  1. 1

    Who the fuck cares??? Wouldn't have watched this arrogant ass anyway. Here is to hoping he falls off the Thanksgiving Day parade float and gets suffocated by one of the huge balloons!

  2. 2

    Matt Lauer did "force" an apology from Kanye, but that still doesn't justify Kanye being such a d-bag about it. Honestly, he's psychologically unbalanced.

  3. 3

    Grow Up & shut-up Kanye!
    You are delusional!!

  4. 4

    I don't think it's logical for him to expect the Today Show to follow his tweets. That's now how you communicate in business.

  5. 5

    oh wow. he REALLY shoed them! lol. GET OVER YOURSELF KANYE

  6. 6

    I saw the whole interview from Matt Lauer. Kanye is full of crap.

  7. 7

    I watched the interview with Matt Lauer yesterday and Kanye is full of crap!!! He didn't do ANYTHING that Kanye said he did. When they were talking about Taylor they showed the snippet with Taylor. They didn't show it while they were talking about his comments to Bush. I think Mr. West needs to get a grip on reality and GROW UP!!! He's nothing but a spoiled baby who throws a tantrum when things don't go his way..

  8. 8

    Kanye West an Asshole? Noo.. He's just an amazing "artist" and a musical "genius". He's the most talented black man since Martin Luther King, with the "artistic" chops of Beethoven and Wagner. We, I mean we, the little people, should be blessed that we have such an "amazing" musical god among us. Thanks Kanye, I think we're ready to hear some of your awesome auto-tuned vocal styling. So talented…. So talented. Please tweet more, it makes us feel so much more smarter and stuff.

    who gives a fuk ’bout thiz wannabee asshole!!! Good tht he aint performin @ the today show, ppl might start booing or might not come cuz it will just be a waste of time!!! He's an arrogant asshole tht likes 2 tlk lots of shit! Matt didnt do anything to make him act like a jackass again!!! Screw u Kanye, u primmadonna L0$3R!!!

  10. 10

    Who does he think he is? Oh, wait, HE'S KANYE!!
    He is so damn entertaining gets all diva like just because the today show presented things that caused an up roar of what he did.. and they're doing the same thing, but GOD forbid that it's being done to him.. he needs to learn to stop being a hypocrite and take the punches like the ones he gives to every person that puts him on the spot.. this is part of the job he took on.. if he doesn't want to get all this diva attention then quit or shut his mouth.. freedom of speech does come at a price..so if you're willing to put it out there then there is bound to be others to put up to the test.. this is the result of his behavior, learn to live with it..grr.. ignorance is a bliss!!

  11. 11

    Big ups to Ye for not being media bullied! Enough is enough leave the man alone…

    Cake Much?



  12. 12

    firstly, he is an arrogant F**K isn't he?

    second…he is in serious need of medication and therapy…he's got PROBLEMS.

    crazy little bastard isn't he?

  13. 13

    He's coming unglued! Kanye needs to take a step back and get some perspective. Some of this sh** doesnt matter. He needs some gratitude in his heart and stop wasting his energy on all this negativity.
    He is a talented mf-er tho. He needs to feed his soul more and ego less…

  14. 14

    Kanye is a Koward

  15. Merab says – reply to this


    OK..Kanye is a douche.We already knew that..But Matt Lauer put words ("sorry") in his mouth. It´s not up to an interviewer to do that…and more: Lauer passed his judgement ( about "mistakes you have to learn" and stuff ) …wtf? who are you, Lauer, to play authority ?

  16. 16

    Kayne is a little fucking bitch!

    'ye LOL At least you didn't call him "bb".

  19. open says – reply to this


    Good riddance!

  20. 20

    He hasn't been the same since his mama died (she micro-managed his career). No matter how hard he tries he just keeps putting his foot in his mouth- saying and acting out outrageous diatribes that only keep embarrassing him.
    Put your energy into your work-zip the pie hole…your little movie was artsy, you can entertain; have the entertainment be you performing -not the bad drama from after you have made an ass of yourself (for running your mouth).

