Oprah Winfrey Celebrates First Graduating Class of Her School in South Africa

Oprah Winfrey is continuing to change the world with milestone after milestone.

The mogul is currently in South Africa celebrating the graduation of 72 girls from her school for the gifted and underprivileged. Every graduate will be headed to a university around the world, and Oprah couldn't be more proud. She spent $40 million to build the academy back in 2007.

"The pride that I feel today is overpowering," Winfrey reportedly said during the graduation. "I have been on a mission my whole life to be able to give back what I have been given. Today I am fulfilling that mission.

"This class will prove that when you invest in the leadership of girls, you invest in a nation," she continued.

Congrats to all the graduates.

Beyonce, Diddy Design Re-Election Swag For President Obama

Beyoncé was clearly keeping very busy in the weeks leading up to the birth of Billboard record-setting baby Blue Ivy
. Among the projects she participated in is "Runway to Win," in which a number of celebrities and fashion industry icons were tapped to design T-shirts and other swag for President Obama's re-election campaign.

According to New York magazine, the effort was spearheaded by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who wrangled a number of her friends and fashion world peers to design shirts, tote bags, scarves and bracelets for the Obama campaign.

In addition to Beyoncé, Diddy and hip-hip impresario Russell Simmons, others who've thrown in include First Lady Michelle Obama fave designer Jason Wu, as well as Rachel Roy, Narciso Rodriguez, Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg, rag & bone, Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Tory Burch and Tracy Reese.

Beyoncé's effort, designed in conjunction with her mother, Tina Knowles, is a $45 white T-shirt with the phrases "yes we can," "words do inspire" and "transform a nation together," randomly scattered across the front in different fonts. Simmons' and Diddy's shirts have not yet been revealed.

The current fundraiser is a sequel of sorts to a similar campaign in 2008 called "Runway to Change," and the proceeds will go to the Obama Victory Fund. Pre-orders are being taken now and all the items are slated to go on sale online on February 7.

Though much of the attention has been focused on the increasingly nasty battle among a group of Republican politicians fighting to gain their party's presidential nomination, as MTV's Powerof12 has reported in both Iowa
 and New Hampshire
, the Obama re-election campaign is in full gear as well.
