When You've Gotta Go ...

Bathroom segment begins at 8:28

Kanye West was deep into discussion with Conan O'Brien on NBC's Late Night last year when he suddenly changed topic: "Sidebar: I have to use the bathroom really, really bad." The announcement took the host by surprise, although Conan managed to smoothly note that "It's added a sense of urgency to what you're saying, which I think is valuable." Kanye managed to hang in for a few more minutes, gamely sitting through a brief but painful rendition of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" before O'Brien finally took mercy: "I'm a good host — I'm going to get you to the bathroom right now."
