If this headline means nothing special to you, recall that just a few weeks ago Kanye West sent out a series of tweets to his millions of followers condemning talk-show host and Man Show creator Jimmy Kimmel for a sketch that portrayed Kanye as a child in an interview. Kimmel addressed it on the show, and lo, beef was born.
Was it a stunt? Was it real? At this point it doesn’t matter because hopefully the two will be able to bury the hatchet on tomorrow’s (October 9) broadcast. According to Kimmel, Kanye will be on the show. Kimmel tweeted “TOMORROW NIGHT, MY GUEST WILL BE @kanyewest (for real, yes and was it all a setup, no).”

So: How will this all come out? Who will apologize to whom? Will Kanye acquiesce and admit that he took things a little too seriously and has no sense of humor about himself anymore, or will Kimmel concede to taking pot-shots at an already tired trope of Kanye’s ego when the rapper is just trying to make some art? Was this all a stunt, contrary to Kimmel’s protestations?
Find out tomorrow night.
