Non-Twerking Recipient Wins Juicy J’s $50,000 Scholarship

Back in August of 2013, Juicy J announced a $50,000 “twerking” scholarship. Although the broadcast seemed to be untrue, we all later learned that the Memphis rapper was indeed going to follow through with a generous award for any college-bound girl who could convince him she needs it the most.

Shortly after the announcement, Juicy J spoke with XXL and cleared up some misconceptions about the scholarship and the reasons that he wanted to donate money.

“You don’t have to be able to twerk to win this $50,000 dollar scholarship.” Juicy told us about the scholarship. “Just submit a video telling me “Why do you deserve this $50,000 dollar scholarship?” It’s not all about dancing and twerking. It’s about your personality. So I want people to know that if you want to twerk that’s on you but you don’t have to do that to win that scholarship. You can just send me a video of showing me how smart you are or what your goals in life are for me to give you this money. It’s for people who use their brains, too.”

Today, Juicy announces the winning recipient: Zaire Holmes, a mom who majors in Biology, and guess what? She didn’t have to twerk. Instead, she read the rules correctly and put her best foot forward in explaining why she thinks she most deserves the scholarship, which will now help pay for her lab expenses.

Congrats! Check out Zaire’s reaction when she’s presented with her check up top.

    good for her

  • YungSauce

    Single mother with big titties. What a surprise.

    • Tatyana

      She’s intelligent. She is a biology student and did not twerk to get this. What does this have to do with anything? I have large breasts too, I suppose that means my gpa shouldn’t be so high then?

      • YungSauce

        Being a single mother that young shows poor judgment. That is a better indicator of intelligence than GPA, which anyone can do well in school by simply doing the work.

        High GPA =/= intelligence and I don’t give a chit about your breasts, Lisa.

          What exactly is wrong with being a young mother? My cousin was on birth control and using a condom when she got pregnant with her son at 18, and showed great judgement in deciding that promoting life is better than an abortion. Something only someone with life inside of them would understand. Nothing wrong with people who get abortions I guess, not my cup of tea, but don’t call those who appreciate life “bad people”. You were once a baby too, and you wouldn’t be here if someone aborted you.

          • Em

            Or rather, “Stupid people”. My point is… Do you have any idea how many people I know with a high GPA who shoot heroin, steal from people, and don’t have children? Your stereotype is stupid.
