Kanye West Admits Coaching on Today Show Interview with Matt Lauer

In the latest installment of Kanye West vs. Today, the rapper has responded to Sunday’s New York Times article, which reported that West was coached for his now infamous interview with Matt Lauer. Lauer was expected to bring up his recent interview with former President George W. Bush, who called the rapper’s assertion that he doesn’t care about black people in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, “one of the most disgusting moments of [his] presidency.” West confirmed that the Times’ article about the professional preparation was on point, tweeting, “NY Times has a pretty accurate account of the way the whole Today Show thing went down. Good job guys!”
