LAURYN HILL MORE THAN HAPPY TO LEAVE HER 2-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER SO SHE CAN GO TO WORK!


Saturday, August 21, 2010

Lauryn HillSINGER Lauryn Hill doesn’t mind leaving her youngest daughter.

The star — who is the mother of five children with Rohan Marley, the fourth son of reggae musician Bob Marley — says she feels comfortable being away from her family.

“I don’t know if you know this, but I have five children,” she said. “The youngest is 2 now, so she’s old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she’s going to be OK. That’s one reason I’m starting to perform again.

“And I think it’s just time. I’m starting to get excited again. Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first. I think people might realize, you know, ‘We love the way she sounds, we love the music, but I think we just love how fearless she is. How boundless she is, when it comes to what she wants to do.’ And I think that can be infectious.”

Hill — who has been out of the public eye since 2008, following a series of poorly received performances and canceled shows — recently explained her hiatus from the music industry.

“There were a number of different reasons [why I left music],” she said earlier this year.

“The support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it.

“The machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society… And it’s important that people be given the time that they need to go through, to grow…”[imagebrowser id=584]

    Welcome back Lauren Hill! She’s a gift from God. Her thing is blessing all people with the ministry of her music. She’s beautiful, God-gifted, soulful, and strong and believes in the principles of righteousness. Go forth Lauren !!!! We got your back!!

    • paul.g

      there are some HOT pics of lauren at http://wowurl.com/11bw1

    • Tim

      HEY DEE and ALL

      This is the same person who said in the 90′s (with the fugees) that she did not white people to buy her music. You may look at her as a saint but I look at her as someone who is just as racist as anyone else who wonders why there still is racism.

      • ang

        i do agree with you, and unfortunately, that is why i stopped buying her music, if she doesnt want me to listen to her, so be it, however i do enjoy her old music and listen to her old stuff that i already purchased….it is unfortunate she feels that way and made those comments, she has a great gift that she does not want to share with everyone…..

      • Kim

        Tim and Ang,

        You and everyone else who keeps perpetuating this myth about Lauren saying that her music wasn’t made for white people need to cut it out once and for all. This is the same hateful, hurtful, bs urban myth that was charged against Oscare de la Renta in the 70′s then Calvin Klein in the 80′s (supposedly they both said their clothes weren’t made for black people and they wished blacks wouldn’t wear their clothes) then basically the SAME myth with a different industry (music) and name (Lauren Hill) came back in early 2001 when some hater spread a re-invented false rumor that she made this statement about white people and her music, then the SAME myth morphed once again into Tommy Hilfiger saying that HIS clothes were meant for black people and he wish they wouldn’t wear his stuff. Tommy even had to go on Oprah Winfrey to dispel this myth once and for all. You can see the Oprah/Tommy interview on Youtube if you don’t believe me. Do you think it’s a coincidence that the SAME rumor keeps circulating with new names? People always want to knock people down when they’re on top. It’s time that people quit spreading false rumors about people on the internet just because it’s easy to do. Anyway, the woman has 5 kids to feed, I doubt she gives a darn who buys her records.

        Good Luck Lauren. You’re an incredible talent.

      • Tom Yang

        Tim,

        You must be on drugs to make a comment like that! Pretty much you are passing on comments which were taken out of context and hating on someone you don’t know or care to know and appreciate the artist for who she is. What’s wrong with you? Haters love to hate and perpetuate myths just because they don’t have anything better to do. If everyone believed the way you do there is no way she would have sold as many albums as she did. Your comments are fake. Fake people love to tear down what they don’t know and understand. This was a rumor which got started and was just that, a rumor. How dumb is that…you weren’t there but you don’t mind keeping the rumor going because why? Because it is a free country and you are exercising your First Amendment right to free speech? Get a life!

      • clemenza

        Kim – 5 kids to feed? Really?! Rohan Marley is her man . . son of Bob? I doubt she has money issues. And, btw, she IS a race hustlin’ wench . . I have met her many times, and the rumors are true.
        P.S. She’d be nothing if it wasn’t for Wyclef!

      • Robin V.

        Urban Legend…. she never said it. Go to Snopes.com and if that isn’t enough for you, please produce the clip where she says this. No one has, as of yet. Not to mention, if this were true there would have been major controversy and much more publicity about it. It’s not true… look it up.

    • JOHNNY D

      THIS IS A WHORE, HAVING BABIES OUT OF WEDLOCK, BY A MAN WHO WILL NEVER MARRY HER, SHE IS FOOLISH AND SHE NOW HAS 5 BASTARDS

    • JJ

      Lauren Hill is a piece of shit human being. She has no talent despite the impressive pedigree.
      If I ever saw that racist piece of shit I’d whip my johnny out and piss on her!!!

      • larry

        more anger!

      • abatha

        You probably don’t have a johnny big enough to whip out, to piss in the toilet, get a life

  • khandi

    Yes…This what I’ve been waiting for. L…Boogie back on the scene.WHAT.

  • Laura

    I had the pleasure of seeing Ms. Hill in 2008 at a California performance and she ROCKED IT. I’ve not been able to believe the bs rumors about ‘bad performances’ and mental illness. She was right on point and just slayed the house that night. Welcome back. The music world needs you, sistah!

    • Laura

      Listen to her music and you’ll find her rock-solid morals. Shame on your judgmental self. I wish more mothers were as into their kids and dedicated to guiding them as well as Lauryn.

      • http://yahoo Nedra

        COOKIE WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE, WE DN’T KNOW WHAT YOU DO INSIDE YOUR HOUSE, PUT YOU BUSINESS OUT THERE SO WE CAN SEE AND HEAR ABOUT YOU, YES I AM A STRONG BLACK MOTHER WHO NEVER MARRIED MY 2 SONS FATHER AND IF YOU ASK THEM I WAS A GREAT MOTHER. SO JUDGE YOURSELF, NOT OTHERS, YOU WILL BE JUDGED ONE DAY AND HE IS GONNA ASK YOU ABOUT THIS SAME QUESTION AND ANSWER YOU SO STUPIDLY GAVE….YOUR IGNORANT.

      • PF

        Cookie when two people have been together for for more than ten years, have 5 kids together, work as a team and put everything aside to raise thier children together, there are no moral issues. Lauryn and Rohan are “spiritually together” as he quoted in an article in People Magazine in 2008. Obviously they are different from you Cookie and do not believe in the institution of marriage and that is ok. Everybody is not going to believe in the same things you do. What is not ok is that you say that when people say or do something you don’t think is right that they make the black race look bad. Who are you the President of the Black Panthers or NAACP? You don’t even hear them saying things like that anymore because it’s played out. No individual is responsible to their race to make you look good. They are responsible to themselves and whatever higher being they believe in if they even believe in a higher power. So please stop saying somebody is making your race look bad that is so 1960 of you! How can we move past racism in this country if everyone is so focused on thier race being better that the next Cookie?

  • Cookie

    Lauren Hill is a poor role model. She has five children out of wedlock!!!! Where is the morals??? Ridiculous black woman and an embarassment to her race.

    • Angela

      Are you serious? How many people in Hollywood have children out of wedlock? PLENTY!!! She is not the only one and at lease they all have the same father. She is not an embarrassment to anyone, YOU ARE with those prehistoric morals!!

      • Nicole

        Yeah, but it doesnt make it right. Morals are morals, they dont change unless ones a heathen.

      • Really?

        Wow! Look at the judgemental folks on this post. This entire world has horrible morals. She may not be married, but she and Rohan are parenting their children together. How many married couples out there are good examples for their children? Just because you have children “in wedlock” does not make you moral. Just ask the man or woman on your block that’s cheating on his/her spouse.

      • Tonya

        who says YOU have morals? who created what is right? MAN! you are uneducated and obviously not world traveled. There are country’s that do not comdem a woman who is raising 5 intelligent world conscience children! There is nothing wrong with having kids as long as YOU are not supporting them AND they are a GIVER to society and not a TAKER like most…You condem this young lady but you never heard anything she said or you would love her pure soul and all she stands for WHEN delivering music to the masses, unlike other artist who say anything to make a buck, including insult little black girls and woman of all races!!! I prefer her over lil wayne, thanks..

        NICOLE, JUDGE YE, JUDGE NOT, HOW IN THE WORLD ARE YOU GONNA JUDGE ANYONE, ARE YOU THAT RIGHTEOUS IN THE SIGHT OF THE ALMIGHTY, YOU NEED TO REBUKE WHAT YOU SAID, NO ONE IS PERFECT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD

      • http://yahoo.com sheryil stergios

        you are joking? there are just so many women who have a child that are not married ok let sent them all to hell make you feel better if you don’t like the idea that she is making a come back then don’t buy her music, she has evey right to make a living and at least she knows those her baby daddy are there are so many women who don’t. PLEASE DON’T JUDGE ANYONE UNSTILL YOU WALK A MILE OR MORE IN THIER SHOSE. It is up to God to lay out the judgement not you. You need to really get it together with the Lord and just maybe you will get it right.NOT JUDGEING OTHERS! I can a sure you who would not like it if the shose there on the other foot..and it was you everyone was putting you down…

    • delois hopkins

      No one can be an embarrassament to a race, you can only be true to yourself, she has 5 children, that she takes care of, and the father i am sure helps, ppl like you irks me, don’t judge, or somebody will judge you and you wont like it. peace

      • Lawbaby

        I have seen it a million times. These same people that are judging her family are the same ones with the molesters, druggies and other ‘immorals’ in their home. She has a family and just because she may not be married to the father, they are still as moral a family as those very ones that judge her. Yall can learn alot from her.

        Also, she is absolutely beautiful. Thats why so many are looking for fault in her, pure jealousy.

      • jane

        Kudos Law…….these folks making these simple comments are doing this to subvert their racism. The woman has a stable family for her children, has never lived on your dime or mine, so what is the problem. You are probably correct…the women posting here with the underhanded racial comments better check craigslist…their spouse or boyfriend is probably on there trying to get a little something while they are being racists, and dollars to donuts, they are probably looking for women of color. You know someone in their family is hooked on crystal meth, and somebody in the house is being, has been molested by one of those men with strong family values……if they’re not sleeping with their cousins.

    • Motha of 4

      Ms. Cookie if you don’t have anything nice to say about Ms. Hill then you need to keep your mouth closed. Was your mama married when she had you and your siblings cause I know you’re not an only child, check yourself before you try to put somebody else down. Don’t be mad cause she is doing her thing and is going to keep on doing it with or without your support.

      • Truth

        She is not married you need to learn your facts.

      • http://yahoo Nedra

        JUDGE YE, JUDGE NOT, IF YOU ARE LIVING IN A GLASS, THEN YOU SHOULD THROW THE FIRST STONE YOU PEOPLE WHO WANT TO JUDGE, EVERYONE ON THIS EARTH IS GONNA GET JUDGED, WHO IS RIGHTEOUS AMOUNG US NO ONE.

    • someenchantment

      She has been married to Bob Marley’s son R. Marley The reside in Jamacia. Don’t judge, Read! and know your facts.

    • z

      WORD!

