Kanye West refuses to talk on Jonathan Ross chat show

A Kim Kardashian joke didn't help matters

After the most talked about appearance at the Brit Awards and bursting into tears on Zane Lowe's show, Kanye West has refused to speak on the Jonathan Ross show.

According to The Sun, West was due to perform 'Only One' alongside fellow guests Madonna, Thierry Henry, Sigourney Weaver and Tracey Emin on his Saturday night show - but things didn't go quite as planned.

After his performance of the track, West lay on his back on the floor and refused to answer any of Ross' questions. In a bid to win him over, Ross then lay down beside him and made a joke about his wife Kim Kardashian's most famous asset. “If you want to spoon I don’t mind. It’s not as big as Kim’s but it is all yours,"

A source tells the paper  "It was all very odd. Kanye was only there to perform and not have a proper chat but he wouldn’t even say two words to Jonathan. It was very funny when Jonathan got on the ground and lay next to him."

Needless to say West refused to then go into the green room, presumably as he's neither an Arsenal supporter, isn't fussed about the new Alien film and  is not a big admirer of Men Behaving Badly.

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

On the same day as he recorded his interview with Ross, West also sat down for an extensive (and emotional) interview 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."
