lauryn hill is one of my favorite artists.
i bumped TMEOLH for a year straight.
i may need to bump it for another year.
sadly for one of my favs,
her personal life has been a hot ass mess.
the drama at her concerts.
looking like a bad lady.
lauryn recently had to go to court for not filing her tax returns.
1 mill ya’ll.
the judge decided her fate yesterday and well…
Lauryn Hill was sentenced today to three months in prison and three months of home confinement with electronic monitoring for not reporting more than $2.3 million in income by intentionally failing to file tax returns for five years.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo two weeks ago set a deadline for today for Hill to come up with $514,000 that she still owed the government. Her attorney, Nathan Hochman, said she paid her debt, along with fines, interest and restitution totaling nearly $970,000.
However, the government put her tax liability at more than $1 million, CLIFFVIEWPILOT.COM reported.
The 37-year-old Grammy winner — who on Friday released a new single, “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” — had paid roughly $50,000 when Arleo set the deadline two weeks ago. READ MORE ….
damn 3 months in jail and then another in home confinement.
why do these artists always have tax issues?
who handles their business?
lauryn just takes hit after hit.
i doubt i’ll ever get this back:
she did put a new song recently up on itunes.
she takes a shot at the whole world.
it’s called neurotic society (compulsory mix):
lowkey: i loved this speech she gave these high school students in 2000.
please take a moment to check this out:
“i am not a good speaker,
but when i pray to god,
he gives me the words to say…”
i relate heavy.
that’s how i am with my writing on this site.
but marinate on this:
“until you conquer the enemy within yourself,
you can’t deal with anyone.
in order to be used by god,
you need to be used…
sometimes in order to be used,
you also have to humiliated.
you have to be kicked and beaten.
in that situation the person who is kicking and beating,
they are feeling more pain than you are.”
