I bet you didn’t see this coming: Kanye West is now officially a doctor after receiving an honorary degree from the Art Institute of Chicago.
That’s right, after dropping out of college at the age of 20, the douchebag that everyone loves to hate now has a doctorate, making him more “educated” than most people.
“Dr. West was” was recognised by the Art Institute of Chicago for his “transformative, genre-defying work,” because we all know he’s the kind of guy who needs an ego boost. The 37-year-old was honoured after a staff member at the college read that he always wished he’d gone there.
Surprisingly, the usually confident Kanye, admitted he was nervous receiving the designation, stating:
“I don’t feel that feeling a lot, the nerves of humility and modesty when being honoured. A humanisation a reality of being recognised. And all I thought as I sit here kind of shaking a little bit is ‘I need to get rid of that feeling.”
He said the following in his acceptance speech:
“I am a pop artist. So my medium is public opinion and the world is my canvas.”
For those that hate the personality that is Kanye West, does him becoming ‘Dr. Kanye West’ make you respect him more? Let us know in the comments.
