Kanye West lectures at Harvard: Strangest celebrity mentor?
Kanye West lecturing at Harvard? …Really? Yes, it happened. The College Dropout rapper spoke to an audience of design students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston on Sunday.
SODAHEAD SLIDESHOW: Strangest celebrity mentors
The event was part of Kanye's DONDA Design Lecture Series, which covers discussions on art and design, two of Kanye's passions… aside from rapping, of course.
In front of the audience, Kanye said his usual Kanye-esque things like "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 "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."
Well, he got one thing right. He's definitely politically incorrect. What do you think of Kanye lecturing to such a talented group of designers? Does he make a good role model -- or one of the strangest celebrity mentors of all time? Surely, there are other stars who make horrible role models. But who's the absolute worst of them all?
