Kanye West Cancels ‘Today’ Show Performance

Kanye and ‘Today Show’ drama continues to drag on. After headlines flourished yesterday about the interview on the ‘Today Show’ in which Kayne felt like there was an attempt to trigger his emotions when ‘Today Show’ and host Matt Lauer kept running audio of the “Taylor Swift VMA incident” under West while he was speaking. The interview aired this morning and concluded with Matt Lauer announcing that Kayne would be returning to the show on November 26 for “a special live concert on the plaza”. This triggered Kayne to reluctantly take to Twitter after declaring he would be taking a break:

“I’m not performing on the ‘Today’ show for obvious reasons,” West wrote. “I’m so happy the world got to see a small piece of ‘the set up.’ I blatantly said I’m not performing [on the show] on a tweet … and the next day they still announced a performance.

“Do you guys see what I’m saying now?” he continued. “This is just a small slice of the day-to-day bullsh– that goes on that helps to precipitate the idea that I['m] such an a–hole. Cause when I don’t perform ‘Oh Nooow I’m the one that’s crazy or a jerk.’ ”

“I don’t hate Matt Lauer … we don’t promote hate. That’s the whole point. I promote love and truth,” he wrote. “You know what? We off that! They made a mistake. They thought they could pull it but they couldn’t. That was just a small representation of a bigger media play that’s been going on since the beginning of time. All positive energy … all smiles. Much love to Matt and the whole ‘Today’ show. I accept ya’ll future apology in advance.”
