classy, high-road approach.

Midway through his performance of “Suit and Tie” on Saturday Night Live, Timberlake changed the line “shit so sick got a hit and picked up a habit” to “my hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”

And then Jay-Z appeared on stage, so it’s safe to assume who won this feud.

For those of you wanting to hear it for yourself, the dis comes at approximately the 2:15 mark of the video.

On the topic of Justin Timberlake, he killed it on SNL. His skits were funny and his performances of “Suit and Tie” and “Mirrors” were the best ones so far.

JT and JayZ for the win, folks.
