Driving a Barbie Jeep as your main mode of transportation? Cool.

Driving a Barbie Jeep as your main mode of transportation because you got a DWI and your Daddy took your car away? Not cool.

A student at Texas State is making unwarranted waves on the internet after photos of herself driving around in a children's Power Wheels toy went viral.

Apparently, an Industrial Engineering major named Tara Monroe lost her license this past March after refusing to take a breathalyzer test following a Waka Flocka concert, but has since been living her 15 minutes of fame.

While we do see the humor in a grown 20-year-old woman getting from class-to-class in a vehicle designed for a toddler, we can't get past the fact that everyone is praising her for it despite the fact that she's only doing so because of her DWI!

Her only other options would be to walk or ride a bicycle… and who'd want that, right?

Check yo' privilege, kids!

| Filed under: InspirationModelsCharityEducationalSchoolInstagramKarlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss is such an inspiration!

Awww! We're so proud!

On Wednesday, former Victoria's Secret supermodel Karlie Kloss didn't hit the runway. Instead, she hit the books, beginning her first day of school at New York University.

The blonde beauty revealed she was ending her time with VS back in February so she could focus on her education, and believe it or not, even supermodels get first-day jitters!

Karlie took to instagram to share this exciting photo (above) of her first day at the prestigious university, but revealed in the caption that she's not as calm, cool, and collected as she seems, writing:

"…I haven't been this nervous in years! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ“šโœ๏ธ #firstdayofschool"

Aww Karlie, don't be nervous! You've done SO much!

In fact, just last week she teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to allow two girls — Shannon and Maddie — to live their dreams of becoming models.

Sadly, the girls have been diagnosed with "life-threatening medical conditions," but Karlie granted their wishes by giving them AHmazing makeovers! Ch-ch-check out their gorgeous shot (below)!

Julianne Moore Is Petitioning To Change The Name Of Her High School Honoring A Confederate General!

| Filed under: PolitikJulianne MooreOscarsSchool

Julianne Moore is putting her foot down!

Recently, the actress — along with friend and producer Bruce Cohen — created a change.org petition to rename their alma mater — J.E.B. Stuart High School — in Fairfax County, VA.

The school — founded in 1959 — was named after the Confederate general who fought to keep African Americans enslaved.

According to their petition, which has already racked up over 29,000 signatures:

"No one should have to apologize for the name of the public high school you attended and the history of racism it represents, as we and so many alumni of Stuart have felt the need to do our whole lives."

The moniker is only made worse by the school's symbol: an image of Stuart waving the Confederate flag atop a horse.

Instead, the Oscar winner believes her education center should be named after civil rights leader and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

In a statement, she exclaimed:
