Taylor Swift delivered a commencement speech to New York University graduates and received an honorary degree at Yankee Stadium. She joked that she was likely selected to receive the honor “because I have a song called ’22,” and advised the class “not to cringe away from cringe.”

  1. Romans 10:9-10- If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

    Accept Jesus into your life today He is loving and everything you need in this life and the life after! He loves you immensely, open up Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in your Bible and read about Him. Get to know who He is :). John 14:6- Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."✝️❤ Being a Christian will not always be easy, and does not mean that you won't experience temptation and sin; we are humans after all. Furthermore, we must ask for forgiveness for all of our sins. You may lay your burdens at His feet. Forgiving others for their sins is also very important.

    Jesus said- "14For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." (Matthew 6:14-15)

    "8If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us." (1 John 1:8-10)

    “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28).
    We are cleansed by the blood of Jesus because of His great sacrifice on the cross.

    " 16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son." (John 3:16-18)

    "6If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." (1 John 1:6-7)

    We are saved by the grace of God through faith. (Check Ephesians 2:8-10)

    If you seek God, you are seeking eternity with Him!
    God bless you all, seek Him and you WILL find Him🙏🏾❤

  2. Only in America. A barely literate person is celebrated for promoting an Alzheimer's puppet of evil as President, offering her vagina to the world, and being able to speak in her native tongue (such an achievement – yes sarcasm). Of all places – by academia my a^^.

  3. how is she deserving of this?
    i have no idea who this woman is, i don't listen to stupid music (only metal m/) but i doubt she has even basic amounts of understanding what science is and the way she carries even a prepared speech reveals the dept of her common knowledge – in a word: she's nothing special.. so how did she deserve to be recognized by an university? can't be by just baby-talking to grown-ups, right?

  4. Hi, I’m Taylor.
    Last time I was in a stadium this size, I was dancing in heels and wearing a glittery leotard. This outfit is much more comfortable.
    I’d like to say a huge thank you to NYU‘s Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Bill Berkeley and all the trustees and members of the board, NYU’s President Andrew Hamilton, Provost Katherine Fleming, and the faculty and alumni here today who have made this day possible. I feel so proud to share this day with my fellow honorees Susan Hockfield and Felix Matos Rodriguez, who humble me with the ways they improve our world with their work. As for me, I’m…90% sure the main reason I’m here is because I have a song called ‘22’. And let me just say, I am elated to be here with you today as we celebrate and graduate New York University’s Class of 2022.

    Not a single one of us here today has done it alone. We are each a patchwork quilt of those who have loved us, those who have believed in our futures, those who showed us empathy and kindness or told

  5. I'm not a TS fan. But I can see and appreciate the adulation she gets from her generation as I did with the musical legends of mine. I'm glad she is being honored as she honors and inspires young people today. A great speech, very moving, very inspiring that can only come from the heart. Congratulations NYU Class of 22 !

  6. She is such a natural public speaker not only from her talence but also from extremely rich life experience. Her speech is so inspiring even for mature adults.

  7. 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂 the world stage ended up being nothing but a bunch of pretenders. It's not even acting it's pretend totally make believe ✌🏾

  8. As much as I admire Taylor Swift, she is the perfect example of how NOT to "waste" time and money on a university degree.
    Even more so when post secondary education has become so expensive. Heard and Depp did not go to university.
    They made millions of dollars. And now their sordid personal lives are becoming public. And Mayim Bialik.
    She has a PhD in neuroscience and is hosting a TV game show. So why bother doing a PhD? And if she is a TV host,
    what is up with her research career? Two very smart women nonetheless. Why did Taylor Swift not study classical music?
    In university? She would have been learning the base of music for her own songs and getting a degree as well.

  9. Master of Fine nothing.
    She can't sing.
    Her lyrics are lame.
    Even her speech.
    She's right when she says cringe is unavoidable.
    She's one of them.
