In case you missed it during Timberlake’s guest stint on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, he switched the lyrics to his hit “Suit & Tie,” which appeared to be a witty retort to West’s diss of Timberlake's laid-back comeback record
“My hit’s so sick, got rappers acting dramatic,” Timberlake coolly sang.
Last month during a show in London, West told an audience, “I got love for Hova, but I ain’t ... with that ‘Suit & Tie.’ ”
On the first night of his week-long residency on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, Timberlake put the brakes on any talk of a simmering feud with the rapper.
“Did it seem that way? I don’t remember that … Did I change a line? It is live," Timberlake said with a grin. "You know, really, everyone, keep calm."
"Let me just, for the record, " Timberlake later clarified. "I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that. We love Kanye, right?"
Might be a smart move to squash the beef, considering Timberlake’s summer plans to tour with West’s BFF (and “Suit & Tie” collaborator) Jay-Z. Otherwise, it could stall a rumored sequel to “Watch the Throne” -- or at least make play dates with West’s impending baby and Hov’s precious Blue Ivy all the more awkward.
