Jimmy Kimmel Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences

The late night talk show host, who has hosted ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ since 2003 on ABC, will emcee the 90th Academy Awards telecast for the second consecutive year on March 4th next year. The Academy and ABC network revealed that Kimmel will re-team with producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd as well, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Donald Trump Stephen Colbert James Corden Jimmy Kimmel

Since the news broke earlier this week that President Donald Trump had fired the director of the FBI James Comey, people around the world have reacted with a mixture of shock and incredulity.

Despite the fact that Trump's presidency is actually quite terrifying for the people who live in America, you can't deny that the man has high entertainment value. He makes himself extremely easy to make fun of, especially when he's living up to his 'Apprentice' catchphrase 'You're fired!'.

Matt Damon "Bumped" By Jimmy Kimmel In United Airlines Skit


Matt Damon Jimmy Kimmel

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel put aside their light-hearted ‘feud’ for a hilarious segment skewering United Airlines for its recent passenger-bumping PR disaster on the latter’s late night chat show this week.

The two have been engaged in fictitious feud with each other for eight years, largely revolving around how Damon never gets invited as guest to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!” However, they joined forces for the sake of capitalising on the great social media talking point of the last fortnight – the United Airlines scandal in which a passenger was dragged off a United airplane by airport police because he had been bumped from the internal flight.

Legendary Comedian Don Rickles Dies At The Age Of 90


Don Rickles Jimmy Kimmel

The world of comedy is in mourning after Don Rickles, one of the true giants of the art form, passed away this week at the age of 90 from kidney failure.

The highly influential comedian, renowned for his lightning-quick wit and observational comedic insults, died on Thursday (April 6th) at his home in Los Angeles, his publicist told The Hollywood Reporter.

Rickles, who was born in Queens, New York in 1926, quickly became famous in Las Vegas and achieved headliner status, becoming loosely associated with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack in the 1950s after insulting the legendary crooner to his face and getting many laughs out of it.

Jimmy Kimmel Announces Trump-Free Tuesday - And It's Unsurprisingly Refreshing


Jimmy Kimmel Donald Trump

It's no wonder that Jimmy Kimmel is thinking about retirement from the talk show business, what with Donald Trump's various antics inciting an endless stream of must-be-addressed issues since his election. Thus, he decided to take a well-earned break with 'Trump-Free Tuesday' this week.

Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel declares Trump-Free Tuesday

Yesterday (February 28th 2017) the talk show host decided to disregard the President's Congress address on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' and declared it an official 'Trump-Free Tuesday'. We don't blame him. If we had to write monologues all the time about the crazy things Trump says, we'd get tired of it too.

Oscars Host Jimmy Kimmel Under Fire For "Mocking" Mahershala Ali's Name


Jimmy Kimmel Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Mahershala Ali

While the La La Land / Moonlight confusion inevitably stole the headlines at last night’s Oscars ceremony, the telecast’s host Jimmy Kimmel has come under fire for ‘mocking’ actor Mahershala Ali’s name and ‘devaluing’ his Best Supporting Actor win.

When the first Oscar of the evening went to the 43 year old American actor for his role in Moonlight, making him the first ever Muslim to win an academy award, Ali took the time to pay a heartfelt tribute to his wife Amatus, who had given birth to their first daughter just a few days previously.

“I just want to thank [my wife] for just being such a soldier through this process and for carrying me through it all,” the star said.

Jimmy Kimmel Is Seriously Considering Hanging Up His Talk Show Hat


Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel is contemplating retirement following the expiration of his 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' contract in 2019. Because of his perfectionist tendencies, he ends up making a lot of work for himself on the ABC show, and he could really do with some time out.

Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel may be leaving late night television for good

'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' has been on the air for 14 years, and the self-confessed 'control freak' host has claimed to spend up to 70 hours a week working on each episode; from writing monologues to researching his guests for interviews. So it's no wonder he's considering not renewing his contract in the Fall of 2019.

How Jimmy Kimmel's Daughter Reacted To The Halloween Candy Prank


Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel continued his reign of terror on Trick-or-Treaters with the sixth annual Halloween candy prank. This year, however, was the first time he got to do the prank himself on his 2-year-old daughter Jane. Needless to say, it didn't go as well as he'd hoped.

