Click here for Part 1 of Boy Sh-t, featuring Justin Timberlake and Kanye West...over Jay-Z, because they both want to be BFFs for him. In short, Kanye insulted JT’s Suit & Tie in a freestyle, and then JT changed the lyrics to Suit & Tie to answer back...weakly.
JT is on Fallon every night this week as part of his The 20/20 Experience blitz promotion. (Note: David Bowie, whose new album The Next Day is out today, was super spare on interviews, appearances, anything.) Just a few minutes ago, during an afternoon huddle at Duana’s desk, our friend Amy went ape sh-t over how hot he was on the show. He did look good. But for me, when it comes to Justin Timberlake, I am a paramecium...unless grade 8 science has changed since I was there. Has it? This is a serious question.
Anyway, Fallon asked JT about the Kanye fued, and JT’s answer, smugly:
"Did it seem (like I changed the lyrics)? I don't remember that . . . Did I change a line? It is live. You know, really, everyone, keep calm. Let me just, for the record...I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that. We love Kanye, right?"
Oh so that’s your move?
To be faux-gracious and above it? To patronise?
Justin Timberlake is patronising Kanye West.
Justin Timberlake is telling Kanye he’s his junior.
Kanye, Ye, Yeezy, easy son... it was just jokes!
And what can Kanye do?
Well, Kanye West is dating Kanye West’s girlfriend. He’s fighting a battle with a decimated army.