  21. 21

    Kanye West is an egotistical loser. Matt Lauer is an intelligent news caster and Kanye isn't smart enough to keep up. I so knew Kanye was going to back out of the TODAY concert….totally predictable

  22. 22

    kanye needs to grow up and get over himself. does he not realise that so many other celebs and presidents have survived the big mean matt lauer? has he never been interviewed before..? this is what the media does. how did he not know that going in? moron.

  23. 23

    I don't "hate" many people, but this guy is the biggest egotistical douche on the planet…seriously, how can anybody buy any of his music?!!

  24. 24

    he is the biggest egotistical arrogant asshole on planet earth. he thinks he is gods gift to music, let alone human beings. his music SUCKS and i CANT stand him, he is soo annoying. He claims hes all about "love and truth" he needs to be all about "the world doesnt owe your sorry ass anything so stfu and grow up". he is fucking crazy!

  25. 25

    i gotta get my background straight, which one of them is on anabolic steroids?

  26. 26

    can people stop buying his albums so we don't have to hear about him..

  27. 27

    Gee, I wonder how the Today Show can possibly survive Kenye canceling out. Like who the heck cares?

  28. 28

    I agree with Kanye.. Lauer definitely put him on the spot, it was so awkward to watch. Lauer's "we look forward to having Kanye back to perform" was forced and fake

  29. 29

    The posterboy for stupid and "dont let this happen to you." The sooner his career tanks (thanks to him) the sooner we can stop seeing and reading about him. Acting like a preschooler.

  30. 30

    Re: Merab – I completely agree with you Merab about Lauer. He seems to be very pro-Bush Republican and crossed journalistic lines by putting (almost forcing) words into Kanye's mouth. I really feel for Kanye though and my heart goes out to him. Seeing him on the Today Show and his general behavior esp post his mom's passing screams cried for attention and love. He looks like he has a huge weight on his shoulders and can use therapy and major R&R. He is supremely talented and a real good-hearted man. His music has somehow touched us all positively and the least we can do is add to his pressures. Its people's judgment that is so disgusting and destructive.

  31. 31

    Kanye is a DIC* and I'm glad Matt called his ass out!! More people need to stand up to these pricks who think they can do what they want when they want!! Just because you have $$ doesnt give you the right to be a prejudice a**hole then when someone turns around and stands up to you it gets switched around that their in the wrong..save it!! Your a jerk & deserve all the backlash you have & will continue to receive for all the shitty decisions that you have ever made!!!

  32. 32

    Kanye is an ass just disappear already, alone with jayz, beyonce, rhianna and that bieber kid.

  33. 33

    Re: BodyCake.com – so sad that people like u look up to a fool like kanye. lol

  34. 34

    This guy is the BIGGEST joke around! Matt treated him NO different than the other guests that come on that show, Kayne is just full of himself, I'm glad the idiot isn't perfoming on the Today show, I dam sure wouldn't have watched anyway. Who supports this moron, just black ppl? And ofcourse the likes of kim k

  35. 35

    truly one of the dumbest most naive tools on the planet. his level of self importance, narcissism and insecurity knows no bounds. what ever happened to him as a child will never change not that he has money. he will live is a ridiculous bubble of losers who will tell him hes right, and thats just what a good narcissist needs. too bad, cause he actually has some talent and could do good things in this world. but it wont happen…

  36. 36

    Re: samdavid – i dont think any of those things would help him. He needs to be admitted to the psych ward.

  37. 37

    Re: jockatl – agree, he is gonna wend up like mel, first the president comment, the taylor swift incident, naked pics now this.

  38. 38

    Re: emilyyo – kanye is fake too so it goes along with the territory.

  39. 39

    and we're supposed to be surprised that Kanye's an emotional guy?

