NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel quickly dispelled the idea their so-called rap feud was a publicity stunt during a sometimes uncomfortable appearance on the comedian's television show.
Speculation that the rapper's anger over a "Jimmy Kimmel Live" parody skit that mocked him was staged was immediate after West lashed out at Kimmel in late September. But both said on Wednesday night's show that their beef was authentic and discussed why West often comes off as arrogant after the rapper called himself a genius - "A lot of people think you're a jerk," Kimmel said.
West became upset after Kimmel hired a child actor to recreate his interview with BBC and called the comedian the next day, saying, "We kind of took it back to high school."
