Er...Never Mind

2009-09-03 12:37:53.295461+00 by petronius 1 comments

The other day I posted an item about a rap artiste who forced her label to fulfill its contract and pay for her PhD in Psychology. Alas, the story is too good to be true.

A further investigation by Slate turns up the facts that: 1. Shante' never had a contract with that label, 2. She never attended Cornell, the supposed awarder of her doctorate. 3. Her undergraduate institution reports that she dropped out after only 4 months, 4. The state of New York has no record of her as a registerd psychologist or therapist.

Other then those minor points, I stand behind my story.