Every year on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', we get to see videos of parents pulling the 'Halloween candy prank'; the ultimate in mean tricks to play on your children. Basically, your kid goes Trick-or-Treating, picks up a huge collection of candy from the neighbours, you send them off to bed when they get home and they wake up excited to indulge in the previous nights sugary pleasures.

Naturally, Jimmy didn't need too much persuading to join in the fun.

Jimmy Kimmel Takes The Emmy For "Lame" Maggie Smith After She Fails To Appear For The Ninth Time


Maggie Smith Jimmy Kimmel Minnie Driver

Dame Maggie Smith won her fourth Emmy award last night and once again the British actress failed to turn up to collect her trophy. It was the ninth time Smith had been nominated for an award at the annual ceremony and she’s never once made an appearance. But this year host Jimmy Kimmel wasn't going to let her get away with it.

Dame Maggie SmithMaggie Smith has had nine Emmy nominations and four wins, yet she’s never attended a ceremony

During his opening monologue Kimmel called out the ‘Downton Abbey’ actress for her perceived lack of interest in the Emmy awards. “This year there's a new rule,” he began. “For the first time ever, you must be present to win. If we call your name and you're not here to accept, the Emmy goes to the next name on the list. It's called the Maggie Smith rule.”

Johnny Depp is seemingly determined to continue his war of words with the Australian deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce over the ‘dog smuggling’ incident that landed him and his wife Amber Heard in court, mocking the apology video they recorded and saying that Joyce looks like he’s “inbred with a tomato”.

Dropping by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Tuesday night (May 24th), he made the comments when asked by the host about the episode last year in which Joyce threatened to have the couple’s two Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo put down unless they left the country within 50 hours, after it was believed that they were smuggled illegally.

John Legend Jimmy Kimmel

US fans bid farewell to ‘Downton Abbey’ on Sunday night (March 6th), after six seasons of the British drama.

Ben Affleck Sneaks Matt Damon Into 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Under His Coat


Matt Damon Jimmy Kimmel Ben Affleck

Matt Damon might have failed at landing a Best Actor Oscar this year, but he has managed to make his way onto 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' finally with the help from his best friend Ben Affleck. Of course, his stay was very brief as Kimmel was soon able to kick him off, but it was enough to please the audience.

Matt DamonMatt Damon sneaks onto Jimmy Kimmel Live

As part of the post-Oscars show, Ben Affleck arrived onto the stage of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', nonchalantly wearing a massively bulging overcoat and claiming that finishing training for his Batman role has meant that all his muscle has turned to fat. In response to Kimmel's comment that he's 'ballooned', Affleck quipped: 'I didn't think this was going to be about body-shaming tonight'. But Kimmel was not to be fooled by the absurd moving bump and immediately got up to see what Affleck was hiding. It turned out to be a very red-faced Matt Damon, panting a little from the lack of oxygen, who unstraps himself from a body harness that Affleck is wearing and garners huge applause from the audience, to Kimmel's chagrin.

Almost exactly a year to the day since he seriously injured his arm in a bike accident in New York, U2 singer Bono will be auctioning a bicycle ride as part of a charity campaign for his organisation (RED), which raises money to tackle AIDS.

These Jon Snow Impersonators Know Something...


Jimmy Kimmel

'Game of Thrones' is massive, with widespread appeal to a huge audience of millions of fans. While the fifth season has been getting a bit of flack recently, one of the few characters to still have massive support from fans is Jon Snow. The Stark outcast and current Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, tasked with keeping the realms of men safe from the undead White Walkers, is certainly a fan favourite, along with Daenerys Targaryen - the Mother of Dragons - and Tyrion Lannister - the fast-talking, rich, and highly intelligent dwarf. 

Kit Harrington is Jon Snow in HBO's 'Game of Thrones'Kit Harrington is Jon Snow in HBO's 'Game of Thrones'

Part of what makes actor Kit Harrington's portrayal of Jon Snow so favourable with fans is (aside from his contract-bound hair) his deep, Northern English accent. An accent which is easily recognisable, yet hard to reproduce. In a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Harrington appeared on the show, and saw what some of the fans thought of the voice.

