Kanye West Today Show

“What that bitch tell me to do? All I can see is me dancing with Michael Jackson in a room straight outta Tron. Oh, shit, this Matt Lauer dude’s been axing me shit the whole time. Play it cool, Kanye. Play it cool…”

Before filming his now-disastrous interview on The Today Show, Kanye West‘s people hired media expert Susan Arons whose immediate, and clearly correct, instinct was to back the hell out. Fortunately for us, Kanye West apparently drives himself to interviews. Oh, good. Page Six reports:

But on Tuesday morning, Arons was notified that West was waiting at NBC’s Rockefeller Center studio for the Lauer chat, and she rushed over at West’s request.
According to a show insider, “West shut himself in a dressing room with Susie, and could be heard rehearsing possible questions and answers. But the interview began, and it was as though he had crammed for a test and then his mind went blank.”
West grew frustrated when a clip of him interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was shown and said, “Yo, how am I supposed to talk if you’re going to run the thing in the middle while I’m talking?”
When Lauer and West took a break, West “huddled again with the media trainer because he still hadn’t found a way to express himself,” said our source. The disastrous interview aired Thursday, and Arons resigned from working with him yesterday morning.

INTERVIEWER: So, tell me a little bit about your career.
SUSAN: I, uh, I allowed Kanye West to speak on national television once.
INTERVIEWER: …. *places Japanese dagger on table* I’ll be outside.

    CRINGEWORTHY INTERVIEW that Today show one.

    So pathetic to see a wanabe gansta trying to be intellectual and careful with his words. He’s trying to please his brothers in the hood (and his manhood) while at the same time trying to please the people who were offended by him… AIN’T GONNA WORK!

    He’s had so many months to collect his thoughts and still doesn’t know what he’s trying to say.

    I’m sorry but I’m not sorry but I’m sorry but I’m.. wait I need to word this carefully.. *awkward silence*

    He’s very conflicted because he’s only apologising at all because of the outrageous reactions to some of his comments/behaiviors. He’s sorry that he’s not selling records like he used, not for what he actually said. Similar to Chris Brown. Interviews like that make a man impotent!

      No amount of coaching can overcome what is in between his ears. Be the bad boy or be the good boy, don’t try to be both it’s pathetic. And fake.

    psssst: THESE SORT OF LUNATICS JUST TRY EVERYTHING TO MASK THEIR SICKMAKING BEHAVIOUR.

  6. He should have hired the Dog Whisperer instead, fucking tool that he is. If you can get hooked in to act and talk like an idiot by the hard hitting interview skills of MATT LAUER then you should stick to shutting the fuck up and staying off the TV.

  7. yawn

    sometimes its just impossible to express yourself without coming out worse…
    wait i didnt mean that exactly… what i meant to say was….

    I’m sick of Kanye crying and snivelling and “man why they be hatin’ on me boo hoo!”

    News flash: stop acting like a horse’s ass and maybe people would be less inclined to call you one.
