Their relationship? It’s complicated to say the least.
The last time Kanye West stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! five years ago, let’s just say it was a little awkward.
It appears Kanye got his feelings hurt when the ABC late-night host ran a parody video mocking the rapper after a BBC radio interview in 2013 where he boasted, “I’m the No. 1 rock star on the planet.”
After Kimmel went in on Kanye, the hip-hop star tweeted (in all caps no less): “JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS…”
West appeared on Kimmel’s show shortly after and admitted the two stars, “Took it back to high school a little bit…”
West also went on to unleash his frustrations with the fashion world, the Hollywood Walk of Fame for wife Kim Kardashian not having a star and the media. Basically, he had a lot to get off his chest!
So have Kanye and Kimmel let bygones be bygones? We’ll find out Thursday night when Kanye goes one-on-one with Kimmel. It’s Kanye’s first big media appearance since May when he made his controversial slavery comments on TMZ Live.
This should be good! We’ll definitely be watching.
