Mary J. Blige: Howard University Bound?

Is Mary J. Blige heading back to school?

The 39-year-old entertainer has sold over 50 million records, won six Grammy Awards and has released seven multi-platinum records, but the next thing she’s gunning for is a bachelor’s degree!

While chatting with the hosts of Good Morning America last week, Mary mentioned that she’s planning to go back to school and will be joining Howard University’s class of 2014. Mary has since then confirmed the news, stating, “the city of New York gave me my high school diploma … and now Howard University has accepted me.”

Congrats, Mary!!

No offense, but if she had her degree “given” to her, and has obviously been out of school for a while, taking on a college like Howard will definitely be a challenge. But I give my full support lol.

“whitney” at least she is trying and you are never too old to get an education.
what i can’t stand is ignorant sarcastic individuals like yourself, who don’t feel better unless they make snarky comments about someone else. get a life and stop projecting your misery on to others.
Have a nice day.

Good Very very smart,Educating will last forever
while looks will go but so might be a celeb,have milions of dollars but the smartest thing to do with the money is get an education
and FYI ..their was just a 95 year old women who graduated from college.. so no you’re never to old

And all cynics who think that she was only accepted because she’s a celebrity couldn’t be more wrong. Rest assured that she was offered a spot because the board of admissions did not understand estimate her intelligents.
