Justin Timberlake and Kanye West end semi-feud at VMAs
"I respect his opinion because I think he's a genius but I don't share that opinion. It's just not a big deal to do it at SNL too it's not that big a deal. " Timberlake referred to subliminally addressing West's comments during an appearance on "Saturday Night Live" last March. Instead of singing the original lyrics to the song "(expletive) so sick got a hit and picked up a habit," Timberlake crooned, "My hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic," while on SNL. However, Timberlake insisted that he had no ill feelings toward West when he appeared on the "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" show. <br>Source: http://global.christianpost.com/news/justin-timberlake-says-kanye-west-doesnt-understand-him-103274/

Inside the Kanye West HBO Comedy That Almost Was
The two chart rivals appeared to have fallen out when rapper West took aim at Timberlakes Suit & Tie hit during a London concert in February, revealing he wasnt a fan of the tune the singer recorded with his pal and collaborator Jay Z. He told the crowd, I got love for Hov (Jay Z), but I aint f with that Suit & Tie. Timberlake responded a month later while performing on Saturday Night Live by changing the lyrics to the song and singing, My hits so sick got rappers acting dramatic. (Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images for MTV) But now it seems their brief spat is over following a meeting behind the scenes at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. In a new interview, Timberlake insists he was not upset or annoyed by Wests remarks, stating, At the end of the day its just music. I love the record, I love Suit & Tie. It reminds me of the music I grew up listening to. I respect his opinion because I think hes a genius, but I dont share that opinion. And he told MTV newsman Sway Calloway that he and West had exchanged pleasantries at the VMAs, adding, I told him, I f with you, in a way that you probably dont even understand. <br>Source: http://blog.sfgate.com/dailydish/2013/08/29/justin-timberlake-and-kanye-west-end-semi-feud-at-vmas/
What Happened When Macklemore Met Kanye Backstage At The VMAs?
By Nadeska Alexis (@neweryork) Kanye West spares nothing when it comes to properly sharing his art, but for his Sunday night (August 25) performance at the 2013 Video Music Awards , Mr. West was all about making a big statement while keeping it very minimal for the first live rendition of "Blood on the Leaves." In contrast to his jolting performances of the Yeezus single "Black Skinhead," which came complete with threatening hooded figures and ferocious barking dogs, the controversial rapper, producer and self-proclaimed "Michael Jordan of music" which Jared Leto so graciously pointed out during his introduction turned down both the intensity and the lights for "Blood on the Leaves." The song began with a very dim light illuminating only 'Ye's face, with the rest of the set shrouded in black, as the haunting refrain of the "Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees" came through the speakers in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Not until the beat of the song dropped were viewers finally able to see that Steve McQueen's "Lynching Tree" was the only thing that Kanye had commissioned as his backdrop for the night. The painting depicts a tree outside of New Orleans where slaves were once hung, with their graves littered across the ground under the leaves. "Blood on the Leaves" samples Nina Simone's 1965 jazz cover of Billie Holiday's 1939 recording "Strange Fruit," which was heavy with commentary on racism, slavery and the rise in the number of lynchings in the United States. <br>Source: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1713026/kanye-west-blood-on-the-leaves-vma-2013.jhtml
Kanye West's Blacked-Out 'Blood On The Leaves' Haunts VMAs
Kanye West! What Happened When The Two Came Face-To-Face At The VMAs?!? 8/28/2013 7:46 PM ET | Filed under: Justin Timberlake Music Minute Celebrity Feuds Kanye West VMAS Allow us to catch you up to speed Earlier this year, Kanye West threw some shade in Justin Timberlake 's direction after the release of his single Suit & Tie. Apparently Yeezy did like what he heard, because after listening to JT new tune, Kanye commented: "Man, I got love for Hov, but I ain't f*cking with that Suit & Tie." Justin is thick-skinned but he decided to throw a jab back at Kanye while hosting SNL a few weeks later. During his performance of Suit & Tie, he changed up his lyrics a bit and sang the new line: "My hits so sick/Got rappers acting dramatic." Well at the VMAs on Sunday, Timberlake and West FINALLY came face-to-face backstage! <br>Source: http://perezhilton.com/2013-08-28-justin-timberlake-kanye-west-feud-ended-at-vmas-possible-collaboration-coming
Justin Timberlake VS. Kanye West! What Happened When The Two Came Face-To-Face At The VMAs?!?
Macklemore proves that, despite his breakout year, he's still a stan for Yeezus. By James Montgomery (@positivnegativ) There Kim Kardashian full sex tape video was so much happening at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards both onstage and behind the scenes that sometimes, it takes a few days for the subtler moments to rise to the surface. Hey, it wasn't all twerking Teddy bears . Case in point, this genuinely sweet interaction between multiple-VMA winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and the mercurial Kanye West, which occurred backstage following West's performance of "Blood on the Leaves" . It's just a quick conversation between artists, but it shows that, no matter how big Mack & Lewis have gotten, they're still fans, first and foremost. <br>Source: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1713204/kanye-west-macklemore-vma-2013-backstage.jhtml
