Kanye Cancels Black Friday Performance on ‘Today’ Show
Kanye West lashed out against NBC's 'Today' show and Matt Lauer for eliciting emotional responses during an interview that aired yesterday, but fans were surprised when the host announced that West would be back to perform on the show on November 26. As expected, the hotheaded rapper has canceled the Black Friday appearance, taking to his Twitter account to rant about why he won't be gracing the peacock network anytime soon.
"I'm not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons,' he wrote. 'I'm so happy the world got to see just a small piece of 'the set up.' I blatantly said I'm not performing on a tweet and to everyone around me and the next day they still announced a performance."
West explained that he is being made out as the villain in the situation, despite the fact that he announced he wouldn't be performing before the segment aired. 'Do you guys see what I'm saying now... this is just a small slice of the day to day bulls--- that goes on that helps to precipitate the idea that I such an a--hole....,' he continued. 'Cause when I don't perform oh noooow I'm the one that's crazy or a jerk! If I hadn't tweeted about how they set me up at the show they would have never played the extra footage that displayed how disrespectful...'
The Chi-town native wrapped up his diatribe by claiming that there are no hard feelings towards Matt Lauer in spite of his playing past footage under Kanye while he tried to speak. "I don't hate Matt Lauer...," he said. "All positive energy ... all smiles. Much love to Matt and the whole Today Show. I accept ya'll future apology in advance LOL!"
