Mary J. Blige's Howard University Mix-up

Something rather strange is going on and either Mary J. Blige or Howard University is lying. Well, you see, Mary performed a concert on “Good Morning America” where she excitedly told the audience she was set to attend Howard University: “As you know I never got a chance to finish high school but they gave me my honorary degree the other day ... and I've been accepted into Howard University, the class of 2014!”
However, now a representative for the University issued a statement denying her claims. The statement reads: “We encourage Ms. Blige to continue her studies and welcome her consideration of Howard University in the future. We are happy to work with Ms. Blige on completing the formal process for admission."
The institution previously refused to speak on her admission to the University because the information is considered “classified” but later released the formal statement denying her claims. Mary has since taken to her Twitter to defend herself and posted a series of tweets saying,

This situation is strange to say the least...but someone is lying. I don't see why someone would have to lie about being accepted to a university. And isn't Mary to old to be telling tales anyways? We'll see what happens with this.
