It's official: JoJo is a husky. The Foxborough-bred pop star, best known for her hits "Leave (Get Out)" and "Too Little Too Late," has reported on her MySpace page that she's chosen to attend Northeastern University this fall.

"In the past week I've taken tours and met with students and professors of other Boston based schools, and now that the time to commit has come, I'm happy with the idea of being a student at Northeastern," she wrote, adding, "My long term goal is to gain a doctorate.... but I gotta take it ONE step at a time!!"

JoJo -- whose real name is Joanna Levesque -- says she'll major in cultural anthropology.

Fans will be happy to hear that the singer has promised that her studies won't stop the music. She's been trying to release another album, but has been held up by record label legal issues, according to her MySpace page. She says she plans to keep recording as she learns.