  40. 40

    I think his anger, paranoia and dilusion stems from being in the closet, honest to god.

  41. 41

    Kanye West is delusional. And he obviously doesn't watch "The Today Show" or he would know that they did nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, all shows air video of the topic being discussed - it is, after all, television. Television is a technology of pictures, Kanye, or don't you get that? Geez.

  42. 42

    This guy has obvious clinical mental issues.

  43. 43

    Kanye clearly lives in his own little world. He simply cannot accept that he made a mistake. George Bush was obviously a horrible president, but he ABSOLUTELY deserves an apology for being called racist, a statement that was never even implied. Kanye may have "apologized" to Taylor Swift (after months of backlash) but it seemed insincere because it was cohesive with his comeback.
    It's funny how a man so belligerent and rude can actually expect others to sympathize with him over something that many celebrities before him had to endure, without complaints. He wasn't treated any differently than any of the other celebrities that Matt Lauer has interviewed and seemed unwilling to accept responsibility for his actions.

  44. 44

    I never thought anything from South Park would ever come in handy…

    Weeeeeell, Kanye's a douche,
    he's a big fat douche,
    he's the biggest douche in the whole wide world,
    he's a stupid douche,
    if there ever was a douche,
    he's a douche to all the boys and girls.

    Monday he's a douche,
    on Tuesday he's a douche,
    on Wednesday to Saturday, he's a douche,
    then on Sunday, just to be different,
    he's a super, king, kameha-meha douche!

    Have you ever met Kanye West,
    he's the biggest douche in the whole wide world,
    he's a mean old douche,
    and he has stupid hair, he's a douche,
    douche, douche, douche, douche, douche, douche,

    he's a stupid douche,
    Kanye's a douche and he's
    such a dirty douche!

    Kyle's mom, is a bitch-cha!

  45. 45

    Kanye should of done a prss release because he wanted to say his own thing w/out interference from any other agenda. Matt's job is to sensationalize and make people unconfortable. Being apart of "the machine" and making millions from it why doens't Kanye know this? To the people who say Matt "forced" Kanye to apologize. THANKYOU i havn't laughed that hard in a long time. thank you really! Kanye is using Matt..Like Matt used Kanye. It makes me sad.

  46. 46

    KW is a proven asshole along with being a closet case…

  47. BCip7 says – reply to this


    Who cares?!?!
    Stop giving him attention!!!

  48. 48

    Kanye is the Kim Kardashian of the music industry….a big ass with not talent or class!

  49. 49

    Kanye continues to be a BIG LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. 50



    Kanue went on that show for the money KNOWING what hewas up against. So, Kanye, STFU!

  51. 51

    Kanye is the Kim Kardashian of the music industry……a big a$$ with no talent or class!

  52. 52

    Sorry, I would have shown up and gave the performance of a lifetime. Kanye needs to stop the tweeting!

  53. 53

    This is quite bullshit. And I don't mean this whole thing with Kanye… I mean the Today show in general, all you folks who think he's an asshole, illiterate, and every thing else you want to say about him. The thing that people need to learn from this, and Kanye is right, is that the entire media thing is a big scandal, trying to put words in his mouth, force apologies out of him and set him up. It's complete bullshit. This guy is talented, intelligent. Common, you write your own songs, you write other people's songs, you run your own company. you be in the spotlight 24/7 and then tell me what it's like. The entire interview was bullshit. They were rude to him, they tried to set him up and make him look like a jerk, and an asshole.

  54. 54

    To those who say Kanye was illiterate, really? Is it because you're white and he's black? Are you being exactly like Matt Lauer and George Bush? Illiterate is a southern man who makes no fucking sense, yet thinks he can run a country. He states that Mr. West accusing him of being racist was the worst part of his presidency? What about all those soldiers he sent into Iraq and the Middle East? They died for what… for him to get his fucking oil? What about 9/11? What about the suffering and poor in the country he attempted, yet failed miserably to run. George Bush is an illiterate, racist idiot.

