The University of Pennsylvania’s 2014 commencement speaker is…both more and less exciting than last year’s honoree, VP Joe Biden. More, because Grammy Award-winner John Legend is not an old white guy. But less because a., he’s not as prone to saying inappropriate stuff and b., he already spoke at Penn commencement! Five years ago!
OK, so it was for the College of Arts and Sciences ceremony, but there are still a lot of people there. We know that it’s nice to have Mr. Class of ’99 up in there, but c’mon. Oh, and file the below video away so you can make sure that he doesn’t just repeat his speech come May.
