In a 2016 73 Questions with Vogue interview, the I Knew You Were Trouble singer previously shared that she hoped to receive an honorary doctorate.

She told the outlet, “I really want an honorary doctorate because Ed Sheeran has one, and I feel like now he’s looking down on me because I don’t have one.”
