Miley Cyrus Gives Thumbs-Down to Higher Education

Miley Cyrus Gives Thumbs-Down to Higher Education-photo

No doubt we'll be seeing Miley Cyrus a lot over the next four years. But one place you won't be seeing her is in a college classroom.

The Hannah Montana star, who turns 18 in November, has declared that she has no intention of joining the higher educational system anytime soon:

"My sister went to MTSU in Nashville, so I'd probably want to be there with all my friends, but I'm not gonna go to college right now. I am a firm believer that you can go back at any age you want, because my grandma went back to college at 62 years old."

Totally, Miley. Besides, when the time comes, you'll probably have enough money to buy the school of your choice, so admissions shouldn't be a problem.

But maybe, in the meantime, you could at least sign up for an etiquette class or three? Because it really does seem like you could stand to brush up on your manners a little bit.

    I think it's fine she doesn't want to go to college right now. She has a successful career, and doesn't want to put it on hold. A smart decision on her part, especially since she can go back. I don't see why a teen not going to college is news. My brother didn't go, many celebrities, haven't gone. Seriously, no biggie. I mean, Miley tends to get spotlighted for flaws more often... Granted, her messups tend to be rather sexual and inapporpriate, but we wouldn't treat other celebs the same way. Please cut her some slack, atleast. I don't mean to sound rude, but her career is going downhill, littrle kids look up to her and them hearing this is just even more reasons NOT to like her.

    Fair-dos. if i had enough money to live life and not have to worry about having enough money to buy a house or do what ever i wanted, i wouldnt go to college. and im sure the majority of people wouldnt! you may say 'oh i would go' but would you really if you had the money? TBH, im pretty jelous, she can live a sheltered life from the money aspect, she doesnt need to have a job! she can travel the world and do nothing, just live life to the fullest. Miley is exceptionally lucky, and i just hope she knows that. i would! because the point of college is to learn something that will be with you for life, and to make you a better and more smart individual, and even though the cash is an important part of the reasons to go to college is not at all the whole reason.

    ahem, excuse me celebuzz but when exactly did she give a 'thumbs down' to higher education??

    Thank you, she's the 1st child actor or musician who admits they don't want to go to college. Good for her for having that courage. Plus you DON'T go to school for manners, you go to get a good education to get a GOOD paying job to support your family. Since she's got more money then anyone her age will EVER see, there really is no point of her going to school. Point blank!

    i guess u can go bac to college anytime but she should at least before she is 30 like even though she doesnt really need college for the career she is in, it is always good to futhur ur knolledge. going at like 60 isnt very wised because how u take in knowledge at that age is much different from the way u do it at a younger age and by that time u probably cannot even work anymore but to each is own...

    Isn't education supposed to be something helpful in life? Probably for her money is much better than education. Thumbs down! she really doesn't need to go to college. many famous people didn't go to college and their careers have gone great. besides, she has a lot of money and she's doing what she loves.

    Why would she go to college?? the reason WE go to college is to get a better job and make more money. CLEARLY if you have a functioning brain you can tell she needs neither lol.

    I think they meant for the students to wait a year or two not until you are 62... And i know she didn't mean that she would go to college that age.Her career is getting better and better(unfortunately) and it really wouldn't be smart to go to college right now.But when you get older you kind of get ....dumber since brain cells are dying and you can't remember very well so for me it sounds really stupid to go and educate yourself when you are older than 60,although it is nice that she did that.And by the way this "she has express the desire to go to college at some time" does not sound quite right...but what do i know i need a few etiquette lessons(plural not singular) right ? OMG i sincerely apologize I thought you meant me not the commentator....it is funny since i read it a few times...but I didn't realize that and since i judge quick(awful habit)...i kind of messed things up and i can't delete what i wrote earlier...damn it

    I think she's right. Obviously, if she goes to college right now her career would be put on hold. And who knows if she'd be able to amp it back up after that. Sometimes college isn't the best thing to do for certain people. Let's see, even THE JONAS BROTHERS haven't gone to college. So let's not play the blame game here. OMG I love you!! I mean I think it's so unfair that Miley is always the bad influence Like Kevin from JB is 22(?) or something and he's not in college!

    She doesn't need to go to college, especially right now while she's still at the top (might as well milk her popularity while it's hot, b/c I don't know how long she'll last when tweens finally grow out of her and older fans get tired of her). However, she should still learn about personal finance, investing, and some other life skills.

    I suggest the commentator get a few etiquette lesson as well. She is right, she has express the desire to go to college at some time, but there is no need for her to go right away. Many councilors often tell students to hold off college for a later time when they are ready. I think they meant for the students to wait a year or two not until you are 62...

    Yeah you should definitely do it a few years before you die...i mean who needs education..especially Miley?!? (sarcasm) LOl so true,we all kno at some point in her life her career will crash&burn(badly of course)& at that time she'll wish she'd went to college So what if she has 2 give up some time as a celebrity?We all do sacrifices at some point in OUR lives why not her as well?
