Rapper Kanye West spoke to students at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design on Sunday before his “Yeezus” tour performance at the TD Garden in Boston. "I just wanted to tell you guys, I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be 'architected,' " he said, according to a video of his talk posted on Facebook. "I believe that utopia is actually possible," West added later. "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." In the video, West also told everyone at the lecture that he had secured tickets for all of them to attend his concert at the Garden. His girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, posted to Instagram a photo of West talking to students Another photo was posted to Instagram by Virgil Abloh, the creative director of West’s brand DONDA.
