WTF? Lauryn Hill Arrives Three Hours Late To ANOTHER Show!

lauryn hill angers fans in atlanta

Seriously, Lauryn Hill? You are NOT in a position where you can keep doing this type of stuff to your remaining fans!

Earlier this month, Lauryn showed a total lack of appreciation for her fans by arriving three hours late to a Brooklyn, NY show, and now she's done it yet again at a show in Atlanta.

Hill's Atlanta show was supposed to start at 9 p.m., but she didn't show up until after midnight…and it was all downhill from there.

Lauryn announced to fans that she wanted to play something different, so she forced her band to "speed up the music," which totally ruined her classic songs.

Here's what a frustrated fan had to say about Lauryn's new interpretation of her music:

“[Lauryn said] I want crowd participation, but 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!”

“You can’t just say ‘I don’t wanna play my music night after night.’ That’s what we pay our money to hear! What do you think we do with your CD? We play the same songs. We don’t remix your CD!"

“Everybody just stood there with their arms folded. Everybody was shaking their heads [wondering] are you THAT into yourself that you would think everybody would like this? Every single record she played she put a different spin on it. She changed the whole thing. It was a waste of money, and a waste of time. If she did another show in Atlanta, no one would come!”

Not only that, but apparently her band was playing SO loud that nobody could hear her if they even wanted to by that point.

More from the fan:

"We kept asking her to tell the band to turn the music down. We couldn’t hear her.”

And here's what the fan had to say about angry fans who bailed on the show:

“They didn’t walk out — they stomped out!”

This sounds awful! We can't imagine fans will keep flocking to these shows if she keeps treating them this way!

You need to start treating your fans better, Lauryn! At this stage of the game, you CANNOT get away with this type of behavior!

Has Lauryn Hill's attitude affected your feelings towards her?

    And Lauryn was not 3 hours late. The doors opened at 8 and the venue (on there website) stated that she would not be on until around 11. The DJ came out at 11 and got the crowd ready. Then the bass players and the keyboardist joined them. The background singers followed and Lauryn hit the stage close to 12.

    She never announced that she was tired of “playing the same music night after night.” What she said was, "we're going to do some classics, but a little bit different. We like to keep them interesting for us too." I believe she even asked, "is that alright?" And she says that at the beginning of every show.

    And this "she doesn't care about her fans" business is just absurd. Just because she changed up her music, she doesn't care about her fan's. Weak argument. Especially since we have something called purchasing power. She was very gracious and talked directly to people in the crowd during the show. She laughed with them and as I mentioned shook every outstretched hand before leaving the stage. She even gave her sweaty little rag to them. Lol.

    Not at all.. She's a legend and will forever remain as such!

    Lauryn has performed 14 concert so far. Why do you only report on her when you find something negative to say? What is your angle? Why don't you ever post her actual performances; because, they are all available. She is still an incredible performer. She has not performed her classics in the original form for years, and any true fan would know this. It has been reported endlessly. She thanks the audience throughout her performances for their support.

    She was two hours and forty-five minutes late to start her show in NC last week.



  5. 5

    she is a legend … she used to be awesome … but … then she became a flaming bigoted racist. she should go crawl under a rock and stay there until she shrivels up.

    I saw her in NY at Rock the Bells and it equally sucked. She probably took a little long coming to the stage but she wasn't the headliner (thank god for that) and they were able to get her to stage. all the "classics" (if you can call them that seeing as she has only really had one fucking album. sorry a live album doesn't count) were done in a way that made them unrecognizable. I did not enjoy myself. thanks god for snoop dogg later. what a performance. he knows his audience. she ruined what could have been a huge comeback for herself. and whats funny is NYC gave her another chance and she ruined that too. it was nice knowing ya lauryn. what could have been a long, fruitful, amazing career is really just a one-album wonder.

    Lauryn Hill has some very dedicated fans–and deservedly so–BUT it seems like we've been watching her unravel for a few years now. There have been rumours that it's not because of substance abuse but because of mental illness, but whatever it is, she's not at the top of her game by any means. My fear is that the people who are devoted to her will keep defending her behaviour without encouraging her to get real help, while others will just turn away in frustration.

