As we reported on Sunday, the Yeezus artist was awarded the Video Vanguard Award where he gave an EXTREMELY long speech which included a seemingly random name drop of JT.
But how does the former *NSYNC member come into play?!
In 2007, the boybander — along with Gnarls Barkley — were nominated for Album Of The Year at the Grammys but both lost to the Dixie Chicks.
Mr. West said that Jessica Biel‘s husband “had tears in his eyes” after losing.
Mr. Timberlake went on Twitter that very night and reacted to his unexpected mention.
Kanye is so cute, y’all.
— Justin Timberlake (@jtimberlake) August 31, 2015
After receiving backlash from his fans, the 34-year-old clarified that was simply joshing!
Wait… so is Justin cool with Kanye or not?!
Well it turns out, he didn’t watch the FULL speech.
After he did, the crooner shared:
Turns out he is #TeamKanye after all.
Hear that Yeezy?! You MIGHT have Justin’s vote for president!
