Kanye West is back at it, philosophising with the world about his particular point of view, and this time he got personal.

The rapper has been known for voicing his theories about society’s organisation and function on social media and in interviews.

His appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday evening brought up discussions of his past, politics, and family.

Amidst the legendary rapper's insightful musings, Kanye opened up about his personal life in a way he never has before.

The Ye rapper got real about growing up in the black community, living with bipolar disorder, and being in the spotlight with controversial political views.

“People said it wouldn’t work out,” he told Jimmy. Each time he proposed another avenue of business, whether it was music, rapping, or clothes design he faced constant adversity.

Two years ago, Kanye was hospitalized for a ‘psychiatric emergency’ after unstable behaviour during his world tour.

According to The New York Times, just before he left the stage, he declared his support for President Donald Trump, saying he wanted to “give y’all the truth.”

On Thursday’s talk show, Kanye talked about his struggle during his recovery since the incident and the backlash he received for his political statement.

After his hospitalisation, he revealed: ‘I had lost my confidence’.

“Everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me.” He was told that if he voiced his support for Trump, he’d ‘get kicked out of the black community’.

“And it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat. No matter what the consequences were.

“People need to be able to express themselves without fear or judgement,” he urged.

He wanted everyone to know that he could not be bullied into changing his opinion.

Kanye explained that he was no stranger to this type of bullying. His upbringing was full of obstacles as an African-American artist dealing with mental health issues.

When he was a child, Kanye was never able to access proper medication for his bipolar disorder.

“I think it's important for us to have open conversations about mental health—especially with me being black.

“Because we never had therapists in the black community. We never approached taking a medication.”

However, the rapper made it clear that he was happy to grow up without being medicated.

“I think it's good that when I had my first complete blackout at age 5, my mom didn't fully medicate me. Because I might have never been Ye.

“And there's times where at least I'm happy that I know [I'm bipolar.]”

For Kanye, the past two years have been about ‘overcoming fear’ with the help of his family.

He is continuing to gain his self-confidence back while dealing with bipolar disorder and public scrutiny on a daily basis.

We hope Kanye continues to keep his recovered confidence and encourage those struggling with mental health issues to build a supportive community around them.

Whether we're having a sh*t time at work, going through a painful break-up, or just freaking out for no particular reason, we can always count on our mothers to bring us back down to earth. 

While motherhood brings its fair share of challenges, it seems to also bring an unintentional sense of awkward humour, which, when combined with modern technology, makes for some most hilarious text messages the world has ever seen. 

And it seems not even celebrities are immune from the phenomenon that is 'Mom texts', as proved in Jimmy Kimmel's latest viral video. 

The clip featured some of Hollywood's biggest stars as the read aloud some of the most well-crafted messages they've received from their mothers. 

Anna Faris read a text that said, "My dear Ani, I hope this doesn't wake you. I just want you to know how proud your father and I are of you. As you know know (sic) we truly believe you are the greatest actress of your generation. We do someday hope you transition into dramatic work."

While actor Jack McBrayer shared a sarcastic masterpiece his mam sent him to thank him for a Christmas ornament. 

 "Thank you Jack. Hope you live long enough to see it in person."

Other stars featured in the video include Adam Scott, Kristen Bell, Tony Hale, Patton Oswalt, Will Forte.

If you're of an awkward disposition and can't bear to watch people embarrass themselves on national television, we suggest you sit this one out.

If, however, you love nothing more than watching people spout absolute nonsense when approached by someone with a microphone, sit back and enjoy what Jimmy Kimmel has to offer this week.

As part of his long-running Lie Witness News segment, Jimmy had his reporter ask the good people of LA if Hillary Clinton should be impeached.

That's right, impeached… despite the fact she doesn't have a job to be impeached from.

And what did they say?

Well, let's take a look here….

Earlier today we reported on Jimmy Kimmel's deeply moving tribute to the dozens of people who were murdered by gunman, Stephen Paddock, on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

While choking back tears, Jimmy offered a commentary on the senseless loss of life seen time and again in the United States due to a distinct lack of adequate gun control.

Insisting that 'prayers and thoughts are insufficient' as the United States comes to terms with the worst mass shooting in history, Jimmy appealed to those in power to use their 'common sense', and actively prevent the public from procuring weapons which can kill and maim hundreds of innocent people in mere minutes.

The studio audience applauded the presenter's heartfelt speech at the top of the show, and Twitter has also been quick to highlight the significance of Jimmy's words.

However, not everyone was as moved by the host's commentary on the massacre, with many taking to Twitter to accuse the father-of-four of an insincere address.

Form comparing car manufacturers with those in support of the 2nd amendment to suggesting that the host's stance was one of a Communist, Twitter didn't hold back when pouring scorn over JImmy's heartfelt plea.

Tragically, it's becoming more and more routine for late-night chat show show hosts to open their programmes with their thoughts on the latest mass shooting to take place on US soil.

Ostensibly, hosts like Conan O'Brien, James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel are hired to front lighthearted late-night chat shows, but viewers now expect a few words from the presenters when incidents like Saturday night's shooting in Las Vegas occur.