  55. 55

    I believe that Kanye sat through that interview and put up with the bullshit wonderfully. He tried to pose his questions so that he doesn't get tagged as an asshole. He is far from illiterate… because he is a rapper, and because he is African American means nothing. HE WRITES SONGS PEOPLE. Therefore, he needs to understand the meaning of words, be able to express his opinions, feelings and belief with WORDS, and he makes them flow, rhyme, and produces masterpieces. That takes a lot of talent, work and pressure. What does George Bush do?… pretty put a country into the biggest devastation since the Depression. Artisits such as Kanye, even Mr. Jay-Z, Beyonce, and yes, even Taylor Swift, have more influence on a country, let alone the world than George Bush has, or ever will and that's what he should be ashamed about.

  56. 56

    I used to be a Taylor Swift fan and was Team Taylor, and I mean props to her because what she does takes a lot of effort and hard work and does it greatly… but, sorry Taylor, and every body else, Kanye is a lot smarter, talented and a good person than the media, The Today Show, and the people give him credit for. He does not only have knowledge about the music he puts out there, but he has the business knowledge, fuck, he left for a year to be an intern for major fashion companies. He understands life, and he's been through a lot. Know what you're talking about before you go and try to put someone down. Hell, what doesn't kill ya, makes ya stronger and all the power and props to Kanye for canceling this show. If I was in his position, I'd do the same.

  57. 57

    Kanye is just being his own being. If any of you took the time to watch his film Runaway, you'd understand that he is somebody that has talent, is trying to be his own person and get out of what is expected of him. He has opinions, he has his own beliefs, his own thoughts. As people, that's what we're suppose to be like. In his video, while the Phoenix and himself view the parade with Michael Jackson, it represents how the media, and society makes you keep your thoughts and beliefs to yourself. The little boy in the video goes from being himself, much like little kids are, and expressing themselves, to being put into society and having to follow certain expectations. Kanye doesn't want to do that, and that's how other people should be. And this is exactly how it is, everyone is shut into their own little minds, following the expectations of society, and so when he comes up with his own opinion, he is shunned. It's bullshit. Be yourself.

  58. 58

    And as for Matt Lauer, watch the interview on here where it shows the interview with George Bush and then with Kanye. Matt Lauer should be considered a racist himself. He clearly interviews Kanye and Bush differently. He is so sympathetic towards Bush, he's white. SO WHAT. He's a fucking moron. When it comes to Kanye, does Matt think he's more intelligent than Kanye or something? Is it because Kanye is an artist and black and Matt's simply a news anchor? Sorry Matt I don't see much out of that career, compared to Kanye. If you wanna say different, watch the two interviews. It's clearly evident.

  59. 59

    The media may have a tendancy to manipulate and what-not but clearly Kanye has proven how irrational he truly is, the media just helped to expose this. He's a smart and intelligent guy and probably does mean well, he just doesn't act smart and has a horrible case of word vomit. Best thing for him to do is to just stop blurting out his opinions and views every freakin chance he gets. It gets old. Plus side of all this he does: he gets the attention he probably asks for to begin with.

  60. 60

    Good for Kanye. That interview was manipulated from start to finished. It reeked of bullshit and Kanye is calling shit on it.

    Kanye is trying very hard to come from a good place with all the crap being thrown his way. I hope he can learn to ignore it (almost impossible to do though) and stays on his path. He's a great artist and that's his gift to us. He is gifted, anyone who argues that has an agenda.

  61. 61

    kanye west is the most powerful man in the world and if you dont see that go fuck yourself you're obviously not cool

  62. 62

    Re: Team Fart – lmao

  63. 63

    I don't think Matt put any words in Kanye's mouth. He maybe supplied an answer but gave him plenty of time to come up with his own answer. Kanye said he was tring to find the perfect words in the interview. I think he is an arrogant ass that needs to get over himself. I think some of the things Matt said people called Kanye is true. He is a back slide in civil rights.

