Should Kanye West Take a Break?

The Today show aired the Kanye West interview with Matt Lauer this morning, which was the subject of Kanye’s recent rant on his Twitter feed.

According to the New York Times, Kanye tweeted that he went on the show to “express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist.”

During the interview (video after the jump), he became angry when a clip of the Taylor Swift/MTV Awards incident began to play while he spoke.

For a while after the MTV Awards incident, Kanye West kept quiet. But during recent months, he’s been just about everywhere – on Saturday Night Live, at a Brooklyn bowling alley, performing on a plane, etc. New York magazine even posted a list of the top 30 things Kanye West has done just this fall.

Besides promoting his music, is it time for Kanye to step out of the spotlight for a bit? He’s scheduled to perform on the Today show on November 26.

Update: Kanye has canceled his plans for an upcoming appearance on the Today show, reports Billboard.com.
