    Gee, her child (or children) should be so proud. Now maybe she can read the fine print so they dont take her home from her again.



  2. 2

    that's a goddamn shame!



  3. 3

    Honorary? Has she not gotten her GED? Good example for her daughter… finish school, girlfriend and earn your diploma.



  4. 4

    Good for her! Yay



  5. 5

    I wonder how much she paid for that "honor". If she didn't win American Idol, she'd just be another burden to society. What a great role model.



  6. 6

    wasn't this months ago??? swore she got it when filming that gay ass show for vh1……..



  7. 7

    I bet she still cant read or write ….



  8. 8

    "honorary"? Why didn't this lazy asshole take the GED?



  9. 9

    What in the hell is an "honorary high school diploma"? What good would that do anyone? Do you mean she EARNED her GED?



  10. 10

    "Graduates" is misleading. Being given an "honorary" diploma is NOT graduating from high school!

    Re: Poindexter-X – And they say gays are tolerant. Hmm.



  12. 12

    Wow, what an accomplishment. NOT.



  13. 13

    don't really care for her, but good job! now take the next step and go to college girl!



  14. 14

    Whay is it a "proud moment!" If it's "honorary" it means she didn't earn it. She neeeds to go back to school and earn her diploma. She also needfs to get clean and lose some weight and get herself on track. She has awesome talent, but she won't listen to anyone and she is a mess. When Oprah put her on Broadway in Color Purple, she even missed performances. She was really good when she showed up. Fantasia burned thru a lot of good will from people who could have helped launch her career. She is embarrassing.



  15. 15

    BFD! It's not a "real" diploma like the ones that you have to WORK to get. She still can't read or write.



  16. 16

    It is honorary! It means she did nothing to get it! She got it because she was on some lame tv show and is "famous" now. What a joke! If she received her GED, then I'd be happy for her.



  17. 17

    That was my graduation!! However, Im not sure that anyone was really impressed that she was there, considering how much crap she has said about High Point. But I guess now I can say "Fantasia was at my graduation" instead of "Fantasia dropped out of my high school."



  18. 18

    Just so everyone knows, she did receive her GED.



  19. 19

    That's good. Probably her daughter can read it to her.



  20. 20

    she did receive her GED, by the way.

    Re: zooby

    LOL! Sorry Zooby :)

    What a proud moment? Congrats bb?!?!? Seriously, c'mon.



  23. 23

    doesn't "honorary" mean it was given to her and not earned??? Like when celebs get "honorary" doctorate degrees from colleges because they've done humanitarian work or paid them lots of money..I.E. Bill Cosby has an "honorary" doctorate



  24. 24

    that's awesome… they should give all uneducated retards diplomas. it makes everyone feel good!



  25. 25

    omg you guys are all little fuckers
    she finished her GED
    so stop riding her ass for setting a good example for her daughter
    love you fantasia! :] congrats girl.



  26. 26

    Now she's like the rest of her classmate, given diplomas regardless of whether they can read-write-or do arithmetic.



  27. 27

    i'm sorry but only a ghetto girl like her would actually be proud of herself for doing this at her age lol



  28. 28

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!! HONORARY? NO REALLY? HONORARY? HA HA. I mean a GED is pathetic enough…but "HONORARY" HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA? Someone needs to tell that fat retard to get a real education.



  29. 29

    Re: Dexter625 – Bill Cosby has an EARNED DOCTORATE you moron.



  30. 30

    Re: Dexter625 – actually, Cosby has a few honorary doctorates in addition to his earned doctorate so maybe that's what you meant. Sorry.



  31. 31

    What a joke!!! This is shocking considering Fantasia trashed the City of High Point and blamed our educational system for her illiteracy!! I am embarrassed that Andrews High School would even "give" her this HONOR!!
    I agree with speckdots, she probably still can't read or write!!



  32. 32

    now she can get that job at kfc good for her



  33. 33

    Honorary degrees only lessen the meaning of real degrees. It depreciates the value of one that was actually earned. This bitch should get a real degree, just like all the other celebs who have them awarded to them.



  34. 34

    Honorary? That's just sad. That's not proud.



  35. 35

    EARNED her honorary diploma? HA! You don't EARN an honorary diploma.



  36. 36

    Good for her! She is wonderful and seems like a very genuine and sweet person. She had a lot of amazing talent and can do anything she puts her mind to!



  37. 37

    She got her GED so she deserves it.



  38. 38

    So all I had to do was get famous and make a shit ton of money and not have to bust my ass in school forever and just get an honorary degree? WTF these people are so retarded…how proud everyone must be



  39. 39

    I've heard of people getting an honarary doctorate, but an honarary high school diploma??? lmao no seriously i hope she don't think they just handed her a big straw with a ribbon around it.



  40. 40

    took her long enough



  41. 41

    Who the fuck cares…..Honorary means she did NOTHING to earn it. Shitty role model for her child.



  42. 42

    Great example to set for kids looking up to her–don't worry about working hard and EARNING anything–maybe someone will just give it to you.



  43. 43

    Oh jeez, what a great accomplishment. (sarcasm) WHo the hell doesn't graduate high school these days? It's easier than hell and its free. SHe's a retard.



  44. 44

    *YAWN* …"honorary"???? OOOOOOOOOOOK… I wonder if I can get my honorary doctorate that I have been working hard on for a year…? Hmmmm… pisses me off when celebs get this shit… well, she is not a celeb but whatever…



  45. 45

    I didn't know you could buy your high school diploma.



  46. 46

    honorary isn't the real thing. at least she should've gotten her GED.

    OFGS - an honorary HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA. Dude - go to school and get the real thing, so you can read and write. I've never laughed so hard in my life. How is she going to read the contracts, music, etc. Do it for reals!! You can't be that stoopid.

  48. Lucas says – reply to this


    48

    okay, now I'm really bamboozled. If she has her GED then WTF does she need an honorary diploma for? It doesn't matter -a GED is NOT the same as a High School Diploma (just ask those of us who actually went to school for years). GED Students are not required to take traditional courses in order to earn their GED. The examinations take seven hours and five minutes cumulatively.

    So she took a wicked 7 hour test to obtain her GED. I bet she didn't learn to read and write in that short time. Geeezzzz…..

    Oh and get this. The GED is all multiple choice. So you can be totally mentally challenged and still pass — just pick and choose. I remember the good ol' days of essay's and stand up reports.

    Sorry Fantasia - you get an F in my class.



  49. 49

    she looks great! :)
    why is she in high school though??

    and what's with the reading and writing jokes???



  50. 50

    She did a kick-ass job playing Celie, portraying a late to come out lesbian( which was in the book, but not the film) in the Color Purple which was better than the actress LaChanze who won the TONY Award. She also has petformed at LA Gay Pride.



  51. 51

    I am really proud of this woman. When i think of the hard life she had growing up, i can't help but feel proud that she was able to complete her education, even if it's only an honorary… so to all her haters here on this comment list, BACK the EFF off, while she's making her millions and finishing her schooling, you're hating on her on Perez Hilton. GROW UP!!!!!!!!!!!



  52. 52

    Apparently she did get her GED - Perez doesn't know how to do research.



  53. 53

    She did take her GED, caught it on her show once. She wanted to do it for her daughter. A lot of stars do not even have a high school diploma. I am proud of her!



  54. 54

    From where??? Illiterate Ghetto U



  55. 55

    HONORARY? That means the ghetto bitch still cant read.



  56. 56

    whoopieeee. now learn how to read
