Kanye: ‘If Michael Jackson Had Twitter, He’d Make Matt Lauer Stop Being a Meanie’
Kanye West flipped out on Twitter last night after experiencing what he felt was unfair treatment by Matt Lauer on The Today Show. What follows is your quintessential, melodramatic #kanyerant complete with biblical references and arguments based on Michael Jackson using the Internet for anything besides watching Home Alone clips on YouTube. (Post jumped on account of long-winded-ass-ness.)
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.
I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ!
I can’t take anymore advice!!! I create, I’m creative, I have a good heart, everyone will see and understand one day.
Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone!
Very judged very scrutinized very criticized! I want everyone to know I have lows all the time but I make it through them!
Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that shit was cool to play the “MTV” clip while I was speaking about Bush?
He played clips of Bush and asked me to look at his face while I was trying to talk to him. I wish Michael Jackson had twitter!!!!!!
Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a fucking set up!!!!
This is rock and roll life my people… you can’t stop the truth you can’t stop the music and I have to be strong or “they” win!!!!
“I would say of George Bush, in my moment of frustration, I didn’t have the grounds to call him a racist,” West said in a clip that Lauer showed to Bush. “But I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that, we as human beings don’t always choose the right words.”
Reacting to the clip, Bush said: “I appreciate that. It wasn’t just Kanye West who was talking like that during Katrina. I cite him as an example.”
The former president added: “I am not a hater. I don’t hate Kanye West. I was talking about an environment in which people were willing to say things that hurt. Nobody wants to be called a racist, if in your heart you believe in equality of race.”
I’m trying to figure out the moral of this story, but all I keep coming up with is those times I said Twitter was made for 15-year-old girls to rant about their dramas, and yet I made an account anyway. I feel dirty now.
