Miranda Cosgrove talks about having a private tutor and how she intends to complete her GED and hopes to go to NYU. She did voice work for the upcoming movie Despicable Me. Source
“I’ve had the same on-set tutor since I was 8. I didn’t mind in middle school–but when I got to high school, I started to think, “Oh, I don’t want to miss out.” So I’ve tried to do some of the things. I crashed my neighbor’s prom. Last minute, her date didn’t end up going, so I went. It was funny–during the slow dance, nobody was on the dance floor. Everybody bailed.”Source
How is this chick only 16?! I thought she was in her late 20s?! Once again, what the fuck are kids being fed these days?
