If this scenario, starring one Mary J. Blige, seemed somewhat improbable early Tuesday, by the end of the day it appeared — well, who knows, maybe possible, someday. But not this year.
The buzz got started Friday when Blige performed a Central Park concert for ABC’s “Good Morning America.” After the TV cameras stopped rolling — but the Web videographers in the crowd kept going– she told the crowd her big news: “I never got the chance to graduate from high school, but they gave me my honorary diploma the other day … And I got accepted into Howard University for the class of 2014.” She made a similar comment in an interview published in the New Orleans Times-Picayune the following day.
True? The news seemed to catch Howard, the nation’s premier historically black university, by surprise.
