Justin Timberlake responds to the derogative comments made by Kanye West regarding new single 'Suit and Tie' during last night's (11 March) Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Justin Timberlake continued the promotional push for his musical comeback last night with an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, during which he discussed the derogatory comments made by everybody's favourite hater, Kanye West, in reference to his comeback single 'Suit & Tie.' Although JT made a passing reference to the off-hand comments by Kanye during his 5th successful hosting spot on Saturday Night Live this weekend, replacing the original line 'S--t so sick got a hit and picked up a habit,' with 'My hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic,' this was the first time Justin has directly addressed Kanye's latest beef.

Fallon brought up the subtle change of lyrics during the interview, to which Timberlake jokingly played dumb to the interrogation, responding with: 'I don't remember that... Did I change a line? It is live. You know, really, everyone, keep calm.' If we've learnt anything over the years about Yeezy, perhaps best demonstrated by his 'appearance' on South Park, it's that he can take a joke, with Fallon continuing the jesting. Just to clear things up though, Justin reassure Kanye that despite what the rapper thinks, he is still a fan of Kanye's work, telling the audience, 'Let me just say, for the record... I absolutely love Kanye.'

As well as discussing his comeback and the unwanted fall-out from Kanye that the rapper made public during a London concert last month, Justin was also on hand to perform his latest song, 'Pusher Love Girl.' Justin's new album, The 20/20 Experience, will be released March 19, although Justin has since treated his fans to a speak peak at the album before it's official release by making it available to stream on iTunes.
