In what may have been the most anti-climatic “rap beef,” Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel buried the hatchet on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night.
The two exchanged apologies with Kanye admitting that he didn’t watch Kimmel’s parody on his BBC interview in full. That’s okay because Kimmel didn’t think it was that funny to begin with.
And for those non-believers, this feud was 100 per cent real. “I’ve never done a publicity stunt in my life,” said Kanye. “… I don’t follow rules of normal celebrity or what their publicity tells them to say. I don’t do publicity stunts, ever. So don’t ever think that.”
He also shared how he thought it was ridiculous how his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, wouldn’t be able to earn her own spot on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame: “I want to shout out the stars of the Walk of Fame. They said something like they’re not gonna put my girl on the Walk of Fame because she’s a reality star. People are so so dated and not modern. There’s no way a Kim Kardashian should have a star on the Walk of Fame … It’s ridiculous old concepts.”
Asides from that regular tidbit, the Yeezus rapper did share some insightful thoughts, including: “I refuse to follow those rules that society has set up in the way they control people with low self-esteem: with improper information, with branding, with marketing. It’s about truth, it’s about information, it’s about awesomeness. The only luxury is time. The time you spend with your family.”
Makes sense. He is a family man now, after all. You do you, Kanye.
