Kanye inspires Harvard with speech

Kanye West has visited Harvard to give design students an inspirational speech, cheered on by fiancee Kim Kardashian.

The Yeezus rapper made a stop off from his tour to visit the Boston university's Harvard School Of Design for its DONDA Lecture Series, according to Us Weekly.

He spoke about his passion for design improving the world, saying: "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.

"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 actualised."

On why he opens up so much in interviews, Kanye told the students: "If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about realisation, self realisation, 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."

Kim Instagrammed a photo of the speech, captioned: "My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design."
