Kanye West's Temper Flares Yet Again

Big surprise on the entertainment front from MTV.com – Kanye West is upset about something. The love-him-or-hate-him hip-hop superstar appeared on Matt Lauer’s Today Show on MTV following the success of his recent endeavors. During the interview, the conversation turned to West’s outburst during a Hurricane Katrina charity event in which he stated that George W. Bush did not “care about black people.” Kanye went on to speak about how he found the situation ironic as he was later criticized as a racist for his outburst during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs.

When the Today Show aired a clip of the incident while he was speaking, Kanye became upset and asked for it to be turned off. After the interview, West’s temper really flared and he fired tons of tumultuous (and maybe even a little paranoia twinged) tweets, including: “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!”

Matt Lauer has defended himself, reminding Kanye and his followers that airing clips of events that are being discussed is common practice on the Today Show and other television shows.

Despite his rants, Kanye does, however, intend to continue to be a performer. He will give a concert on Thanksgiving for the Macy’s Day Parade and return to the Today Show to perform on November 26th.
