Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel are, with some help from Dr. Phil, ready to sort out their differences after the late-night show host spoofed a BBC interview featuring West, when all three will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday.
Kimmel announced on Tuesday that West has agreed to be on the show and that they are finally going to sit down and talk about their differences instead of attacking each other through the visual and online media.
"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," Kimmel said on Tuesday.
On his Twitter account, Kimmel added: “For real, yes and was it all a setup, no.”
The feud between West and Kimmel ensued after Kimmel used child actors to re-enact the 36-year-old rapper's interview, where he reportedly came across as egomaniacal. Following this, West launched a series of Twitter attacks against Kimmel, and reportedly even called up the talk show host demanding an apology.
According to Kimmel, West claimed to be the most powerful voice in the media, and said it would be better if he apologized.
“He told me on the phone -- and I swear to God this is true-- 'I am the most powerful voice in media. I am PAC.' He said 'PAC' a few times to me. I guess he means Tupac," Kimmel said, before adding: "He said, 'You will never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old's high school football game and be cool again!' He really is Pac. I mean that's right out of the Tupac playbook, isn't it?"