    SHE'S DONE. OBVIOUS THE BITCH IS ON DRUGS… HIGH AS A KITE.



  9. 9

    Hasbeen crackhead

    Holy shit, was that photo taken during her Good Times audition?

    This haRe: realtime – Well, did you like her "different" interpretations of the songs? Because I can't see how any Lauryn fan would enjoy that. Sorry, but when you pay to hear the hits and an artist changes every single song in the set to the point where its not even recognizable anymore, how is that possibly enjoyable? Sounds selfish if you ask me and very much a waste of money and this is coming from a Lauryn stan. I'm a HUGE Lauryn fan but have had it with her diva antics lately. I wouldn't pay to go and see her perform now.

    Re: Beatnik – You said the key word rumors. I think the disappointment comes in those fans looking for a forever 21 Lauryn Hill. If you look at Lauryn objectively you will see that she is a better performer now than she ever was. Yes, her voice has changed, but it has aged beautifully. Lauryn has to create her on space, or she will be forever stuck with no room for growth. Yes, she may lose some fans looking for that Mised Lauryn, but those willing to embrace Ms Lauryn Hill are in for a treat.

    Re: lacey1 – Yes, I enjoy her new renditions very much. I think you are right if you can't give up the old to embrace the new just move on and enjoy the CD. I just don't understand going to her concerts when you know up front her approach to the music.



  14. 14

    Another entitled celebrity that basically has contempt for her audience. Ke$ha has a better work ethic - and she's not a racist bigot like Hill.



  15. 15

    Yes i am pissed! Cause i bought $80.00 ticket so I hope she doesn't pull that shit in Chicago. Just because she is good doesn't mean she has to be a diva or an asshole!



  16. 16

    Lauryn Hill is a washed up has been. I never understood what the big deal was about her. Bitch went crazy and let's not forget…Lauryn IS A RACIST!!
    Fuck her,fuck her rascist views and her terrible music



  17. 17

    she is a nasty racist
    who doesnt give a fuck about anyone else about herself.
    not even the people who throw their hard earned money away
    to see her perform live.



  18. 18

    I have her miseducation album, and when I first got it I listened to it a lot.

    However… now I feel that this racist ignorant bitch should just retire and live happily ever after somewhere where she will never show her bigot face again.

    Relax guys. Saw her in Asheville and, yes, she was a little late but the venue had been told days before she would take the stage later than expected. Yes, she sped up Lost Ones but that was the only song. Other re-interpretations were wonderful. Yes, it was loud…really friggin' loud…so wear earplugs. Quit complaining…she is an amazing artist who is the real deal…so glad she's back on the road. Hoping for new music soon….

    Re: Nonnaluv – weird to see someone from asheville on perez haha

    Well all i have to say is Karma is a Biatch! For anyone who has ever worked for her knows she is out of her mind! So lost in her ego she doesn't know how to behave normally. I was a fan before I worked for her (for free by the way), now i cant even tolerate listening to her music. This just goes to show that people who idolize others without knowing their true nature are just stupid. But i guess we all are fooled every now and then. Come on, look how many people Mel Gibson fooled!



  22. 22

    She was 3 and half hours late in St. Louis. Lauryn is done.



  23. 23

    I can't speak for the other cities but in Minneapolis, the doors opened at 9, she came on (as expected) around 12:00. She wasn't late, she came on ready to rock! She "reworked" some of her classics (as she put it) and they were amazing! The beat, the uptempo, everything. She went back and did some Fugees numbers, and she did some of her classics She even did her duet with Bob Marley. I read an article on Perez awhile ago saying that she's a perfectionist and its clear when you watch her perform that she is. She's attuned to every piece of the band on stage and gets them to groove like she wants them to and when they hit to where she wants it, the effect is incredible. Lauryn LOVES Minneapolis and Oh my gosh did THEY LOVE HER! Sold out show and everyone danced their way out of that venue.
