Justin Timberlake has cleared the air with Kanye West.

The pair had previously clashed when the 'Clique' hitmaker blasted the star's 'Suit & Tie' collaboration with Jay Z, but they have discussed their differences and seem to be on much better terms.

Speaking to MTV News, Justin said: ''It doesn't matter. It was one of them things where I love it, in a way, because at the end of the day it's just music.

''I love the record, I love 'Suit & Tie.' It reminds me of the music I grew up listening to.

''I respect his opinion because I think he's a genius. But I don't share that opinion. It's just not that big a deal.''

The pair could even move on enough to work on a song together in the future, with Kanye suggesting it was the best way to get over their argument.

Justin added: ''He said the exact perfect thing, which was, 'The best way I know how to do that is just for us to sit down and play music' ... I love 'Ye ... I feel like I understand what he's doing.

''I love 'Yeezus'. I love that album. I feel like I understand what he's doing. I think he's ahead ... of a lot ... all the time.''
