Taylor Swift Says She's 'Proud' of The Class of 2020 During Virtual Commencement

Taylor Swift shared a comforting message for the Class of 2020.

As one of the many celebrity speakers at YouTube Originals’ Dear Class of 2020, the 30-year-old musician recalled that she also didn’t make it to her own graduation.

“I wanted to say congratulations to all the graduates this year. I know this is probably not the graduation you thought you were going to be having. I relate to that in a lot of ways,” Taylor said during her brief appearance.

She added, “When I was younger, I used to fantasize about high school graduation and being with all of your friends and cap and gown and the whole thing. Then when I got to that point in my life where graduation was coming up, I found myself on a radio tour with my mom in rental cars, sitting on the floors of airports, and I ended up being mailed my diploma.”

Taylor continued, “So it wasn’t exactly what I pictured, but I was still really proud of it, and I guess one good lesson to come from it is expect the unexpected, but celebrate anyway.”

“I’m so proud of you guys and I hope that you have a wonderful time and are really proud of yourselves.”
