Lauryn Hill has reportedly pleaded guilty to tax evasion! The (now disputable, thanks to her ongoing antics: showing up late at concerts, trailing off to la la land, etc.) princess of neo-soul earned $1.5 million over a three-year period and failed to pay taxes on her earnings, allegedly.
At a U.S. District Court in Newark Friday, she reportedly said she had wanted to explain why she didn’t pay her taxes from the years 2005 to 2007, with some of her reasoning being that, *ehem*: the pop industry’s “climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism” sucked. And, apparently, because this world is sooo bad, she withdrew from it, (uhm, while making money IN it though, seriously??) in order to guarantee her and her family’s wellness.
Mmmkay. Your favorite artist, who can’t handle the world the way you do, now faces a maximum one-year sentence on each of her three counts.
Leave your thoughts on the continued “behaviors” of Lauryn Hill below. Maybe it’s the world’s fault, don’t get us wrong: Hollyweird does suck. But seriously? Why are you living off Hollywood and its government if it’s so terrible? Doesn’t your money come from you being signed by Hollywood and being in the “industry,” in fact being an industry icon? Why didn’t you give your Grammys back, Ms. Hill? I can’t. Maybe y’all can though…so please: comment below.
