Kanye West made amends with Jimmy Kimmel after a childish feud over a spoof of his Zane Lowe interview by appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Kanye talked about the skit that hurt him and started the highly publicized Twitter feud, going to a family member of Kimmel‘s wedding, the media and much more. So much, that Kanye‘s interview went overtime and other scheduled guests got rescheduled.
Kanye in a kind voice ranted a bit about fashion, the paparazzi and even Kim Kardashian deserving a star on the Hollywood walk of fame.
Jimmy made it known that Yeezus is a kind soul. He even gave Ye a pair of leather jogging pants for his daughter, North West.
The interview spawned a dozen classic Yeezy quotes.
On being a genius:
“For me, 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 … and I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but my intention is always positive.”
On his image, and being classified as a celebrity:
“I’m not running for office. You know what I’m saying? I’m just here to make good music, make people feel good when they hear my music. And you know, when I did that interview, I was really vocal about a lot of things I had been dealing with over the past 10 years when I was putting in the classification of ‘just a celebrity’ because for me, you know, 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, and I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but my intention is always positive.”
On the paparazzi:
“It’s not safe for you in this zoo. Never think that I’m not from Chicago for one second,”
“You do help me get money, paparazzi. You show people how fresh my outfit is.”
