Kanye West was oddly friendly and candid with paparazzi today (seriously, it's not April 1) even explaining why he pummeled a photographer in July.

'Ye said that one thing he didn't get to mention this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live (one of the very, very few things) was the context behind the fight (above).

The rapper says the photographer, Daniel Ramos, set him up, was antagonizing him, and it happened just as he learned his grandfather was dying.

Whether this excuses that or his other big "hits" is an open question, but at least he wasn't talking about being from Chicago and issuing any threats.

Other highlights from Kanye's surprising chat?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't just talk the parenting talk.

They walked the parenting walk this week by attending a class in Los Angeles for first-time mothers and fathers.

The visit took place yesterday afternoon, not long after Kanye appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and made it very clear: all he cares about is family. (He also believes Kardashian deserves a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.)

Safe to say Gloria Allred was unmoved by Kanye West's visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live. The famed victims' rights attorney is calling the rapper out as a shameful disgrace.

After 'Ye threatened the paparazzi during his epic late night rant, strongly implying that he'll keep using force if he deems it necessary, Gloria was fuming.

  • Gloria is All Red

Allred is representing photographer Danny Ramos, the paparazzo who has sued the rapper alleging assault, battery, negligence and violation of civil rights.

Kanye claimed self-defense in that LAX airport altercation, but Allred isn't buying it, and cites remarks by Kanye on Jimmy Kimmel as further proof of her point:

“Mr. West made it clear that he thinks he has the right to attack anyone that antagonizes him by asking him a question he does not like. He thinks that paparazzi are fair game."

Kanye West thinks his baby mama doesn't get the respect she deserves.

It was somewhat lost among his rambling to Jimmy Kimmel about being weird and inappropriate and being from Chicago refusing to follow the rules of society... but 'Ye made it clear:

Kim Kardashian deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Kim Kardashian West

For her fashion line? Her perfume? The Kim Kardashian sex tape with Ray J? West didn't specify - and he's clearly a tad biased when it comes his baby mama.

But let's open this up for debate, readers:

If you watched Kanye West on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, the primary takeaway was that he buried the hatchet with the host and ended their rap feud.

The subtexts? 1) Kanye has a high opinion of himself and loves to hear himself talk; 2) He has no intention of extending an olive branch to the paparazzi.

Seriously. Check out this epic rant to close out the interview:

'Ye made it clear he will continue to defend his family and fight photographers with force if they cross him - pretty brazen for a guy facing criminal battery charges.

He claims he acts in self-defense. The D.A. sees it differently.

Prosecutors want to use video of West's greatest "hits" against the paps as proof that his inclination is to attack first, ask questions later ... or not at all.

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:

Set your DVRs, THGers: Kanye West is on his way to Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In late September, the rapper WENT OFF on the talk show host after Kimmel mocked an interview Kanye conducted with BBC, portraying the artist as immature and insecure.

Kanye's Tweets were so extreme and seemingly so uncalled for that many wondered whether the feud was nothing more than a publicity stunt.

However, West continued the tirade for days, referring to Kimmel as evil and making his beef look rather legitimate.

The photographer accusing Kanye West of battery at LAX Airport this summer won't guarantee that he'll stay away from 'Ye, despite a judge's request.

The judge overseeing the criminal battery charges against Kanye told the prosecutor to get in touch with the alleged victim, paparazzo Daniel Ramos.

The goal was clear: ask him to stay clear of Kanye and not provoke him. Similarly, the judge also ordered West to stay 10 yards away from Ramos.

Not a problem from West's point of view. If he had his way, he'd never see these people again, least of all at his home at 4 a.m. But it's not that simple.

His lawyer, Blair Berk, told the judge that Ramos had been "stalking" and "harassing" Kanye in the past, and fears he will keep right on doing it.

Compromise. It's at the heart of any healthy relationship.

Who takes out the trash? Who controls the remote control? How much do you expose your baby to the press, the cameras and the online universe?

According to Radar Online sources, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been trying not to clash over this final question, despite both sides disagreeing on how to present daughter Nori to the world.

“Kanye never wants anything public to be out there about his daughter," an insider says. "He wants to keep her all to himself and her family, he doesn’t think anyone else deserves to see her."

However, "things are slowly changing," this source adds, as evidenced by Kim releasing a second photo of North West just a few days ago.

Kris Jenner sat down with Ross Matthews and touched on a number of issues.

First, she labeled Khloe Kardashian as a strong and sensitive.

Then, she gushed and gushed and gushed over quasi son-in-law Kanye West.

"I love him so much, and he's such an amazing boyfriend to Kim and a great dad and a wonderful person," Kris said.

And she wasn't done praising the rapper, either.
