After a successful stint hosting “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend, Justin Timberlake is making NBC his home for the next week. It’s officially “Justin Timberlake Week” on “Late Night,” with Timberlake on every night. For his first visit, he quickly addressed his so-called beef with Kanye West.
The two stars commented back and forth during live performances, starting with Kanye West slamming JT’s collaboration with Jay-Z — “Suit & Tie” — during a concert last month.
TImberlake seemingly responded with a strategic lyric change during his “SNL” performance of the song. He changed the line “so sick got a hit and picked up a habit” to “my hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”
“I don’t remember that,” Timberlake said with a smile. “For the record, I absolutely love Kanye. So, there’s that.” So it’s all in good fun — at least from Timberlake’s camp. West has yet to respond. As Vulture put it, “Your move, Kanye.”
Justin Timberlake’s new album, “The 20.20 Experience,” drops next Tuesday, but fans can hear it streaming in its entirety now over at iTunes.
Catch Justin Timberlake all week on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” at 12:37 a.m. EST on NBC.
