Kanye West’s antics have driven yet another woman away… This time it’s his media trainer.
Kanye West’s media trainer quit after just three days of working with the hotheaded rapper following his disastrous interview on the “Today” show this week.
The rapper’s camp on Monday hired Susie Arons, an executive vice president at Rubenstein Communications, for help handling the interview. Collectively, they agreed West should cancel the interview, and it was called off Monday night.
But on Tuesday morning, Arons was notified that West was waiting at NBC’s Rockefeller Center studio for the Lauer chat, and she rushed over at West’s request.
According to a show insider, “West shut himself in a dressing room with Susie, and could be heard rehearsing possible questions and answers. But the interview began, and it was as though he had crammed for a test and then his mind went blank.”
West grew frustrated when a clip of him interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was shown and said, “Yo, how am I supposed to talk if you’re going to run the thing in the middle while I’m talking?”
When Lauer and West took a break, West “huddled again with the media trainer because he still hadn’t found a way to express himself,” said our source. The disastrous interview aired Thursday, and Arons resigned from working with him yesterday morning.
Meanwhile, West, who attacked Lauer on Twitter after the interview, claiming he “forced his answers,” canceled his upcoming concert on “Today,” which had been scheduled for the day after Thanksgiving.
SMH… Wonder when Kanye’s NEXT interview will be now?