    • http://danabrenklin.com Dana Brenklin

      She is not an embarrassment to me. Nothing in her music embarrasses me. I don’t know what her beliefs are as far as marriage, but what she writes and sings about says to me that she is moral, intelligent and caring and that works for me. Everyone falls short sometimes, she is not Jesus or God, she is here for our entertainment and she may have kids and not be married, but there are far worse entertainers out there than her.

    • Darron

      To the contrary! Not only is she a source of empowerment to the race, she serves as a pioneer of strong family values that are prevalent within our race. If such comments were stated by Ms.Hill at that time, it only reflected her state of consciousness at that time. Do your personally know if she still expresses those words?

      It’s nice to know your back on the seen Lauren. Stay strong and beautiful.

      A fan for life.

    • mishy

      No, what’s wrong with society is that there’s too much value put in the personal lives of those who are well known through entertainment. If some of these people don’t live up to a personal standard then don’t consume their product and if you choose let that persons faux pas be a teachable moment for you and your children. PERIOD. I really can’t stand the high and mighty act…and miss cookie it’s “Where are the morals”.

    • Cookie

      Ok then, she is not an embarassment to her race. She is an embarassment to ALL women. I can understand one child maybe two children…but five kids??? Where is the sense and sensibility? Money don’t make it right for Lauren to have loose morals anymore than it does for the Mafia to kill people. Money does not give permission to live any kind of way. This brings imbalance to the universal laws of being.

      • PAT

        I am a woman and she definitely is not an embarassment to me and many other women I’m sure. The last time I checked there wasn’t any laws that prohits having children. She has the right to have as many as she wants. She’s a strong, independent and successful Sistah who’s not asking you,me or society for anything. She can provide for her children and give them everything they need and that whats important. Having a husband guarantees what?

      • SarahL

        So fornication’s okay as long as there’s no evidence of it (in the form of children)? That’s what you seem to be saying.

      • reece

        Who says the eurocentric concept of marriage is the only way for stability, many persons are ‘married’ and the lifestlye is not good for the kids, they are miserable and unhappy, what if they were married then divorces? ahe would be back right then single mom with 5 kids, my mom had 4 b4 marrying my father and all of us went to college, we were happy and stable!!!

    • http://ShowbizSpy Shari Weston

      Get a clue! It’s 2010…HELLOO?

      You don’t have to be married anymore to be a moral couple. Give me a break. You sound like one of those guys who want to cover their women in veils and hold them prisoner in their home. Take your primitive moral values back to your cave with you or get with the times! Most of us women don’t take that sh_t anymore!!! (Backwards idiot!)

  • Laura

    And could she look more beautiful in this photo? What a beauty!

    • JJ

      A BEAUTY?

  • Me Me

    So Cookie is it because what you see about her causing you to say she’s a bad role model? Who is a good role model? Everyone has their shortcomings. If she didn’t have the children out of wedlock would she be a good role model to you? What if she was an alcoholic and you didn’t know about it? Come on people.

  • Pati

    Welcome back girl, It is time. love your music and your children are blessed to have you.

    • wow

      You know there are times when a person will say something, and be so ignorant,in sensitive and plain old cold hearted… I address the need to place judgement and become so involved and so consumed by the actions of another ( in whom one doesnt really KNOW personally) that people like you COOKIE remain stagnate and trapped within you own mind. The issue you have with lauryn hill is much bigger thatn her having five children out of wed lock or even having the five children at all. I do believe your issue is more so with YOU I am most certain that your life, my poor soul is not all that clean which brings me to this. UNTIL ONE HAS MADE CORRECTION AND HAS IMPLEMENTED GROWTH IN THERE OWN LIFE IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT THEY WILL TRY TO DISCREDIT THE GROWTH IN ANOTHER! now the real issue that you have with her miss cookie could be that you cant keep a man, cant have children, or rich, or quiet as its kept EVEN BLACK! You may also be envious of her spiritual connection to the MOST HIGH whom she so openly serves… faults or not! we all have them including you! and you may want to take a good look WITHIN before you post anything else negative in this re-guard because most of these responses are directed to you… and you know what they say ” IF ITS EVERYONE ELSE ITS PROBABLY YOU” So just from one being who is constantly evolving to the next i encourage you to take a good look at YOURSELF and check yourself cause you lack something that you Hate that she has….. With that being said I am Honored to know she has been obedient and knows that it is her season to spring forth and bless us with her GOD given talent… God bless you lauryn and all those who posted on this site in her defense…..

  • camille

    “with the same man you dolt. you must be over 40. either that or we’ve somehow been transported back to 1953.”

    Well Angela i am over 40 and I LOVE LAURYN HILL!!! Sure I wish she was married, but she is far from a bad example of a mother. Ive been around long enough to know that being a good mom takes more than being married. All her kids have the same daddy and that says a lot. Plus she puts her kids first, married or not. Thats the main thing. All i want her to do is sing again and rescue us from this horrible music that some of these little girls are putting out today.

    COME ON BACK LAURYN!!!!!

  • shel

    Wow, the poor grammar on this site is amazing!

    At least she GOT A MAN do you? …Go back to school, Tracey.

    It amazes me that people are saying it’s old-fashioned to think that a woman has to be married. Boundaries are very blurred. What woman makes that decision 5 times? I have to wonder if all were planed.

    I think if all preferred, 90% of people would have kids within marriage as opposed to an accidental preg.

    People are giving her free reign just because they say she is talented. As if that is the basis for being a good mom.

    Dumbest reasoning I have ever seen is on this site.

    • Motha of 4

      Watch your grammar Boo. I think you mean I planned . You are up here talking about people and their spelling just watch how you spell your words

      • JJ

        The grammer used around here is disgusting. its a tell-all of our pulick skool sistem.

