“Justin told Megan, ‘It’s so nice to meet you.’ Megan replied, ‘No, no! This don’t count, this don’t count! We gotta meet proper,’” according to ET.
Another source told ET that “Meg loves Justin” and “it was their first time meeting, and she was excited.”
Megan Thee Stallion captioned the TikTok with “I just talk with my hands lol.” Music played over the video of the two laughing and smiling.
Timberlake reunited with his boy band NSYNC to present the award for Best Pop Video, which went to Taylor Swift. It was also a big night for Megan Thee Stallion as she graced the stage that evening with Cardi B to perform their new hit song “Bongos.”
