You need a quick background on the beef between Justin Timberlake and Kanye West. Because, actually, I knew nothing about it until five minutes ago. Rachel filled me in. At one of Kanye’s shows, he announced that he didn’t like Jay-Z’s new song with Justin Timberlake. Then on JT’s recent “SNL” appearance, he scratched back, using the lyrics, Hits so sick, got rappers acting dramatic.
When Jimmy Fallon asked JT if he changed the lyrics on purpose to burn Kanye, JT denied like a mofo:
JT: Did I change the lyrics? You know, really, everyone, keep calm.
Jimmy Fallon: Keep calm and Kanye on.
JT: For the record, I absolutely love Kanye, so there’s that. Were the lyrics changed? I don’t remember.
Classic pass-aggro behavior. Deny, deny, deny while admitting. JT’s simmering rage is palpable.
Usually, celebrity men like to get all ego-y and aggressive-aggressive with each other and get into fights like Chris Brown and Drake. But I prefer the celebrity dudes who like to fight like catty seventh grade girls. Click on for a few more of the best pass-aggro dude feuds… [DListed]
