    I agree with you Allen .. I have a completely different, new, compassionate understanding of Kanye after hearing him with Jimmy. I was a young fan then confused and critical of him based on media clips, etc., Today I am impressed by his thoughtfulness, sincerity and bravery...regardless of whether or not I agree with him.

  • Natasha Mcclendon

    He wants to say something so bad but he's like they watching me JESUS CHRIST over EVIL Kanye West don't be Afraid THE GREATEST GIFT IS LOVE GOD IS LOVE THE DEVIL IS PURE HATRED AND EVIL

  • GeForced

    Whether Kanye is a genius or not is irrelevant (what is a genius exactly?)
    All that matters is:
    He highlights the idea of society / this world being a simulation.
    E.g. the 2 year old who is free in his mind is completely locked in by the time he reaches age 30
    Obviously there needs to be adherence to rules / structure but this society needs more freedom of thought and less monolithic / rigid ideas.
    It is absolutely NOT DONE in Hollywood to support Trump. You are automatically a bad person for doing so. This makes no sense. It is simply and emotional retort. No, Trump isn't a great person by any stretch. The left is current eating itself however. It is good to have Kanye, who for whatever reason has decided to be extremely vocal about this.
    Finally, he probably is bipolar. Even though he later has said he isn't.
    He seem slightly nervous here. Maybe medicated? I don't know. He seems quite calm but not naturally calm if that makes sense.
    Kanye doesn't disserve all the hate he gets rn

  • Beatty Family Life
    Beatty Family Life 2 days ago

    How does Kimmel not understand Kanye's meaning of the 2 year old and coffee table simulation example? Parents constantly are told or expected to teach their kids to act a certain way and behave a certain way. Of course Kimmel parents dont want their kids to get hurt but Kanyes point is let kids be kids and let them become their own person. Kids are going to sometimes be loud in restaurants, oh well they are kids. There is a big difference in a kid not having healthy structure and kids who are just being kids. Kids are loud, kids have lots of energy, kids jump on furniture and love to have fun. Kanye's thoughts arent simple, theres deeper meanings and Kimmel kept cutting him off and making fun of what he was saying. Like the kids at the border, as human beings we need to help eachother but living in a country that Is already overpopulated and has issues, we cant just open the borders to everyone who wants to come here or escape their own countries. There is a process. These people know that before they come to the border and they do it still to pray their kids can be let in and tax payers will provide for them. There are millions of kids in America already who need safe homes, education, food, etc. There is a solution to helping other people in horrific situations in their home countries but letting them into this country not knowing how they will provide for themselves or their families isn't how it should be done. There is a lot of money and power in this world. But there are also a lot of bad people. Sadly there isnt a solution that guarantees what everyone wants

    Kanye has come a long way. I used to not like him much cuz he was different but yet he was the same as all the other main stream crap. I definitely did not like the porn comment and in that I think he has a lot to meditate on, but he really has come far and I do think in some ways he is a good example, or at least a better one than the many of the other boring/superficial celebrities.

  • K W

    Jimmy literally had two objectives this whole interview and that was to make kanye look stupid and to make him say he didn't like trump especially when kanye notoriously takes time to respond and he didn't let him to make it look like he didn't know what to say
    Also the border thing is the most hypocritical think I've ever heard first of all it happened under Obama and much worse and I didn't see Jimmy or any liberal crying about it and second if they're illegal then sorry but you can't break the law and not expect to pay for it

    somebody explain the wall of coffee tables. i get that the table was something you might have a different perspective on, or might see differently than someone else..... but he lost me on the wall of tables. maybe the tables were the different perspectives of different people; those perspectives shaping the mind, therefore restricting ones chance to be great/different.

    I’m watching as white America uses this creative black man to their advantage. Kanye has gone from saying President Bush doesn’t like black People to being a supporter of Trump an obvious racist, bigot and divisive president. Kanye needs serious help not the applause of White America. Smh

      The democrats make up things saying you are racist if you are republican just so they can keep African Americans in check and sticking to leftist beliefs. They are actually holding minority’s back in this country by saying trump or right wingers saying they are racist.

    Honestly most of the messages this guy is trying to convey are just So deep. I could see how it could be difficult to understand without painting a picture or telling a story or relating a hat to a super man cape that freed him from all the constrictions of society the same way Superman was freed from freakin gravity and the idea of what human strength was capable of

    This one paragraph will cure anyone from bipolar disorder, if they truly understand it, and then follow my directives. Number one: the thought of you being bipolar is actually correct. You are made up of atoms. Atoms have positive and negative poles. For this reason, every single living being on the planet is technically bipolar. Now let's address the mental issue. Your mindset is a reflection of how you interpret reality. If you get very angry or very sad easily, this is all controllable, if you are patient and mature enough to handle your situation. I know for a fact that initially this is not easy. It takes time to shake this stigma when people begin labeling you. I have been through it myself. You will not carry a disease with you your entire life, if your will to win is greater than the disease.
