Justin Timberlake dismisses Kanye feud

Los Angeles - Justin Timberlake insists he absolutely loves Kanye West.

The Suit & Tie singer - who hit back at the rapper for acting "dramatic" after he blasted the pop song on stage in London last month - has brushed off their feud and his decision to change the lyrics of the song to address it on Saturday Night Live.

The 32-year-old star was asked on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday about changing the lyrics from "Aww, shit so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "my hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic", while performing the track live on the comedy sketch show on Saturday.

He 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.

"Let me just, for the record. I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that. We love Kanye, right?"

Kanye - who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Kim Kardashian in early July - hit out at Justin, who collaborated with his Watch the Throne partner Jay-Z on the track, during his intimate gig at London's Hammersmith Apollo last month.

He told the crowd: "I've got love for Hov but I'm not down with that suit and tie shit."

Justin won rave reviews for hosting SNL for the fifth time, which featured cameos from Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd and Martin Short.
