Kanye West Upset With Today Show Interview About George Bush
(Story Written by Aliyah Shahid of the New York Daily News)
Kanye West is mad about a "Today Show" interview of him apologizing for calling George W. Bush a racist.
But the show's host, Matt Lauer, isn't sorry at all for showing it.
Lauer played more of the interview with the Grammy-award winning rapper on Thursday, after West went on a Twitter rampage declaring Lauer tried to force his answers.
West was also upset the network replayed footage while he was being interviewed on Tuesday, showing the star storming onto the MTV's Video Music Awards' stage to interrupt Taylor Swift's acceptance speech last September.
"There was nothing improper about it, nothing unusual about it," Lauer said, arguing the network often plays correlating footage during the interview.