Though they respectively constitute the cream of the movie and TV worlds, Matthew Mcconaughey and Jimmy Kimmel took some time out to boost the grassroots of the entertainment industry by teaming up to promote a local video store at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.

Jimmy Fallon Jimmy Kimmel David Letterman

Seven months after Fallon’s Tonight takeover, everything looks great in Late Night Land. Not only has the former late night host managed to revive ratings, he’s managed to keep them high – so high, if fact, that this past week of re-runs topped Tonight originals’ numbers from the same period last year, according to The Hollywood Reporter. THR reports that at this point, Fallon holds 34% of the most coveted demographic – viewers aged between 18 and 49.

Jimmy Fallon
Fallon has ushered in a revival for Tonight.

But oddly enough, this influx didn’t come at the expense of other late night formats. Instead of reeling in viewers from competing late night formats, Fallon has brought in new viewers. His wide margin of victory hasn't taken away any considerable portion of David Letterman's or Jimmy Kimmel's audiences. Kimmel even wrapped May virtually steady with his showing that month last year. In fact, Kimmel is on track to wrap the 2014 season with the highest numbers his show has seen since 2003, according to THR.

Shailene Woodley is quite the anomaly in the world of showbiz: not because her image isn't crafted but because she at least claims not to buy into the 'more, more, more' mentality of materialism like many of her peers. The actress, who is best known for her role in the recent teen series adaptation, Divergent, appeared on Thursday's episode of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! during which she discussed her unusual, if not refreshing, approach to life.

The 86th Academy Awards

The 86th Academy Awards: The night we'd all been waiting for was finally here: this year's Oscars ceremony has come and gone along with another ground-breaking year in cinema. 12 Years a Slave predictably took Best Picture but Gravity emerged as the movie of the evening with seven awards, five of which were in the technical categories. Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett triumphed with their respective acting awards, pizza was served, Lupita Nyong'o was the darling of yet another awards show and high-scoring host Ellen Degeneres wrapped up the festivities with a neat and expertly-timed bow.

The Oscars Selfie: They say a picture speaks a thousand words but nowadays an image is judged by how many retweets it can get within the shortest space of time. When Ellen Degeneres decided to get a couple of stars together for an impromptu selfie, she probably didn't expect the shot - which featured Bradley Cooper, Brangeline, JLaw, Lupita, Kevin Spacey, Jared Leto, Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep - to surpass Obama's re-election shot's previous world record. The snap broke Twitter, attracting 80,000 retweets within 30 minutes and 1.2 million in an hour.

More than 2000 admirers filled the Los Angeles Convention Center to pay tribute to King. Past MusiCares honorees Bonnie Raitt, Gloria Estefan and David Crosby were also in attendance along with the likes of Yoko Ono, Ciara, Diane Warren, Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, USA Today reports.

Unfortunate Trick-Or-Treaters Once Again Fall Victim To Jimmy Kimmel's Annual Halloween Prank


Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel, late show host, comedian and prankster extraordinaire is at it again. If for you, like for us, Kimmel’s annual Halloween prank is the highlight of the holiday, well you might just be a terrible person. But also, he did it again in 2013 and it’s more hilarious than ever. Meaning, there are more creative temper tantrums than ever. Who would imagine that there were so many ways for a child to protest their stolen candy.

Jimmy Kimmel, LACMA 2013
Jimmy Kimmel, the bane of any trick-or-treater's existance.

In case you’re not familiar with the whole affair, it’s all pretty simple. In 2011, Kimmel asked parents to tell their kids that they ate all their Halloween candy, record the little darlings’ (sort of) reaction and upload it to youtube with the title “Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.” The result was so undeniably hilarious, that the show turned it into an annual affair. In the days after October 31, parents were challenged to upload their home videos and Kimmel’s team selected the most entertaining ones to make this year’s video, which you can watch below:

Kanye West & Jimmy Kimmel Kiss And Make-Up On 'Live'


Kanye West Jimmy Kimmel

Kanye West was Wednesday's (9 Oct.) big name guest for Jimmy Kimmel Live; a booking that was made all the more interesting given the recent fallout between the two over a parody Jimmy did of a Kanye interview that took place last month. The resulting chat was pretty funny, if not a little awkward at times, as Kanye's mask fell off long enough to reveal a real human person during his engaging talk with the late night chat host (ABC).

