It's not that often you hear Kanye West eating humble pie. But the rapper has revealed that living in the Kardashian/Jenner household has taught him how to respect women.

Speaking in an interview with Complex, the 'FourFiveSecond' singer said, "When I was a single bachelor rapper, and with the access that I had, I realised that I wasn't respecting women the way I needed to."

Formerly, he was sometimes blasted for slightly misogynistic lyrics and videos. But now he's a dad with the most famous Kardashian on his arm, he says, "God has an amazing way of teaching people."

So what really caused the turnaround? As well as his love for Kim, it was moving into 'momager' Kris Jenner's house while the couple waited for their luxury Beverly Hills mansion to be built.

"Literally for two years I lived with all alpha females and a daughter, you know? [Laughs] So I had to learn to really do what my mother taught me, and become the man she always knew I could be, and bow as a creative," he told Vanity Fair.

Speaking of being a creative, Kanye recently presented his Autumn/Winter 2015 collection for adidas Originals at New York Fashion Week - and pulled in a stellar FROW lineup.

Stars taking up front row pews included Beyoncé and Jay Z, Rihanna, Drake, Justin Bieber, P Diddy, Anna Winter, and, of course, the aforementioned "alpha females", Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian and daughter North.

It was a line-up so powerful, Yeezy described it as "almost like the Super Bowl of culture".

And he even had his little sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner, walking in the show.
