Welp, Lauryn Hill Showed Up Three Hours Late To A Performance

If there’s one thing we know about Lauryn Hill, it’s that time management is not her forte. In fact, it may be her greatest weakness. Last night, she was once again late to a show in Pittsburgh, leaving fans furious and demanding refunds. 

As noted by several attendees, the “Doo Wop” singer arrived three hours late to her show that was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. The house was packed and her band was on stage the entire time––until she finally showed up at 11 p.m. 

Black Twitter promptly responded in the most hilarious way:

The last time she was incredibly late to a show (four hours), friend and fellow musician Questlove penned a letter to her about punctuality and respecting fans. “Four hours on their feet is inconsiderate and uncalled for,” he said. 

In response, Lauryn noted that her chakra wasn’t aligned. “I don’t show up late to shows because I don’t care,” she said. “The challenge is aligning my energy with the time, taking something that isn’t easily classified or contained, and trying to make it available for others.”

The reason behind this latest incident has not be revealed. But we’re thinking people who buy tickets to Lauryn Hill shows should just plan to arrive a couple of hours late to avoid the frustration.
