Kanye West stopped by the Harvard School of Design yesterday to give a speech as a part of the DONDA Design Lecture Series, named after his late mother, as is the company that sponsors the series. Amazingly, it seemed to go rather well.
In a video posted to Facebook you can hear Kanye talk about several things from design to interviewing with Oprah.

“I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be architected. And this is the reason why even some of the first DONDA employees were architects that started designing T-shirts instead of buildings. But just to see the work actually be actualized.”
“If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about realization, self realization, and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. So 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.”
“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. So 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, and not be lazy about creation.”
Of course Kim Kardashian was also on hand, sharing one of the above photos with the caption, “My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.”
Expect a new Kardashian line of Ivy League-based fragrances to hit store shelves any day now.
