And just when we thought he'd been off the grid long enough to be out of our lives forever!
Former Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav has already touched our lives in
bizarre and uncomfortable significant ways with his appearances on such reality shows as The Surreal Life and Strange Love, and now, he's ready to take the Billy Madison route and go back and try to earn his high school diploma - on a reality TV show called Flavor Flav Goes Back To High School!
The rapper will attempt to attend school in Clinton, Iowa, and sources close to production have learned that they're attempting to pay students to stick around and film with him after hours, as to not disrupt the teens' normal schedule during the day.
However, Clinton School System Superintendent Deb Olsen has yet to be fully receptive to the idea, and thinks that his presence will bring "a substantial disruption to the school day" and could have "an adverse effect on students."
Flav has already met with Olsen and a member of the school board, and is expected to speak in front of all the officials in the upcoming weeks.
"I want this show to be able to influence people my age, that if you dropped out of high school when you were young it's never too late to go back to get your diploma."
Very true! And we'll admit, he certainly sounds as though he's committed to actually doing it, camera crews or not!
But don't be disappointed if they turn you down, bb!
The well-being of the kids has to come first in these scenarios, and as much as we want to see you succeed, you may have to do so in a night-school setting!
Fingers crossed, either way!
