Jimmy Kimmel was on Kanye’s hit list just last week, but it seemed the two entertainers have hashed it out. Kanye visited Kimmel’s late night show on Wednesday night to clear the air with the funny man and open up about why he calls himself a “creative genius”.
The feud between Kimmel and West stemmed from the rapper being displeased by Kimmel’s redemption of his recent interview with BBC. Kimmel enlisted child stars to recite actual lines from the West interview in a shortened sketch. “The main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse,” said Kimmel. “I think it’s funny.” He also admitted to taking the quotes out of context.
“When I did that interview, 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 classicification of “just a celebrity”,” said Kanye “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.”
Kanye West had some not so kind words for Kimmel after the “Kid Re-Kreation” skit. Nonetheless, the beef is squashed and swept under the rug. “Jimmy does his thing, I do my thing, and at some point egos can flare up, and we kind of took it back to high school,” said the rapper of the online feud.
