UPDATE, Feb. 9, 2012, 1:30 p.m.: Mary Platt, Director of Communications and Media Relations at Chapman University, says the rumor that Miley Cyrus is going to be studying at Chapman is just a rumor–and it's not true.
“Miley Cyrus is not coming here, she's never applied and it's an Internet hoax. It happened last year and the year before that–and it was the same lovely day for our staff trying to deny it all day,” Platt said.
Original Post, Feb. 9, 2012, 12:59 p.m.: Is Miley Cyrus going to Chapman University this year? The Dirty Army gossip blog is saying so, going by the anonymous letter from someone who works at Chapman's admission office.
hat person said, “So the one and only Miley Cyrus will be attending our great school, I checked the birthdays and they matched. So unless there is another Miley Cyrus running around SoCal with the exact same name and birthday I'm positive I will be seeing her on campus.”
As expected, there was all kinds of conjecture in the comments section, from snarky to Chapman loyalists fiercely defending the liberal arts school of choice.
A comment by Chapman University PR on the Dirty Army blog says, “We can confirm that this rumor is not true. Ms. Cyrus has not enrolled at Chapman University. This rumor came up last year as well, and was as untrue then as it is now.” But because we're a legit news outlet, we called Chapman U ourselves and tried to get the real deal.
