It's never too late to go back!

Mary J. Blige has revealed that she intends to go to college - and has enrolled in the Howard University class of 2014!

She says:

"The city of New York gave me my high school diploma … and now Howard University has accepted me."

Amazing! She should be so proud of herself!

    why? what's the point? she's like 45 and rich……

    The fuck? Harvard would shred the college application of anyone with a GED, but a celebrity gets in? How totally unfair to all the hard working students who had to EARN their way in and who were turned down because they didn't meet their criteria!

    I'm smelling a publicity stunt… New album on the horizon? Last ditch effort for some semblance of significance? Latest has-been with a reality show? Smacks of desperation to me!

    PULEEEZ, SO SHE'S DONE IN THE MUSIC BIZ FOR 4 YRS?? HAHAHA, THINK NOT. WHAT IS SHE A P/T STUDENT LIKE 1 COURSE A YEAR?? I HIGHLY DOUBT SHE WILL BE F/T STUDENT TAKING 5-6 COURSES FOR 4 YRS. GET REALZ!!!!!!! I WONDER WHAT THE AREA OF STUDY WILL BE… I KNOW, PERFORMANCE ARTS?? HIGHLY SUSPECT FOR THE DUMB GHETTO HOOD RAT. WATCH HER READ A NOTE ON BET AWARDS 2001 THAT WAS TOTALLY TRAGIC!!!!! EMBARRASSMENT AT ITS BEST.

    She'll never graduate. College is an arduous road and a diva like her will feel too entitled to make the sacrifices it takes to succeed. Give her six weeks before she drops out?

    Re: avenger – It says HOWARD not Harvard dumbass.

    Re: avenger – You got that right! And how exactly is this "Amazing"??? People do this ever day, but she's a celeb, so her dropping out of school, then going back to get a GED is 'amazing'? I think not.
    I do hope that she really does follow through and isn't just doing this as a stunt though. It's a great thing, and would serve as a fine example to others. More power to her if she's sincere about it.

    Is she going to major in TATS 101?



  9. 9

    WHy is she waiting until 2014? Can I apply and tell them I will show up for 2020?

    I was under the assumption that to enroll in a University with a GED that you had to have your Associates Degree under your belt already. You can't go right for your BA with a GED… unless you can write a BIG ass donation check apparently.

    Howard U is for degenerates she should fit in just fine.

    Good for you GURL! That is very inspiring, I'm sure, to many people who want to go to school but think it might be too late.

    Re: Babycakes!!! – Uh, that's the year she's supposed to graduate.



  15. 15

    Re: Babycakes!!! – that is when she is going to graduate, in 2014!

    Re: AvaLovesAbs – Howard U is not for degenerates! Some of the best and most influential African-Americans of our time graduated from Howard University! Know your facts before you make a blank statement like that!

    finally a celebrity faces the fact that their career is not as hot as it use to be and is actually trying to learn something n get a job to earn money. WHO CARES if shes 45. college doesnt have an age limit.RETARDS. harvard may be a little far fetched but money can get u into any school u desire dont act like its a suprise people its AMERICA and how would it look if she was in a community college? she'd be called a dumb ass. either way she will recieve critism, atleast shes trying to better herself
