Did Justin Timberlake Take A Shot At Kanye West During SNL Performance?
Justin Timberlake served as host and musical guest on last night’s episode of SNL, but what stood out about his performance of “Suit & Tie” occurred midway through when he took what many perceive as a shot at Kanye West. Although most people watching SNL missed it, around the 2:19 mark of his performance, JT changed the lyrics from “Aww, s**t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit” to “my hit’s so sick got RAPPERS acting dramatic.”
The blue-eyed soul singer’s decision to tweak the lyrics was most likely a response to ‘Ye, who last month went on a rant during his show in London during which he said to the crowd “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f–king with that ‘Suit & Tie.’”
