Graduation speeches that come from the heart and past experiences are always tear jerkers!
Normally, we'd all expect to get great laughs from someone like Jim Carrey — and he did manage to sneak in a few jokes during his speech!
But when he stood in front of a crowd of graduating students, faculty members, and family members to deliver his commencement speech at the Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, the comedian inspired many, if not all.
The Truman Show actor told a story of his father, who inspired him to become a comedian, which in turn lead to this inspiring message to the graduating class of 2014:
Oh man! What we wouldn't give to be present for THIS!
Dartmouth College announced this morning that Conan O'Brien will be giving the commencement address to the school's graduating class of 2011!
Check out the announcement from Eric Tanner, Dartmouth's Student Body President (above)!
Apparently, the funnyman normally turns down these types of invitations, but because the college's President, Jim Kim, was a former student of O'Brien's father, Harvard University professor Thomas O'Brien, he agreed.
He says in a statement:
"I was honored to to be asked to give the commencement address to Dartmouth's graduating class of 2011, until I found out their first choice was Pauly D."
Lucky ducks! We hope you guys realize what a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity this one is!
We were waiting for that jaw-dropping moment at the 2015 VMAs-- and we think Kanye Westjust checked off that box!
The All Day performer was awarded the night's honorable Video Vanguard Award, presented to him by Taylor Swift, who spoke about the infamous "Imma let you finish" fiasco from six years ago.
But when Yeezy took to the stage, he made it abundantly clear that he doesn't understand award shows!
After relishing in the applause for a bit too long, the rapper gave a long-winded speech that seemed to start out as an apology for his past antics, then turned into throwing MTVunder the bus for only wanting good ratings, and then he reminded us that children are the future.
'Ye wrapped up his speech the best way possible -- by, what else, announcing that he'll be running for president in 2020! (Yes, srsly!)
Check out the speech (above) and see if you think Kanye is seriously running for prez!
