Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up For The Jimmy Kimmel-Kanye Feud

He's mad about something, and we all need to care. It's a shame we can't see Kanye's take on this, but it's pretty awesome that he takes offense like Gyp Rosetti did on last season of Boardwalk Empire. Essentially, the only explanation here is that Kanye West is crazy and can't really be stopped. Just watch. Kimmel addresses it far better that I can, with the same level of befuddlement.

How Do You Improve 'The Canyons' Trailer? The Same Way You Improve Everything. Add Kanye West.

It just needed the drama ratcheted up a little. The Canyons hasn't exactly enjoyed good press since the proejct was announced. There was the Lohan piece in The New York Times, the film festival snubs, and a general sense of dread in the critical world. However, all those hiccups seem to disappear when you put the film against a near-perfect Kanye West song. It fits the nihilistic mood well, and adds a gravity to the film that actually feels organic. The quality of the film certainly remains to be seen, but this trailer gets two thumbs up.


Watch Kanye Sass Matt Lauer on the 'Today Show'

Breaking News: Kanye West has beef. The other day on the "Today Show," the outspoken rapper taped an interview with Matt Lauer which, if you're a reader of Kanye's Twitter you'd know, didn't go smoothly.You'd know this because he wrote, "Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don't trust anyone!" Breaking News: Kanye West has beef. The other day on the "Today Show," the outspoken rapper taped an interview with Matt Lauer which, if you're a reader of Kanye's Twitter you'd know, didn't go smoothly. You'd know this because he wrote, "Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don't trust anyone!" Clearly an interview went south, or Kanye was trapped in an antique cuckoo clock shop at high noon. We now have video evidence of the incident. Lauer asked Kanye about the MTV Video Music Awards/Taylor Swift debacle, and during Kanye's response the show ran footage of the rapper's inappropriate shoutout to Beyoncé. How dare the "Today Show" provide audio/visual aid while Kanye is trying to defend himself. It's a lot harder for him to justify his behavior when you just go and show how unjustifiable it is.

Jimmy Kimmel's Getting Music Stars To Read Mean Tweets Before The Grammys

They should have to read these during their acceptance speech at the Grammys. The Grammys are coming soon, which, whatever, but at least that provides a flimsy enough pretense for Jimmy Kimmel to get back in the saddle and let loose some singin' celebs readin' mean tweets. These tweets seem predominately looks-based, which are about as mean as you can get. And uncreative. But fortunately, the celebs know what they're in for, so it's not like this should come as a surprise. I mean, who would want to see celebrities reading nice tweets? No one, right? It looks like the talk show hosts have been busting out the big guns this week. There can be only one Jimmy. But which?


Parents Continue To Torment Their Kids On Halloween, All For Jimmy Kimmel

They lied to their kids about eating all their candy. Really nice work, parents. If you're like me, you love lying to/disappointing children. So every year, when Jimmy Kimmel does his annual, "parents lie about eating their kids' candy and tape it," I get pretty fired up. Because watching kids cry is funny for those at arm's length, and one day, it will provide the children something to laugh about with their therapists. Hilarious! I sort of got the joke when Kimmel first did this, and thought it was pretty funny. However, after a few years, I think it spotlights some truly deranged parents, and Kimmel, though I understand why he's doing it, is playing a pretty instrumental part in f*cking with the heads of these kids. DOES HE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT CANDY IS TO CHILDREN? There's nothing more important.


Jimmy Kimmel Scored A Pretty Big Guest In Barack Obama Last Night

Maybe he'll get Rick Perry next week. In the interest of fairness. Jimmy Kimmel hosted none other than Barack Obama last night during the President's west coast trip. Never one to squander an opportunity, he asked Barry about all the big issues, including long receipts, smartphones, and, of course, texting. It may not have been the most presidential interview of all time, but it was plenty entertaining, and Kimmel certainly brought his A-game. So did Obama for that matter. He really seemed to be enjoying himself on the show, probably happier than hell that his presidential gig will be up soon enough, and he can return to life as a somewhat normal person after this. In the meantime, bask in the glow of relaxed Obama.


Rihanna Pranks Jimmy Kimmel

That's a pretty good April Fool's prank. Jimmy Kimmel has been known to pull a few pranks in his day. The Sochi wolf, the upside-down twerking girl who caught on fire, and, of course, all those parents mind-f*cking their kids on Halloween and Christmas. It's about time he took some of his own medicine this April Fool's Day. With some help from some staffers, and possibly Kimmel's wife Molly McNearney, Rihanna busted into Kimmel's bedroom at 1 AM while he was sleeping, and with a sound system, lights, confetti, and stripper singles, performed her new song "Bitch Better Have My Money." Kimmel went from being completely bewildered to accepting his fate. He also reminded me that I should buy a robe, in case Rihanna ever comes over in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping, and I need to say hi to her afterwards. (THR)


Jimmy Kimmel Puts Drake In A Beard To Go Out And Ask People About Drake

To be clear, Drake already has a scruffy beard. He dons a big lush one for this bit. Jimmy Kimmel loves "punking" people. Do people still stay "punking?" They should. It's very evocative. Anyway, this time he got R&B star/Canadian Drake and had him hit Hollywood Blvd to ask people what they thought of Drake. Turns out some people like him, and some don't. Who knew? Anyway, he's a pretty good sport, and kind of hard to dislike even with that insanely punchable face.


Jimmy Kimmel Added Some Furbys To 'Fury'

Because the words are similar. And because it's funny. Fury, the Brad Pitt war movie featuring lots and lots of tanks, isn't supposed to be cute. It's, by most accounts, graphic, gory, and traumatic. In an effort to counterbalance that with something fun to watch, Jimmy Kimmel and his minions took to inserting a few Furbys in the mix, giving us a lighter film. Only these Furbys are creeping the hell out of me. I was never in on the Furby craze. Did they always have dead, glowing eyes? Cause...yuck. Kill them, Brad Pitt. A nation thanks you for your service.
