Justin Timberlake has addressed his recent drama with Kanye West by declaring he "absolutely loves" the rapper.
Justin Timberlake “absolutely loves” Kanye West and insists they aren’t feuding.
The singer has discussed his recent appearance on TV show Saturday Night Live, where he altered the lyrics of his hit Suit & Tie to address his recent drama with rapper Kanye.
During the performance, Justin changed the words from “Aww, sh*t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit,” to “my hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”
This was in response to comments Kanye made about Justin’s collaboration with Jay-Z in February, where he slammed Suit & Tie during a show in London.
“I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f**king with that Suit & Tie,” Kanye ranted to the crowd.
Justin appeared on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show yesterday, where he was grilled about his lyric changing.
“Did it seem that way? Did I change a line in Suit & Tie? I don’t remember that. It was live. You know everyone just keep calm,” Justin explained. “[Keep calm and Kanye on?] Can I just say for the record, I absolutely love Kanye. Right, so there’s that and it was a live show and anything can happen.”
During his interview Justin joked about performing with rap superstar Jay-Z. The chart topping duo made a surprise appearance together for their rendition of Suit & Tie on Saturday Night Live.
Justin and Jay-Z will begin their Legends of the Summer tour in July, which the actor-and-singer is excited about.
“That was fun [performing with Jay-Z], he didn’t let me know he was going to wear all those gold chains, I would of worn mine; I have so many yellow gold chains. I can’t count them!” Justin joked. “I’m doing the stadium tour, yes it’s exciting.”
Justin performed his track Pusher Love Girl from his upcoming record The 20/20 Experience after his interview with Jimmy. The album, which is officially released March 19, is now available to stream online.
