ICYMI: Jimmy Kimmel v. Kanye West Debate! (VIDEO)

Here’s a recap of the big Twitter showdown between Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel: Kanye does a BBC interview, Jimmy thinks it’s funny and a bit pretentious and mocks it in a video for his late night show, Kanye doesn’t think it’s funny and goes on a Twitter tirade and the world thinks this is one big old prank.

Turns out, it’s not.

“I wish I had thought of that. I just didn’t,” Jimmy said. “You know, honestly, I’ve been too busy masterminding the giant prank going on in Washington D.C. right now. That one is going gangbusters.”

Kanye (with Kim Kardashian and baby North backstage) appeared on Jimmy’s show last night to take on the digs the comedian gave him.

Kanye says: “People are too scared of getting spooked in a way. Creators get beat up my entire life…I refuse to follow those rules that society has set up and the way that they control people with low self-esteem. This is the one person I know, so I can go and let out everything that I feel about every single bogus Weekly cover. Every single bogus skit…Every person who feels it’s okay to treat celebrities like zoo animals.”

Jimmy defended the 36-year-old rapper, saying, “A lot of people think you are a jerk. I often in my own personal conversations say ‘No. I know this guy. He is not a jerk.'”

Kanye says he’s uncomfortable with 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 could care less about any of these cameras, in all honesty. All I care about is my family.”

He later said: “I’m totally weird. I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes. For me to say I wasn’t a genius, I would just be lying to you and to myself.”