    • Renee

      Talent is not a basis for being a good mom, but neither is being a wife. I would agree she would be a better role model if she were, but her children are well taken care of. Because she has chosen (or whatever circumstances have allowed her) to be unmarried, have no bearing on her talent, and the respect her fans have for her.

      Again I would personally want to have my children with my husband, but the truth is things may not work out that way. I may get married, get divorced, get pregnant, be alone and have to take care of my children. It may not be in that order but if it’s not, that does not mean I should not rise to the challenge and be a damn good mother despite not having a ring.

  • RachelJ

    Too Cookie and others of her mindset:
    If you’re expecting Ms. Hill or other celebrities to act as “role models”, than you are presumptuous, as well as pathetic. PARENTS are supposed to be role models to their children, not celebrities. Celebrities are people, just as we are, and shouldn’t be held to a higher standard, because they make a bit more cash. Just because someone doesn’t live according to YOUR standards, doesn’t mean that they lack morals. As far as Ms. Hill being “an embarrassment to her race”…funny, I’m not the least bit embarrassed, because her behavior and life choices have no reflection on my life. If, indeed, you are Black, and HER actions make YOU feel embarrassment, than once again…you are pathetic!

  • Brazilian

    Your headline is so wrong and unfair. No wonder some celebrities retreat and stay in seclusion for years…because of negativity that the media project in their lives. Was that headline necessary? She is obviously an excellent mother and has taken time to commit to her family. Stop being jackass and put a more positive spin on your articles…ugh!

    Welcome back Lauren. We have miss you!

    Personally, I don’t give a damn about how many kids she has or whatever. I’m a fan of her music..and i’m glad she’s back. I’m just not feeling this article. She sounds like she’s a bit too into herself.

  • Irene

    I am glad This wonderful singer is coming back , Lauren is awesome , Okay maybe she is Racist and not a GOOD Role model , But a Mother of five and she has stayed out of the limelight for them which is a Huge Plus I know many mothers who have left their kids on the roadside for their careers and Drugs , she has the same man and has allowed him to pursue his career now it’s her turn , she’ll be fine and she has been so Missed welcome back Lauren glad to hear your voice again!!! Really no one here should try to judge but they do like it is their right , Judge not less you be Judged !!

    • Motha of 4

      Spell her name right. It’s Lauryn

  • Really?

    This post is about Lauryn making her come back. I don’t understand why some of you are focused on her marital status when she had her children. This is a talented woman who has taken long breaks during her career to raise her 5 children. She is very talented and look forward to hearing her new music. Best of luck Lauryn!!

    RBhappy is not a happy camper actually they are haters from waaay back, you can have success also just quit hating on others. And see if you are cauca.. you are a racist cause you dont know jack about her. HATER….

    • RBhappy

      Not a hater just pointing out a fact that is well known. I suppose you know jack about her because you are black too. You don’t know her any better than any other fan. By the way. What is a cauca. Or are you so uneducated you can’t spell entire words.

      • Smiley

        A well known fact, that has been proven to be fiction:

      • RBhappy

        Not what I was referring to smiley. However, using snopes is like using wikipedia as a source. Very unreliable.

      • Smiley

        Okay, so where is YOUR source proving that she’s racist?

  • Markeysha

    I dont care if the lady has 10 kids out of wedlock, what does that have to do with her music? NOTHING!!! Being married before you have kids does not make you a better mother or better role model. It only means that you got to the alter 7 months before the baby was born:)

    • Jilly

      Oh Lisa! … OR she and her kids father are in a relationship and never chose marriage. Who says she’s “suffered” about not being married. Many people don’t think marriage is such a desirable thing. I never considered any other option, but today I’m not sure I’d need the ceremony. Divorce statistics are very high, so the ceremony can’t be all that helpful. In my view, it’s the quality of the relationship, not the certificate.

  • http://Yahoo Lisa

    Stop Hating Haters, I’m sure Lauren has suffered enough as to why she is not married.

  • Single Mom

    Hey Lauren…I had the chance to read the report about your comment that was made to the people at the Vatican and I TOTALLY agree with what you said! The Catholic priests have been sexually, emotionally, etc. these kids for WAY to long and have not shown NO remorse for what they have done and still doing, and it is really pathetic! If a child can’t be and feel safe at home and they can’t be and feel safe at church, they are doomed! There is nowhere else for them to go! ALL CHILDREN HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE AND FEEL SAFE! NOT MADE TO FEEL THAT THEY ARE NOT WORTHY AND MUST ALLOW THESE JERKS….CATHOLIC CLERGY TO ABUSE THEM SEXUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY! YES, THEY NEED TO REPENT! NO, I AM FAR FROM BEING “PERFECT” BUT AT LEAST I AM NOT GOING AROUND ABUSING INNOCENT KIDS WHO CAN’T DEFEND FOR THEMSELVES!

    I wonder if she still has a problem with white people buying her albums????

    • RachelJ

      I doubt it, because she never said she had a problem with white people buying her albums. Do your research.

  • AMD

    Look @ all these judgmental pathetic ppl on here. Yes, she’s had 5 kids by a man she’s in a relationship w/ and their not married. And, what of it??? Like others have said…all of her kids are by the same man she has been w/ for yrs.! Couples like Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt, Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins (who broke up earleir this yr.), Kurt Russell & Goldie Hahn all have been together for yrs., never got married, and had kids out of wedlock. I NEVER heard ppl b*tching about them. I guess, it’s only a bad thing if a young black woman is w/ a man for yrs. and has childrfen by him, w/out marrying him. Ppl kill me w/ their double standard bullsh*t.

  • AMD

    Anyway back to the REAL TOPIC…
    I’m glad Lauryn’s returning to her musical roots. I hope her new music is the same as the “Miseducation…” album. God knows we desperately need some good music like hers nowadays.

