The end of the school year is usually chock full of fun activities like field day, picnics, ice cream socials, and prom! But unfortunately, the fun for some can be overshadowed by the anticipation of receiving the dreaded report card.
Since most of us have endured — or continue to endure — the grading process, we've taken it upon ourselves to see how the stars measured up in a few celebrity "classes." Several passed with flying colors, while others need to try a little harder next year! See who made the grade.
Anna gets an A+ for social media because her Twitter is hilarious and packed with zingers. So much so that she scored a book deal this year — hence the high mark in English. We had to give her a minus for a couple of comments in her press release, though, which asked, "Are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon?" It was obviously a joke, but we want to encourage Anna to show off her verbal prowess! As for music class, she's proven she has vocal range in movies such as Pitch Perfect 2, Into the Woods, and The Last Five Years. And when it comes to her sassy personality, well, we just can't get enough of it. Go to the head of the class, Anna.
What a year it's been for Kylie Jenner! The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner crew skyrocketed to the forefront of everyone's feed this year, which earns her an A- in publicity. But her often bizarre and straight-up concerning Instagram posts (like that mysterious chicken Snapchat video) make it seem as though she's desperate for attention, which is why she is only getting a C in social media. Kylie is also known for her style, but her wardrobe has definitely started to emulate Kim Kardashian's. She's nearly the spitting image of her older half-sister. She looks good, but we'd like for her to forge her own fashion path. And while she's got a flair for applying makeup, she gets an F in cosmetology for inspiring kids to take part in that asinine lip challenge. That was a #fail.
Taylor Swift has one of the highest GPAs at Celeb School. She actually interacts with her fans on Tumblr (who does that?), and she has more friends than she can count on all of her appendages (although we could count her 25 besties). Talk about Miss Popularity! As for her animals, we know she loves her cats — but how about that time one of her kitties scratched her insured legs? And Calvin Harris's cat allergy? Those two headline-making events dropped her down to an A- in animal studies. Speaking of Harris, Swift and the DJ appear to be going strong, but we don't know how serious it is... yet. Taylor still has a little more to learn about romantic relationships, which is why she gets a B in the love department. We strongly believe she can bump this grade up to a B next year.
Justin Bieber gets an A for effort, because he really, really tried to improve his image this year. Sure, his never-ending apology tour became a little trite after awhile, but we've gotta give the kid some credit. After all, his Comedy Central roast proved he was willing to take more than a few knocks (even from Martha Stewart). And he earned an A in phys ed is for... well, um, did you see those Men's Health pictures? The guy's in shape.
Miley Cyrus crushed it this year with her progressive statements. She went where others celebs would not dare, proudly flashing her armpit hair and declaring she's not interested in traditional gender roles or labels. But when she wasn't taking a political stance, Miley was making us laugh with her Photoshopped pics on Intagram. They aren't the best technically speaking, but they sure are funny (and at times a bit off-putting). That's why she gets a B in art. But her biggest achievement this year was launching the Happy Hippie Foundation, which rallies young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations. Miley is a love-her-or-hate-her kind of girl, but you can't deny she's come a long way since wagging her tongue alongside Robin Thicke at the 2013 VMAs (although, she still has it in her — the Adult Swim upfront bash proved she still could shock and awe). And while we won't ever slight Miley for being a "Happy Hippie," we'll politely remind her that it's not exactly safe to swap spit with a whole bunch of people. Mono is still a thing.
Rihanna knocked it out of the park at the 2015 Met Gala, where she was the only documented person to actually wear a Chinese designer to the Chinese-themed event. The singer was provocative all year (topless shots, anyone?) and generally badass — as per usual — but none of her badassery inhibited her from being a good friend. She took a time out from fame, cranking out killer jams, and provoking the often-titillated general public to serve as a bridesmaid in her pal's wedding. Straight As for Badgalriri!
Lena Dunham is pretty damn great with animals. She recently started posting dogs up for adoption on Instagram, demonstrating her compassion for canines. If you haven't already started following her pup Lamby on Instagram, you totally should. Dunham also knows what's up when it comes to social media — whether you're a fan of her at times controversial gender politics or not. And while haters are vocal about not wanting to see Lena strip down on Girls, she couldn't care less. But the feminist is definitely making fitness a priority and let us know she had amped up her exercise regime this year — from Instagramming the psychological perks of working out to posting insane acro-yoga poses to not giving the "I forgot my workout clothes" as an excuse for skipping her the gym. And that's all without even mentioning her work ethic, which speaks for itself. Lena is an honors student.
Chrissy Teigen kills it at social media — her Twitter is funny and very tongue-in-cheek, and her Instagram makes everyone green with envy. She schools us all in home cooking with her blog, Delushious, too. But her biggest achievement this year was spreading a message about body positivity. She Instagrammed a photo of her stretch marks ("strechies say hi!" she captioned it), proving that even models have 'em and they're nothing to be embarrassed about. To top things off, she even swore she'd stop airbrushing her Instagram photos. Embrace yourself!
While Kanye rarely smiles — "It just wouldn't look as cool," he told ET — it looks lke he did show his pearly whites a little bit more this year. But smiling or not, he has certainly upped his game in the romance department. Something about being married to Kim Kardashian really brings out the best in him! (Did you see that tweet?) We've also got to give him props for his honorary doctorate degree, but it must be noted that his greatest area of expertise will always be in one thing and one thing only: Kanye West.
