Taylor Swift made a modest joke while giving a college commencement address after receiving an honorary doctorate.

The superstar told thousands of New York University graduates at Yankee Stadium: “I’m 90% sure I was invited because I have a song called ’22.’

The 32-year-old singer-songwriter received an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from New York University on Monday. The red pop star, who went straight into the music business after graduating from high school a year earlier, addressed the graduates of the distinguished school.

Swift also delivered some sound advice to the students, who applauded her eloquent words, telling them that getting into embarrassing trouble was just a fact of life.

‘Learn to live with shame,’ he said.

‘No matter how hard you try to avoid being embarrassed, you will look back on your life and be embarrassed.’

Swift added: “Life can be heavy, especially if you’re trying to carry everything at once.”

He urged the students to think about who had taken care of them as children and answered all of their questions as they grew up, no matter how ridiculous. The music icon suggested that students think of a way to thank that person if they were in the crowd with them, or remember them if they have passed away.

“Wearing a cap and gown for the first time, see you soon, NYU,” the singer wrote in an Instagram post as she was seen making her way to Yankee Stadium in New York, where the event will take place.

‘Since 2019, we have been deprived of the festive and communal cheer of graduation, and its absence has been deeply felt.

‘Few groups of graduates deserve a celebration more than these classes: their pursuit of their studies interrupted, isolated by a daunting pandemic, these classes (2022, 2021 and 2020) have distinguished themselves by their determination, grace and patience.

“We come together again at Yankee Stadium with a renewed sense of appreciation for the act of celebrating together in person, an acknowledgment of the tremendous accomplishments of our graduates, and a respect for their character and perseverance.”
