Kanye West speaks to students at Harvard University
UPI News Service, 11/18/2013
Kanye West expressed his appreciation for architecture to students of the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Cambridge, Mass.
Zap2it.com said West made the appearance Sunday during his "DONDA Design Lecture Series."
"I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be 'architected,'" West said.
"If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about self-realization and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. The reason why I turn up so much in interviews is because I've tasted what it means to create and be able to impact and affect in a positive way, and I know that there is more creativity to happen," he noted.
"There's traditionalists that hold back the good thoughts. There's people in offices that stop the creative people and are intimidated by actual good ideas. I believe that utopia is actually possible, but we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political. In no way am I a politician. I'm usually at my best politically incorrect and very direct. I really appreciate you guys' willingness to learn and hone your craft."
West also gave those who attended his speech tickets to his concert in Boston, Zap2it.com said.