  • Will-Edward

    Lauryn Hills true fans will always love her no matter what the haters post. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album was amazing and is arguably the best work and talent to grace the ’90s. That voice, her style, her messages, her artistry and her beauty captivated all of us and made us love her. So post your negativity all you want. When her next piece of work drops, we will all be there to lift it up….because we still got love for her. And we always will!

  • Tracey

    Shel

    Relax sweetie and read between the lines! At least she GOT A MAN do you? …Go back to school, Tracey.

    LOL I am sure my degree is higher and more active than yours:) Yes, I used those words loosely but the bottom line is that she appears to be in a strong enough relationship to feel secure enough with herself to have 5 children by the same man. As you know there are some women that have children out of wedlock by different men. Ms. Shel that was my point sweetie. Oh yes, since you are checking on grammar please do some spell checking on a couple of your words.

    Good Night

    Degreed Woman!

  • Will-Edward

    Yall please stop giving these haters the attention they obviously cannot get anywhere else. They are not worth it. They are just here to get under your skin and when you respond, they are winning. Ignor them because they know not what they speak about. Come on back Lauryn! Save the music industry. I know it’s a big task to ask but you can do it easily. These 10, 12 and 15 yr olds are killing the industry. And Trey Songs too!!! Lord knows he can’t sing his way out of a wet paper bag. Just looks will not get it!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!

  • bobby penn

    i’m happy lauren is singing again i’ve always loved her voice, her personal life is hers don’t throw rocks in a glass house

  • sooner

    TO LAURYN: WE LOVE U!!

    to you fools: Choosing to have children and not marry is not necessarily “immoral”. you freaks that want to preach that might need to grab a dictionary (or better yet, study ethics or philosophy) before turning someones personal choice into a morality or racial issue. There is nothing wrong with what she is doing with her life unless she feels so. Your beliefs are not everyone’s… wake up! I admire her strength and have waited a LONG time for her return!!

  • Colby

    Lauryn is racist. I love her music, her voice, but cant get past the fact that she would rather her kids starve than for a white person to buy her albums. i lost all respect for her with her racist comments.

  • Phonebreaker

    Another Lib who could give a $hit about her family or responsibilities as a mother, what a big suprise. I think she’s in line for a cabinet position on O’s team as the director of Family services, oh wait nix that, she doesn’t have the required felony.

    • http://yahoo Nedra

      YEA AND PRAY FORSELF ALSO

  • VeritasRex

    Lauryn does not look well. Lots of makeup, and something haunting about the eyes.

    I am a fan, hell, I named my son Zion, but I can not look beyond the hurt in her eyes and in her actions: out of wedlock children, unprofessional behavior, sparadic thought patterns when speaking, this year’s cali performance with bizarre hair and behavior.

    She does not appear to be well, and someone who loves her needs to counsel her toward getting help, if they have not already.

    I am gravely concerned for her mental well being. All of the signs are there.

    I shall pray for her. Amen.

        YOU’re suppose to idolized GOD not a man or woman idiot

  • Kirk

    People, people, people, please stop looking at these performers as role models! Parents need to be their children’s role models. Period.

    Beyond the talent to sing, dance, or catch a ball, it would appear that the majority of these types (at least the ones that make the news) are devoid of character. It’s a good thing they have money, otherwise they would be worse off than we plebes. But at least they can buy the constant rehab and good ‘lawyerin’ they seem to always need.

    Just see people like Lauryn Hill for what they are -people who entertain us — no more, no less. And if the particular entertainer/athlete has that many flaws that you just can’t stomach them, then don’t listen or watch them; it’s that simple. And in my judgement there are a lot like that so I ignore them.

    Truth be told I have been a fan of the great Bob Marley’s music for 30 years. I saw him in live performance, and actually met him — shook his hand. But ‘poor’ Bob was so high he probably thought he was talking to a lamp-post. His lifestyle may have even killed him. So it would be sheer buffoonery for me to idolize him or any other.

  • Kirk

    And just to add — I don’t know much about Lauryn Hill except to say I saw her in Sister Act with Whoopi Goldberg. Talent-wise she seemed pretty good!

  • Miss Cheryl

    Wait a minute…she has a problem w/white people buying her albums??? Wow….racist.

  • jaques meoff

    this woman has an inflated sense of her own self worth and perhaps she could use some psychiatric help.. but she never said that she hates white folks.the rumor was started by somebody on the howard stern show.. race doesn’t matter its all on independent achievement that one should be known. to actually hate someone because of the color of their skin is about the dumbest thing on earth.. (btw) she sounds real good on a song with Curtis Mayfield called “here but im gone” peace..

  • It is what it is

    I’m so glad that she’s finally making a comeback. I miss her music. I don’t understand why people are out to judge her because she’s not married. That’s her business and no one elses. She has five children by the same man. She’s not killing anyone or doing any harm. The only bad role models are the ones that are judging people for the most insignificant things. Who are you do judge anyone for anything. No one person is better than the next in this world. And as for her being racist, whe live in a world where racism still exist but people just choose not to talk about. So just because she chooses to expose those who are racist doesn’t making her racist. It just makes her a voice for the people. A voice for those who may be afraid to speak up. And for those who are talking about someones grammar because they have nothing better to say; you are acting more like 2nd or 3rd grader. Grow up people.

  • Dionne

    I wonder how many of those people judging Ms. Hill have had pre-martial sex and or abortions. Yes, marriage is a beautiful thing but we live by Grace not by Law. We were all born into sin. Love thy neighbor. Keep Lauren and family in your prayers.

  • http://none Brian

    Lauryn Hill has made numerous racial remarks about white people in general. It’s funny to me that she doesn’t want them in her music videos or producing her albums but she sure doesn’t have a problem spending the money she makes from white people buying her records.