  64. 64

    Most black guys are good looking but this neegger must've been dropped of a cliff. DAMN, he IS UGLY.
    Not just ugly but stupid. ADD stupid.
    Somebody stop his pain and hung him on a tree already!

  65. 65

    Grow up Kayne.

  66. 66

    Re: gavmish – Hahahahahahahahahahaha …. you are a complete and utter idiot! His music touched us all???!! HAhahahahahahahaha … this douche needs to touch the grill of a semi-truck as it runs him down, period.

  67. 67

    Kanye and Sarah Palin should team up in their bashing of the "lame stream media!"

  68. 68

    two peas in a pod, i'd say. two complete jerk-offs.

  69. 69


    perfect picture choice for this story. him looking like a total douche. he needs to chill. if he were really growing up and maturing like he claims he is he'd do the performance.

  70. 70

    He is ridiculous. SUCH A PRIMMADONNA!!!

    I love him and his MUSIC SO MUCH.


  72. 72

    Ew at the comments, looks like this site been take over by Republican freaks.

    Love Kanye's diva ways.LOL at anyone siding with Matt L, the pile of douche who cheated on his wife of 12 years.

  73. 73

    Re: RdRydngHd – I totally agree. He acts all pissed that the day after he TWEETED that he was cancelling his performance, the Today Show was still promoting it. He is just showing his arrogance again, thinking that everyone is reading every single tweet of his (and he writes SO MANY). It would be unprofessional of the Today Show to consider a scheduled performance cancelled based on a TWEET! And it was unprofessional of him not to have his people actually CALL the show to cancel it

  74. 74

    Re: Brittany Kitchen – While I agree with most of the things you said… illiterate means that someone can't read. Maybe you mean ignorant? Bush is ignorant for sure, but I think it's pretty dumb to think that he can't read. LOL. And obviously Kanye can read too.

  75. 75

    Suck it, Lauer.

  76. 76

    Man, this guy is a narcissistic asshole. Look at that ugly mouth. Perfect for sucking cock in prison where he belongs.

  77. 77

    does anyone listen to this losers music ? im sorry talk to music, rap sucks and all rappers suck big time, getting paid to talk to music and mumble some shit that rhymes what a crock of shit that is and you people pay for it

  78. 78

    This is the best news I've heard lately. Who wants to see him any place?
    He's arrogant and an ego maniac…..good riddance

  79. 79

    He is freakin' loony toons, who gives a rat's ass if he is on Today show anyfreakin' way!? What a jerk! He should just shut the f**k up!

  80. 80

    The Today Show should be thankful he cancelled. Who wants to see that asshole perform anyway?

  81. 81

    Re: HILRAY – I personally think rap has more substance than Katy Perry jiggling her whipped cream breasts talking about melting popsicles. A lot of rappers speak to people that can't relate to shit like that. I guess you aren't very open minded about music and the art of self expression, quite unfortunate.

  82. syd3 says – reply to this


    Really, Kanye, really?

  83. 83

    Kanye proves over, and over, and over, that he lacks a proper education and any class. He speaks out on issues he clearly has no grasp of, and then doesn't understand why someone with an education (Lauer) would question the stupidity. That interview was not done in any way other than what is normally done on the show. He acted like an ignorant diva. Such a loser in every way. He needs some serious help.

  84. APS says – reply to this


    Kanye has a personality disorder, is bipolar and is NOT LIKED! take your meds, shut the hell up, get a GOOD PR team, take some time off and rework your career!

    Re: Brittany Kitchen – \
    SHUT UP! no one w really cares about all that you have to say….RACE once again has nothing to do with this, nor does what political party you belong to???? KW is an asshole, read all the post, read blogs, look at his reputation in general. He opens his mouth, acts out towards people that bring all the negative to him! U get what you give……..he says things and does things and should own them! He is reminded of and then reacts like he is being attacked?????
