While we’ve waited years for the return of Lauryn Hill (even putting our wait for Amy Winehouse to shame), it seems the singer/rapper is still not playing with a full deck. Fans have been disappointed for the second time in a month when she recently kept an audience waiting three hours for her entrance and changing her familiar songs with all new musical arrangements.
Hill, seen above on New Year’s Eve in New York City, recently had a concert in Atlanta last Friday. Despite her posted stage time of 9 pm, she didn’t hit the stage until midnight and told the crowd that she was tired of “playing the same music night after night.” Bitch, write new SONGS! Put out another album! Do something new!
And the crowd was totally confused…
One fan told the Sandrarose.com blog, “Nobody could participate because NOBODY knew the music! Everybody was looking around like ‘What Song Is This?’
“It was new music completely. The lyrics were the same, but you had to be on ecstasy to follow the music!… Everybody just stood there with their arms folded. It was a waste of money, and a waste of time. If she did another show in Atlanta, no one would come!”
A number of fans booed, many walked out and the rest probably told all their friends that Lauryn is still wacked out. Even at the NYC performance, she kept fans waiting four hours and eventually arrived, uttering she was “worth the wait.” Um, I think I’ll be the judge of that madam.
