Kanye West's Jimmy Kimmel Appearance Was Truly Mind-Boggling

Everybody, it finally happened, and the world didn't explode. After Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel had the most epically ridiculous feud over we-can-barely-remember-what, the two got together on live TV to hash it out. We're going to be honest: We were nervous. We're not ones for confrontation, so chances were high for serious cringing. Things certainly started out a little awkward, with the two a bit unsure of how to act around each other. They acknowledged that they let the spat get out of hand, with Kanye admitting, "We kinda just took it back to high school a little bit."

But, then the interview (if you could call it that, it felt more like a peer mediation session, at first) turned into the two men speaking with brutal honesty about their respective sides of the story. Jimmy explained how some people could take Kanye's er, rants, the wrong way, and Kanye gave more of his typical schtick. To be honest, we nodded off for a bit during the rapper's seemingly unending monologue (he lost us somewhere around the stories from art class). But, we came to as soon as the topic of genius came up — just in time to hear another great Kanye-ism. "I'm totally weird and I'm totally honest and I'm totally inappropriate sometimes," he said. "But, you know, for me to say I wasn't a genius, that would just be lying to you and to myself."
After the commercial break, the mood was considerably more jovial, with the two men sharing a joke about Kanye's tweets, and the true insanity of the whole feud. Jimmy even brought a peace offering — a pair of leather jogging pants for North, naturally — which gloriously led into a lengthy sermon about Kanye's role in fashion and luxury, and the barriers he runs into in his quest for sartorial domination. "Everyone just looks at you like you're crazy," he said of meetings with designers. "And, like you don't crash the Internet." We dozed off again after that (seriously guys, this show's on late), and then all of a sudden the performer was threatening us with the reminder that he's hard, saying, "Never think that I'm not from Chicago for one second." Don't ask us how his thought process got him there, because even after we rewinded our DVRs several times, we were still as lost as ever.
All in all, we have to say this was the most entertaining — if not completely perplexing — half-hour of TV we've seen in awhile. Seriously, who needs the drama of Scandal when we can just play the Kanye interview on repeat? (We didn't really mean that, Olivia!) Say what you will about Kanye's complete overzealousness, but it was almost refreshing to hear him wax on (and on and on) about literally every single one of his feelings that he's ever felt. There's no faking it with this guy, and that's something we can appreciate. See for yourself below, and let us know what you think of the spectacle in the comments.
