Kanye West made an appearance on Wednesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Kanye West made an appearance on Wednesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! He had some special support for the much-anticipated interview as his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, and daughter North West were spotted arriving to the LA studio with him. Kanye kept things casual in ripped jeans and a loose shirt and seemed to make himself comfortable on the set, leaning back in his chair and even cracking a few jokes. He told the crowd, "I'm not running for office. I'm just here to make good music and make people feel good when they hear my music." In true Kanye form, he also went on to refer to himself as "a creative genius," saying, "There's no other way to word it." He added, "I know you're not supposed to say that about yourself, and I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but my intention is always positive."
Kanye's Kimmel stop marks the first time that the rapper and talk show host have come face-to-face since their epic (albeit rather one-sided) feud broke out late last month. After Jimmy spoofed Kanye's in-depth BBC Radio 1 interview on the show, the hip-hop star took to Twitter to call Jimmy "out of line" and lobbed insults at the comedian, including a claim that "Sarah Silverman is a thousand times funnier" than he is. That being said, it was a surprise to everyone when earlier this week Jimmy tweeted, "TOMORROW NIGHT, MY GUEST WILL BE @kanyewest (for real, yes and was it all a setup, no)." When Jimmy addressed the fact that their recent online feud was thought to be fake, Kanye retorted, "Everyone needs to know I've never done a publicity stunt in my life. I don't do publicity stunts period."
