RAPPER Lauryn Hill says she put her career on hold for all those years because she wanted a “real life” away from the spotlight.
The star — who won critical acclaim for her 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill – says she disappeared from the the public eye after becoming disillusioned with the music industry.
“I wanted a real life as well, out of public scrutiny,” said Hill, who raises five kids with longtime beau Rohan Marley.
“I wanted to be able to live, to reclaim my private life, to reclaim my individuality outside of mass media scrutiny. I wanted that freedom to do whatever I wanted to do.”
Hill recently revealed she’s close to releasing another album!
“We’re getting closer,” she said earlier this week. “We’re getting closer. That’s all I can say. I have respect for what people do. I also like to hear the eclectics, I like to hear the mixture. There’s a lot of different creative energies out there right now. I respect the different sounds that I’m hearing.
“It’s been such a long time since I’ve gotten my voice and my ideas [out]. In terms of collaborations, that’s not even something I’ve been thinking about per se. I’m happy that people are still making music. That we still have a platform with which to make music. It’s gonna be interesting to see what the future holds.”[imagebrowser id=584]
