You Can Be Beyoncé For $145

We went to the Carl Weathers School of Acting, so we're not ones to talk. But, we're not sure how much you can learn in a one-day class with Mathew Knowles, who's best known for bringing Beyoncé and Solange Knowles into the world.
To be fair, he's done more than that: Dad managed Beyoncé's career to the top until she moved on in 2011, so he's not the most unqualified person to talk about making it in the music industry. And, that's probably why Houston Community College Central wanted him to teach a course called "The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?"
The seven-hour boot camp-style class is meant for aspiring entertainment hopefuls of all kinds — "singers, dancers, composers, writers, producers, managers, technicians, publicists, attorneys, financial planners, accountants" — and teaches what it took Knowles "20 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars to learn," according to the class description. This includes just 20 steps to getting a record deal and business and legal tips you'll need once you're actually in. If you can get in.
It's not that we don't believe dreams made of glitz and glamour can come true. We just don't know you can be taught how to make them come true in seven hours. Anyone want to audit the class and prove us wrong? (Perez Hilton)
