Kanye West couldn't contain his emotions in a British radio interview which left him in tears.

Kanye was interviewed by BBC Radio 1 and broke down when he spoke of fashion mentor Louise Wilson who died in May last year. He attended her memorial last week (just ahead of London Fashion Week) and said of his last meeting with her:

"I think she knew she was gonna pass…she was the baddest professor of all time."

Clearly holding the Director of Central Saint Martins MA fashion degree, in great affection he continued"

"She was notorious for not letting people stop at a 7 or 8, but would push for a 12 and create the likes of Alexander McQueen.  So many students, they don't give it their all."

He revealed that Wilson, who also worked for Donna Karan and is credited with training Alexander McQueen and Stella McCarteney, advised him how to get the best out of daughter North:

“She just looked at me and said: Kanye, don't clap”

At this point Kanye broke down and had to take a moment to get himself together, admitting talking about Wilson was "kinda hard for me."
