Kanye West speaks at Harvard ahead of Boston concertKimye's been making rounds on the East Coast for the past few days, following up a date night in Philly with a trip to Boston, where Kanye augmented his performance schedule with a talk at Harvard Graduate School of Design. During the lecture, Yeezus discussed his company, DONDA, but according to Us Weekly's report, he spent more time doing odd grammatical things with verbiage about intangible concepts. "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," he said in one head-scratcher. Oprah made her way into another: "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."Later, the man who once said he knows "how to make perfect" suggested that society has the potential to be perfect, too. "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," he said, before telling the students, "I really appreciate you guys' willingness to learn and hone your craft, and not be lazy about creation."RELATED: Kim K.'s tightest looks
