Kanye West: Matt Lauer Tried to Force My Answers

Kanye West has sounded off about his recent experience on Today.

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.”

Tom Cruise: I Came Across As Arrogant

Tom Cruise has publicly admitted wrong three years after his lashing out against Today show’s Matt Lauer while talking about prescription drugs. (He criticized Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants and told Matt he was glib and didn’t know about psychiatry.)

Tom said during today’s morning segment of Today, “I thought about it a lot. It was a subject matter that was important. And now it’s being debated in the public, which it should be. But looking at it, it’s not what I had intended. It came across as arrogant. That’s one of those things I could have handled better.. It’s not the person I am… I learned a lesson. I learned a really good lesson.”

Posh: We Want to Embrace American Culture

Posh Spice, otherwise known as Victoria Beckham, speaks with The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer to “clear up some misconceptions about her sometimes sour disposition, her family’s move to L.A., and her much-publicized friendship with Katie Holmes.”

On accepting American culture: “We are so excited about America. We want to embrace the culture with open arms. This is a huge move for us, for our children. You know, David takes his career very seriously. This is a big, big deal for us.”

On some people thinking she always looks too serious: “I know. It’s always about the outfit, you know? … At the end of the day there’s always a lot of press around. They select the pictures they want. They make you look the way they want you to look. It’s an image. I think there are some people that would be quite devastated should I actually smile or look pleasant, for that fact.”

On not being as famous as other couples in Los Angeles: “We have a great life. But we are relatively private, you know? And there are so many really famous people in LA. I mean, we always joke about it and say, ‘You know, you got Brad Pitt. You got Angelina Jolie. You got Tom. You got Katie. I mean, we’ll just be Victoria and David.”

On her BFF Katie Holmes: “She’s a very strong, sweet, lovely girl. She’s helped me so much with the move. She’s genuinely a nice girl. Wonderful family.”

On how frequent she cleans the toilet bowl: “Every now and then. In a pinch.”
