Kanye West Cancels Today Show Performance
Kanye West has canceled a November 26th performance on the Today show, because the Chicago emcee is in the middle of a feud with the show's host, Matt Lauer.
Kanye accused Lauer of attempting to "force his answers" and was upset when the show played archived footage of his encounters with Taylor Swift and former President George W. Bush as he attempted to answer questions.
The interview, which was shown on Thursday (November 11th), was followed up with a short segment by Lauer defending his interviewing tactics and denied doing anything "improper." “I’m not performing on the Today show for obvious reasons," Kanye West tweeted last night (November 11th). "I’m so happy the world got to see just a small piece of ‘the set up.’"
