Justin Timberlake wants everyone to know that he did not diss Kanye West on "Saturday Night Live."
J.T. came under scrutiny Saturday night during a live performance with Jay-Z when he changed the lyrics of Kanye's hit single, "Suit & Tie." Instead of "Aww, sh-t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit," Justin sang "my hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic."
However, in an interview with Jimmy Fallon, J.T. insisted that he is not feuding with Kanye. During the interview, Jimmy asked, "For Saturday Night Live, it felt like to me you changed one of the lyrics in 'Suit & Tie.'"
Justin responded, "Did it seem that way? I don't remember that . . . Did I change a line? It is live. You know, really, everyone, keep calm."
He added, "Let me just, for the record, I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that. We love Kanye, right?"
While Justin may not have a beef with Kanye, other famous figures have taken their digs at the rapper. Here's a look at a few other celebs who have dissed Kanye in the past.
There's no love lost in the ongoing feud between Kim Kardashian's ex-husband, Kris, and current boyfriend, Kanye.
In spring 2012, in Kanye's song "Way Too Cold," he dissed Kris with the lyrics, "And I'll admit, I fell in love with Kim/Around the same time, she fell in love with him/Well, that's cool, baby girl do your thing/Lucky I didn't have Jay drop him from the team."
The lyrics were a reference to the fact that Jay Z was a minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets, and that he could drop Kris from the team at anytime.
When that didn't happen, Kris tweeted his retaliation on Kanye. "I'm up at Brooklyn!" Humphries tweeted Tuesday. "@S_C_ "lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team" lol!"
In summer 2012, 50 Cent dissed Kanye by implying that his girlfriend, Kim, was trash. When asked about Kanye's song, "Perfect B.," (written about Kim) 50 Cent commented, "I mean … if that man feel like she's perfect, then she's perfect. He could mean it and you'll end up singing the words to it because he's Kanye. You know how it is? One man's trash is another man's treasure."
For several years, it has not been a love fest between the rapper and the president. Back in 2009, he called Kanye a "jackass" for interrupting Taylor Swift's moment at the VMAs.
As recently as spring 2012, it appears that Obama's opinion of Kanye still hasn't changed. When asked if he preferred Jay-Z or Kanye, Obama answered Jay-Z.
And the feeling is mutual. Last month, in a mid-concert rant, Kanye said, "I don't give a f*** what the president's got to say."
Trey Parker & Matt Stone
"South Park" creators Parker and Stone gave us some great laughs when they portrayed Kanye as a humorless, self-aggrandizing blowhard. In the episode, "Fishsticks," Kanye's inability to take a joke causes him to find his true calling, and he decides to live out the rest of his life as a gay fish.
