Kanye West breaks down in tears during Zane Lowe interview

Another epic Yeezy interview for BBC Radio One

Kanye West was again interviewed by BBC Radio One's Zane Lowe, and this time he broke down in tears. Watch it in full below. 

It's been an eventful 2015 for Yeezy so far - causing a stir by interrupting Beck's accpetance for Best Album at the GRAMMY Awards (something which Shirley Manson, Noel Gallagher and Billy Corgan particularly had a problem with), before making his epic comeback to the UK with a huge performance of 'All Day' at this week's BRIT Awards

Now, in the fhe follow-up to his now legendary and opinion-splitting 2013 interview, West sat down for yet another lengthy chat with Zane Lowe. 

In discussing the late Louise Wilson, a British professor of fashion design at Central St Martins, West was reduced to tears.

"I went to Louise Wilson's memorial, the greatest fashion instructor of all time," he told Lowe. "Louise Wilson was the baddest professor of all time of any fashion school ever, notorious for not letting people stop at a 7 or an 8, pushing people to a 12."

He went on to recall their last meeting, saying "I didn't know we were going to lose her," before crying on camera and admitting "that's never happened to me in an interview before."

When quizzed on interrupting Beck at the GRAMMYs, West replied: “I misconstrued it, but everyone has a right to an opinion. Everyone has the right to be wrong."

Other highlights included West's thoughts on their last interview (“No-one wanted to allow me to think or be involved in the product, I’m a product man”), progress on his new material (“We’re being inventive and I’ve still got a lot of opinions and perspectives that can be inspiring to people that fight, The College Dropout came out of a fight to rap - and this is coming out of a fight to design") and this brilliant moment on his past and present public persona: 

“Imagine if someone went up to this girl in a bar, ‘Yo what I’m a genius!.. She’d be like, ‘Gosh, get out of here already’. That’s what I was. I was like the 40 year old Virgin or that other movie with Ryan Gosling. My message simply was: ‘Your egg. My semen. We’re gonna change the world'."

"If people mess me around - at any moment, I hit that ‘Ye button, and we can go back to day one."