Kanye and Kimmel seem to have put their differences to one side

"The main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse," Kimmel told Kanye in reference to the sketch, which features children acting out his interview with BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe. Kimmel also admitted that he took some of Kanye's quotes out of context for comedic effect, stating that he only did the skit because "I think it's funny."

Kanye West And Jimmy Kimmel To Smoothe Out Their Issues With JKL Interview


Kanye West Jimmy Kimmel

After keeping a relatively low profile following the birth of daughter North, Kanye West is active and working again, most recently with a scheduled appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, October 9th. But there’s an additional layer to this: it will be the first time the talk show host sits down with the rapper, after West went on a Twitter rampage against him recently.

West has been quite the family man lately.

Can’t you just feel the tension in the air? For those in need of a brief rundown of the feud, Kanye West recently did an interview with BBC Radio 1. In it, he declared himself the “biggest rock star in the world.” Kimmel, naturally, took the golden parody opportunity and had kids recreate the controversial video, at which point West took to Twitter to pen the following rant.

Tonight, It's All About Kanye West Vs Jimmy Kimmel. Don't Miss It.


Kanye West Jimmy Kimmel

Kanye West's behavior has been rather odd this year. Not Amanda Bynes odd, just odd. He's been going after photographers, boasting about his talent and going off on crazy tangents during interviews - this despite his album Yeezus gaining critical acclaim and Kanye becoming a father for the first time.

Kanye WestKanye West, On The Catwalk

It appeared to come to a head when Kanye sat down for a chat with Radio 1's Zane Lowe last month. It was less of an interview, and more of a rapper talking for an hour about anything but his music.

"I've got a polyp on my vocal cord," a raspy, bearded Hamm, 42, told the host, "It sounds worse than it is, although it doesn't sound as bad as how the National Enquirer reported it, which was that I was coughing up blood and probably have cancer.

Jimmy Kimmel, late night host, prankster, part of the team behind “Channing All Over Your Tatum” is at it again.

Vampire Weekend Record Their Own Take On Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' [Listen]


Vampire Weekend Robin Thicke Pharrell Williams T.I Jimmy Kimmel Queens Of The Stone Age Foals

Just when we were all starting to get sick of 'Blurred Lines,' Robin Thicke's mega-hit featuring Pharrell Williams and T.I., New York rockers Vampire Weekend were on hand earlier this week to give us all another reason to care about the track once again as they gave their own take on the track. The performance was part of BBC Radio One's Live Lounge sessions and yes, it does feature an (attempted) rendition of T.I.'s rapped part as well.

Vampire Weekend
The group made the track their own

The laughter-inducing version, that is filled with ad-libs and the occasional cry of "dat falsetto!" whenever someone forgets a line, was recorded with glee by the 'Diane Young' rockers at the London radio studio. Hearing Ezra sing “You the hottest bitch in this place!!!” and mumble “pimpin” and “shake your rump!” in his best T.I. impression is as funny as it founds too, as the white boy indie kids break down into hysterics by the end of the track.

Well, at least it’s available to stream on iTunes– for just one week, Ciara fans will be able to stream the full album, before the record officially goes on sale – that is, becomes available for download next week, on July 8.

The rest of the singer’s week is filled with TV appearances – from a performance on Jimmy Kimmel, to an interview on Chelsea Lately and an appearance on the today show.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the singer shared her excitement over the release.

Comic Mel Brooks Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award From American Film Institute


Mel Brooks Jimmy Kimmel

Mel Brooks became the 41st recipient of the American Film Institute's Lifetime Achievement Award at Thursday (June 6) night's handing-out ceremony. Upon receiving award the director of such comic greats as Young Frankenstein and Blazing Sandler told the star-studded audience that "movies saved [his] life," following a heartfelt yet humorous video tribute.

The ceremony before the the handing over of the award to the 86-year-old was a fitting one for the comedy great, beginning with a song and dance routine featuring numbers from Brooks' The Producers, all being reenacted by Martin Short. He said after; "the word genius is used a lot in Hollywood, so I might as well call Mel one," as the ceremony went on and a range of comedy greats gave their respects to the comic, with Larry David blaming Mel for keeping him away from comedy in his aspiring years because he knew he'd never live up to it, whilst Jimmy Kimmel took paying his respects to the writer/director a little more seriously, jokingly saying, We are going to miss you so much, Mel."

