More like “Pop and Circumstance.”
Taylor Swift is set to receive an honorary doctorate from NYU and deliver a speech to the class of 2022 at graduation Wednesday morning, and the superstar’s definitely dressing the part.
“Wearing a cap and gown for the very first time – see you soon NYU,” Swift captioned a video posted to TikTok and Instagram, suiting up in purple commencement attire.
Beneath her traditional gown, the 32-year-old “Wildest Dreams” hitmakers wore a little black dress and leopard-print pumps, and she posed for photos snapped by her father before heading off to Yankee Stadium in her car.
Swift will be receiving a Doctor of Fine Arts, honoris causa, from the university, which hailed her as “one of the most prolific and celebrated artists of her generation” in a press release shared in March.
It’ll mark the Grammy winner’s first degree, as she was already writing hits and heading out on tour by the time she graduated high school.
She’s one of two special speakers slated to appear at NYU’s graduation festivities; on Wednesday evening, the school will hold an additional ceremony for the classes of 2020 and 2021 — both of which were postponed due to pandemic-related restrictions — with disability rights advocate Judith Heumann addressing the grads and receiving a Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.
Here’s hoping Swift has a “Blank Space” on her mantle for her latest honor.
