A few weeks ago, Kanye West threw some shade at Jimmy Kimmel over Twitter for a sketch on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that made fun of an interview Yeezy did with the BBC. Kanye was a guest on last nights show and wanted to clear the air — and ended the interview with a another one of his classic rants.
West frequently smiled and joked with Kimmel, but he didn’t apologize for his tweets. Kanye said that all of his public actions are authentic. “I’ve never done a publicity stunt in my life,” he said.
“I’m not running for office,” West told Kimmel. “I’m just here to make good music and make people feel good when they hear my music. When I did that interview, I was really vocal about a lot of things I had been dealing with over the last ten years, when I had been put in the classification as just a celebrity.”
He continued, “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. I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but the intention is always positive.”
