Justin Timberlake Says He Loves Kanye West despite Dissing Him on SNL
West spoke disparagingly about the hit song and said: "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f***ing with that Suit and Tie."
The comment warranted a response from Timberlake and he chose to hit back lyrically during his appearance on Saturday Night Live. While he didn't explicitly name West during his counter jibe, it was pretty clear that it was aimed at the "Can't Tell Me Nothin'" hitmaker.
Instead of singing the usual line "s**t so sick got a hit and picked up a habit," he sang: "my hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic."
When the issue of his clever tweaking of lyrics was brought up on NBC's Late Night show, he refused to acknowledge it and simply said: "I don't remember that." He then added: "for the record, I absolutely love Kanye. So, there's that."
The former "'N Sync" member's outspoken adversary has yet to comment on the situation.
