Kanye West Vents Over ‘Today’ Interview

Kanye West

Kanye West’s battle with the media continues. After his pre-taped interview with “Today” show host Matt Lauer turned sour yesterday, the hurt rapper took to Twitter to express his anger and frustration.

“I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist,” wrote Kanye, who was speaking when producers started playing a clip of him interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it!” he said. “HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT.”

The interview and past experiences have caused him to trust others less. “I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused,” expressed an aching Kanye. “I don’t trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore. I can’t be everything to everybody anymore.”

Read his series of passionate tweets below.

Man I’m heading to Abu Dhabi finna go to Ferrari Land YESSSS!!!

….but before I take off let me tell you how they did me at the Today show…

I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist….

While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the “MTV” under me with audio!!!!!!!

I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it!

HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT.

I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused

I don’t trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore. I can’t be everything to everybody anymore.

I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ!

I can’t take anymore advice!!! I create, I’m creative, I have a good heart, everyone will see and understand one day.

Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone!

Very judged very scrutinized very criticized! I want everyone to know I have lows all the time but I make it through them!

Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that shit was cool to play the “MTV” clip while I was speaking about Bush?

He played clips of Bush and asked me to look at his face while I was trying to talk to him. I wish Michael Jackson had twitter!!!!!!

Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a fucking set up!!!!

This is rock and roll life my people… you can’t stop the truth you can’t stop the music and I have to be strong or “they” win!!!!

Sometimes it’s not simple, some days it’s not easy… I just want to create. I love you guys, thanks for the support!

    I dont blame kanye. Many of these interviewers have a hidden agenda and once you say something they dont agree with they scrutinize you until u finally notice that there doing it cause of something u said in the past. That whole Bush doesnt care about black people rant happened years ago, they need to let it go. Even though at the time it seemed like what Kanye said was true we dont know what bush’s intentions were to help those people of Hurricane Katrina so even if you have those thoughts u shouldnt put it out there on national television. But it was probobly the most brave thing ive ever heard a celebrity do in my life, Mike Myers facial reaction was priceless. I will always respect Kanye as an artist cause he is changing the game and what music is supposed to be like. When your pushing boundries your bound to be taken down by the media u just gotta know how to handle it.

    yea the media only wants the bad cuz that’s what brings the cash… my suggestion to Kanye is that he just avoids all that and keep it movin. I’m disappointed to hear the Today Show was so cynical

    @lilzij no one on here is a dick rider, just because some one loves an artist’s music doesn’t mean there a dick rider. I don’t call you a hater for not liking his current music( But seriously did you say kanye west’s current music was shitty, check rolling stones out MBDTF got a 5 star review. But hey everyone is entitled to there own opinion even pedophiles and terrosits #KANYESHRUG).

    Kanye West’s reactions during this interview are classic NPD narcissistic personality disorder and Borderline Personality disorder is there in his rant on Twitter. The man will never grow up he is 12 emotionally and stuck there permanently. His duet with Beyonce I Gotta Big Ego perfectly depicts how triifiling he is as an artist and as a man. It’s amazing how no good low liifes rise to the top. Manipulators and people are victims to his pathology. That goes for impressionable minds that have him as a role model. Pathetic!

    @Karen,

    This is a very unempathetic response not only to Kanye but to those of us who struggle with borderline personality disorder in our own lives. I have wondered if Kanye might be borderline, but I find it offensive that you call him (and all borderlines, by association) pathetic.
