Kanye West interview

Interview

West breaks down during an interview with BBC Radio 1 host Lowe while discussing late fashion design professor Louise Wilson.

[She was] the baddest professor of all time of any fashion school, ever. I didn’t know we were going to lose her.

West cries into his hands and walks out of interview for a few moments.

That’s never happened to me in an interview before.

Denies ageist claims

Makes Statement

BBC Radio 1 denies claims from fans that Madonna’s music is being omitted from the station’s playlists due to her age.

Radio 1 does not ban anyone—please don’t believe the papers. The tracks played on Radio 1 are chosen on musical merit and their relevance to our young audience on a case-by-case basis, and whilst around 40% of the country’s 15 to 29-year-olds tune into Radio 1 each week, an artist’s age is never a factor. In fact, Paul McCartney currently has two tracks —FourFiveSeconds and Only One—on the Radio 1 playlist.