Acknowledging this, a visibly emotional Jimmy Kimmel opened his show with a tribute to the people who lost their lives when gunman, Stephen Paddock, opened fire from a hotel room on the Las Vegas strip over the weekend.

"Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy. This time in Las Vegas, which happens to be my home town, Cleeto's home town and Cleeto Snr's home town," he began, choking back tears.

Clearly struggling to understand the motivation behind such an atrocity, Jimmy broke down several times as he made reference to the various people who lost their lives while attending a country music festival in the famous city.

"It's the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up. It's too much to even process," he told viewers before taking aim at the politicians who refuse to address gun control in the United States.

YouTubers responded to Jimmy's devastation, with one social media user writing: "Respect to Jimmy for using his platform to speak some truth."

"Jimmy, thank you for standing up and saying what needs to be said. You are an inspiration," added another.

Take a look at this.

In the days that followed Donald Trump's threat to respond to North Korea 'with fire and fury' if they continued to threaten the United States, Jimmy Kimmel decided to address the topic on his show.

Explaining that a recent poll had revealed that almost two-thirds of America view North Korea as a 'critical threat', Jimmy decided to take to the streets of Hollywood and follow up on the findings with people on Hollywood Boulevard.

After confirming that most people felt that the US should consider military action against North Korea, the same people were asked to locate North Korea on a map.

And then it all went to hell in a bucket.

From one woman hesitantly pointing at – wait for it – Canada to another stabbing her finger in the direction of Europe, it's safe to say that the people Jimmy's team approached should probably sit out this particular discussion next time.

We mean, take a look at this…

For the day that was in it, Jamie Dornan appeared in a segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and it was brilliantly Irish.

Sitting in a pub, Jamie knocked down a pint while telling the camera various words for 'drunk'.

We'll admit that a few were far-fetched and we'd probably only say them if we were langers drunk, but still, the 1.45 minute clip is just gas.

From "sh*t-faced" to "rat-a*sed," and everything in between, here's Jamie Dornan describing 41 Irish terms for drunk:

Dakota Johnson is currently promoting the new instalment of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker.

While being interviewed on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, the actress was roped into a game of Mad Lib Theatre.

Mad Lib is a phrasing game where one player prompts the other for a list of words to fill in blanks in a story, and Dakota and Jimmy's acted-out story is beyond hilarious.

With prompts like "hairless sausages" and "pinching," the hilarity that ensued during their acting session was so gas,even acting pro Dakota had to break character several times to laugh. 

The video is the funniest thing we've seen all day, and now we're even more excited to see the Fifty Shades Darker film.

Chat show hosts and stand-up comedians in the United States have been burdoned with what many would consider an insurmountable task this week.

In a week which will go down in American history for all the wrong reasons, the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon have been relied upon to inject humour into the fact Donald J Trump yesterday became the 45th President of the United States.

But given the understandable anger, distress and frustration felt by millions of American citizens this week, it's not been easy… and yet, they've somehow managed it.

Take Jimmy Kimmel, for example, who acknowledged that for many of his viewers, Trump's election has instigated a process akin to mourning.

Taking that theme and running with it, the uber popular late night host talked his audience through the various stages of grief which he believes they are currently experiencing.

And despite the disheartening subject matter, Jimmy managed to offer up some serious LOLS.

Good man yourself, Jimbo.

For the past five years Jimmy Kimmel has given us much delight by pretending to steal kids Halloween candy.

Every year he asks parents of the world to hide sweets from their little ones to see the reaction… and we have to say, it's hilarious.

Some cry, some throw tantrums, and some call their parents names, but it's all for the love of Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate Their Halloween Candy.

Check out this year's one below, it's gas:

It takes one slick customer to be able to turn the Mean Tweets segments of Jimmy Kimmel Live on someone else, but if anyone can do it, Barack Obama can.

While taking part in the ridiculously popular section of the chat show this week, President Obama deflected insulting tweets like a pro before ripping it out of presidential candidate Donald Trump.

After members of the public blamed their unconditioned hair on the current president and questioned his ability to negotiate a fast food order, the President was hit with a deeply personal remark from none other Donald J Trump.

"President Obama wil go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States," read the tweet.

Facing the camera and reminding everyone just how smooth he really is, President Obama replied: "At least I will go down as a President of the United States."

And with that Twitter fell in love all over again.

 

 

Walk it off Trump, walk it off!

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News segment, it’s that the public really don’t like to admit when they don’t know the answer to something.

From bigging up bands which don’t exist to weighing in on a debate which has yet to happen, there isn’t a subject we don’t think we can wing when it comes to the crunch.

Unfortunately for the US public, Jimmy Kimmel and his crew are often on hand to expose the gaps in their knowledge, and while it’s hideous for those involved, it’s pretty hilarious for the rest of us.

Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went head to head in a presidential debate, and while most people had a lot to say in the aftermath, there were a select few who thought they could offer their opinion on certain remarks… before they had even been made.

Oh, you guys!
