And it only took her 25 years. That's less time than most Farkers spend in grad school, I guess.

Zappa would most definitely approve, after his own experiences with Warner. you can hear the story in Joe's Garage, fyi.

I love what Prince did when he wanted out of his contract. Changed his name to that symbol that no one could pronounce, then went on to release a series of "experimental" albums that you had to be high on heroin to enjoy.

scottydoesntknow: Pretty smart. Odds are she also signed up for residential housing, making the recording company pay for that. Plus meal plans and anything else she could put on the college credit plan. Four free years, paid for by the company that initially screwed her, and she comes out on top at the end.

Umm.. I think it probably took more than 4 years. Doctorates usually do. And ALL of it was free, hence the whole "for life" bit.

The education clause, as the article says, was probably a clause the record company wasn't really expecting to be cashed in on, but was probably a good motivator to the parents, who would have to be party to the contract considering her age at the time.

Good for her!

I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop on "artists" like Soulja Boy and Rick Ross. I cannot wait for the MC Hammer treatment for these no-talent assclowns for killing hip-hop.

Asa Phelps: PhD in psychology? Well, she's qualified to manage a pizzahut. If she can pass the pizzahut management exam, at least.

In your very own way, you're the shining silver lining of stupid. Good for a laugh, but even better, someone who we can point at and tell kids 'see that guy? Don't be like him'.

LOL you're a fool. Her opportunities are endless. You sound uncomfortable with a black woman getting a higher eduation. OR can't handle that one like herself is more educated than you are, clearly.

I know it's late, but if you don't become The Librarian, you don't get the cool chick in the end.
