Meet Doctor Kanye West


Meet Doctor Kanye West

Kanye was given an honorary doctorate degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

That's right, not just any degree, a doctorate. It means he's now technically Doctor West.

Kanye was recognised for "transformative, genre-defying work" at a ceremony there.

But the man who does not usually seem to lack confidence admitted he did feel the nerves.

"I don't feel that feeling a lot, the nerves of humility and modesty when being honoured," he said.

"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.'"

In his acceptance speech he said: "I am a pop artist. So my medium is public opinion and the world is my canvas".

He also argued people shouldn't feel the need to apologise for their opinions.

'I'm sorry' is something that you can use a lot, it gives you the opportunity to give your opinion, apologise for it, and give you opinion again," he laughed.

He claimed the honour would make it easier for people to "defend him" too.

The college decided to honour Kanye after a member of staff read that the he'd always wished he'd gone there.
