Justin Timberlake Laughs Off Kanye West Feud: "I Absolutely Love Kanye"
Keep calm, and Kanye on! Justin Timberlake visited good friend Jimmy Fallon on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday, March 11 to discuss his hosting gig and performance on Saturday Night Live last weekend. Timberlake, 32, made headlines for reportedly changing a line in his "Suit & Tie" song to address a recent remark Kanye West made against his new hit.
Fallon asks Timberlake, "For Saturday Night Live, it felt like to me you changed one of the lyrics in 'Suit & Tie,'" Fallon, 38, told the singer.
"Did it seem that way?" Timberlake asked with a smirk on his face. "I don't remember that . . . Did I change a line? It is live. You know, really, everyone, keep calm."
"Keep calm, and Kanye on," Fallon joked.
"Let me just, for the record, " Timberlake added. "I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that. We love Kanye, right?"
During his March 9 performance with Jay-Z on SNL, Timberlake seemed to change the lyric "Aww, s--t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "my hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic."
The lyric swap comes after West, 35, targeted Timberlake and Jay-Z's track in a rant during his concert at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Feb. 23. He rapped, "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f--king with that 'Suit & Tie.'"
West and Timberlake share a best friend in Jay-Z. West and Jay-Z released the collaborative album Watch the Throne together in August 2011 and went on tour together. Jay-Z is now set to go on a Legends of the Summer 12-city tour with Timberlake beginning in July.
