    Lauryn Hill Going To The Pokey

    Good riddance. Is there anything in her life that she hasn't blamed racism for?

    Well, if she doesn't like the economic system "imposed" on her, she could always emigrate to a different country...

    It is good to see that once she is out of prison she will go back to being the "cash cow" for Sony.

    Re: Lauryn Hill Going To The Pokey

    Seems like she could have crossed her legs occasionally, producing fewer than six children, along with paying even a modest amount of attention to the responsibilities that go along with having a large income. But it's so much easier to blame society when people don't have the balls to accept their own choices.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Preferably one with no racism or discrimination at all. I'm sure that won't be an issue to find.

    Re: Lauryn Hill Going To The Pokey

    WOW, Compared her time in the music business to slavery? I can't think of too many slaves that were making enough money to owe the government $1 million in taxes or living the lifestyle she lived. That's one of the most thoughtless, self centered quotes I've read in a while.

    She's not the first artist to make that comparison:

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    yeah I imagine that made her ancestors roll over in their graves. Completely classless and narcissistic.

    You guys are just strumming her pain with your fingers. It's HARD being rich and remembering to pay taxes.
