Sip your frappuccino over one of these hot topics this morning: We're proud of 2010 ESSENCE Music Festival headliner Mary J. Blige for getting her GED. The singer recently announced that she's headed to Howard University, though the HBCU has not confirmed that she will attend. Lebron James will finally announce his basketball career plans. Good thing we didn't hold our breath. Plus, guess which star from "A Different World" is 41 today.
