Lauryn Hill Bails on the Grammys


Over the past few days there were rumors that the incomparable Lauryn Hill would be performing at this years Grammys awards.

There were even photos of her boarding a private flight with her band and rehearsing with The Weeknd, so what happened...?

Lauryn Hill's camp released a statement to The Fader claiming the last minute performance had never been confirmed,
"The Grammys announced a performance by Ms. Lauryn Hill prematurely and without approval. Ms. Hill had concerts all weekend, leaving no time to prepare, and was uncertain she would even be able to make it to LA in time to rehearse for the event. Any performance that could have happened was never confirmed, and should not have been advertised as such. Ms. Hill was invited to do a collaboration with an artist she appreciates. The performance was intended to be a surprise and unfortunately due to its last minute nature, was unable to come to fruition."

But why? Was it that weird Kendrick Lamar performance with the jump cuts and his black eye? Why did Rihanna, Nikki Minaj, and Lauryn Hill all back out at the last minute? Weird.

This is why Black entertainers continue to lose - they historically shoot themselves and each other in the foot. Sad because thee is alot of talent but no common sense.

She's just a total waste of space these days. Why people bother with her, I can't fathom.

She had ONE good album. That's not hard to do, especially when you have a good team, which she did and didn't pay. Folks need to accept that she's overrated. She had a decent album. Kudos. But her ego and talent are not evenly matched.

Something happened to Lauryn. She ain't been right in forever. That Marley must've put something in her coffee all those years because her behavior is odd. I loved her album but I will never purchase a ticket to see her live. She is unreliable AF!

Lauryn was smart not to perform. The Grammys are sloppy.

Most the black artists boycotted. However Lauryn was just messy as usual.
