Kanye West, Jimmy Kimmel Face Off, Settle Twitter Fight

'Never think that I'm not from Chicago for one second,' West warned about his treatment by the paparazzi.

Let’s get one thing straight. The Kanye West-Jimmy Kimmel feud 
 was real.

When ’Ye appeared on Kimmel’s show on Wednesday night to make peace with the late night host, it became clear right away — from Yeezy’s posture and his seriousness — that despite some suggestions that their beef was a bit, Kanye was dead serious.

“I wish I had thought of that,” Kimmel said of the public fight 
 in his monologue. “I just didn’t. You know honestly I’ve been too busy masterminding the giant prank going on in Washington D.C. right now. That one is going gangbusters.”

It also became that the interview was going to turn into the latest Yeezus rant about art, culture, fashion and the celebrity world, and that Kimmel was going to have to sit back and let Kanye be Kanye.
At the outset, the duo shared a hug and Kimmel immediately apologized for the misunderstanding, which was sparked several weeks ago when he aired a video spoofing West’s hour-long interview on BBC Radio 1.

“I guess we should kind of talk about what happened because I do think that somewhere in you you want people to understand where you’re coming from,” Kimmel said. “Yeah, correct,” ’Ye responded.

Admitting that he’d only seen snippets of the BBC interview before filming the spoof (“Yeah, that’s what I thought,” ’Ye said), Kimmel re-aired some of his bit. “The main reason that I did that is because I like to see kids curse,” Kimmel explained, noting that he was not trying to position Kanye as a child.

And then it was Kanye’s turn. “Everyone out there in TV world, real world, whatever world you stay needs to know that I’ve never done a publicity stunt in my life,” Kanye said, debunking rumors that the whole beef was a prank.

Kimmel recounted the “bad” phone conversation they had after the skit and West talked about how the pair had previously met and Kimmel told him that he wanted the world to know the “good guy” side of Kanye.

To be fair, ’Ye did not watch the whole Kimmel skit either, out of fear of being even more enraged, but said he was hurt because he thought he could trust Jimmy. “This is the one person I know, so I can go and let out everything that I feel about every single bogus Weekly cover. Every single bogus skit… Every person who feels it’s OK to treat celebrities like zoo animals, or act like what they’re saying it not serious … or their dreams are not serious,” West said.

“Egos can flare up and we kind of just took it back to high school a bit,” Kanye continued. “And I got beat up a lot in high school, so I didn’t want to go back to high school,” Kimmel responded, calling the zoo animal a perfect metaphor for the kind of constant tabloid scrutiny celebrities are under.

“Some of these things are hurtful and the truth is important,” Kimmel said. “A lot of times I think you bring it on yourself this misunderstanding of you … I don’t know if you know this, a lot of people think you’re a jerk,” he added as West looked on with a blank expression. To the contrary, Kimmel said he’s often told people what a good guy West is, throwing up a picture of a smiling Yeezy with his arm around Jimmy’s dad at a wedding they both attended.
