In between performing and spending time with girlfriend Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber managed to make it through high school as a part of a home school program. ”I passed my test – I’m free,” the 18-year-old singer said in an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph. “It was hard doing school and work every day.”
Justin admits that it was his mother, Pattie Mallette, who served as inspiration to finish school. ”That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her,” he said.
Biebs won’t get to walk across a stage decked out in a cap and gown for an official ceremony, but at least he has his diploma. And, in the slight chance that the the superstar will want to go back to school in the future, he has his diploma to continue. However, he doesn’t seem to plan on it. “”I’ve been able to travel the world,” he said in his interview. “At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I’m really not into that stuff. I like to be out there.” Well, to each his own. Congrats to him for finishing high school though! Photo via Steve Mack/FilmMagic
