Jimmy Kimmel used his late show monologue to address last night's strange and wonderful series of Tweets from Kanye West. The rapper, apparently angered over a spoof video of kids recreating West's "#1 rock star on the planet" declaration, called Kimmel a "MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF***ER" and said he didn't have any "good p***y." Kimmel said, "I don't understand it, I don't know why he's angry again."

Before the show, Kimmel said that West called him. Here's the video:

From E! News:

"Quick question," Jimmy kicked off the show. "Did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago? Just me? OK, I didn't know if he was mad at all of us."... "He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly...and that was really the only choice!" Jimmy said. "The other choice he gave was that my life—'Your life,' he said, 'is going to be much better if you apologize.' Then he started tweeting today and I don't even know if I've seen some of these tweets, because they're happening as we speak..."

"He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly...and that was really the only choice!" Jimmy said. "The other choice he gave was that my life—'Your life,' he said, 'is going to be much better if you apologize.' Then he started tweeting today and I don't even know if I've seen some of these tweets, because they're happening as we speak..."

Kimmel went through the Tweets, including, "SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU FUCKING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!" but Kimmel pointed out the Affleck one was a spoof. The late show host said, "And he told me this on the phone, I swear, he said, 'I am the most powerful voice in media. I am 'Pac! He said 'I am 'Pac' a few times to me. He said, 'You'll never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old's high school football game and be cool again.' He really is 'Pac. That's right ouf of the Tupac playbook, isn't it?... I don't understand it, I don't know why he's angry again. I thought the bit was pretty innocuous. Finally I'm in a rap feud."

Hopefully West will go back on Twitter to discuss this further!
