I sometimes see random celebs who decide out of nowhere to attend college after they're big names/ in the midst of fame:

Shakira, Eva Longoria, Wyclef, Julia Stiles, etc..

I understand wanting to further your education and all...but imagine you're a college student and all of a sudden Paris Hilton walks into your class and takes a seat... everyone would be like, "is she kidding? she doesnt need a degree to make money shes richer than necessary already. Is this for attention?". Plus add all the distracting she'd do to the students who really do need their good grades and degrees. And, paparazzi.

just sayin'...

hmm I don't see why anyone of those names would need to go to college

but about Emma Watson, she's attending college now this year and I think she can because she has the age and I've read an interview in which she said she always wanted to go, so why not give her the chance just because she played Hermoine for all these years?

oh yeah the really young celebs I can kinda understand cause they are the ones that if their careers go down (cause chances are they usually dont last)...the money doesnt end up lasting like their careers and you later see them doing something completely non-related to who they were. Its a good backup but if I were famous I think Id consider online classes...but if its working out for Emma, then thats good.

I just have trouble picturing Shakira coming into a class if I were a college student I wouldnt really concentrate if she was there lol.

oh yeah I totally agree on the older celebs :P if they really wanted a uni degree they should have done that instead they got to be famous and sell lots of movies/cd's not everyone of us get that chance lol
I mean you can't get it all in life

and I so understand what you're talking about, it'd be weird sitting next to some bodyguards who're protecting a famous person in class :P

I don't know, I don't think there's anything wrong with someone wanting to further their education. Some people view college as a means to an end, that end being getting a well paying job and being able to support oneself and/or family. But other people view education as learning, enriching your mind, etc. My mom is a person like that. She's getting her Masters and I'm pretty sure she's more excited about going back to school than I was about going to university this fall lol. It's not like she needs it, she has a really good career. But it's just something she wants.

It would be kind of weird to turn around in lecture and see Emma Watson sitting in a lecture, but I doubt Brown students are entirely unfamiliar with that sort of thing. Obviously asking for autographs or calling her hermione would be completely out of the question. But I doubt she'll immerse herself into the school like a "normal" college student anyway. It's not like she'll be living in dorms. She'll probably attend class and leave.

Today, I went shopping at Macy's for swimsuits with my mom. I told my mom that I hated all the suits there, and that I wanted to get them at Dick's Sporting Goods. My mother then said, in a loud voice, "STOP BEING SO OBSESSED WITH DICKS!" Half the store stared at me. FML

I agree with Slice. I think attending college/university shouldn't just mean advancing to get a better job,but learning new interesting things too. I personally study more for personal enrichment than anything :P
But yes,if i sat next to Shakira i'd probably ask her to sing "No" or "Moscas en la casa" to me.
Off topic,but i love her spanish songs so much haha XD

Good point Slice :) Always good to learn no matter who you are or how you much got. I just hope that when celebs do this it isnt for publicity cause they do get the publicity for it lol.

And Jade, dont you think her spanish songs are so much better? I do! Shoot, I too would be asking her to sing me little tunes ..."leh leh loh lehhh" :lol:

Ohh yes,her spanish songs are amazing ! I actually am a huge fan of her spanish-songwriter phase,i have her album "Donde estan los ladrones " and i think it's amazing .She used to be like a latina Alanis Morissette back then, playing the guitar and singing about everyday stuff as well as love and other topics. I don't like her now at all,which is a shame to me,as i used to like her so much before. :(

Anyway...back on topic.... I think some celebs might actually do it for publicity,but speaking of Emma Watson i think she just wants to learn...i don't see her as someone who wants to get a degree because she's scared that her career won't go on. :dunno:
Also,some celebs wento to famous universities even before their big break or while they were proceeding with their careers but weren't "superstars" yet. Natalie Portman has a psychologist degree,i think..and she took it while she was shooting Star Wars if i'm not wrong. You can just have a parallel passion with acting/singing,i bet she didn't do it to become a psychologist. :P

Shewolf...yuck. I too am liking less and less of what is becoming of Shakira lately. My favorite of hers will forever be "Ojos Asi"...I used to listen to "¿Donde Estan Los Ladrones?" too!

And yes, lol, back to topic...yeah I dont see Emma Watson as the type to be trying to get attention. I dont really know her cause Ive only seen like half a Harry Potter movie lol but I never see her in tabloids or anything. Other celebs I do question though.

Hmm I see your point Slice, but I have to agree with Simaholic that for some celebs it's just all wrong because they probably do it for the publicity

but if they really want to learn then I guess it's ok to let them experience this too :)

dont you think her spanish songs are so much better?
Ohhh my god I thought it was just me. I think she sounds really Weird in English. I never really appreciated her as an artist until I actually listened to some of her spanish stuff... and then I was in love. 'No' is suuuuch a good song. I'm still rockin 'La Tortura' too, it's ancient and I don't even care.

AGREE on 'Shewolf'.. after Fijacion Oral I guess I expected fireworks but that song is so underwhelming. And the psuedo howling in the background? What is that? The panting is just trying way too hard! Shakira doesn't need to pant into the mic to be sexy!

Have you heard Nelly Furtado's spanish album? I'm completely torn on it. While I think its decent overall, I don't feel like it really captures the flavor of spanish pop music. It's hard to go from Thalia to Nelly is all I'm sayin!

This post had absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Ummmmmmm....

hahaha, Rita you had me cracking up on what you said about the Shewolf song. I'm just picturing the woman panting into the mic and it has me giggling here. I dont remember the song enough though, thank god.

I never really heard Nelly Furtado's spanish music before! Any suggestions on what song I should listen to?

Well she just came out with an album .. Mi Plan.. I remember thinking Manos Al Aire and Silencio are the best ones. But honestly I don't think she's as good as Shakira or Thalia, on this album at least. I dunno though, maybe I should give it another shot. Sometimes just your mood or something can influence your opinion on an album so much.. I should try it again and see if I feel any different. Let me know your thoughts on it if you ever get a chance to listen! :)

I previewed them on gomusic.ru and they dont seem so bad. It's hard for me to get into spanish music though. I have to be in a "special" mood lol
