Jon Bon Jovi has never been so qualified to prescribe "Bad Medicine" as he is now.
On Monday, the University of Pennsylvania gave the 57-year-old rocker an honorary Doctor of Music degree during its 263rd Commencement. Following the event, which was staged at Philadelphia's Franklin Field, Bon Jovi tweeted, "It's better to be a doctor than be in need of a doctor."
The honor marked the second time Bon Jovi was handed a degree without having to go through any annoying schooling. In 2001, Monmouth University awarded the New Jersey native an honorary Doctorate of Humanities.
Do honorary degrees really mean anything? Should universities give them out in front of students who have worked hard and spent a lot of money to earn theirs?
