Justin Timberlake has laughed off recent comments he made about NSYNC being better than One Direction.
Speaking to US radio show The Breakfast Club last week, the Mirrors singer said of the Brit boy band: "I'll be willing to say that we're better than them but I'm not laying down any gauntlet."
He added: "I've seen them a couple of times and I like those guys. It's interesting to see that whole wave come around."
However, when NME tweeted a link to their story covering Justin's comments, the 32-year-old singer retweeted the message and joked that he was actually referring to a pie eating contest.

One Direction were in the audience watching when Justin and his NSYNC bandmates reunited on stage at the MTV VMAs.
