Cleverest Rock Stars In The World

in Education

Have you ever heard of Alicia Keys graduated high school at 16, Lennox gained a prestigious scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music in London; Greg Graffin has a PhD in zoology at Cornell University. They are among the cleverest rock stars of the world.

 

Alicia Keys

Born and raised in New York to become the world’s famous rock star, Alicia Keys graduated from high school at the age of 16. The exceptional academic achievements brought back the singer an immediate scholarship into Columbia University. However, she dropped out after four weeks to pursue music full-time due to her dedication to her music rather than academic interests. In fact, Alicia Keys was introduced to piano at the age of 7 and attended the classical music from Beethoven, Mozart, and Chopin before she wrote her first song "Butterflyz" at 14.
