Awkward: Lauryn Hill Fan Confronts Singer Over Lateness

Published: Saturday 7th May 2016 by Sam

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…

Fan goes off on #LaurynHill for showing up 3 hours late to her concert last night and only being able to perform for 30 mins

Folk often tout the importance of appreciating artists while they’re “here” – a statement which rings true. However, surely acts are equally obligated to appreciate and respect their fans while they’re there too.

It’s anyone’s guess what Lauryn is going through, but she needs to rein in this ridiculousness or she’ll be turning up late to empty venues.

    If u gonna SELL tickets than it not jus tabout being a artist anymore it about showing up being professional and doing you job which is to ENTERTAIN.
    I hater those artists that think their fans are blessed to be in their mere presence so they shouldn’t complain even if they are freaking 2 hour late to a show.
    News flash you had one classic album 18 years ago we he better artist come out before and after you you ain’t all that either be professional or stay home

    Embarrassing, this is what happens when you can’t defend yourself.

    She honestly couldn’t even say anything that would make the fan feel better. She simply was wrong. He had every right to do what he did.

    I would never waste money to see her live. Not only is she always late but she plays weird versions of her songs to the point that they don’t even sound the same anymore. She’s done!

    Omg I can only imagine what Beyonce or Rihanna would have done. Beyonce would have probably paid him dust and act like he wasn’t there and Rihanna probably would have said well don’t buy anymore tickets. Lol
