These ‘Dumb’ Celebrities Are Actually Really Smart

Being a celebrity isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, there’s the fame and the money, but more often than not you’re subjected to intense scrutiny. As an actor, you take your parts where you can get them — but it can come at a price.

The lines between fiction and reality are often blurred, and before you know it you’re widely thought to be as dumb as a rock. It could be thanks to a certain role you play or just public bias. In some cases, this couldn’t be further than the truth. These “dumb” celebrities are actually really smart.

When Kesha burst onto our radar she looked like the ultimate party girl. “Tik Tok” showed us a confident blonde songstress that seemed to know how to have fun. When it was revealed that she dropped out of high school and later got her GED, people assumed Kesha was no academic.

In reality, Kesha was just about to graduate and had planned to study psychology and religion at Barnard College when she dropped out to focus on music. She took the SATs and reportedly got a staggering 1,500 — just 100 points below a perfect score. Over the last few years, she’s faced things no woman should have to face but continues to be a force to be reckoned with.
