Justin Bieber is now a high school graduate. The pop star earned his diploma from St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario as one of 192 students in the graduating class. Though Bieber did not attend the school's commencement on June 28th, he is listed in the graduation program among his classmates. The school did not offer more details on Bieber's education or potential upcoming academic plans.

"I just finished high school," the singer told the Daily Telegraph back in May. "I passed my test – I'm free! It was hard doing school and work every day." Bieber will kick off his North American "Believe" tour on September 29th in Glendale, Arizona.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
