We know her as the queen of hip-hop soul, but could we also know her as a Howard University student soon? You heard me right…Mary J. Blige announced Friday that she has been accepted to the Mecca, ABC7 reported. After her performance on Good Morning America, she explained that she was all set to be a member of the class of 2014.
However, Howard University has yet to confirm any of these details. In a statement from the school, the spokesperson said, “we encourage Ms. Blige to continue her studies and welcome her consideration of Howard University in the future. We are happy to work with Ms. Blige on completing the formal process for admission.”
Blige did recently attain her GED, so perhaps higher education could be in her near future. I’m all for it, whether it’s Howard or not, a few textbooks never hurt anyone (even though I have to be somewhat partial to Howard, as it’s my alma mater). Whatever you decide Mary, we support you, and of course we’ll keep listening!
