Lauryn Hill Disputes Academy President's Claims


Yesterday the President of the Recording Academy shot down Lauryn Hill's claims that she was never confirmed to preform at the Grammy Awards stating the real reason her duet with The Weeknd never happened is because she was late [click here if you missed that].

Lauryn Hill clears the air...

In a statement to Pickfork reps for Lauryn Hill explain,
In regards to the comments this morning from The Grammys, CBS did announce Ms. Hill's performance, there were official Grammy television ads that ran for a couple of days naming Ms. Hill as a performer on the show. Her camp was unhappy about this. They had made it clear from the start that although Ms. Hill was going to attempt to make the show, she could not confirm, as there were too many logistical issues that could potentially prevent the performance from happening. The performance was also supposed to be a surprise. This was discussed with Grammy organizers, and the TV spots were pulled. As previously mentioned, Ms. Hill attempted a last minute rush to LA, to see if this could happen, but unfortunately timing that day kept it from being a reality. Ms. Hill truly appreciated the invitation, and the efforts made by all parties to try and make the performance happen.

So what about all of the other shows that Lauren Hill was late for or didn't show up for? I guess that was the Grammys and CBS' fault too?

@ 1:58..So I guess she is the only natural Black Women..smh You must be White making a comment like that. All natural sistas are beautiful in their own way.

Are these comments serious? "Runaway slave" and "crackhead". It's probably because of negative comments like these why Lauryn stays lowkey. Y'all can say what you want about her. The woman is talented. She's just done with the industry, tis all. Her heart hasn't been in it for years...

Um, again: Operation Mockingbird for there to be THIS much hatred of this woman on a gossip blog thread? Who did she piss off in the hierarchy when she rejected what she was offered. Keep running from iniquity, Ms. Hill

1:59 this wouldn't happen to beyonce because she is is indebted to those who pay her bills. Lauren hill already paid her debt to society on some dumb shit and said fuck u Grammy u ain't my mammy.

If you gotta tell a woman that she's beautiful, she AIN'T beautiful.

Beyonce knows she's fine. She dies n't validation

Beyonce is the standard of Black Beauty.
If you fon't look like her , you need to fix yourself.

They time women who look like Lauren get attention from black men is during February (Black History Month ) just out of political correctness. The other 11 months out of the year, they're stuck at home on a Saturday night. No Man. No Plan.

These comments are a disgusting, but are by no means a reflection of black people as a whole. Loves Lauryn Hill and love that she's not a conformist.

I couldn't agree more. How sad that some Black people conditioned to hate themselves can not retrain their minds to believe that anything Black is negative.

Lauren must feel conflicted about participating in the soul-sucking industry and keeping her integrity. I'm glad to see her integrity won, yet again.

@1:26 I want to send you a gold star for the use of the term "flim-flam" My pop-pop used that word and it took me down memory lane in photo albums.

Thanks for rekindling lovely memories!!!

8:23 - Perhaps meditation and a big glass of water and a hug would do you good. Whatever is going on in your life will get better once you stop perpetuating negativity. Peace and blessings.

7:52 - How do you know the commenters are black? This all feels like some sad vinegar smelling white guy in his mom's basement. The female-bashing alone tells me this is a sad, lonely person who otherwise feels helpless in life. So sad.

I don't understand this dark women are ugly and light skin is fabulous. The light skin women are marrying dark skin men. Like beyonce's mother twice and now beyonce married a dark skin man so I don't understand these negative postings.the people that Stan for Beyonce were dark skin. The women dancing at the super bowl were dark skin women. What is the issue?

Lauryn is gorgeous. Been hoping she would get it together for over a decade. Over it. Will always wish her well...

I'll fuck an albino before I fuck Lauryn 's crispy ass.

If, by being in the entertainment industry, she felt her integrity was at stake she probably should have gracefully delcined to participate in the show from the very beginning. Who would have noticed her missing? If it were not for the public bickering it would only be an internal matter.

7:51 PM, That Black women dance crew was the best addition to the performance that she could have ever had.

The issue isn't the black dance crew, it's thst she was the only LSLH leading the all dark skin dance crew in the name of black solidarity.
Those dancers look like they were auditioning for temp hires in Destiny's Child

Beyonce is not pretty to me, I don't see the hype. Beyonce is an average looking women. Now who is gorgeous is that damn Janet Jackson. Now Janet Jackson is a pretty black woman.

Bey, Halle, Janet, Rihanna-none could hold a candle to 80's era Vanity in regards to beauty (RIP). Bey looks like she has thyroid issues and has never been other-worldly beautiful. I have always felt Lauryn Hill was pretty. Just a bit off.

Also this light is better than dark trolling from Bey stans is why she is losing her fan base. It would be very classy if she reigned her fans in some. But I don't expect class from someone who trys to steal ther performers slots on shows ( Ledisi, Rihanna)

You're right, I don't know if they are all Black. But sadly, I've heard similar comments come straight out of the mouths of Black people. I could not care less about the comments from male basement dwelling, woman hating white racists. They're spouting the nonsense which is typical of people like them. Their feelings come, not just from loneliness, but from the realization that they are inadequate in every way possible.
