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.
