Kanye West Cancels NBC Performance, Isn’t Mad at Matt Lauer

Doesn't NBC read Kanye West's Twitter? Even though he tweeted that he wouldn't be performing on the Today show after the show's sound department had the gall to interrupt him (Kanye would never do anyone like that!), Matt Lauer still said yesterday, "We look forward to Kanye's return for a special live concert on the plaza on Friday, November 26." Not so much, Kanye replied: He's got no plans to do the show, though he did make sure to tweet, "And I don't hate Matt Lauer ... We don't promote hate. That's the whole point!!! I promote love and truth!" Also, comfort, to judge from his latest tweet: "Hotel robe got me feeling like a Sheik." [Kanye West/Twitter]
