Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel have been having major drama – like 6th grade girls fighting over a mutual crush drama – but they decided to try and awkwardly bury the hatchet on Jimmy’s show on Wednesday night. Kanye appeared and not only sorta kinda apologized for maybe overreacting just a tiny bit, but also felt the need to proclaim his own genius yet again and came off just as egotistical as ever.
In case you have no idea what any of this is about, allow me to catch you up quickly: Kanye did that balls-t0-the-wall insane interview on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show, which got tons of attention around the world, and not necessarily the best kind, either. Jimmy was one of the people who made fun of the interview, and Kanye lost his damn mind over Jimmy’s jokes and that’s where we are.
On Jimmy’s show last night, he outright told Kanye that he brings a lot of criticism on himself because he does very often come off like a jerk, which led Kanye on this rant:
“I was really vocal about a lot of things that I’ve been dealing with over the past ten years when I was put in the classification of ‘just a celebrity’.
“I’m a creative genius and there’s no other way to word it. I know you’re not supposed to say that about yourself. I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but my intention is always positive.”
“If you guys look at the Zane interview, it’s really something extremely fearless for someone in my position to do, because most people bow down to TV and bow down to these cameras.
“I couldn’t care less about any of these cameras in all honesty. All I care about is my family, I care about protecting my girl, my baby and protecting my ideas and my dreams and that’s why I went so crazy.”
“I’m totally weird and I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes, and the thing is, for me to say I wasn’t a genius, I would just be lying to you and myself. You gonna love me? You gonna hate me? But I’m gonna be me.”
Well, that’s that, I guess. I’m not quite sure of Kanye is legit suffering from delusions of grandeur, if he’s “faking it til he’s making it” (unlikely) or what his deal is, but he needs to just stop.
First part of the interview is below – click through for the subsequent parts (why they didn’t just put it in one video is beyond me, but there you have it):

Kanye West flipped out over a joke Jimmy Kimmel made at his expense, which is odd behavior for Kanye. It’s so unlike him to overreact and take his feelings to twitter where he slewed a series of caps locked bizarre and thus hilarious insults at Mr. Kimmel’s way.
I’m on team Kanye solely for the entertainment factor (which is why I’m always on team Kanye, it’s the most entertaining team) but he handled this thing so poorly. But he’s got someone coming to his defense: Irving Azoff, a manager in the music industry who represents Christina Aguilera, Van Halen, Jewel, Journey, and a mishmash of other current artists and old favorites.
Mr. Azoff tweeted,
Hey @jimmykimmel @kanyewest kicked your ass. You look like a joke trying to exploit this.
. @jimmykimmel your low blow comment was uncalled for and shows that you still don’t understand the big time.
Really? Dude, come on, give Jimmy Kimmel credit. I think he’s made it to the big time by now.
Mr. Kimmel’s latest response to all this was (via twitter),
my response to @kanyewest last night http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It05EvqFD6s&feature=youtu.be … #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK
I challenge you to a rap battle @kanyewest #Iplaytheclarinet
I didn’t watch the whole video because honestly, I don’t care that much. I skipped around. He basically read Kanye’s tweets on his show, one by one, in his opening monologue with some tame comments.
Does anyone think that maybe they’re both in this together as a joint joke? I want to believe.

Kanye West is REALLY mad at Jimmy Kimmel. Mr. West took to twitter, caps lock in full effect, to blast Kimmel for joking about him on his show. When South Park called him a gay fish he didn’t freak out, but for whatever reason, he flipped out over a sketch Kimmel did mocking Kanye for his recent brag-filled interview with Zane Lowe. Here are his tweets, from oldest to most recent:
JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS
JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON’T TAKE IT AS A JOKE…. YOU DON’T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER
JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD
P-SSY IN YOUR LIFE…
YOU CAN’T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY… IS THAT FUNNY?… OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???
SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F-CKING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK#ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!
I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY’S WEDDING
WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN’T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF-CKER.
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!
He then tweeted a photo of Kimmel with the words “NO GOOD P-SSY” over it and then tweeted an image of Spongebob Squarepants holding a rainbow with the words “JIMMY KIMMEL FACE MOTHERF-CKER” (shown above, edited).
All he’s doing is giving Kimmel more material. Does he not realize that?

There’s not much in the way of news going on this week, so now you get a story about how Jimmy Kimmel got married to his girlfriend Molly McNearney over the weekend. We all love a good wedding, though… or something?
From US Weekly:
Jimmy Kimmel is a married man! A little less than a year after proposing to longtime love Molly McNearney, the ABC late-night TV host said “I do” in a star-studded wedding in Ojai, Calif., on Saturday, July 13, sources confirm to Us Weekly.
The happy event, held at the Ojai Valley Inn, was attended by several of the couple’s A-list pals, including Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon and wife Luciana, Jennifer Aniston and fiance Justin Theroux, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi, and Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski. All told, there were around 300 guests, one insider shared. (Kimmel, 45, had previously told Us Weekly it would be “mostly a family affair.”)

I know, I know; it’s a joke and Fisher-Price doesn’t really make GTL sets for babies (I don’t think). But still. I’d almost feel bad for Snooki (I mean, come on—look at her face in these pictures. Mildly amused is putting it nicely) if it weren’t for the fact that she’s a complete moron who dug her own publicity grave. I mean, what. People are supposed to take Snooki all serious now because she’s pregnant? We’re supposed to forget that, prior to getting knocked up, she was a fight-provoking, shot-taking, I’ll-f-ck-anyone-if-I’ve-had-enough-to-drink skankbot? But now that she’s pregnant, so we have to pretend that she’s going to be an entirely different person after that baby’s born? Well, for the sake of that poor child, I hope so. I hope that Snooki‘s general distaste for this faux-GTL playset is genuine, and that she really looks back on the mistakes of her past with something both quite like disdain and education, because wow. If not? That poor baby’s in for a hell of a time. Honestly, just look at this picture:
Also in Snooki news, she’s chosen J Woww to be the godmother of her son, Lorenzo. Isn’t that great? And her pregnancy hormones are making her have all sorts of crazy violent dreams. About her baby dreams, Snooki says:
“I had a dream that [my son] came out and he was a gorgeous little baby, then he turned 2, and he turned into a Chucky doll and he was trying to kill me. I was like, throwing him off the bed and he was like, ‘Mommy, why did you throw me off the bed [and] try to kill me?’ I don’t know why I dreamt that!”
I don’t know. I had a whole ton of sex dreams when I was pregnant, most of them at least a little inappropriate. But leave it to Snooki to have crazy, mother-killing dreams about Chucky dolls named Lorenzo. This doesn’t surprise me at all, you know.

OK, so you remember how grossed out I was that Alicia Silverstone chews her cud and spits it into her kid’s mouth, right? I apparently wasn’t the only one who thought the video deserved a little bit more attention than it had gotten, because Jimmy Kimmel did one of his fabulous f-ck-with-your-kids challenges and the end result was … well, it was horrendously, deliciously hilarious, and yes, I do intend a pun to rear its head in there somewhere.
Jimmy asked parents to “Silverstone” their kids, and generally, the poor things were as completely as repulsed by the whole practice as I was, but I can’t tell a lie: there were a few freaks thrown into the mix who totally didn’t seem to mind that their meals had been partially chewed and spit out like yesterday’s … well, food.
See what little Bear Blu’s got to look forward to when he’s older? You know, aside from the whole joy of being called ‘Bear Blu‘?
