Kanye West On Jimmy Kimmel Live: Addresses Twitter Tirade, Says He’s Treated Like A “Zoo Animal”

Published

on

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel are back on good terms.

The rapper made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night and buried the hatchet with the late night host. The duo confirmed that their Twitter feud over the host’s spoofed interview of Kanye’s sit-down with BBC was not a publicity stunt.

“Everyone out there in TV world, real world, whatever world you stay in, needs to know I’ve never done a publicity stunt in my life. Anytime I went up and spoke my mind, whether it put my career in jeopardy or whatever someone so called said, it was always what I thought was the truth … I don’t follow rules of normal celebrities or what the publicists tell them to say, I don’t do publicity stunts ever,” West said.

During last night’s interview, the new dad justified why he went on the Twitter tirade slamming the late night host.

“I know you. A combination of me knowing you, but also me not knowing the person who put a bad headline on the cover of InTouch, and me not knowing this person, I was like ‘this is the one person I know,’ West said. “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 okay to treat celebrities like zoo animals.”

Kimmel later referred to West calling himself a genius during the BBC interview, saying that it is a weird thing to say. “When you said you think you’re a genius, I think that upsets people,” Kimmel said.

“I’m totally weird,” West explained. “And totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes, and the thing is for me not to say I’m not a genius I’d be lying to you and to myself,” the “Black Skinhead” rapper shared.

Kanye’s interview on Wednesday night went so long, the night’s musical guest, the Arctic Monkeys, were bumped from the show.

Issa, Anthony, Sterling … Oh My! This Is Who We’re Rooting For At The Golden Globes

Published

Another year, another award show … but this time around a few new names have made the nominations cut.

The 2018 Golden Globes nominees were announced on Monday and some of our favorites like Anthony Anderson, his show “black-ish”, Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq”), Octavia Spencer (“The Shape Of Water”) and Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) made the list again. But some newbies were announced that have us giddy like it’s Christmas morning.

First up, we’re super glad that “Get Out” is being recognized, although it’s in the “Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical” category (womp) and to see David Kaluuya getting some love is pretty dope.

In addition, one of our FAVE singer is now being recognized for her acting prowess! Mary J. Blige scored a nod for her supporting role in “Mudbound” and we can’t wait to see what she wears to the big show.

And although this is Issa Rae’s second year being a Golden Globe nominee, we’re just as excited as if it were her first! Oh, and maybe the Globes will get it right this year (wink, wink).
