Megan Thee Stallion responded to rumors of a Justin Timberlake beef at the VMAs

Megan Thee Stallion wants to make it very clear that she has no beef with Justin Timberlake. On Wednesday morning (Sept. 13), the Grammy-winning “Savage” rapper took to TikTok clear up any confusion stemming from a widely misinterpreted video from backstage at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards on Tuesday night (Sept. 12).

In a hilarious move, Megan’s TikTok finds her conversing with Timberlake while using her hands to accent her phrases — but viewers can’t hear anything that the two are saying. Instead, Megan posted the video to the soundtrack of Do As Infinity’s “Fukai Mori,” a 2001 J-pop ballad that served as the second ending theme for a popular anime series titled Inuyasha — a nod to her well-documented love for anime.

In the clip, the rapper appears to say something along the lines of, “I’m not beefing with Justin Timberlake, chill!” before the pop star jumps in and recites her signature “Real hot girl s–t!” ad-lib. On Instagram, where she reposted the TikTok, Megan captioned the post, “I just talk with my hands lol @justintimberlake love ya.”

Fans were quick to rise to Megan’s defense after a backstage clip from Tuesday night’s VMAs ceremony appeared to show her and Timberlake in some kind of verbal altercation. However, a source told Billboard that Megan was simply excited to meet Timberlake, insisting on a proper introduction in a less chaotic environment.

Both artists had memorable VMAs nights outside of this viral moment. Megan, alongside Cardi B, debuted the first live performance of their funky new “Bongos” collaboration, while Timberlake reunited with his *NSYNC bandmates for the first time in 10 years.
