My current favourite website.
Kanye West shares his ideas on the creative world and DONDAS with the Harvard school of Design. This is what he had to say.
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 affect 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.Tweet
I can honestly say I haven’t really heard much of Lady Gagas new album. I wouldnt even call myself a fan but like most people who spend alot of time online and listen to the radio I cant escape her.
Recently she dropped her new album ARTPOP with cover work done through a collaboration between her and Jeff Koons.
The above image is the original cover. The fact that I can name most of the paintings used in the cover puts a smirk of disgust on my face because It turns out I did listen in art history class more than I originally thought I did. Im not really understanding the shadows underneath her right leg. Would I censor it?? No, Ive seen worse driving home at 4 in the morning when all the club goers are heading home drunk in crop tops and tights.
The Middle East however isnt too happy (surprise??), which slightly amuses me.. Alot of Arab celebrities are usually half naked and thats because sex sells. Anyways, the Middle East has redone the album and released it version of it. They have increased the size of the massive blue ball to cover her breasts which were already covered and they have coloured her legs charcoal black, im assuming to give the impression that she’s wearing stockings.
Priorities in the Middle East need to be reviewed. I think they have more to worry about other than Lady Gagas exposed legs.Tweet
