Taylor Swift Receives Doctorate Degree At Yankee Stadium: Look + Listen

Blowing kisses to the crowd as she walked toward the stage at a packed Yankee Stadium today (5.18,) Taylor Swift received an honorary doctorate of fine arts from New York University.

Donning her signature red lipstick and newly awarded honorary robe, the superstar singer/songwriter addressed the thousands of assembled graduates:

“I’m 90% sure the main reason I’m here is because I have a song called 22.” “I never got to have a normal college experience per se. I went to public high school until 10th grade and then finished my education doing home school work on the floor of airport terminals.”

In her commencement speech the multi-hyphenate celebrity stated that she began her music career at 15, touring different radio stations across the country and while Swift shared advice with the class of 2022 she also offered a warning, stating:

“I in no way feel qualified to tell you what to do. You’ve worked and struggled and sacrificed and studied and dreamed your way here today. I won’t tell you what to do because nobody likes that, but I will however give you life hacks for when I was starting out my dreams as a career. “Never be ashamed of trying. Effortlessness is a myth.”

Taylor concluded her speech by telling graduates that making mistakes is inevitable but “when hard things happen to us, we will recover, we will learn from it, we will grow more resilient because of it. As long as we are fortunate enough to be breathing, we will breathe in, breathe through, breathe deep and breathe out. I am a doctor now so I know how breathing works.” “I hope you know how proud I am to share this day with you.” “We’re doing this together so let’s just keep on dancing like we’re the class of 22.”

Taylor Swift has sold more than 100,000,000 albums and won album of the year at the 2021 Grammys for her album “folkore,” making her the first woman to win the Recording Academy category honor three times following her “Fearless” (2010) and “1989.” (2016.)
