Kanye West on Kimmel: Epic rant to clarify last rant

After Kanye went on a Twitter rant following Jimmy Kimmel’s spoof of his BBC interview, the two agreed to talk it out on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. And in true Kanye form, he went on another epic rant to clarify his last rant.

“We had a big dumb fight on Twitter but he was nice enough to come on tonight,” said Kimmel, who tried to cut the tension by opening with accessories. He asked about Kanye’s outfit (“Ralph”), was he wearing a new grill (“No, they’ve been in my mouth for three years”), before showing a clip of the skit that started it all (even Kanye was smiling!)

“The truth is, the main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse,” said Kimmel who admitted he didn’t watch the entire BBC interview. Both assured us this wasn’t a publicity stunt. READ FULL STORY

Government shutdown: The best late-night and celeb reactions

Faster than you can say “meme,” the Internet was aflutter with commentary on today’s government shutdown. Ranging from the angry to the silly to the tweetable, here are the best reactions:

The best late-night government roasting (in addition to Stewart and Colbert’s “Rockin’ Government Shutdown Eve“): “Our government may be shutting down in a few hours. So folks, get ready for absolutely no noticeable difference,” Conan O’Brien said on Monday’s Conan. “All this drama is very confusing to all the hookers in D.C. They don’t know whether they have to go to work tomorrow either,” Arsenio Hall said on The Arsenio Hall Show.

Kanye West vs. Jimmy Kimmel: Real or fake? POLL

Kanye-Kimmel.jpg

Nothing is certain in this post-Twerk-Fail world – which may be why Kanye West’s furious Twitter rant against Jimmy Kimmel has been met with a healthy dose of skepticism. The Associated Press puts it best with this headline: “Kimmel and Kanye West Are at War — Or Are They?”

Let’s examine the facts. First and foremost, Kimmel is a notorious prankster known for tricking passersby with his regular “Lie Witness News” segments, encouraging Emmy viewers to convince the Twittersphere that Tracy Morgan had passed out onstage, and challenging parents to pretend they’ve eaten all their children’s Halloween candy. More importantly, Kanye’s “anger” comes just weeks after Kimmel pulled off his greatest practical joke yet: Convincing the news media and the Internet at large that a girl had actually set herself on fire while trying to twerk.

So if any other celebrity picked a big, public feud with Kimmel, we could be pretty certain that the whole thing was a stunt and nothing more. With Kanye West, though, things are just a bit more complicated.

Jimmy Kimmel reveals he's behind 'twerk fail' viral video

Reason number 259,467 you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet.

Last week, the Internet collectively freaked out over a YouTube video that showed a girl twerking against a doorway, only to be knocked over into a table (Paging Chris Farley!) and setting herself on fire. Uploaded Tuesday, it had been viewed over 9 million times. But for everyone who thought the ‘unbelievable’ video was a bit too, well, unbelievable: You were right. Jimmy Kimmel was behind it.

Kimmel broke the news on his show last night, explaining that the girl is actually a stuntwoman, they filmed the video two months ago, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Miley Cyrus and the VMA Twerk Heard Round The World. He then played a montage of news anchors showing the not-at-all-confirmed-to-be-real video.

Oprah succumbs to her need to give away free stuff on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Making the rounds to promote her new flick Lee Daniels’  The Butler, the one and only Oprah stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to chat it up.

Unfortunately, right in the middle of her interview, Oprah succumbed to an ailment — an ailment that only ridiculously rich and powerful people have. She was worried that it would happen — and it usually does when she skips lunch. I don’t want to spoil it for you, so let’s just say that someone in the audience went home with something that they did not arrive with. Check it out here:

You get a car! And you get a car! Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Will Smith talks 'After Earth' disappointment on 'Jimmy Kimmel'

Will Smith obviously wasn’t thrilled with After Earth‘s box office take last weekend (it opened in third place with $27.5 million). But you don’t become one of the most charismatic actors of your generation by not knowing how to get an audience on your side — which is exactly what Smith did when he swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night last night. After some pleasant chat about basketball (Smith is a partial owner of the Philadelphia 76ers), talk naturally turned to After Earth‘s disappointing weekend.

“Here’s how I think of it, Jimmy,” Smith said with a laugh. “Three is the new one.You know how many ones it takes to make a three?”

Smith went on to explain that obviously the news he was getting from his people on Sunday weren’t his favorite phone calls. “You get the [box office] information moment by moment,” he explained. “Someone is calling you every hour and I was like, ‘Uh oh.’ I felt like a fighter. It’s been over two decades since I’ve had a movie that wasn’t at number one. …That’s over now, buddy! Thanks!”

Jimmy Kimmel challenges spelling-bee champion -- VIDEO

Arvind Mahankali, the 13-year-old from New York who won the 86th Scripps National Spelling Bee last week, visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night for what should have been a victory appearance. Instead,  Kimmel — as is the tradition — challenged him to the 10th Annual Jimmy Kimmel Live Spelling Bee.

For a kid who just won national admiration for correctly spelling “knaidel,” Mahankali may have a bit harder of a time beating Kimmel than viewers might expect. For one thing, Mahankali gets a serious case of the g-i-g-g-l-e-s when Guillermo Rodriguez shows up dressed as an actual bee. For another, Rodriguez takes some creative license with the pronunciation clues. It’s anyone’s game now!

Baby Wesley is Jimmy Kimmel’s nephew, lives with his parents, has some cool dinosaur toys, and is looking for love. So Kimmel decided to make Wesley the first ever Baby Bachelor. The first episode is below and is filled with adorable kids saying adorable things. For the most part, Wesley is a gentleman, opening doors for the ladies, grabbing their hands, and giving one a kiss on the cheek when she’s crying. Still, when a beautiful blonde shows up, who is 316 months old, he can’t help but be intrigued. “I’d like to get the big girl,” Wesley says.
