Lauryn Hill Booed After Turning Up 2 Hours Late For Atlanta Concert

Published: Saturday 7th May 2016 by Sam

Lauryn Hill‘s live legacy continues to take a battering.

The critically praised singer has fallen foul of fan favour in recent years after a number of concert no-show’s and chronic lateness. Last night saw the latter occur again – this time in Atlanta.

Full story below…

The 40 year old Fugees star did play the show at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in the ATL, but was greeted by boos upon taking to the stage — because, according to attendees, she arrived two hours late.

To make matters worse, her set’s sound was cut short at 11pm due to the venue’s curfew.

Naturally, Twitter had no chill and the floodgates of shade were broken….


Given that Lauryn has not released noteworthy material since ‘The Miseducation,’ one would assume her live stage game would be a well-oiled machine. Instead, her antics are becoming dry and tiresome.

    Why people even pay to see this b**** live is beyond me. She is arrogant and disrespectful. Girl bye and take that 18 year old album with you.

    Lol why are they so surprised though

  3. King B May 7, 2016

    Look at Kanye,Lauryn,Azelia Bank,Chris Brown etc. Now y’all wonder why the GP likes Taylor and Adele and buy their music?

    • Toeknee May 7, 2016

      It’s because they are WHITE

      • King B May 7, 2016

        No.It’s their attitude. If I really like a song, I will buy their albums regardless of their skin color. But if they make a nice songs with an attitude like Kanye and her, very unprofessional, no matter how good they are, I will not buy their music.

    It’s really hard to find a celebrity that never involved in Twitter fights, dissing each other, ranting about all sorts of stuff. Beyoncé. ONLY BEYONCÉ. Despite all her success, she still takes her singing seriously, always on time for her concert, not even rain and storm can stop her.

      BEYONCE D_ick rider. BEYONCE IS A GIMMICK. Her parents blended TINA TURNERS stage presence, Janet Jacksons dance moves and Mariah’s dramatic wind blown hair into a rnb ROBOT. She’s tired

      • King B May 7, 2016

        Combine all those legends’ talents and you’ll have Beyoncé. Tina+Mariah+MJ+Whitney+Madonna’s longetivity, success, global popularity and impact= Beyoncé. Beyoncé>>>>all those trash in the current industry that think they are above everyone. eg. Kanye, Lil Kim, Lauryn etc

        @King B, how come Lemonade flopped on HBO and the album still hasn’t gone platinum after 2 weeks?

  5. Leah May 7, 2016

    She is BROKE and ungrateful; this industry has torn her down; you have a packed house and your lazy black ass can’t even show up on time.???? NOT TO MENTION YOUR VOCALS HAVE NOT BEEN ON POINT IN YEARS

    • #JACKIE May 7, 2016

      And your point is? She still respects her fans and the venues by showing up ON TIME. GTFOH with that nonsense, f**.

  10. Lauryn Hill sucks May 7, 2016

    She was about an hour and a half late when I saw her live a few years ago. Then she remixed all of her songs and sounded horrible. I will never waste my money on her again.

  11. Annalise? May 7, 2016

    NOT Fatt-the-Kimchi-eating-Pháàg seething under his yellyah account ??. I diedT @ Mulan claiming he left, when he was still peeping the comments under his other accounts

  12. B&B May 7, 2016

    Lauryn lost the rights to her music, only original songs she can play are from the fugees cuz she was given permission by wyclef. That’s why you hear remixes of her own. She would have to pay up to play the music she wrote from the miseducation of Lauryn hill.

    These people need their money back though. What singer in their right mind would do something like this? I wonder what she’s going through….

    • ScatmanCrothers May 8, 2016

      B&B. Artists can perform live ANY song they choose including songs they have no rights to.

      Please understand all songs that performed live the artist must submit their setlist to the venue and/or the booking agent to submit the performance fee and setlist tothe performing rights agency for distribution of performance royalties so that the publisher will receive performance royalties to pay to the songwriter/composer.

      In other words, it doesn’t matter what songs she performs she still has to pay and the fee isn’t that great, it’s almost the same as a royalty rate as the radio…..

      There’s no excuse to please her fans?

  13. zeroing ivy bloper tran anti girl lemond time May 9, 2016
