Unfortunately for the students, you don't kid a kidder!
When Amy finally gave her acceptance speech, she zinged them right back, saying:

Neil Patrick Harris never even went to college, but he’s now a Harvard University award winner!
NPH was named the 2014 Man of the Year from America’s oldest theater troupe. But before you go and think the prestigious institution would hold a pretentious ceremony for the occasion, think again!
In order to received his golden Hasty Pudding Pot, Neil had to first dress up in a wig, lingerie and red high-heels, all while being accompanied by some student cross dressers! Harris even gave one of the drag dudes a big wet kiss while up on stage!
Considering he’ll be playing the lead in the upcoming Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, heels ain’t no problem for Neil! He even told the crowd:

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most successful people on the planet, so it is no surprise that one of the most esteemed universities in the country—Harvard University— invited the fa-bu-lous O to speak to the graduating class of smarty pants this year!
It was announced this morning that the talk show host, entreprenuer, entertainer, and philanthropist will be Harvard's principal speaker at the Ivy league's 362nd commencement ceremony on May 30 during "afternoon exercises."
Along with the announcement on the Harvard Gazette's website, President Drew Faust wrote:

Color us super jealous! No doubt her speech is going to be HIGHlarious!
The prestigious Harvard University has had many great artists and famous faces speak at their previous commencement ceremonies and adding her name to the ranks is SNL alum Amy Poehler, who has been selected by the class of 2011 to speak at their graduation.
Amy grew up in the Boston area and will undoubtedly make sure her accent is in rare form for the event. Hopefully, she'll remember not to pahk her cah to fah from Havard Yahd. It's a bitch of a walk! LOLZ!
Congrats, Amy! Hopefully they'll put your bit on Youtube so we can hear your speech too!

Well deserved! We'll clap for this!
Harvard University announced this morning that Colombian singer, songwriter, and philanthropist Shakira has been named their 2011 Artist of the Year by the school's foundation. Gorgeous!
S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, released a statement, explaining their choice, saying:
“The students and faculty of the Harvard Foundation are honored to present multiplatinum artist Shakira with the 2011 Artist of the Year award. Her contributions to music and distinguished history of creativity have been applauded by people throughout the world, and she is greatly admired worldwide for her humanitarian efforts through her Barefoot Foundation.”
Honestly, she is such a beautiful person, inside and out. They really couldn't have picked anyone better to honor.
Shakira will be awarded the foundation’s most prestigious honor at the annual Cultural Rhythms award ceremony on Feb. 26.
Congrats, BB! Put it right next to all your Grammys!
