Kanye West cries during emotional BBC Radio interview
The rapper broke down when talking about a British professor of fashion design who had passed away
Kanye West had a very emotional interview on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show yesterday evening (26th February), where he was moved to tears when speaking about the late British professor of fashion design Louise Wilson.
He said: “I went to Louise Wilson’s memorial, the greatest fashion instructor of all time. Louise Wilson was the baddest professor of all time of any fashion school even, notorious for not letting people stop at a 7 or an 8, pushing people to a 12.
“I didn’t know we were going to lose her”, West continued before dissolving into tears.
“That’s never happened to me in an interview before”, West explained.
Perhaps in a move which wouldn’t be repeated by some of his peers, West told the BBC that he was happy for the interview to be used in full.
“The world can only be saved through design. Art is to be free, design is to fix”, West concluded.
