(The one guy more excited than Drake to get his high school diploma)
Philly.com – A day after earning his high school diploma, an excited Drake performed hit songs for a few hundred people at an event for Tyra Banks.
The 25-year-old told the crowd Thursday night that he took a small break from music and “spent some time going back to high school.”
“I got my high school diploma,” he said with excitement as the crowd roared.
Drake also posted on Twitter late Wednesday that he earned a 97 percent on his final exam and an 88 percent in his last class through work with a private tutor. The Canadian dropped out of high school, ironically, to star in the high school TV series “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” He played the role of Jimmy Brooks.
How this is even newsworthy is beyond me. You realize you’re talking about getting your fucking HIGH SCHOOL diploma right? I’m pretty sure my family was pissed they even had to go to my graduation. Shit was brutal and I gotta say…I was the least bit proud of myself. It’s high school. Pretty sure they have 7 year olds graduating from high school nowadays. Relax brah. You may have platinum records out the ass, but I was getting my diploma at 18.
What are the chances that if he actually graduated high school normally with everyone else back in the day and had 38 people in the audience with signs, noise makers, megaphones, THE WORKS just screaming at the top of their lungs? Do people do that shit in Canada?
