    First Tom Cruise and now Kanye West. Matt Lauer is such a fight picker! I kid, I kid. While Kanye West has been making the apology trail with Taylor Swift and former President George W. Bush, he is embarking on a fresh battle to keep the drama high and this time, it's with Matt Lauer of Today. West has cancelled a planned performance on Black Friday in the wake of an interview he conducted with Lauer this week. West's behavior apparently caused his publicist to quit, too.

    West Tweeted last week that he would not perform on the day after Thanksgiving, and Today confirmed that it received official word of the cancellation on Friday. Apparently, West was angered when the show played a clip of him interrupting Swift in the famous VMAs incident in 2009.

    West was slotted to perform on a day when New York streets are teeming with shoppers who could veritably be reminded to purchase his new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

    Is Kanye West a brat?
