She also expressed her gratitude toward the university for honoring her with the doctorate degree.

'I'd like to thank NYU for making me technically, on paper at least, a doctor,' Taylor said. 

'Not the type of doctor you would want around in the case of an emergency, unless your specific emergency was that you desperately needed to hear a song with a catchy hook and an intensely cathartic bridge section.

'Or if your emergency was that you needed a person who can name over 50 breeds of cats in one minute.'   

Swift went on to thank her parents and brother Austin for supporting her dreams, and urged all other graduates to show gratitude to whoever had helped them on their way, or remember them if they'd since died. 

Continuing with her philosophical theme, she added: 'The scary news is, you are on your own now, but the cool news is, you're on your own now.'

The Red songstress did not attend college, instead going straight into the music business aged 17 after graduating high school a year early. 

In March, NYU announced that Taylor would be giving the commencement address and that she would be receiving the title of Doctor of Fine Arts, honoris causa. 

In a 2016 73 Questions with Vogue interview, the I Knew You Were Trouble singer previously shared that she hoped to received a honorary doctorate degree.

She told the outlet, 'I really want an honorary doctorate degree, because Ed Sheeran has one, and I feel like he looks down on me now 'cause I don't have one.'
