Ouch! Harvard's Team Leno, Not Team Conan!

Fine way to treat an alum!

Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals has named Jay Leno as their Man of the Year, alongside Julianne Moore, who was named Woman of the Year late last week.

You would think they would want to pick an alum and former editor of the Harvard Lampoon for the esteemed honor, but the pudding peeps think Jay's the better fit as he's “entertained millions of people over his long and accomplished career in comedy."

Whatever, your decision. Just don't be expecting anymore donations from Conan O'Brien!

Attention, College Grads! Justin Timberlake Is Jealous

justin timberlake wishes he went to college

Okay, so you may not be a college grad, Justin, but you did receive Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals Man of the Year award. That's gotta count for something, right?

During the Hasty Pudding press conference, the Social Network star had the following to say about his nonexistent college experience:

"Secretly, I always wanted to go to college, and I didn't get the chance to do that."

You can always go back, Justin!

Talk to James Franco…he'll give you the inside scoop.

Natalie Portman Admits To Gaining "The Freshman 15" While Attending Harvard!

Filed under: Natalie PortmanHealthMental HealthBody

See? The Freshman 15 can happen to anyone - even celebrities!

Natalie Portman recently revealed that she struggled with her weight, as well as some depression, during her first year at Harvard University!

She explains:

"I gained my freshman 15 or 20 and had super-depressed moments. That Cambridge winter is tough. It was important to know how to go through that and how to get myself out of it. You start learning how to ask your friends or professionals for help, or go to mentors."

So very true!

College is such a crazy time of transition for most students, so it's important that she spoke out on her experience, and went about dealing with it in the correct fashion!

There are a lot of resources at your disposal when you're away at school! We're glad that she took advantage of them and stuck it out!

Congrats, bb!

Harvard Gay Hate Crime Now Ruled An Accident!

harvard-library-lgbt-hate-crime-now-labeled-accident-by-university

What the hell?! This is absolutely awful!

About 40 books about gay and lesbian issues were recently reportedly thought to be vandalized in Harvard University's Lamont Library, after security staff discovered them covered in what appeared to be URINE on November 24th!

However, although it was originally being investigated as a hate crime, the university has released a statement claiming that the entire incident was merely an unfortunate accident!

According to an official statement:

The Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) and the College were notified this past Friday by Harvard College Library personnel that 36 books related to gay and lesbian studies were damaged in Lamont Library on November 24, 2010. This incident was initially reported as vandalism and characterized as a hate-crime because of the focused nature and related topics of the damaged books. HUPD has continued to investigate this incident since the initial report and we have learned this morning that the books, while indeed damaged, were damaged by our own library personnel spilling a bottle of what was reported to be urine that had been left on the shelf. I believe this is an important new fact in the investigation and warrants my sharing it with you immediately. While we should not minimize the seriousness of this incident, HUPD is no longer classifying this incident as a hate crime. This nuance in the facts in the case also explains why library personnel did not immediately report the incident and treated it instead as a prank. I am also pleased to report that the Harvard College Library intends to replace all 36 books as soon as possible.

Huh? We're still a little confused on a few issues.

LIKE WHY THERE WAS A BOTTLE OF URINE IN THE LIBRARY!

Not to mention the fact that this accident managed to destroy only LGBT-themed texts, etc.

Something about all of this seems a little shady to us!

We deserve a better explanation, please!

Thoughts??
