After a week of back and forth speculation, it’s official. Mary J Blige will not be a part of Howard University‘s Class of 2014.

Even though Mary tweeted earlier in the week that she had her acceptance letter on her wall, one of her representatives told US Magazine that she will not be attending the HBCU.

“Howard University came to her and expressed interest in having her as a student but she will not be attending,” the rep explained to US Magazine. “Even if she won’t be matriculating at the Washington, D.C. school, the Grammy winner will look online to see what courses and other options are available.”
