In 2010, West dissed the Saturday Night Live cast members on "Power." "Fuck SNL and the whole cast," West raps on the track. "Tell them Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass / More specifically, they can kiss my asshole / I'm an asshole? You niggas got jokes." West changed the lyrics to the song when he performed the selection on the program. To view the variation to "Power's" lyrics, click here.

UPDATE: Kanye West appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers today (February 25). During the interview, West discussed his Yeezus Tour coming to an end.
"I thought it went really good," West said of Yeezus Tour. "It's kind of sad when it's over because you put so much into it, so many people are excited to see it and it's fun to express something that you created."
During the interview, West spoke about the Margiela mask that he's worn throughout the Yeezus Tour.
"The mask is great," West said. "It's freeing. A place where you can express yourself to your audience without being judged, without having to live up to whatever you represent, whatever your name means or doesn't mean."
He also expanded on his passion for a variety of creative endeavors, his daughter North West and his appreciation for being interviewed.
