Kanye -- Comparing Matt Lauer to a Child Abuser????

11/24/2010 2:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West went on another trademark rant last night -- unleashing about everything from Taylor Swift to George W. Bush ... and even took what seemed to be a serious shot at Matt Lauer.

During his concert in New York last night, Kanye brought up the "Today" show drama again (and his allegations that Lauer ran a clip from his interview with Kanye out of context) -- and made the following comment:

"Matt Lauer's not a bad guy I'm sure ... but if you are a child that's being abused by your parent ... or you are a girl being abused by your boyfriend ... the greatest win that you could ever have is for that person to hit you in public. You SEE! YOU SEE! I TOLD YOU!"

For the record -- Matt and the "Today" show insist they did NOTHING wrong.

As for Kanye, he also ranted about the infamous Taylor Swift moment at the VMAs -- saying, "If I wasn't drunk, I woulda been on stage longer."

He continued, "Taylor never came to my defense in any interview .. and rode it and rode it."

Check out the clip -- pretty crazy stuff.

I AM SO SICK OF Kanye West, HE'S LIKE A BAD COLD THAT YOU JUST CAN'T SHAKE, LIKE A TICK IN YOUR HEAD YOU JUST CAN'T GET OUT, LIKE A CACTUS TORN THAT BROKE OFF AND IS BENEATH THE SKIN, THIS IS HOW SICK I AM OF Kanye West.
WHY does he appologize to taylor swift, only to take it back and DOG her for not coming to his defense, he was the drunk who crashed the stage when what should have been a shining light in her life, and achievement that the people voted for, yet he stole her thunder, so much so that beyonce realized how wrong it was and allowed taylor to come up and finish when it was her time to win, he keeps digging a hole deeper and deeper.
IF HE WOULD ONLY shut the hell up and sign, be the artist that people who listen to him want him to be , be creative! but don't be so dam stupid and stick your foot in your mouth so much, GET over it and shut up and sing, really did that audience of people really want to hear that 10 min RANT, it was long enough to kill a buzz from two beers, get a life, go sang, sang about ya lyfe, do ya thang and sang,

What possible reason would she have to come to his defense? He's the one that started the whole thing

suck this junk    

Also, as far as Kanye's music goes, all he knows how to do is to steal other artists' rifts.
There is nothing artistical about him, not a creative bone in his body. Taylor Swift has more creativity in her little finger at the age of 20 then Kanye will ever have in his whole life.
And the worst part is, I'm not even a Taylor Swift fan , I just can recognize talent when it's there - which Swift has, and Kanye lacks.

What's worse than the low-life skum that Kanye is.... is those who buy his non-talent music... or worse, idolize or seek to be like him. LOSERS.

Kanye is speaking from the soul. It's not meant to be a "perfected script" or something that you can publish. So what if he rants? It's his concert.

I don't feel bad for Taylor Swift. Who is she? She hasn't proven half the stuff Kanye has. Country music sucks anyway. Nobody will even care about Taylor Swift in 10 yrs the way they will Kanye. Nobody goes to a party and wants to hear country music. What do you hear when you go to a party or a club? Rap music.

I don't feel bad for George Bush- it's true. He screwed up in Katrina and is the worst leader in the history of the world. He's probably racist. We should have kicked him out of office. His administration got this country in the position it is today. It was funny when Kanye said other leaders would have killed themselves. But noo...Bush comes out and writes a book and tries to make money off his presidency.

And Matt Lauer- another puppet media bobble head who will say anything for a rating. Who cares about that guy either.

Kanye tries his best to speak the truth. For that, he cannot be blamed.

What an arrogant, racist, ego driven piece of sh*t! And I can't help but notice that the only comments supporting this worthless tool are written by obviously illiterate fools. If you want anyone to support your opinion, learn how to f*cking spell!
