Kanye West addresses graduate students in design at Harvard University Sunday.

Chicago native,rap superstar and style-meister Kanye West made a brief appearance at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design Sunday and shared some thoughts with students — plus handed out free concert tickets to his “Yeezus” tour in Boston.

West told the budding designers “the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be ‘architected.’

The entertainer also revealed he does believe “utopia is actually possible — but we’re led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest and the most political.”

†Showing he has not lost any of his self-confidence, West also told the students, “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.”

†In other Kanye news — or I should say Kimye news — West’s fiancée Kim Kardashian will star in his new music video. Us Weekly reported the reality TV star and marketing phenomenon will be appear in the video for his single “Bound 2” — which will be premiered on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show Tuesday (airing at 3 p.m. on WMAQ-Channel 5).

DeGeneres previously debuted West’s “Love Lockdown” video on her show, back in 2008.
