NEW YORK – Taylor Swift has a rich Grammy Award, and now she has a new title – “Doctor”.

On Wednesday, the superstar received an honorary doctorate in fine arts from New York University, letting out kisses when the crowd roared as she walked to the stage at the packed Yankee Stadium.

Picking up her branded red lipstick and the newly awarded honorary robe, Swift joked in front of thousands of alumni who gathered: “I’m 90% sure the main reason I’m here is that I have a song called 22.

“I’ve never had a normal experience in college as such. I went to public high school until the 10th grade, and then I finished my homework on the floor of the airport terminals, ”Swift said in her speech.

The singer, producer and director said she started her music career at the age of 15, touring on various radio stations across the country. She has sold over 100 million albums and won the Grammy Award of the Year in 2021 for her album “folkore”, making her the first woman to win three times in this category. Her previous victories were in 2010 for “Fearless” and in 2016 for “1989”.

She winked at the crowd when Jason King of the Clive Davis Institute of Music Recording mentioned her recently re-recorded albums, including “Fearless”.

Swift shared the advice with the 2022 class, but warned: “I by no means feel qualified to tell you what to do. You worked, fought, donated, studied and dreamed of your way here today. I won’t tell you what to do because no one likes it, but I’ll give you life hacks when I started my career.

“Never hesitate to try. Ease is a myth, ”she said.

Swift ended her speech by telling the graduates that making mistakes is inevitable, but “if hard things happen to us, we will recover, we will learn from it, we will become more resilient because of it. As long as we are lucky enough to breathe, we will inhale, breathe, breathe deeply and exhale. Now I’m a doctor, so I know how breathing works.

“I hope you know how proud I am to share this day with you,” she said. “We do it together, so let’s just keep dancing like we’re from 22nd grade.”
