Kanye West's Ego Grows Tenfold With Honorary Doctorate

    If you thought Kanye West thought a lot of himself before, it's about to get worse. After revealing in an interview with Clique that he was being giving an honorary doctorate from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, in what many assumed was just another braggadocios statement, was actually telling the truth. West, a famous college dropout, will be given a diploma for music. The funny part is the school doesn't have any music program. Obviously, some people are mystified and others are downright pissed. It all started when West said he wished he had attended The Art Institute over the American Academy of Art.

    I'm all for rewarding talent and Kanye is definitely a genius when it comes to music, but this is ridiculous. A compliment should by no means be a way to get offered an honorary diploma. The creation of a diploma for one sole famous person is even stranger. I appreciate Kanye getting love in the education community for his contributions to society, but I think this move is more PR than justified.
