This is what Kanye West said during his bizarre lecture at Oxford University
The society announced the news on Facebook yesterday after "a great deal of hard work and extensive negotiations." Naturally, when the man himself actually took to the stage, there was much excitement. More than 1,600 people said they were attending on Facebook.
Students kept the public updated about their special guest on a standalone publication called "Versa" and tweeted about the goings on using hash tags such as #YesWeKanye. The Tab, the country's cross-uni student newspaper, also did a live blog on Twitter.
Kanye got going at 3pm and talked for around half an hour. Versa noted initial doubts that the whole project could have been a "monumental troll," but just before the hour mark confirmed that he was in the building. The President of the Oxford University Student Union tweeted this photo of the event:
We all know about West's antics, odd thoughts, and love of Steve Jobs - and his university "lecture" didn't disappoint. It follows a very different setting to his Nando's exploits last month, and his most recent moment of absurdity at the Grammys, of course.
Here are a few highlights from The Tab on Twitter:
"Chris Rock & everyone else at every single media publication called My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy the best album of the last 25 years."- The Tab Oxford (@TheTabOxford) March 2, 2015
K: "You're looking for this moment where you sit in your BMW and you look at all of the work that you've done and how big your house is, and somehow you think you're gonna get that level of joy that my daughter had when she was seeing those wolves."
