Watch Kanye West Get Emotional on the 'Today Show'

Watch Kanye West Get Emotional on the 'Today Show'

Yesterday, Kanye West  tweeted his frustration against the NBC's 'Today Show,' where he said Matt Lauer tried to force his answers during the (then unaired) segment. Lauer had asked West for a reaction to George W. Bush's statement that West's claim that he was racist during Hurricane Katrina was "one of the most disgusting moments" in his presidency.

Today the show was aired; watch after the jump as West triest to articulate his empathy with Dubya before Lauer runs a tape of Bush talking about the incident--to which West replied, "I didn't need you guys to play the tape in order to prompt my emotion to what I'm going to say," the rapper said, looking annoyed."I don't have to do TV stuff, with me. This is reality. This is the real thing going on, you know what I'm saying? I don't need all the jazz."

(There are also many awkward pauses, especially after Taylor Swift is mentioned...see how it all ends below!)
