Timberlake takes a dig at Kanye West on SNL

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Justin Timberlake has taken a dig at Kanye West while hosting Saturday Night Live, after the rapper dissed his new track 'Suit & Tie' with Jay-Z.

During his performance of the hit song on the NBC sketch show, Timberlake changed 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", reported E! Online.

While it was a subtle dig, Timberlake seemed to be addressing the comments West made at a London concert in February.

The burgeoning feud may be a bit awkward for Jay-Z. The rapper released a joint album with West, 'Watch the Throne', and is set to embark on a stadium tour together this summer.

Timberlake is earning rave reviews for his fifth outing as Saturday Night Live's host. Seeing as it was his fifth time hosting SNL, he was welcomed into the Five-Timers Club by a parade of comedy legends with whom he shares the honour, including Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks and Chevy Chase.
