Justin Timberlake is bringing his sexy back to “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” this whole week as the musical guest, but the host still wasn't about to hold any punches on day one. When Jimmy sat down with the “Suit & Tie” singer Monday night, he put J.T. in the hot seat for the lyrics from his hit song that were switched up during his “Saturday Night Live” performance, allegedly dissing Kanye West.
So what was Justin's response? He told everyone to “Keep calm.” To which Jimmy had to add, “Keep calm and Kanye on.”
The rumors started during “SNL” after Timberlake changed a lyric from his current chart topper, swapping out “so sick got a hit and picked up a habit” to “my hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.” People assumed the switch was a reaction to West's concert rant last month, where he said, “I got love for the Hov, but I ain’t ****** with that Suit and Tie.” “The Hov” refers to Jay-Z and “Suit and Tie” well… we all know there's only one person he could be talking about.
"For the record, I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that," Justin insisted.
Check out this video to hear what else the 32-year-old had to say about his "love" for Kanye West.
