Music News: Kanye West Will Not Perform on The Today Show


Kanye West has officially canceled his scheduled performance on NBC’s “The Today Show” shortly after his interview with Matt Lauer.

He tweeted the following…

“I’m not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons.” “I’m so happy the world got to see just a small piece of ‘the set up.’…I blatantly said I’m not performing on a tweet and to everyone around me and the next day they still announced a performance….Do you guys see what I’m saying now?”

It wasn’t a surprise that West backed out of the performance after airing his concerns with Lauer’s interviewing techniques.

“I don’t hate Matt Lauer,” he added on Twitter today. “We don’t promote hate. That’s the whole point!!! I promote love and truth!…All positive energy … all smiles. Much love to Matt and the whole Today Show. I accept ya’ll future apology in advance LOL!”

Kanye West Tweets His Frustration Over Matt Lauer ‘Today Show’ Interview

Kanye West is fighting mad, but this time it’s over “how they did [him] at the Today Show,” he chose his Twitter account to fight back.West sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer to, as he tweeted last night,“express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist.” But things didn’t quite go as West would have liked.

Kanye was referring to the flak he received after the talked-about-to-death 2009 MTV VMAs Taylor Swift interruption—something, according to West, the Today Show decided to dredge up visually while he was speaking. (His full interview has yet to air on the morning program.)

“While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the ‘MTV’ under me with audio!!!!!!!” Kanye tweeted. He then added, “I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it!”

West’s rants spanned through a further series of tweets, which found him alluding to the fact that Matt Lauer attempted to stage the G.O.O.D. Friday MC’s reactions to the questions. “He played clips of Bush and asked me to look at his face while I was trying to talk to him,” he wrote.

Here’s more:

“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.”

In the end, he capped things by cryptically tweeting, “Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone!”

Here’s a small portion of Kanye’s Today Show sitdown, which was aired when Lauer spoke to George Bush.

We’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out when Yeezy’s full Today Show interview runs. And when it does, if things went down as West says, one thing’s for sure—it might be someone else other than Kanye, for a change, who’s under scrutiny.

“Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that shit was cool to play the ‘MTV’ clip while I was speaking about Bush?” West tweeted toward the end of his rant. “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 saw a bit of the interview. He was really upset when they played back the video of him snatching Taylor Swift’s award in the middle of him trying to answer the question Matt Lauer asked about the whole incident.”

Watch It!: Katy Perry to perform on “Saturday Night Live”


“Saturday Night Live” will welcome back a former cast regular as host of its season premiere and has confirmed the hiring of four new featured players in its cast.

“Parks and Recreation” star Amy Poehler will host the Sept. 25 premiere. She was a member of the cast for eight years and has made several return appearances since leaving for “Parks and Rec,” but the premiere will be her first turn as host of the show.

The musical guest will be Katy Perry, who’s making her “SNL” debut. We’re also sort of hoping her fiance, Russell Brand, might make a cameo.

NBC has also confirmed the previously reported additions of four new featured players to the cast: Vanessa Bayer, Paul Brittain, Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah. They represent the biggest infusion of new cast members to the show since 2001, when Poehler and Seth Meyers were among the newcomers.

“SNL” will also air new shows on Oct. 2 and Oct. 9. “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston has said he’s hosting the Oct. 2 episode, but NBC hasn’t officially named the hosts for those weeks. There were also talks that Lindsay Lohan will host “SNL” as well.

Historically, Lohan has been on “SNL” twice before. Once in May 2004 and another in April 2006 when she also poked fun at her bad behavior in a skit.

Lohan, who will complete her rehab stint in early November if everything goes smoothly, is also being pursued by TV Shows for her first post-jail interview. NBC’s “Today” reportedly is the frontrunner although her mother Dina Lohan said that “no final decision has been made”.

“SNL” spokeswoman refused to confirm whether Lohan is a lock, saying “We never comment on upcoming hosts until they’re announced.”

“SNL” repeated the Betty White episode this weekend with musical guest Jay-Z. White won an Emmy for her splendid work on that episode.

Just In: Michael Jackson Memorial A Special Event on TV!

Television networks planning Jackson coverage…

NBC executives changed their minds Sunday and decided to join other networks that will televise Michael Jackson‘s memorial service live this week.

NBC joins ABC, CNN, MSNBC and E! Entertainment in offering the ceremony live. It’s set for 10 a.m. PDT (1700 GMT) Tuesday at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

NBC had initially planned only a one-hour prime-time special on Tuesday night, but said Sunday it would also cover the event live. It was not immediately clear who would anchor.

Charles Gibson will anchor coverage for ABC, which is setting aside its typical daytime programming.

CBS anchor Katie Couric will be at the Staples Center, although the network had not yet said whether it was offering live coverage of the memorial.

CNN has seen its ratings soar with the Jackson story, and it will show the memorial on the main network and HLN (formerly Headline News). CNN International will air the ceremony to the rest of the world. Anderson Cooper, Larry King and Don Lemon are the anchors for CNN coverage. Robin Meade, A.J. Hammer and Jane Velez-Mitchell will anchor at HLN. CNN en Espanol also will cover it.

Chris Jansing will anchor live coverage of the memorial on MSNBC. Fox News Channel hadn’t announced its plans.

E! Entertainment will cover the ceremony on its television network and its Web site.
