Did You Miss It? Lauryn Hill Issues Apology To Pittsburgh Fans For Extreme Tardiness To Show

Published: Thursday 2nd Feb 2017 by Rashad

‘Rebel’ wailer Lauryn Hill has long proven herself a rebel against promptness, punctuality, and timeliness.  Yet, for Pittsburgh fans who opted to ignore the complaints of countless cities before them, they found out firsthand on January 31st when the songstress was so late to her own show in the ‘Steel City’ many assumed she was a “no-show.”

Appearing on stage over 3 hours after her scheduled time, angry Pittsburgh fans took to Twitter to voice their frustration and, in the process, ignited an onslaught of memes and mockery across the social media platform.  Apparently some of the negative attention reached the desk of Ms. Hill who, in response, lifted an apology to her official Twitter account recently.

    This apology might’ve been accepted if she didn’t ALWAYS show up late for her shows. I will never, ever, in my life go to her show.

      Right??!! ??

    • TalentlessFire February 2, 2017

      I rather hear about the nicki minaj burglar incident than this unapologetic post

    • The Wig Snatcher February 2, 2017

      …and there was barely any snow in NYC. Lauryn needs to stop making excuses and do better or keep risking losing bookings.

        This banshee needs to worry about combing that cookie bush, getting WIC for her thousands of b4stards and pay the IRS. Such a has been HUN.

    When white performers, like Madonna, have a HABIT of showing up EXTREMELY LATE they get a pass. Why is all of this negative media attention being put on Lauryn Hill? She gets no press for the concerts she shows up to on time.

    • SMH February 2, 2017

      Good point. Madonna was just as late for like half the shows on her last tour (like she is on all of her tours) and she didn’t get half the negative attention Lauryn did.

    • Beyoncé Jackson February 2, 2017

      Let’s noooot make this a race thing. Lauryn is habitually late to most of her shows, that’s if she even bothers to show up! She butchers her hits to the point of being unrecognizable for about 40 minutes, then exits the stage. The last excuse she gave was about her “energy not being aligned.” Girl bye, let me tell that to my boss and see if I’ll still have a job in the morning. ?

      • Jasmine February 2, 2017

        You can’t expect everyone to buy into your assimilated perspective. If a white performer did the same thing and got the same amount of twitter complaints it would not get national media attention. Period.

      • Beyoncé Jackson February 2, 2017

        You’re reaching for the stars honey. I didn’t see anything about Lauryn being late or not showing up to shows on my local news channel or CNN. If you consider blogs, tweets and Facebook statuses to be national news, mmmkay.

    • Nicki Minaj Stan February 2, 2017

      Why do the fools on here always make it about race?

      • Jasmine February 2, 2017

        Because it is about race. Don’t be upset that your backwords mentality is not able to comprehend how media race bates all the time. If Madonna shows up 4 hours late and there are numerous twitter complaints from her stans the media is not going to write stories about it and make it national attention. Period.

      • Jasmine February 2, 2017

        @Nicki Biitch if you don’t like what I write then don’t respond. It is definitely about race.

    • ENOUGH ONIKA February 2, 2017

      Jasmine……shut up ??

      • Nicki Minaj Stan February 2, 2017

        Jasmine your just the same as Trump. No one even said it was because of her race but YOU had to go and make it about her race you dumb paranoid b****.

      • Jasmine February 3, 2017

        @Enough Onigga you Shut the Fuuck up Biitch. If you don’t like what I state then don’t respond.

    • BYE February 3, 2017

      Girl what the hell are you talking about ? Let’s not come with the race s*** Lauryn hill has been late to nearly every single show she’s had

  3. Mashiyu February 2, 2017

    I don’t understand why she is always giving excuses. What she needs to do is the following in this order:

    1)Grow the f*** up.
    2)Take responsibility for your mistake.
    3)Learn from your mistake.
    4)Apply what you learned.
    5)Repeat steps 1-4 if necessary.

    Keep it.

  5. Elsie February 2, 2017

    Lauryn stick a fork in it your done, your close to people not checking for u

  6. sam is TRASH February 2, 2017

    Who cares?

  7. Tokyo Vanity fan (formerly new) February 2, 2017

    If the promoter did send out the tweet about the show starting later than anticipated and there is snow issues, I don’t see the problem with it. At least she tried to make it to the venue and is still offering an extra show.

  8. JEC2 February 2, 2017

    NEVER go see her. She is ALWAYS late. I tried for 5 shows. so late that two of them got cut off after 45 mins. Plus odd versions of the songs…her breathy odd phrasing (except on love is stronger than pride)….it never ends up being worth it. i always left in a bad mood.

    • MUSICHEAD February 2, 2017

      If u went to see her 5 times the jokes on you lol

    • Jasmine February 2, 2017

      5 shows? Why not consider finding another artist’s concert. This is 2017 before you go to any concert you should check the artist’s concert reviews on the current tour and watch a few current performances on youtube before you spend money on concert tickets.

  9. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey Really Is!!!) February 2, 2017

    Just retire b****!

  10. Tee Tay February 2, 2017

    Lauryn is full of f****** s***. She was 2 1/2 hours late to my show, performed for a half an hour and dipped. She sang weird versions of her songs and didn’t interact with the audience. $90 I’ll never get back.

    • Jasmine February 2, 2017

      Call your credit card company and tell them to reverse the charges because you did not get what you paid for.

  11. ENOUGH ONIKA February 2, 2017

    People still go out to see her??? Chile…..just pop in the miseducation CD if you feeling nostalgic and be done…

  12. ENOUGH ONIKA February 2, 2017

    Her best days went when her hair did….

  13. HailLegendBeysus February 2, 2017

    Where’s the post about Beyoncé being confirmed for a Grammy performance?

  14. Jamie February 2, 2017

    She sings her stuff super uptempo now so the tardiness balances out.?

  15. Now at your best game way tuesidnz February 7, 2017

    She should quit music business and do something else
