Kanye West on Jimmy Kimmel Live: I'm Totally Weird and Honest!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The beef is squashed. But the legend of Kanye West remains.

The rapper appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, just a couple weeks after going off on an epic rant against the talk show host.

And after Kimmel tried to diffuse the tension via a bit of small talk (asking about West's  outfit and grill), he actually showed a clip of the skit that started the feud… and then it was all classic Kanye.

As best we can gather, here's a rundown of the rambling thoughts offered up by Kanye West during a lengthy interview:

On being famous: I’m not running for office, I’m just here to make good music, make people feel good…for me, I’m a creative genius and there’s no other way to word it and I know you’re not supposed to say those things about yourself… I’m more of a messenger than a rapper.

On his priorities: I could care less about any of these cameras, in all honesty. All I care about is my family.

On his personality: I’m totally weird and I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate at times.

On Kim Kardashian: There’s no way that Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame.

On his Twitter outburst: They were really fun to me as I was writing it… the only reason why I could do that is because we could speak on a similar level and go back and forth… I just thought that this was amazing you know, just crack media…I do everything I can to break media… You shoulda saw the second set of tweets!

On problems in the world: It’s not about racism anymore, it’s classism... I refuse to follow those rules that society has set up and the way that they control people with low self esteem.

On the paparazzi: I should be respected and such when I walk on the street... Never think I’m not from Chicago for one second... I understand you gotta get your money, and its hard out here… [but] it’s a lack of decency.

So there you have it, folks. Watch two more clips of Kanye on Kimmy below and sound off on the beautiful craziness of Kanye West:

Anyone who would defend this piece of shit is either under the influence or has no self worth. For him to think because he is BLACK that he's some 1/2 bad motherfu*ker is an illusion. He needs to be bitch slapped by "WHITEY" on National TV and this would put an end to the 1/2 bad 1/2 bitch legacy of this gate mouth catfish looking Neanderthal looking co*ksucker. As far as the truth- the truth is what I perceive it to be and I have Zero interest in negotiating or debating the matter. ANYONE AND EVERYONE that would defend this peckerhead - well...I have to wornder about them- scratch that.... I don't even have to do that!

Only proves that you're an elitist prick too. You're full of ignorance.

Every time this knucklehead opens his mouth, he makes total fool of himself with the added enjoyment of a gold/diamond grill to dazzle you!

KEYWORD here is *WEIRD* .to the MAX. He is one of the weirdest males in HOLLYWOOD now. Kim is the business mogul and he will soon be the PUPPET, if he isn't already. He TALKS like a FOOL or IMBECILE, and he has too much NOTHING to even consider himself as a genius.. He ISN'T anything close to it, and his in his mind, his FANTASY is he actually thinks he is a KOOL thing, and the last part works. THING!!! If he is a singer, lets hear him actually SING, and carry a TUNE, because anyone with RHYTHM can talk to the beat of ANYTHING. A GENIUS was *Michael Jackson* and Kanye,(YOU ARE NO Michael Jackson).

First off, all of what you just wrote only proves that you are exactly what he's fighting against, which are elitist jackasses like yourself and probably half of the son of bitches on this site. You don't own a single fucking album of his so how the hell would you know anything about him other than what you think you see being played out in the tabloid magazines and gossip Tv? You're pathetic. This man has changed my whole outlook on him and I have more compassion for what he's going and what he's gone through. He's honest about who he is and what he's here to do. He's a flawed human being just as we all are....two things I know for sure is that he and Kimmel squashed the beef and second, you wouldn't dare say any of the bullshit you just wrote to Kanye's face because you know damn well he will Chicago Chin Check you!

(or whatever) but I must tell you
Tigerlily, I am very impressed
with both your wisdom & your
realization and acceptance of
human imperfection.It is so
refreshing to see an intelligent
comment & the power of reasoning especially when dealing with the
many 'sensability challenged'
commenters on this site.I too,
have had a great change of
heart towards Kanye of late.I'm
glad I did too because I found his
work to be amazing.Excellent response to the comment above.
