Kanye Performs at the Thanksgiving Parade

Introduced by his favorite 'Today' host, Kanye West performed at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade atop the New York Daily News float.
West rocked a fur jacket, gold chains and leather pants, as he sang 'Lost in the World" from his critically acclaimed album, 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.'
  Earlier this month, West announced he wouldn't be returning to the 'Today' show, after his notorious interview with Matt Lauer.

Kanye West had a Twitter meltdown yesterday surrounding a taped appearance on the 'Today' show. This morning, we got to see what all the fuss was about.

In a fairly standard interview, Matt Lauer asks West about his "George Bush doesn't care about black people" line from 2005 and the Taylor Swift-VMA incident that got cries of racism flipped on Kanye himself.

While producers ran a clip of Kanye's microphone-grabbing stunt at the 2009 VMAs, the rapper stopped talking mid-sentence.

"Yo, how am I supposed to talk if you gonna run this thing in the middle, while I'm talking?" an affronted West asks. "Please don't let that happen again, it's like ridiculous."
Lauer stood by the interview in a closing segment, saying: "It's something we do every day -- when a guest is talking about an incident or a location, we run video of that," Lauer says. "There was nothing improper about it, nothing unusual about it whatsoever."

"I'm not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons," he wrote, adding, "I blatantly said I'm not performing on a tweet and to everyone around me and the next day they still announced a performance."