    • kim

      so it ok for crackers to be racist( since u want to call us negroes) but it not ok for black people to do it and if you think about it we have a reason to be racist, if u didnt want us here u should of left us where we was at

  • polly

    I was at at a concert she played at in Palm Beach, F lorida. She made everyone wait almost two hours, played for ten minutes. I was back stage and witnessed her throw a tantrum and make serious racist remarks. After that I was no longer a fan of hers and consider her a discrace to both white and black women of all ages.

  • truth

    all of you know so much and are so well traveled, give me a fuckin break, you are held back by the the fact you are addicted to strong beleif that you understand something special and progressive, you are drunk on your selves and dont see any value in tradition. a educated fool tends to be progressive. But real smart men are progressive traditionalists. When everything is completely watered down there will be nothing left, the strongest mmedicine usually tastes the worst so i am sorry if this puts a bad taste in your mouths

  • Angee

    I Love Lauryn Hill! I am glad to see her getting back out there.

  • AudioGuy

    I have always enjoyed Lauryn’s music but she IS NOT this loving humanitarian that she likes to portray. I am an audio professional by trade and a number of my colleagues that have recorded and/or mixed her records said she is absolutely terrible to work with. She treats her entire staff like dirt and no one is even allowed to LOOK HER IN THE EYES! Yes, that is in the contact. She is an absolute wack job.

INSTEAD OF JUDGING GET UR ASSES OUT THERE AND DO SOMETHING POSITIVE, INSPIRE SOMEONE, DO SOME COMMUNITY WORK, DON’T SIT BEHIND A COMPUTER SCREEN AND CRITICIZE SOMEONE WHO HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN YOU HAVE.

  • Jenny Gianone

    Lauren Hill is a psycho. She went to Ja-fakin’-ville and got her a** handed to her and is now lookin’ to make a comeback? Sucks on way too many levels. First, Alicia “Superwoman” Keys gets preggers by a married, money-hungered crackhead (Swizz-BEAST), then Fantasia fakes suicide after it’s revealed she’s been polishing someone else’s husband’s nob, now this? All these crazy, god-for-nothin’ hoes should do whatever they’ve been doing and let someone else shine!

    Lauren Hill?

    She’s like the ’90′s revisited!

    Judgement = putting oneself higher

    Concern = putting oneself equal

    idoletry = putting another higher

  • Hoes R NOT COOL

    well,its bad to have kids and you don’t have a sound foundation for them. Its actually selfish.
    Ms.Hill is smart & talented but she is a lowly person & hypocrite.
    She is not married to Mr.Marley because he is married to someone else whom he has children with!
    He lives with his wife in jamaica NOT Ms.Hill.
    Ms. Hill lives in South Orange, NJ with her parents.
    Mr.Marley is NOT the only married man she had an affair with. She also had an affair with MARRIED Wykleff Jean.
    Yes she is a racist who grew up in the suburbs & would come down to east Ornage & newark, to find her “blackness” because she is an idiot who feels you must be a little ghetto to truly be black.
    God forbid black people have morals(sarcasm in case you missed it).
    She does drugs too,weed for sure & maybe other stuff.

    The hoes she speaks of in her music are her ownself.
    She pretends to be a role model, she put her self in that position, calling for girls to have empowerment. Sounds good and if done right it is…

    Being a homewrecking whore is NOT empowering women.
    Ms. Hill IS A SLUT, A HOME WRECKING SLUT.
    SHE I NOT A GOOD MOTHER, HER POOR PARENTS TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS.
    SHE IS A RACIST. A STUPID RACIST WHO FORGETS HER KIDS’ GRANDAD(BOB MARLEY) WAS 1/2 WHITE!

    HER BEAUTY,HMMMM YOU PEOPLE CLEARLY NEVER SEEN HER WITHOUT MAKE UP,LOL. BUT I TRULY BELIEVE HER UGLY CHARACTER IS WHAT EFFACES HER BEAUTY.
    HAVING POOR MORALS IS NOT OK,NO MATTER HOW TALENTED YOU ARE & ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE IN THE LIMELIGHT.
    WHAT HAS THIS COUNTRY COME TO WHEN PEOPLE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE DUGGERS HAVING 19 KIDS,WHOM THEY TAKE ARE OF NOT WLEFARE AND THEY’VE NEVER BEEN ON WELFARE, BUT SLEEPING WITH MARRIED MEN IS OK,HAVING SEVERAL KIDS OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE IS OK???

    OH AND YES, I DO HAVE MORALS. NO HYPOCRITES HERE. I’M YOUNGER THAN LAUREN,RAISED IN THE GHETTO, NOT JUST VISITED THE GHETTO TO FEEL BLACKER,I GOT MARRIED(VIRGIN) THEN CONCEIVED AND I AM STILL MARRIED FOR 12YRS!

    SO, I ‘GOT’ A MAN; A HUSBAND, FOR REAL. HE MARRIED ME WITHOUT SLEEPING WITH ME FIRST & IS REALLY HERE FOR ME & THE KIDS NOT JUST WHEN HE WANTS SEX,LIKE LAUREN’S BABY DADDY…
    BEING A CERTAIN ETHNICITY OR OF LOWER FINACIAL STATUS(LAUREN WAS NEVER POOR) DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN HAVE POOR CHARACTER.

    I KNOW ONE THING THOUGH MY BABY GIRL WILL NOT BE LOOKING UP TO WHORIN’ HILL…. SORRY FOR ALL CAPS IT GOT STUCK SO I WAS NOT SHOUTING.PEASE EXCUSE TYPOS ASLO. TOO EARLY IN THE MORNING MY BRAIN IS OFF,LOL. I GUESS THATS WHY I BOTHERED TO COMMENT,LOL………

    Wow, it’s amazing how hateful and ugly some people still are, these folks have no clue, absolutely no life, Lauryn is a great talent, she now has seven children which is a wonderful thing in itself, and want to return to music, something that she does really well and loves, why can’t you just be happy for her. No instead all these hateful and wrong comments about past instances, that are totally false!!!!! Whites and blacks alike love her music, not only hers but many artists, stop all the ugly prejudice and nastiness and get on with living!!! Love you Lauryn!!!!

  • KeepingItReal

    To all the people saying that she is a bad role model because she has 5 children out of wedlock:

    Are you saying that none of you have had sex “out of wedlock?” Or, are you condoning the sex but…just don’t get pregnant?

    All of her children are by the same man that she’s been with for years. So…because their government (Jamaica) hasn’t official approved of their union…they shouldn’t have children? SMH (shaking my head)

    Hypocrites!

  • Troy

    I can always tell when white people come on these sites and spew hateful and irrelevant comments such as her being a whore or that she’s racist because their tone and words are heartless, hateful and degrading. Considering that everyone is not marriage material and everyone doesn’t perceive marriage as a means to love someone doesn’t mean having children and not being married a bad thing. Some people don’t want that commitment and who knows what their “personal” thoughts are about not being married or their relationship is in general unless it comes from ‘his’ or ‘her’ mouth, not someone who decides they want to make up things to sell papers. She does have 5 children and raising five children can be a job in itself, it also can be hard as far as being mentally overwhelming and holding onto a relationship, whether it be good or bad. Apparently she loves him enough to stay with him and to have five children by him, instead of sleeping around, but again who are we to judge when none of us are perfect. I doubt very seriously that she made a comment about not wanting white people to purchase her music when in fact, she had a large white following with the fugees and as a solo artist. There is no doubt that journalist, and the news media take a lot of words in interviews with entertainers, out of context and there are those who aren’t confident enough in their jobs as journalist to print an article that is based on truth, but rather twist the truth to sell a story. Whatever Lauryn was dealing with, I’m am glad she’s past it and wish her much more success in the future. I’m really feeling the new song ‘Repurcussions’….welcome back sis.

  • Robert

    Half you you people are so silly. Look at the headline: No qualms about leaving 2 year old..etc” Makes is sound like she abandoned her kids. My GOD ppl get a grip. As far as she not being a’role model’ um…Angelina Jolie is all I can say. At least Lauren didn’t have an affair with a MARRIED man.Although Angie is treated like frigin mother of the year.
    Its called being human ppl!!! I dont blame her for staying out of the spotlight. She has talent- lets leave it at that.

  • Tee

    For all of you people who condemn Lauyrn Hill for having five children out of wedlock, please help me understand whose definition of marriage you are living by. If you are Christian, then where does it say in the Bible that you must be married in a church or by a Justice of the Peace. Actually, it does not define HOW to marry. From my understanding of the Bible–and trust me when I say it is pretty thorough, God defines marriage by the sexual act (consumation). Even in the US (laws based on the Bible) a couple can annul its marriage if it is not consumated in a given period of time. As such, all of you MORAL people that have sex with multiple people (FORNICATION)–you are married to every last one of them and therefore have commited ADULTRY. Maybe Lauryn has only had sex with this one man and is married to him in the eyes of God. That would make all of the rest of you throwing stones hipocrites. Food for thought.

    • Tee

      Oh, and by the way, please excuse the typos in the previous post.

She need to come back and rid her self oh him.He is what brought her down.All this has been head line news so Im not making it up

  • nat

    first of all – read a book. black folks can’t be racist. we can be prejudice – and many of us are, for VERY good reason – but we cannot be racist. sencondly, lauryn never said those things – do your homework. lastly, white people are SO quick to call a black person that doesn’t subscribe to their ideology a racist – when all they really are is a black person who has decided/learned to love him/herself despite living in a white supremecist capitalistic patriarchal world that tells him/her that he/she is worthless – on a regular basis via every forum that exists. See – what you don’t get is that, for people of color, love and pride for ones culture doesn’t indicate the presence of hatred for another culture. Take your head out of your own ass for a split second to REALLY learn about others before you judge an entire race. We know you all very well. We’ve had no choice in the matter, frankly.

  • Love

    Boo Boo Boo…i’m a mixed child & am part “black” .. and i still refuse to support her… I loved her when she was with the Fugees ’cause I thought they were deep and real..but when she did mention that stupid comment about her music not being for “white” ppl..I cut her out of my music rotation..and i’m not even “white” … to say anything “Racist” period is wrong and should not b supported…she could TRY to come out again..but once again, it will be a failure…the Music industry hasn’t missed her at all.. do u want to follow a Beautiful Soul?? Look to SADE … because she is the TRUTH…

  • ForHim

    The time comes very soon when the wheat will be separated from the chaff; in other words, the righteous will be separated from those who live in sin and deny the Lord Jesus. To deny Him is to live however one wants, not according to His Holy Word. It clearly states in Ephesians the importance of marriage and how God feels about it. The Holy Bible also states clearly in regards to hate and judgement. The Lord is the Great Judge of all; however, for those who live in His Will and Word, we are given the wisdom through His Holy Spirit to discern sin when we see it. To live a Godly life is the best gift a parent can give to their children. If you have read my statement and feel that I have been judgemental, I am only quoting the words of the Lord. If His words enrage you, then it is the sinful nature inside of you that is at odds against what I’ve said here. Seek His forgiveness for your sins before the soon return of the Lord Jesus. Do not recall these words of mine when it is too late and you are cast forever into Hell.

    She is awesome….It’s great to see her back!

    One the best voices ever….

  • Kayjay

    Call her a whore, bitch, whatever but the fact is she will be in the studio making money and feeding her 5 bastards, according to someone on here while the same people will be praying that they dont get fired or laid off from work….. Welcome back Miss Hill..have fun and ignore those negative people!

  • cheydra

    What i find most amusing is how people feel the need to comment on how others choose to live there lives. What the article states is that she is going to sing again, and that is a blessing..Have you ever just closed your eyes and listened to her voice she is absolutely amazing with a powerful God given gift. And God if I remember correctly is our only judge. So instead of doing that!! How bout we leave that to the Boss man…God Bless Miss Hill and welcome back you have been missed!!!!

    I’m white and I hate to say this, but all you haters that are white and dissin’ Lauryn for her racist remarks, TRY to look PAST your noses! I don’t know if she really said all the things I read here, but let’s just say for a minute that she did. Did it ever cross your minds that she might have been abused or traumatized by some red-neck, white ass-hole when she was younger? Or maybe scared and victimized by someone at some point in her life? Get a clue…Racism and prejudice are ALWAYS instilled by someone, like parents or they come about by a very bad experience. They NEVER just pop into somebody’s head out of nowhere.
    I will still buy Lauryn’s music because I happen to love the lyrics she writes. On the other hand, knowing what was stated here about her remarks, if I went to one of her concerts, I would be respectful and not sit front row center to make her uncomfortable while she’s performing. The difference between ignorance and wisdom is that ignorance judges and hates, and wisdom tries to understand that there’s always a reason. Wisdom also lets us know when to be bold and speak up…and also when to back down and say nothing…

    I still love U Lauryn and I’ll pray that one day whatever made U bitter will go away so you can heal

    J.A.N…..Just Another Nigger. Take care of my kids? Hell no, I will have someone else do it. I can’t believe the press gives this cunt any attention.

  • Miysha

    Kevin…come on dude…really? Seek help.

  • Miysha

    I agree with you, Cheydra. The voice is pure beauty.

  • Cuchino

    To all of you who have keyed in on this idiocrasy of a “title” to her story, get real!! She NEVER said she’s “happy” to leave her baby, she simply said she’s in a place where she can do music and go on the road and not be overly worried about her children….the youngest being two!! Damn, they do have a father!!!!! Lauryn Hill is one of the best to ever do it!!

  • Matt

    I swear EVERYBODY IS A FUCKING CRITIC…and what does it really matter?? LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY and stop throwing your stupid opinions out there if its purpose is not to UP-BUILD, MOTIVATE, OR ENCOURAGE! WE ALL ARE GOING TO DIE IN A MATTER OF YEARS ANYWAY SO FOCUS YOUR ENERGY ON WHAT YOUR DOING AND WHERE YOUR GOING!!!! UGH to all you NEGATIVE, JUDGMENTAL, CRITICAL ASS PEOPLE!

    I’m glad Lauryn is stepping out and letting her voice be heard again! I’m glad for her she has 5 kids that SHE IS RAISING AND PROVIDING FOR!! I AM GLAD SHE IS DOING HER…..SO GO FIND YOURSELF(WHOEVER)SOME BUSINESS AND DO YOU!!!!

  • carmel

    so much anger and judgement, have we all ALWAYS done wuts right, have we never done anything that was considered wrong. people need to sweep around their own front doors before they start sweeping around others. i am really shocked at some of the comments that i am reading. It’s such a shame the society we live in. No wonder there is no hope for the future.

  • DC

    This is so sad, The white are stating ” she doesn’t want us to buy her music” yet they took the time to read the article and even more time to make a commit.
    I am white and I have always been a huge fan of Ms. Hill and never once have I heard this woman say such a thing.

    Lauryn Hill is back! and I will surely be her #1 fan. Black,White,Blue-Balls and all.

  • Pecan tan

    Lauryn Hill has been and still is a great inspiration in my life. Last time I checked everyone is human and so makes mistakes, but how many of you that are critics can say the same for yourself. Who have you inspired? And if I should dwell on the pass of our black history then I would be considered in the racism category.
    People live and let live, Life is too dame short to be negative about other peoples issues.
    I would love to see you behind close doors I can only image what you want to keep from the public’s eye.

  • sd

    I love you all the way gal,and am so glad you are back,Botswana.

  • shae

YES MAA’AAM Angelina Jolie is a WHORE – she got w/ a married man and had them kids w/ no plans of wedding!!!!!!
    If she dont want ya’ll listenig to her music DONT !!!

    white people dont need to be a part of everything!!!!! Leave her alone!!!

  • ARealBlkSista

    How can anyone of the caucasian race judge any black person on race relations, when you have not walked in our shoes. Imagine when you are little and finding out about your ancestors, you know the ones that were beaten, raped, and killed for the color of their skin, only to go through life not knowing or having the pleasure of tracing your history or roots. It hurts and we have to find a way past it, it usually happens in our teens to twenty years, we get mad at first, b/c it’s hard to understand how or why it happened. And then we forgive. In order to get past anything in life, you always need an understanding, that’s all. It’s not that we are hating on you, just get mad at what happened. Peace out.

    I am so grateful that you have decided to come back! It’s been a long time coming. My prayer is that you be all that you need to be for God and then yourself. Your music will tell it all to others. Be Blessed!!!!

  • Dr.MichPhD.

    So much negativity and hatred…I suggest we spend more time dealing with the issues in our own lives. I am appalled at some of the things that I’ve read today! If ignorance is bliss then, some of you must be ORGASMIC!

  • Barry

    She doesn’t have to worry about THIS white person buying any of her music.

    • M
