For a moment, it looked like all you needed to afford a couple semesters at a top private university was to twerk for Juicy J: Earlier today, as HipHopDX reports, the rapper tweeted that he would be "giving out a 50k scholarships to the best chick that can twerk."

Although Juicy J went on to provide formal entry rules, he's since deleted tweets referring to the scholarship. Either the rapper has rescinded the offer, or maybe he's weighing whether twerking should be classified as an academic, athletic or merit-based scholarship. Or maybe he needs to take out a loan from FAFSA first.

On August 27th, the Three 6 Mafia rapper will release a new album, Stay Trippy (which includes a track with A$AP Rocky called "Scholarship"), marking his first solo effort on a major label. You can unlock and stream the record now by tossing virtual stacks at virtual strippers in the ridiculous game "Stay Strippy" over at TheJuicyJ.com.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
