NEWSFLASH!! Lauryn Hill was HELLA late hitting the stage in Atlanta last weekend and fans who paid good money to see her perform are livid!!
It was just a few year back that Hill disappointed ATL fans by showing up 3 hours late (click HERE if you missed that), well it seems she’s still has a time management problem.
Chastain Park shuts down promptly at 11pm due to noise ordinances in place to protect the surrounding residents and since Hill has been through this before, it would seem she’d make more of an effort…. but noooooo! This time, the former Fugee was TWO hours late to the stage (a wee bit better than before but still late as hail) and she only performed about 40 minutes before her mic was shut off!
Later, the musician hit Facebook with a lengthy excuse, saying she has “perfectionist tendencies” and that she doesn’t show up to shows late because she doesn’t care, but because she has a challenge with aligning her energy with the time.
