Kimmel confirms the 'Black Skinhead' rapper will appear on his talk show Wednesday night and 'neither of us is leaving until this government shutdown gets solved.'
Jimmy Kimmel will work out his issues with Kanye West on his talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" with the help of Dr. Phil. The comedian has confirmed the rapper's appearance on the ABC late-night program, telling his audience on Tuesday, October 8, "Kanye and I had a disagreement a couple of weeks ago, and it got a little bit out of hand. Tomorrow night, we will sit down and discuss it like normal people do - on television."
"It'll just be us, and Dr. Phil. And neither of us is leaving until this government shutdown gets solved. So if you've always wanted to see a talk show host get strangled by a pair of leather jogging pants, join us tomorrow," he added. Also taking to Twitter to spread the news, he insisted that his feud with West was not fake as writing, "Tomorrow night my guest will be @kanyewest."
Kimmel upset West when he spoofed the GOOD Music boss' interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe. The comedian recreated the scene with two kids in place of West and Lowe. "Jimmy Kimmel, I don't take it as a joke...," West tweeted. "Jimmy Kimmel, put yourself in my shoes... oh no that means you would have gotten too much good p***y in your life."
Addressing this matter later on his show, Kimmel jokingly said, "Finally, I'm in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud." He also revealed, "He told me I had two choices: apologise publicly ... and that was really the only choice! The other choice he gave was that my life ... 'Your life is going to be much better if you apologize.' "
