Cody Simpson: Singer, musician, ‘DWTS’ alum, all-around hottie… and now he has two more accomplishments to add to that list — high school graduate and valedictorian!
That’s right, Angels: Cody graduated at the top of his class last night (May 22), proudly posing in his cap and gown and making a moving speech for all of his fellow graduates. Somehow, among making albums, touring, and competing on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ Cody found the time to graduate with the highest honor — and it’s because he values education and intelligence above all.
“It’s always in here that is going to get you the furthest,” he said during his valedictorian speech, pointing to his head. “Intelligence is the sexiest thing in the entire world.”
Before his speech, Cody took to Twitter to tell his followers and fans the same sentiment, writing:
Ladies and gentlemen, intelligence will always remain the sexiest thing in the world above all. don't forget it

Cody’s lil’ sis Alli posted a clip of his speech to Instagram, captioning the black and white vid: “So my brother graduated tonight – his speech was inspiring, never been so happy for and proud of an individual, love you brother,” she wrote. “Let’s celebrate.”
And celebrate they should — this is a huge accomplishment. Congratulations, Cody!
