Kanye West: Matt Lauer Tried to Force My Answers
The 33-year-old rapper dropped by Today and apologized for his infamous outburst during a Hurricane Katrina telethon.
Here’s what Kanye had to say on his Twitter:
“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 s— 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 f—ing set up!!!!”
