The “Power” rapper joked around yesterday (Jan. 15) with Britney Spears on Twitter about her newest single “Hold You Against Me” being #1 on iTunes.
“Yo Britney, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL” Kanye Tweeted.
Later, Britney’s manager Adam Leber chimed in with:
@kanyewest Thanks for “letting” us be #1. Much appreciated…. -Adam Leber, Manager
Before his Britney tweet, Yeezy wrote:
“H*A*M #2 on Itunes…THANK YOU!!!”
After his Britney tweet, fans of the singer weren’t too happy about him “Taylor Swifting” her and sent him a lot of mean @replies, to which Kanye responded:
“I thought LOL signified a joke… I didn’t get the 2011 LOL doesn’t signify a joke anymore memo… LOL or something else I guess [...] On a serious note I’m truly happy for @AvrilLavigne and @BritneySpears… No hate in 2011!”
