“We got to go bring sexy back."
Just one week after Megan Thee Stallion and Justin Timberlake's viral backstage VMAs interaction, the two performers are making headlines again. And this time, Meg is teasing fans with a potential collab.
In case you weren't on the internet last week, the rapper and *NSYNC alum ran into each other at the 2023 MTV VMAs (after Justin reunited with his bandmates for an epic moment of nostalgia). Social media initially thought Meg had some choice words for Justin, but as it turns out, she just wanted a proper meeting with the singer.
A source dispelled the rumors to Variety last week saying Meg's words were, "No, no this don’t count, this don’t count. We gotta meet proper." Now, Megan is addressing the internet theory in an interview with Us Weekly.
“I was just telling him, like, ‘No, no, no. I can’t hear you. I have my in-ears in. This meeting right here does not count. I’m going to meet you after this," she explained. She didn't even know there was speculation of a feud until a friend called her up.
"I don’t have any apps on my phone right now, like social media-wise, so I didn’t know what the hell anybody was talking about. And my friend called me, she’s like, ‘Were you arguing with Justin Timberlake?’ I said, ‘Why would you ask me that? Like, in what world would they say [I’d] be arguing with Justin Timberlake? What are you talking about?’” she said. “Then, when somebody showed me the video, I was like, ‘Oh, my God! I talk with my hands! I’m not tussling with no damn Justin Timberlake.’”
In fact, Megan said the two were “bonding” as two Aquariuses, and that she'd love to work with him at some point. “We got to go bring sexy back, so I’m excited,” she said (something tells us there's no one more qualified for the task than Meg). “I definitely want to do a song with him.”
