Kanye West Cancels 'Today Show' Concert

Kanye West has canceled his Nov. 26 Today Show concert in the wake of his “torturous” interview with Matt Lauer.

“I’m not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons,” Kanye tweeted. “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.”

Kanye continued, “Do you guys see what I’m saying now? This is just a small slice of the day to day bull—- that goes on to help precipitate the idea that I’m an an ass—- cause when I don’t perform oh noooow I’m the one that’s crazy or a jerk!”

“All positive energy … all smiles,” he ended. “Much love to Matt and the whole Today Show. I accept ya’ll future apology in advance LOL!”

  • LoriLori

    Matt Lauer is a snake in the grass, yes KW is a rude narcistic jerk but it’s OVER
    he didn’t assault anyone, Wilson insulted the current President and I don’t see ML raking him over
    FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO HATE,

  • Metaspherz

    Now maybe Today can book somebody with REAL talent. Why his fans indulge his self-important rants I’ll never know….

  • Ms. Mary

    K West is a racist. He hates white people
    and Asians too.

    I hope karma gets his bigot azzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • AMENSISTER

  • Gar

    Kanye’s the biggest drama queen. At least he’s entertaining that way. Matt Lauer isn’t losing any sleep over this crap.

  • Leni

    Matt Lauer is a total jerk. Why is he still on TV? He did that to Tom Cruz and Brittney Spears too. I am not a Kanye fan but it’s understandable when it comes to that Matt Lauer.

  • Al

    Isn’t this the guy who said he was as big as Jesus? LOL nobody should take him seriously! Glad ML put him in his place!

  • T Pain

    Thank you Kanye for sparing us your performance..i think America has had enough of you

  • Ugh, please.

    “This is just a small slice of the day to day bull—- that goes on to help precipitate the idea that I’m an an ass—-”

    The only person and/or thing that helps precipitate the idea he’s and ass___ is himself. He’s an egotistical idiot!

    As someone so brilliantly asked, can’t he just crawl in hole?

    Please go away Kanye. A vast majority of the world is over you and your childish BS.

  • James

    Runaway is the best video I’ve seen all year. Cinematic genius.

  • emma

    @Ms. Mary: WHAT THE F****???? YOU are the only one that sounds racist!

  • Lucas

    Judging ANYONE siding with Colossal Douchebag Matt Lauer who cheated on his wife of 12 years and is generally just a giant bag of douche.

    If Kanye’s bravado and swag upsets backwards Middle Americans and little Taylor Swift fans, more power to him.

    TEAMKANYE.

    <3 kanye so much. he’s just a mamma’s boy [r.i.p] :(
    people need to leave him alone, srsly. he is so talented.

    his album is FLAWLESS. fantastic. best album of this year imo.
    he should make instrumental versions of all the tracks.
    all of the lights is my favorite…amazing, amazing.

  • Jokergurl

    Chicken bawk, bawk, bawk, it’s Matt Lauer, it’s not like he’s being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly or Larry King, sheesh.

  • Chanel

    I cant stand Kanye. I think he hasnt been right since the death of his
    mother.
    Kanye West is:
    RUDE- He interrupted Taylor Swift during her speech, So RUDE.
    ARROGANT- What he said yesterday on the Today Show was so
    arrogant & he was so off, all Matt Lauer did was asked him a
    question thats all, just a simple question & Kanye couldnt
    take it, & hes looking for an apology from everyone from
    Today Show, PLEASE!
    AN IDIOT
    CHILDISH
    SELFISH
    PIGHEADED
    SELFCENTERED
    JACKASS- I agree with Obama, when he called him a Jackass.
    RACIST- What you said that Beyonce should have won instead of Taylor
    Swift, I mean what did Taylor do to you for that comment, &, where
    in the Hell did you come from, you just showed up on stage with a mic
    & started to make that RACIST COMMENT.
    COCKY
    HAS NO BRAIN AT ALL
    STUPID
    I think that all of the R&B/ Hip Hop stations should stop playing
    his music & every music store & retail store should pull
    his music off the shelfs for good, cause who wants to support him
    after that,. Because I def. know that I will not be supporting this
    arrogant individual anymore at all. Kanye,
    Get A Life & PLEASE GET OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT BECAUSE
    NO ONE DOESNT WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE AND I AM SO
    GLAD THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ON THE TODAY SHOW ON BLACK
    FRIDAY BECAUSE WE DO NOT NEED YOU TO RUIN OUR HOLIDAY!
    Wont you do us all a favor & KILL YOURSELF, I DONT CARE
    HOW YOU KILL YOURSELF BUT JUST DO IT, PLEASE!

  • RC

    lol kanye crack me up

  • LadyB

    This guy needs to seek therapy.

  • Jase

    Are these spam hate comments from Republicans or what?

    Team KANYE. But I will say, dude shut up and make music even if you’re feeling cornered. For your own sake.

  • jodi

    this guy needs to just go back to where he came from or just die already hes nothing but a low life N SC-MBAG

  • Lisa2

    Isn’t it funny how he can dish it out, but when he gets called on it, then he blames everyone else? I only wish Matt could have said more to him and stood up to him when he was acting like he was being picked on. He says nasty things all the time and yet no one will actually stand up to him.

  • poor man

    Matt L. makes my skin crawl!

    “Look at his face, look at Bush’s poor face” WTAF???? And it was disgusting the way they turned up the music at the same time they asked him a question, how rude and unprofessional.

    They tried to play Kanye but he stood his ground. I would have been PIS.SED. Lost all respect for The Today Show, filthy and low-class manipulative Republican bullies.

  • Bell

    It’s a shame that talent went to such a horrible, rude, racist man.

    I do think he is talented and makes good music, but since I don’t appreciate him as a person, I can’t appreciate his music.
