It's seems as though the artist has a history of showing up late to her shows and her fans are sick of it! With tickets being as high as $300.00..Below is a statement that Ms.Hill gave to her fans.
I don't show up late to shows because I don't care. And I have nothing but Love and respect for my fans. The challenge is aligning my energy with the time, taking something that isn't easily classified or contained, and trying to make it available for others. I don't have an on/off switch. I am at my best when I am open, rested, sensitive and liberated to express myself as truthfully as possible. For every performance that I've arrived to late, there have been countless others where I've performed in excess of two hours, beyond what I am contracted to do, pouring everything out on the stage.Because I care so deeply about the artistic process, I scrutinize, have perfectionist tendencies, and want space made for spontaneity, which is not an easy process, with the many moving parts on the road. Some days we are more successful than others re time. However, the vitality that is infused into the performances is always appreciated by the audiences, who may not know exactly what it took to accomplish. What hasn't been touched upon by the media, I'm sure, are the hundreds of people who rushed the stage and stayed in excess of an hour after the show ended last night, just to connect.Our challenge is to figure out the best way to accommodate the vitality, spontaneity, and spirit that make the performances worthwhile and special to begin with, while also making that experience available and accessible to others. If I didn't Love and respect the art, I wouldn't be doing this. The audience and I should have that in common.My true audience knows emphatically that I care. It isn't possible to affect people in any deep and meaningful way without putting sacrificial time in.I have nothing but Love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show. We are figuring out a plan to make it up to you, and will announce details as soon as we have them.Respectfully, ML
(AllHipHop News) Lauryn Hill has made an official statement today following a failed performance in Atlanta over the weekend.
Hill’s sound was cutoff after she showed up two hours late for a show the Chastain Park Amphitheatre.
Lauryn Hill’s statement, which was created as an open letter to fans, was posted earlier this morning via Facebook.
According to her post, the singer writes that she is excessively late mainly because of her “artistic process.”
The former Fugees singer writes:
Because I care so deeply about the artistic process, I scrutinize, have perfectionist tendencies, and want space made for spontaneity, which is not an easy process, with the many moving parts on the road. Some days we are more successful than others re time. However, the vitality that is infused into the performances is always appreciated by the audiences, who may not know exactly what it took to accomplish.
However, some fans weren’t really believing Ms. Lauryn Hill’s excuse.
With these statements and others made from even her die hard fans, Lauryn Hill’s musical success in the past is now being overshadowed by her tardiness at shows.
It seems as though Curtis Snow from hit movie "Snow on the Bluff" has gotten in a bit of trouble. It was reported earlier this week. While attending his Grandfather's funeral, he underwent a Stand off with Atlanta Police Department and SWAT team. The reasons are still unknown it was rumored that he got into a altercation with a family member and locked himself in the bathroom at the church. Bystanders said that during the altercation the police was called and that's how the standoff started. It's sad seems like everything was taking out of context. His new movie is out on Trapflix "Snow on the Bluff 2"