Kimmel continued; "you were one of the greats. Rest in peace, my friend," with Brooks addressing Kimmel's comment as soon as he got on stage , first swearing then exclaiming "I'm not gonna die!"

Jimmy Kimmel Embarrasses Coachella 2013 Music Fans [Video]


Jimmy Kimmel

It’s been doing the rounds on the internet ever since it aired, the Jimmy Kimmel Coachella interviews video has been an absolute smash, with the talk show host making an ass out of many, um, ‘music fans’ at this year’s Coachella festival by getting them to praise bands who don’t even exist.

It’s well known that music fans would hate to admit they’ve not heard of an act who they’re led to believe everyone’s going on about, while at the same loving knowing about a band no one else does, but it’s remarkable the lengths that some of those interviewed by the Kimmel show will go to convince him that they’re really into completely fictional bands like The Chelsea Clintons, The Obesity Epidemic, and Regis & the Philbins. So many of them praise an act without missing a beat, so keen are they to seem knowledgeable – asked about The Obesity Epidemic, one fan instantly says “I just like their whole style, their whole genre.”

Our heart went out to the woman who was asked about the band Get The F*** Out Of My Pool, and who rambled on at such length despite clearly getting the sense that something was completely awry, though she answered with more conviction a question about The Chelsea Clintons, saying “they just give off good energy, you can just tell they’re doing it from a good place.” A non-existent place, in fact. See for yourself below.

Chewbacca Crashes Harrison Ford's Jimmy Kimmel Interview, And Pays For It!


Harrison Ford Jimmy Kimmel

Harrison Ford was the big star on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (April 17) and was there to discuss his latest hit movie, 42, and as far as he knew/hoped that was everything he'd be talking about. Of course, things aren't that simple on Kimmel's show and the host couldn’t help himself when it came to asking the 70-year-old actor about his most famous project, Star Wars, and more specifically the hotly anticipated reboot of the Star Wars movie franchise.

The noted Star Wars hater that he is, Ford unfortunately declined to answer Kimmel's questions about J.J. Abram's new Star Wars vision, so Kimmel proposed that he open the floor up to the audience to ask some questions. Ever the professional, the veteran star agreed to answer questions from the audience but only on the condition that no-one brings up Star Wars. Things began to get awkward as fans dressed as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia stepped up to the mic and quickly had to rethink their questions, however one audience member wasn't so quick to change the record, Harrison's furry former co-pilot of the Millenium Falcon, Chewbacca.

Morrissey Slams Jimmy Kimmel Over Duck Dynasty Segment


Morrissey Jimmy Kimmel

Morrissey’s cancellation of his appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel Live! was only going to end badly, with a highly principled artist and a chat show host desperate to get a laugh out of anything, clashing in what, really, was the most tedious of ways.

As most of you probably know by now, staunch vegetarian Morrissey dropped out of his scheduled appearance on the show after discovering that Kimmel’s other guests were the Duck Dynasty, an American family who makes products for duck hunters. This provided ammunition for Kimmel to use when the show eventually came around on Tuesday (February 26, 2013); according to Slicing Up Eyeballs, Kimmel said that he sided with the Dynasty because ‘they had guns and Morrissey didn’t’, and also mocked the singer for repeatedly “finding ways to depress us”. The show also featured a skit where the Dynasty hunted for vegetables. 

Never one to back down, Morrissey has since issue a statement on fan site True To You, writing “I was disappointed with last night's Jimmy Kimmel Show wherein our smiling host managed to ridicule depression (70% of Americans have experienced depression according to the National Institute of Mental Health). He then found time to ridicule healthy eating (the obesity epidemic in the U.S. costs $147 billion per year in medical expenditure), and he also ridiculed the notion that animals should be entitled to the possession of their own lives.”

