As proud as we all were to hear that Mary J. Blige was accepted to Howard University after earning her high school equivalency diploma, HU has issued a statement stating, "We encourage Ms. Blige to continue her studies and welcome her consideration of Howard University in the future." In other words, MJB is not accepted to Howard, nor is anyone sure if she actually applied since Howard acknowledged that they "are happy to work with Ms. Blige on completing the formal process for admission." Here's to hoping that this was not a Roxanne Shanté situation in the making. You know we will always have love for you, Mary. Good luck with your future matriculation along some institution's hallowed halls.
