Lauryn Hill had a concert in Atlanta last Friday (May 6), and was over two hour late taking the stage. This sent Atlanta concert goers into a frenzy and the social media bashing began. Hill has addressed the situation in a lengthy Facebook post.
“I don’t show up late to shows because I don’t care,” Ms. Lauryn Hill wrote. “And I have nothing but Love and respect for my fans. The challenge is aligning my energy with the time, taking something that isn’t easily classified or contained, and trying to make it available for others. I don’t have an on/off switch. I am at my best when I am open, rested, sensitive and liberated to express myself as truthfully as possible.”
Hill has been late to numerous performances over the years, including this years’ Grammy’s, which Hill decided to skip altogether. Peep the full apology below:
