Justin Timberlake alters Suit & Tie lyrics to take aim at Kanye West

Justin Timberlake appeared to take a sly shot at Kanye West over the rapper's criticism of his new song Suit & Tie at the weekend (09Mar13) by changing the lyrics to the track during a performance on Saturday Night Live.

The pop superstar teamed up with West's best pal and Watch The Throne collaborator Jay-Z for his musical comeback, but the Stronger hitmaker was not impressed with the tune, recently telling fans at a concert in London, "I got love for Hov (Jay-Z), but I ain't f**king with that Suit & Tie."

Neither Timberlake nor Jay-Z have officially commented about West's negative feedback, but the singer decided to use his set on Saturday Night Live to hit back, altering the words of his song from "Aww, s**t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "My hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic".
