It was almost a boy band brouhaha and throwdown when Justin Timberlake allegedly declared that his former boy band ‘N Sync are/were better than current genre rulers One Direction. Whoa! WTF is up with dat?

JT was reportedly quoted as saying, “I have not seen them on stage, but I’d be willing to say that we’re better than them.” He qualified the statement, saying, “But I don’t feel like I’m laying down any gauntlet. I’ve seen them a couple times and I like those guys. It’s interesting to see this whole wave of that come back around.”

Sounds like a serious diss of Harry Styles and Co. right? Before Directioners go into defend-til-the-death mode, JT took to Twitter to say that his comments were taken out of context and had something to do with … pie eating?

We don’t get it either, but … now there is no need to challenge each other to charity boxing matches and all that stuff. There’s no JT vs. 1D battle about to take place in the social media sphere or in the ring.

See JT’s tweet. Notice the lil’ dig about media sources making news outta nothing in the 24-hour news cycle style. Zing!
