kanye west perform getty Kanye West's 'Today' Show rant: Matt Lauer 'tried to force my answers'In today’s earth-shattering, heart-stopping news… Kanye West is mad about something. We’ll give you a moment to pick your jaws up off the floor before we continue.

West has famously taken on the former President of the United States for being racist, and a 19-year-old girl for not being Beyonce. This time, he’s found some middle ground. His latest target is Matt Lauer and the “Today” show.

According to West, he stopped by the “Today” show to apologize for his 2005 comments about President Bush’s insufficient response to Hurricane Katrina. Recently the incident, where West publicly stated, “George Bush does not care about black people,” has made the news again, as Bush calls it the worst moment of his presidency in his new memoir, “Decision Points.”

]]>a series of angry tweets: “Man I’m heading to Abu Dhabi finna go to Ferrari Land YESSSS!!! ….but before I take off let me tell you how they did me at the Today show… 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!!!!!!!” Oh man, not The MTV. That’s what our grandmother calls it, too. She also talks about The Twitter, The Glee Show, and The Floppy-Haired Boy With The Nice Voice. (That last one is Justin Bieber.) But we digress. Kanye’s not finished: “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.” This is when he launches into what we’re sure will one day be the lyrics to a hit single. “I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ! Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone!” West makes it sound like Matt Lauer played some serious Bad Cop. “Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that sh** 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!!!!!!” Um… yeah. We don’t understand his leap on that last part, either, but West seems to believe that Jackson could have solved the whole Lauer problem in 140 characters. “Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a f***ing set up!!!!” The interview hasn’t aired yet, but we’re definitely going to be DVRing it when it does, if only to see Matt Lauer’s “brutal” interrogation tactics. We’re sure the “Today” show thanks West for his Twitter rant. Ratings gold.
