Watch Oprah, Cardi B, and More Stars Share Uplifting Words of Wisdom For the Class of 2020
On Friday, Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak led the #Graduation2020 virtual commencement ceremony on Facebook Watch. Thanks to Facebook and Instagram, a ton of celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Cardi B, Hugh Jackman, Malala Yousafzai, Matthew McConaughey, and more were able to impart wisdom upon those students who were graduating in a less than traditional manner due to in-person ceremonies being postponed or canceled in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Each celebrity gave their own spin on what they thought would be most important to the grads, but Hugh might have had the best advice: "Listen to Oprah about everything, and one more thing: wear sunscreen." That being said, Malala's words were some of the most powerful, with her saying that she hopes "the future will be even better as we become more responsible people." For more encouraging words and a few funny anecdotes, see all the celebrity shout-outs ahead. And once more, congratulations to the class of 2020! You did it!
