The Human Rights Foundation is criticizing West for performing at a wedding in Kazakhstan, saying he legitimized the human rights violations of the nation's president. The rapper performed at the wedding of Nursultan Nazarbayev's grandson Saturday. The U.S.-based human rights group compared his appearance to a similar visit earlier this year by Jennifer Lopez to Turkmenistan, another country with a history of human rights violations.

West to guest on Kimmel’s show after ‘rap feud’

Los Angeles • ABC says Kanye West is appearing on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show, less than two weeks after the pair got into what Kimmel called a "rap feud."
The musician will be a guest Wednesday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the network said Tuesday.
In late September, Kimmel’s show aired a skit that mocked a West radio interview by having a child re-create it. West responded with an irate phone call to Kimmel and a series of Twitter messages that labeled the comedian out of line and unfunny.
Discussing the incident on his show last month, a smiling Kimmel said he always wanted to be in a rap feud. The talk show host is known for his parodies and pranks, including a recent staged twerking accident video that became an online sensation.
