Jimmy Kimmel addressed Kanye West’s profanity-studded Twitter rant in which he went off on the late-night host in response to a bit from Jimmy Kimmel Live that poked fun at Kanye’s much-talked-about interview with BBC Radio One.

“Quick question,” Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his monologue on Thursday.

“Did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago? Just me? OK, I didn’t know if he was mad at all of us.”

Picking up the subject again about 15 minutes later, Jimmy Kimmel described the pre-rant call he got from Kanye West.

“He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly…and that was really the only choice!” Jimmy Kimmel said.

“The other choice he gave was that my life – <<Your life>>, he said, <<is going to be much better if you apologize>>. Then he started tweeting today and I don’t even know if I’ve seen some of these tweets, because they’re happening as we speak…”

Then Jimmy Kimmel started going through Kanye’s tweets (which were all in caps), starting with the one that got the ball rolling: “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years.”

The funnyman continued to parse the tweets, including the one that inquired whether Jimmy Kimmel would like it if Kanye West did a spoof about “your face or you f***ing Ben Affleck.”

“Which, by the way, was a spoof,” Jimmy Kimmel reminded everyone.

“I don’t know if he thought that was news.”

Noting the use of the hash tags “#nodisrespecttobenaffleck” and “#alldisrespecttojimmy kimmel,” Jimmy Kimmel cracked: “A lot of hash in those tags.”

“And he told me this on the phone, I swear,” he continued>

“He said, <<I am the most powerful voice in media. I am ‘Pac!>> He said <<I am ‘Pac>> a few times to me. He said, <<You’ll never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again>>.

“He really is ‘Pac,” Jimmy Kimmel said, smiling but looking a bit baffled.

“That’s right out of the Tupac playbook, isn’t it?”

“I don’t understand it, I don’t know why he’s angry again,” Jimmy Kimmel continued.

“I thought the bit was pretty innocuous. Finally I’m in a rap feud.”

“Do you have my back?” he asked side-kick Guillermo, who promised, while munching on a snack, to watch his boss’ back.

“Right now we’re at Def-Kanye Five,” Jimmy Kimmel concluded.

“Thanks, Kanye, appreciate it.”

Jimmy Kimmel promised to keep us posted and all remains quiet on the Twitter front for now.

Lindsay Lohan has just appeared in a second spoof fashion ad in as many weeks.

In a play on Saint Laurent’s high-profile new campaign starring Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love, Lindsay Lohan is seen staring seductively into the camera, wearing a glossy padded jacket.

The image first appeared on the 5thVillage Instagram feed.

The photo, in fact, is an edited shot of Lindsay Lohan modeling for the Italian clothing company, Fornarina, in fall 2010.

When the image appeared on Twitter this week, Lindsay Lohan replied: “Omg I would die! So amazing !!! I love Hedi [Slimane, Saint Laurent’s creative director] & shooting w/him!”

It is not the first time Lindsay Lohan has appeared in a spoof commercial. Last month she starred in a spoof of Louis Vuitton’s Core Values ad series.

The image, which appeared on the blog of Daniel Pianetti, showed her sat in court apparently admiring her lawyer’s LV embossed briefcase.

And like the real ads, the photo was framed by a thick white border with the brand name spelled out in the bottom right-hand corner.

While Lindsay Lohan perhaps wouldn’t fit with Louis Vuitton’s glossy image, her look certainly works for Saint Laurent – especially given this season’s rock ‘n’ roll theme.

The troubled actress even worked with the label’s creative director Hedi Slimane in 2009.

Hedi Slimane, 44, who is also a photographer, captured her in a series of provocative shots for his own portfolio, around the time her apparent weight-loss was starting to make press.

However, for his latest Saint Laurent campaign, Hedi Slimane selected subjects to complement his music-inspired project.

He opted for American musicians including Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Los Angeles-based rock artist Ariel Pink and former Sonic Youth singer and guitarist Kim Gordon.
