Flavor Flav Is Coming Back To TV! And Heading To High School!

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.

He explains:

"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!

Thoughts??

  1. 1

    totally irresponsible - superintendent sounds like a smart lady. Celebrities and camera's don't belong in classrooms



  2. 2

    Don't the schools have enough Crack-Head Drop-Outs that want to be RAP STARS already?



  3. 3

    Flav has lived for many years in NY, so this whole Let's send Flavor Flav to lily-white Iowa idea seems a little suspect.
    What next, send "New York" to Cedar Rapids?



  4. 4

    Okay well….this is crap because Flava Flav went to Adelphi University for like a week after high school so he obviously already graduated high school…what will they think of next.

  5. SF90 says – reply to this

    Didn't Tommy Lee do something similar a couple of years ago?



  6. 6

    I'm sure he is real committed. But I bet that commitment would go away if the cameras weren't there. How Lame!



  7. 7

    Yes, it IS too late to get your diploma. Surely they have a GED program in Iowa. I am a GED teacher and Flav's more than welcome to enroll in my classes.

    My area is just getting more and more interesting… first his fried chicken resteraunt, now a reality TV show.
    Not to mention the movie 'Cedar Rapids' coming out, even though it wasn't filmed there…
    And, of course, the 'Kanye West moves to Spillville, IA' thing from a while ago.
    What's with the sudden interest in NE Iowa? Not that I'm complaining, but still… weird.



  9. 9

    Omg its the reality version of "Strangers with Candy", brilliant!



  10. 10

    Oh god. Can't we just get another season of Flavor of Love? Now THAT was entertaining!
