Kanye West, Kim Kardashian Board Private Plane in L.A.: Picture
Leaving on a jet plane! Kanye West and Kim Kardashian took to the skies on Friday, Sept. 27, just hours after West's epic Twitter rant against Jimmy Kimmel. The new parents (to daughter North West, 3 months) were spotted getting out of a black SUV and boarding a private plane together in L.A.
Sources tell Us Weekly that the couple's final destination is Paris Fashion Week, which started a few days ago on Tuesday, Sept. 24. The rapper, 36, lived in the French metropolis for several months prior to North's birth, and invested a lot of that time in his passion for designing clothes.
"I spend 80 percent of my time working on [fashion] and 20 percent of my time working on music," he told Zane Lowe in his headline-making BBC Radio 1 interview. "Why do you think the song 'N---as in Paris' is called 'N---as in Paris'? Because n---as was in Paris! That's why we were in Paris. I've put in the 10,000 hours."
Even so, he's had a difficult time getting people in the fashion industry to take him seriously as a designer. "I brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said, 'No,'" he told Lowe. "How many motherf--kers you done seen with a jogging pant?"
That quote, along with a few others, was featured in Jimmy Kimmel's "Kanye Kid Re-Kreation" parody of the interview. Kimmel had two kids reenact snippets of West's sit-down with Lowe for a video -- and West was not amused.
On Thursday, Sept. 26, the rapper unleashed a series of angry, all-caps tweets about the spoof. "JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS," he wrote. "JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE...YOU DON'T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER."
"He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly...and that was really the only choice!" Kimmel said later on his show, noting that West had called him about the parody earlier that day. "'Your life,' he said, 'is going to be much better if you apologize.'"