The Show Must Go On? David Letterman Props Up Entertainment Industry During Hurricane Sandy


David Letterman Jimmy Fallon Jimmy Kimmel Stephen Colbert Jon Stewart The XX Cat Power Grimes Rufus Wainwright The National Keira Knightley Russell Crowe Will Smith

The mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg has been making sure that the city's residents were fully prepared for Hurricane Sandy, which hit New York last night. And whilst the majority of New York citizens paid heed, TV presenter David Letterman decided to pay heed instead to that age-old motto from the world of entertainment. "the show must go on!"

According to MTV, Letterman wasn't going to let a minor detail like the biggest storms to ever hit the USA stop him from filming one of his late night chat shows. He did, however, film the episode of The Late Show With David Letterman without the presence of his usual live audience. He may have been prepared to brave the elements to get the show filmed but he wasn't about to let the general public endanger themselves in the process. The same applied to Jimmy Fallon's show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. 

Other shows weren't so lucky. Jimmy Kimmel was forced to cancel one of his tapings in Brooklyn, announcing on Twitter "Though it pains us to do it, JKL from Brooklyn tonight is cancelled. I'm disappointed too, but we want you to be safe." Over at Comedy Central, however, the laughter stopped for the night. Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart both cancelled the filming for their shows.

"Where's The Love Axl?" Slash's Wife Disappointed By Axl Rose's Jimmy Kimmel Interview


Axl Rose Slash Jimmy Kimmel Guns N Roses

In distinct contrast to his normal behaviour Axl Rose was a) on time and b) giving an interview, with Jimmy Kimmel. The GUNS N' ROSES front man hasn't given a live TV interview for 20 years, but now that he has a 12 date residency at The Joint at Hard Rock in Las Vegas is more than happy to do a little promo in aid of the performances.

Perla Hudson, the wife of ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, was disappointed by the interview and quipped about it in an interview with Us Weekly. She, like many other fans, was probably hoping for a more in-depth and revealing interview, rather than the brief and amusing chat with Kimmel that ultimately barely scratched the surface of Axl's interesting life and even more interesting psyche. "I was waiting for something enlightening and all I got was promotion for a show and his evident affinity for a chili burger," Hudson said.  "Where is the love Axl? And I stayed up for this? Sex, drugs and chili dogs. Long live Axl Rose. And a Halloween tree." Fixating on his weight, she said he has "evidently [had] way too many Tommy's chili burgers!" We can't disagree, he really is looking like a bit of a porker these days, in contrast to his high cheek boned and chiselled days of the early 90s. 

Ah well, Axl turned 50 years old earlier this year, so gaining a few pounds is pretty much par for the course in middle age. In the interview he also expressed apathetic support for Obama, but that despite 'leaning' towards the Democrats, he won't be voting. A little odd given that his residency is titled "An Appetite For Democracy". Apathy, political contradictions and piling on the pounds, let's put it all down to creative licence. He's Axl Rose, he can do what he likes. The Guns N' Roses residency will begin on Wednesday 31st October 2012, with 11 futher days until November 24th of the same year.

First TV Interview In 20 Years Sees Axl Rose Back President Obama


Axl Rose Jimmy Kimmel Guns N Roses

The normally grumpy Axl Rose seemed pretty cheerful indeed as he appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, and as well he might! After all, this was the first televised interview the notorious front man of ageing rock and rollers Guns N’ Roses had given in more than 20 years. Rose was surprisingly smooth in the role as guest, and even kept his cheerful demeanour when Kimmel likened him to Santa Claus. That must be some sized dressing they’d put up for him backstage.

That said, Kimmel largely avoided the long, long list of things he could’ve asked Rose, such as, y’know, his embittered relationship with his former guitarist Slash, or his decision to reject his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction and then subsequently apologise for his no show, nor indeed what Guns N’ Roses were planning next. Kimmel might as well have just asked him “So, Axl, how are you?” and have that be that.

However, he did take the ribbing he got well, and in a moment that really did make him seem like Santa Claus, he puts Guns N’ Roses tickets under certain audience members seats, as well bringing along a burger truck and giving everyone gift certificates! Oh, and the title of this story? It’s because he told Kimmel that he “would lean Obama” in the upcoming election, though he quantified this by saying that he and most of California tend not to vote. So there you go then, Axl Rose: not quite as monstrous as we thought. See for yourself below (complete with amusing Halloween anecdote):
