10 Male Musicians You Didn’t Know Dropped Out of High School for Fame
Believe it or not, being a celebrity is tough. Sure, the parties and perks are great and all, but there’s also a lot hard work that goes into being famous, especially when you’re young and still in school. People like Sabrina Carpenter and Nick Jonas got their degrees in the midst of fame thanks to homeschooling, but others couldn’t seem to multitask quite as well and decided to drop out of high school.
For these following male celebrities, music was more important than getting a diploma. Some of them tried to do both, but in the end they all decided to put 100 percent into their careers and say goodbye to tests, homework and GPAs. We’ll never say never, but as of right now a LOT of your faves are still known as high-school dropouts.
After auditioning for the The X-Factor at just 16 years old and subsequently joining One Direction, Harry knew he had to dedicate his time to music. Being a member of 1D meant that he would have to drop out of school to pursue his career.
While we normally wouldn't recommend not graduating high school to ANYONE, things are definitely working out for the British babe. Hazza just dropped his first solo single, "Sign of the Times," and will be featured in the upcoming movie, Dunkirk!
