Washingtonians were up in arms with Lauryn Hill on Sunday after she hit the stage over 3 hours late. But they’re gonna be even more pissed about her reason. Find out why, along with her new interview with Fuse, when you read on…
Ending the U.S. Rock The Bells Tour in the nation’s capital, Lauryn Hill was fashionably late to say the least. She had fans waiting for 3 hours for her to perform her set in DC on Sunday. And it was all because she was getting a mani/pedi. According to the Washington Post:
Sunday’s rumor was a doozy, and it was true — she really was three hours late to the stage because she was getting a manicure-pedicure
Back at the pavilion main stage, the waiting game continued. After a staggering two hours of silence A Tribe Called Quest hit the stage.
Her toenails apparently dry, Lauryn Hill was finally next, but she probably shouldn’t have bothered. The performance was a messy rush through highlights from "Miseducation," but they were hardly recognizable due to her hoarse voice, speedy delivery and clunky, overstuffed arrangements.
The feedback on her microphone was ear-splitting; special guest Nas came out for a 45-second cameo, and his microphone wasn’t working for half of it. After 20 minutes she departed to an equal mix of cheers and boos, seemingly oblivious as to why anyone might be upset.
Damn L-Boogie. At least give the people a decent show if you’re going to be 3 hours late. Sigh. Oddly, she can still do no wrong in my book…
Check out her performance of "If I Ruled the World" with Nas:
