When Jimmy Kimmel attempted to spoof Kanye West’s already Internet-famous BBC interview earlier this week on his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show, here’s how he began his monologue: “You’re not going to believe this, but he said a lot of weird stuff. He said he’s the number one rock star on the planet, whatever planet he’s on!” Studio audience laughter ensued. An incredulous groan could be heard after, “number one rock star.”

So, Jimmy, then, in 2013, who is the number one rock star on the planet? Kings of Leon? Nate Ruess from fun.? The festival-ready reincarnation of Guns N’ Roses?

“We culture,” said West in the interview’s climactic moment. “Rap is the new rock stars.”
