Kanye West Finally Graduates

Illustration for article titled Kanye West Finally Graduates

In today’s Tweet Beat, Kanye gets an honorary degree and will probably never shut up about it, Azealia Banks has maybe just penned my new life motto and never fly with Jane Lynch.

DISCUSSION

Sorry, a bitter rant from a broke grad student cannot be contained any longer.

As someone who owes a hell of a lot of money for student loans taken out while working on an actual PhD, and who lived in an apartment with no heat because said loans and a stipend were barely enough to cover rent and food much less heat, and whose grandchildren will probably be paying for the loans, and who suffered immense stress over research papers, conferences, nutty professors, terrible students, and comps, and who is still hacking out a dissertation while racking up massive amounts of interest on those student loans, and who will only ever be worth $50-$60k a year IF and ONLY IF she’s really lucky...congratulations Kanye. You earned it.

Actually, what I meant to say is, I’mma let you finish, but we all know that the millions of grad students who have been busting their asses over actual graduate level work are the ones who really deserve those degrees, right? I could walk away from my dissertation even after countless hours of coursework and having passed comps and thousands of dollars spent and still not get that effing degree for want of a dissertation, but this guy...and all the celebrities like him...they just get handed these degrees for being rich and famous?
