Flavor Flav pursues high school diploma in new reality TV series

Flavor Flav is coming back to reality TV, but this time it won’t be in search of love.

During a conversation published on Saturday (March 16), the legendary Public Enemy member opened up to TMZ about his journey to finally earning a high-school diploma.

“Some more reality TV coming up for [me] but no dating shows! It’s not the dating show thing, man,” Flav began. “I’m going back to high school to get my diploma! That’s what my show is going to be about. Flavor Flav goes back to high school to get his diploma and I’m getting it for real. Not a GED, bro. I want my diploma.”

Aware that the curriculum has changed quite a bit since he last went to school, he added: “If I want that diploma, it’s just something that I ain’t got no choice but to adapt to.”

During the same chat, Flavor Flav also praised Billie Eilish, who he recently became jewelry twins with earlier this month after he gifted the pop star a Barbie-themed clock chain to match his own.

Earlier this month, the two linked up at the Oscars afterparty hosted by Vanity Fair in Los Angeles, where he came bearing a special gift for the “bad guy” hitmaker.

Wearing a pink and white version of his signature chain adorned with dozens of diamonds, he gave Billie a near-identical piece that featured her name inside the clock pendant.

Per footage from the event, she was stunned by the gift as she flashed a huge smile while holding up the chain for the camera alongside Jon Batiste.

That, however, wasn’t the only piece shiny object the prodigy took home that night as she also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song thanks to “What Was I Made For?” from the Barbie soundtrack.

The 22-year-old is now the youngest artist to win two Oscars after previously taking home the award for the James Bond theme song “No Time to Die” in 2022.
