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