After the Matt Lauer interview, which went incredibly wrong,
Kanye is putting an end to the interviews for now.
If you didn't read the story or check the interview out, check it out right below this post!
Below is what Kanye had to say on Twitter:
I’ve decided to fall back a bit on interviews in order to “sell my album” I can’t come up with some magic trick to make people like me. I’ve made mistakes I’ve paid the price now it is what it is. I’m gone make this art but I’m not going to be scrutinized as a human being. No more Bush questions … no more Taylor questions… no more relationship questions…. and the music is unquestionable sooooo….. I am a creative person…. I’m not a good celebrity but I’m a great artist… I’m tired of using my celebrity to sell my art.
Man I’m heading to Abu Dhabi finna go to Ferrari Land YESSSS!!! ….but before I take off let me tell you how they did me at the Today show… I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist…. While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the “MTV” under me with audio!!!!!!! I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it! 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. Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone! Very judged very scrutinized very criticized! I want everyone to know I have lows all the time but I make it through them!
Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that shit was cool to play the “MTV” clip while I was speaking about Bush? He played clips of Bush and asked me to look at his face while I was trying to talk to him. I wish Michael Jackson had twitter!!!!!! Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a fucking set up!!!! 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!!!!
Sometimes it’s not simple, some days it’s not easy… I just want to create. I love you guys, thanks for the support!
Honestly, I didn't even know Kanye's feelings were hurt like THIS.
The crazy thing is that he doesn't need to go on a bunch of interviews to have his album sell well.
I believe that Kanye's album sales will still sky-rocket with or without the interviews.
Everyone honestly needs to leave this man alone and allow him to just do what he does best:
make amazing music.
He's already fragile as hell in my eyes.
The last thing he needs is talkshow hosts badgering him about past events.
Do we want this man to spiral back into depression?
NO. So leave his ass alone.
