Model Student: Tyra Banks to Graduate from Harvard Business School!

Tyra Banks has always been fierce, but soon the model-TV personality-producer-author-entrepreneur can add another line to her résumé: Harvard Business School graduate.

On Valentine's Day, Banks sat down for a 90-minute conversation with Harvard Business School's associate dean, Youngme Moon. During her candid, 90-minute chat, as excerpted by The Harbus, the school's independent newspaper, the media mogul explained why she enrolled in the school's Owner/President Management Program.

"There's a difference between a career and a business," she explained. "I'm not looking to build a company based on fans." Rather, she hopes to run a strategic operation that promotes her beliefs and simultaneously turns out a profit.

She admitted that in her working life, she's not as tough as she appears to be on America's Next Top Model. "[I] would love to have her in the boardroom," she says of the character she's created for the reality show. "I wish I was hard...I have armor, but a strategic knife can still get in those creases."

Looks like Banks is tough enough for the Ivy League

And as the 38-year-old nears completion of her HBS education, she's learned that success is "not about being the biggest, but being the best."

"Don't chase the money, even if you want to be a banker," she advised business up-and-comers. "Chase the passion. Chase the dream."

Now that's what we call a good financial model.

Concert Promoters Kidnapped In Africa Due To Nas No-Show Finally Set Free

The concert promoters who found themselves kidnapped and stuck in Angola after Nas failed to show up for a concert have been finally let go, reports TMZ.

Patrick Allocco and his son (his namesake) were involuntarily kicking it in Angola for almost two months before they were released today. "An order was entered today by Angolan authorities lifting the travel ban which prevented [Patrick] and his son from leaving the country for 49 days after [Nas] failed to show for a New Year's Eve concert," said Allocco's rap in a statement.

The Alloccos were escorted by US Embassy officials to the airport, where they caught a flight to Lisbon. The Jersey natives are expected to arrive in Newark Airport on Satursday (February 18).

"We are relieved that this nightmare is over and are looking forward to coming home to our family and friends who have supported us with their prayers and optimism during this ordeal," added Allocco's rep.

As for Nas, he paid back the money he was advanced weeks ago. However, Esco has plenty of problems stateside since he owes the IRS over $6 million in taxes

Dame Dash Takes DD172 To Asia

Once the money counting sidekick of Jay-Z and co-founder of the Roc-A-Fella legacy, Damon Dash has made a 172-degree switch in careers. Three years ago Dash started DD172, an organization comprised of every artistic angle feasible, yet residing on a semi-musical foundation. The company came complete with a Dash Gallery, where artists, photographers, musicians, and everything in between could showcase their work and thus further Dash's migration from the streets to the museums. Now all of that is flying to Hong Kong.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Dash will be working with Chong Kwong-yan aka Asian rapper MC Yan, along with American turned Asian resident Shelly Pecot, who was Dash's neighbor in New York City. Shelly was the ultimate catalyst for the Asian Invasion, as Dash suggested she scope out the music scene in Hong Kong for opportunities and set up shows. Once Dash flew over to Hong Kong, he fell in love. Likewise, he brought primarily Asia-touring artists to the U.S. “The point of these shows – these collaborations – is to bridge the gap between Western and Eastern music,” Dame told WSJ. “Music can break any barrier, be it cultural or language.”

The next step obviously includes starting an Asian chapter of the Dash Gallery, which Pecot and MC Yan are working on. Due to stringent rules of bidding on space, that process is the hardest. However, taking cues from New York City's sudden fascination with pop-up stores, the two will continue that trend over in Asia as well.

While Damon Dash isn't the first to fuse American Hip-Hop with Asian aesthetics (read: Kanye West and Murakami), he is making great strides by re-building an entire movement there.
