Justin Timberlake Addresses Kanye West Jab On "Saturday Night Live"

Justin Timberlake backs away from a dig he made at Kanye West.

Kanye West ruffled some feathers when he paused a performance to state, "I got love for Hov but I ain't fuckin' with that 'Suit & Tie,'" interpreted as a diss towards Justin Timberlake's smash single "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z.

JT fired back at 'Ye during his performance on "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, swapping out the line "Shit's so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" for "My hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic."

During a weeklong appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," the former boy band member jokingly clarified the dig, playing dumb but expressing love for the G.O.O.D. Music rapper.

"Did it seem that way? I don't remember that. Did I change the line? It is live," he said. "You know, really, everyone, keep calm. Keep calm.

"Let me just say, for the record, I absolutely love Kanye," he added. "So there's that. We love Kanye, right?

Timberlake is currently prepping the release of his third solo album The 20/20 Experience, dropping March 19th. Listen to the album in full here.
