Jimmy has unintentionally found himself on Kanye West’s shitlist, or as Kimmel happily exclaimed: “Finally I’m in a rap feud!”. In case you weren’t even aware of the newest beef, let’s start from the beginning.
Kanye West recently sat down for an interview with BBC1, discussing some of the most random topics and making some asinine statements including:
“I’ve reached a point in my life where my Truman Show boat has hit the painting. And I’ve got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling. As a creative person, as a celebrity. ”
“People are going to look at this interview and say, ‘I don’t like Kanye. He looks mad; I don’t like his teeth.’ We the real rock stars, and I’m the biggest of all of them.”
“‘Dark Fantasy‘ could be considered to be perfect. I know how to make perfect, but that’s not what I’m here to do.”
And the most epic comment of them all:
“Me and Virgil [Abloh] are in Rome, giving designs to Fendi, over and over, and getting our designs knocked down … [We] brought the leather jogging pants SIX years ago to Fendi, and they said ‘no.’…………. How many motherfuckers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?”
Well Jimmy Kimmel decided to take the actual transcript from Kanye’s interview and have it reenacted by kid’s. (Don’t worry, it was edited so Little Yeezy was kid-appropriate). Check out the hilarious spoof entitled “Kimmel Kid reKreation”
Kanye did not find it the least bit funny and took to Twitter to express his anger.
Apparently Kanye’s Twitter rant took place shortly before Jimmy Kimmel taped the next episode of his late night show, and he also called the host to let him know how the issue could be resolved. Jimmy Kimmel decided to read and respond to each of Kanye’s tweets on air.
I don’t really understand what Kanye’s so mad about. As Jimmy said, he took the ACTUAL transcript from the interview and it was only a small portion. I don’t even understand why Kanye is going off the deep end about it. It seemed like it was all in good fun. What do you think?
