The magnificent beam of light that is Michelle Obama brought her enviable brainz to Eastern Kentucky University this past weekend to deliver the 2013 commencement address, and as usual, the First Lady DOMINATED.
Cue to 5:05 and watch Mrs. Obama's inspiring speech (above)!
As is her custom, Michelle's address is peppered with personal examples as a means to strengthen her arguments: arguments of perseverance, community, creativity, compassion and hope.
She challenges the graduates to really consider themselves — who they were as college students, who they are now, and who they want to be in the future.
Oh it makes us feel like we're graduating all over again, sniff!
When 33 members of the senior class of Scripps Ranch High School have to explain to their families why they wouldn't be picking up their diplomas at graduation, they had to refer to Urban Dictionary!
The students were suspended, prevented from walking at graduation, and banned from prom, all for twerking!
Well, that and making a VIDEO of it!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see what got 32 female dancers and one male coach of the "Twerk Team" in trouble!
The students are accused of breaking the school's sexual harassment policy, which according to the SRHS handbook, includes any "verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature made by someone from or in the educational setting."
The punishment is causing quite a bit of controversy, in and out of the high school, and we can see why!
We hate to see kids punished for dancing, but then again this is hardly the plot of Footloose!
