Justin Timberlake talks Kanye West diss on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'
It's one night down and four to go for Justin Timberlake on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The singer kicked off a week-long residency as guest on the show, in which he'll be performing songs and making jokes with host Jimmy Fallon each night.
It didn't take long for the pair to start having fun. After Justin revealed that both men were sick, Jimmy lamented, "We shouldn't have made out." While talking about Timberlake's latest "Saturday Night Live" episode, it was revealed the "D*** in a Box" singers, played by Timberlake and Andy Samberg, are actually named 2:30 a.m.
Timberlake also addressed his alleged diss toward Kanye West during the show. While performing "Suit & Tie," Justin altered the lyrics of the song just a bit, singing, "My hits so sick, got rappers acting dramatic." In February, West went on a ten minute rant during a concert, a portion of which was criticizing the song, which features rapper Jay-Z, saying, "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f***ing with that 'Suit & Tie."
Timberlake feigned innocence about the line change, but asked everyone to simply calm down over the supposed feud. "Let me say, for the record, I absolutely love Kanye," he claims, "Did the lyrics change? I don't remember."
Later in the interview, Timberlake showed off his Fallon impression, before the pair impersonated Milli Vanilla, complete with song and dance. Justin wrapped up the night with a performance of "Pusher Love Girl," one of the tracks from "The 20/20 Experience." The album will be released March 19, but is being streamed for free online.
