Ed Sheeran: I’m A Doctor Now! (VIDEO)
Ed Sheeran says he’s now a doctor. And, well, technically he is. Check out the photo and video below!
On Monday, the singer was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from the University Campus Suffolk. Sheeran was chosen for the honor for his “outstanding contribution to music.” The recognition was extra-special for the performer as he is actually from Suffolk, but dropped out of school at 16 to pursue his dream of becoming a musician.
At Monday’s ceremony in Ipswich, Sheeran reportedly said from the stage, “I’m really grateful to University Campus Suffolk and I’m honored to receive this honorary degree. I’ve had an amazing year with my world tour and this makes it even better. Suffolk is very much where I call home and I’m always welcomed back and get so much support.”
Sheeran took to Twitter and Instagram afterward to celebrate. Along with a photo of himself in full robes, he wrote, “I graduated today, I am now officially Dr. Sheeran.” A few minutes later, the British star tweeted, “I wasn’t joking, I am actually a doctor now, that’s how mad this world is.”
The school’s official Instagram account also shared a short video of Sheeran congratulating graduates, and a photo from his confirmation. “It’s official – Dr Ed Sheeran! #UCSgrad #edsheeran,” read the caption. Check out the clip and photos below!
