Justin Timberlake’s ready to talk about his apparent feud with Kanye West – and it turns out, there may never have been one at all.
Though the singer changed some lyrics in his “Suit & Tie” performance during Saturday Night Live on March 9 to “my hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic” – an apparent dig at Kanye, who recently dissed the track – JT put it all to rest while on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

When Jimmy pointed out the change in lyrics during the March 11 episode, Justin said, “Did it seem that way? I don’t remember that. Did I change a line? It is live. You know really everyone keep calm.”
Jimmy added, “keep calm and Kanye on,” to which the 32-year-old entertainer said, “For the record, I absolutely love Kanye. We love Kanye, right?”

In February, the 35-year-old rapper, who’s expecting a child with Kim Kardashian, was performing in London when he went on a rant about Justin’s hit featuring Jay-Z.
“I got love for Hov [Jay-Z’s nickname], but I ain’t [messing] with that ‘Suit & Tie’,” he said to the crowd.
Kanye and Justin have always been competitive. In 2007, the hip-hop artist even admitted the following.
“My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake,” he said. “We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day.”
