Studious Celebs
These celebs are secretly smart.
According to famed attorney and New York Times best-selling author Lisa Bloom, Justin Bieber is setting a bad example for his fans by saying school wasn’t a priority for him and that he only graduated to appease his mother in a recent interview.

“Celebrities have a responsibility to be role models for their millions and millions of fans,” Lisa says “When he says something like that, it creates a terrible example for young people.”

Our Facebook page is blowing up with fans who have some surprising support — for Lisa!
