Must See: Lauryn Hill Wows ‘Austin City Limits’ With ‘Ex Factor’ & More

thatgrapejuice lauryn hill austin city limits

The road to redemption is looking smoother everyday for once-embattled songstress Lauryn Hill.

The diva – whose highly publicized tendency for tardiness has undoubtedly been impeding ticket sales/desire for fans to see her live – took to ‘Austin City Limits‘ in a rare televised appearance to remind concertgoers exactly why they should reconsider patronizing her recently announced tour (click here to read more on that).

Cranking out her career-defining hits like ‘Killing Me Softly,’ ‘Doo Wop (That Thing),’ and ‘Ex Factor,’ the performance – filmed in late 2015 – aired this weekend to much critical fanfare.

Lauryn Hill Announces North American Tour

Serially Tardy Songstress On Road To Redemption?

lauryn_hill-2-715x474-thatgrapejuice

2016 has not exactly been kind to Lauryn Hill “the live act.”

After earning no dearth of detractors for her tendencies for tardiness or all around absence for her special appearances and concerts (see:  Grammys, Twitter, etc.), the ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ diva thought it a good thing to book a break from the road to let the heat cool down and, hopefully, align her energy with timeliness and punctuality.

In fact, if her official web site is anything to go by, Hill’s alignment process may very well be underway. For, with the turn of the month came news she’s set to hit the road again!  Curious to know if the former Fugees frontwoman will be on time coming to a city near you?

Tuck in below for the dates:

Foxy-Brown-Peter-Kramer-angie stone-thatgrapejuice vh1 honors

VH1’s ‘Hip Hop Honors’ definitely missed the spot for fans of ‘Hot Spot’ hitmaker Foxy Brown.

The annual tribute ceremony may have served up epic performances in homage to female rap pioneers Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott and more, but some fans complained the edition had some noticeable exclusions from its list of honorees – namely Brown and Lauryn Hill.

While Hill has opted to remain mum on the snub, Brown has joined her fans in ‘checking’ the music network for not doing their homework.

Lauryn Hill Drama: Questlove Clocks Singer Over Lateness

lauryn-hill-questlove-thatgrapejuice

Lauryn Hill‘s chronic lateness saw her hit headlines over the weekend after Atlanta concert-goers booed for turning up over 2 hours after the start time of her concert.

When the news hit social media, the story took on a life of its own – so much so that the former Fugees front-woman was forced to make a statement. Therein she promised to make it up to fans, apologised, but oddly blamed her tardiness on her “energy” needing to be right and how it doesn’t always align with show times.

That didn’t wash with many, including Roots drummer Questlove.

See what we mean below…

Awkward: Lauryn Hill Fan Confronts Singer Over Lateness

Supporter Patience Runs Out In Fiery Exchange

lh1

A Lauryn Hill fan has taken a direct approach to voicing his anger with the star following her late arrival to an Atlanta concert last night.

As reported, the Fugees star hit the stage more than two hours later than billed and the show was abruptly cut short – much to the displeasure of those in attendance (as well as those who’ve experienced similar at her shows).

No explanation was given and that was reason enough for said supporter to pop off like a firework when Hill attempted to shake hands with folk in the front row.

Watch the awkward exchange below…
