From Wendy’s To Harvard…Just A Weekend Out For Kanye West
There’s a chance that you took your girlfriend to Wendy’s on Friday night. We’ve all been there. Fistful of nuggets and dreams of the future.
However, chances are you didn’t swing by Harvard to drop some design knowledge on Sunday.
Such is the life of Yeezus.
Now that the tour is back up and running, those crazy love birds have worked up an appetite. Kanye and Kim swung by Wendy’s in Philadelphia Friday night. And not even a good Wendy’s…like with a Super Bar. No comment yet from the Fish Fillet people on this obvious betrayal.
From there, Yeezy restarted the stalled tour at the Wells Fargo Center. He sat on a chair made of women, had a staring contest with a snow beast, then met Jesus. The guy is a professional crazy person, and it’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.
Kanye, closed out his weekend with a stop at Harvard University because of course he did. In a lecture hall no less. I hope all the girls were wearing leather jogging pants.
Here’s a video of the Haaa-vaad stop, and the here’s the transcript via CoS.
So after walking through here I decided that I wanted to make sure for anyone that didn’t have tickets tonight that you all could have tickets to the show. So anybody who wants to come tonight, you can have tickets for the entire office! [CHEERS, MAD LAUGHTER]
But 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 actualized.
If I sit down and talk to Oprah for 2 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 effect in a positive way.
And I know that there’s more creativity to happen. And I know that there’s traditionalists that hold back the good thoughts and there’s people in offices that stop the creative people, and [who] 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. So in no way am I a politician–I’m usually at my best politically incorrect [LAUGHTER] and very direct. I really appreciate you guys’ willingness to learn and hone your craft, and not be lazy about creation.
I’m very inspired to be in this space. Tonight, this show, if you come see it–um, I’m a bit self-conscious because I’m showing it to architects. [LAUGHTER] So the stage does have flaws in it. [LAUGHTER] It’s an expression of emotion so give me a pass on that. And that’s basically all I have to say so thank you very much.
