Kanye West is to appear on US late-night television show Jimmy Kimmel Live, less than a fortnight after he lashed out at the TV host for his parody of West's now infamous interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1.

Last month, (September 26), West reacted angrily to a parody interview aired on Kimmel's TV chat show, in which he spoofed Kanye's extraordinary radio interview. You can watch the send-up, which sees a child actor re-enact Kanye's bizarre and lengthy rant in which he proclaimed himself the "Number One rock star on the planet", while sipping a chocolate milkshake, at the bottom of the page.

West fired off a series of Tweets in response to the interview, but has now removed all of them from his Twitter feed. Originally, he had written: "JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS." Later in his rant, which eventually ran to 10 tweets, West revealed he had called Kimmel to discuss the interview skit, writing over two tweets: "I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING... WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN'T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES.

Although it has been suggested that the feud was staged for publicity, Kimmel has posted on Twitter "TOMORROW NIGHT, MY GUEST WILL BE ?@kanyewest? (for real, yes and was it all a setup, no)".
