Justin Timberlake Responds to Kanye West's VMAs Call-Out
Justin Timberlake got an unexpected shout-out during Sunday night's VMAs -- and wasted no time in responding.
Kanye West mentioned the singer during his lengthy Video Vanguard acceptance speech, insisting that he saw Timberlake cry when he didn't win the album of the year Grammy for FutureSex/Lovesounds: "I just, I sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee Lo lose," West said. "Gnarls Barkley and the 'Sexyback' album... Justin, I ain't trying to put you on blast but I saw that man in tears bro. And I was thinking like, he deserved to win album of the year. And the small box that we are as entertainers of the evening, how could you explain that?"
Timberlake wasn't ready to take that kind of commentary lying down, quickly responding to Ye's claims on Twitter:
