Kanye and Matt Lauer together again at Macy's Thanksgiving Parade

This time their meeting was much less auspicious.

There was nary a mention of their recent dust up when “Today” show host Matt Lauer introduced rapper Kanye West at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Not exactly dressed for the elements in a fur vest, shiny gold top (complete with multiple gold chains) and a pair of leather pants with matching headband, West performed a brief version of the song “Lost in the World” from his critically acclaimed album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," while riding aboard the Big Apple float.

The whole thing was rather anti-climatic for anyone looking for a rematch between Lauer and West, who tweeted his displeasure over their last meeting. Honestly, we sensed more tension between R & B singer India Arie and Dora from "Dora the Explorer," who performed together this year.

By the way, while we're talking about the parade: We also didn't like the way Kermit the Frog was looking at Spiderman, and we think Spidey might want to watch his back.

    Oh haters..haha. Thats why his album will be #1. Thats a whole lot of no talent. Kanye is outspoken and people don't like it why? Because most people aren't able to express themselves the way they want to. Out loud in front of everyone and be heard. How do I know? We're all on CNN.com and Youtube and various other sites leaving comments doing what we can to be heard and/or noticed.

    GO KANYE! Say what you want dude.

    • Oh Yeah

      Oh, he has talent alright......he has a talent for putting his foot in his mouth EVERYTIME he opens it and that will be his downfall in the business world. He needs to decide whether he wants to be a successful businessman or a loud-mouth punk!

    Seriously, Kanye is a tool who pulls media stunts not because he has good ideas or because he is a passionate person but simply because it keeps him as front page news... I wish America would just ignore him so he would go away.

    • Over-rated

      I totally agree with you. He's just a loud-mouth wanna-be....he can't get attention with talent, so he goes out and makes an @ss of himself. Ughh, just go away!!
