Howard University students look out: Mary J. Blige may show up in your next college Algebra class -- and ask for help with homework.
Last Wednesday, the R&B singer made an announcement on ABC's "Good Morning America" that she plans on joining Howard's class of 2014, according to Dcfab.thefabempire.com. She wants to earn a Bachelors degree. She confirmed that Howard accepted her to NOLA.com:
"The city of New York gave me my high school diploma ... and now Howard University has accepted me."
Entertainment website Gossiponthis.com says the Grammy Award Winning singer has already been accepted to the school after receiving her GED diploma.
Blige dropped out of high school during her junior year, according to Starpulse.com. Ambition, however, is definitely not something Blige is lacking. The singer has earned herself six Grammy Awards and seven multi-platinum records.
