Justin Bieber is a 2012 grad! Yup, the Biebz just finished high school and here you thought he was spending all his time singing and touring and canoodling with Selena. Turns out he was fitting in plenty of studying and schoolwork in the midst of being an international superstar.
Justin may not have been able to sit in class each day at St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford, Ontario, but he still did the necessary work to get his diploma from the school. 191 students also graduated from there this year, so you can’t help but wonder what it’d be like to say, “I graduated with Justin Bieber.” Oh, man, imagine the high school reunions!
Justin’s been involved with Get Schooled, and now that he’s got a diploma in his hands, he can be an even bigger influence there. It was one thing for him to talk about school when he hadn’t graduated, but now that he’s got the big piece of paper, he shows that he talked the talk and walked the walk.
“I’m looking forward to influencing others in a positive way,” he said to Get Schooled. “My message is you can do anything if you just put your mind to it. I grew up below the poverty line; I didn’t have as much as other people did. I think it made me stronger as a person it built my character. Now I have a 4.0 grade point average and I want to go to college and just become a better person.”
While you're at it JB, we hope you continue to drop the best singles of your career! Yeah, we went there. His songs "Boyfriend" and "As Long As You Love Me" are on anotha level. And maybe with his fancy, new diploma we'll continue to see Bieber put out his best work.
