We guess Michelle Obama really meant it when she said that she found Beyonce to be a "role model who kids everywhere can look up to" on her Twitter page!

Why, you ask?

Because

Cincinnatti High School Paying Kids To Come To Class

Filed under: School

cincinnatti-high-school-paying-students-to-go-to-school-web.jpg

Dohn High School in Cincinnatti is pulling out all the stops to get their kids to school.

The attendence and graduation rates for the school are abysmal. Last year only 14 percent of students graduated and most of the students are very poor.

The $40,000 incentive program rewards seniors with $25 Visa gift cards for attending class (on time) and staying out of trouble. Underclassmen get $10 gift cards. Good students also receive $5 in a savings account.

School CEO Ken Furrier brushes criticism aside, believing he and his staff are on the right track:

Our student population is 90 percent poverty. Money is important to them. We can’t teach them if they’re not here.

I think the thing that many parents have to realize is that these kids arev ery poor. They don’t have all the benefits suburban kids have.

The new program has 15 percent spike in attendence but is still classified as an "emergency school."

Do U think this program is a good idea?

Whitney Houston Will Be Buried On Sunday

Houston Buried Sunday

After all the goodbyes have been said, Whitney Houston will be laid to rest on Sunday.

She will be buried in a plot adjacent to her late father, John Russell Houston, who died in 2003, at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, NJ.

All of this is happening just one day after Houston's funeral service at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ, where Houston grew up singing as a little girl.

Many of her friends and family and colleagues will be in attendance. We've already seen Ray J and Kevin Costner on their way.

Rest in peace, Whitney!

We're glad to hear that they were able to put their differences aside for the sake of this.

Although several of Whitney Houston's family members were opposed to having Bobby Brown at her funeral tomorrow in New Jersey, as many believe him to be responsible for the icon's descent into substance abuse, they've formally invited him to attend at the last minute!

Chris Brown Attending His First Grammy Awards Since Beating Rihanna

Chris Brown is coming back to the Grammy Awards!

The singer is nominated for Best R&B album, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song, but he hasn't made an appearance at the awards ceremony since he was arrested the night before in 2009, when he viciously assaulted his then-girlfriend, Rihanna!
