The last time singer Lauryn Hill performed live in Atlanta, she left her most loyal fans feeling frustrated and unimpressed.
According to an industry insider who attended the concert for free at Atlanta's Center Stage theater in January, the 35-year-old mother of 5 hit the stage 3 hours late for her advertised 9 p.m. show.
Lauryn promptly confused her fans by announcing that she was tired of "playing the same music night after night." Hill told the shocked audience that she wanted to play something different. She then instructed her band to speed up the music, which rendered her classic hits unrecognizable.
The insider said Hill urged the audience to sing along, saying, "I want crowd participation."
"But nobody could participate because NOBODY knew the music!," said the fan. "Everybody was looking around like 'WHAT SONG IS THIS???'"
"It was new music completely," the frustrated fan continued. "The lyrics were the same, but you had to be on ecstasy to follow the music!"
Well, Lauryn Hill and her road manager, Atlanta's own sexual chocolate, Bumni, heard all the complaints and they want to make it up to enraged Atlanta fans. When Lauryn Hill hits the stage tonight in Atlanta, she promises to be on time and drama free.
Hill tweeted the following message to her followers on Twitter.com yesterday:
