About a week ago, Lauryn Hill became a trending topic on Twitter for all the wrong reasons, as her first UK live performance for nearly five years did not impress a lot of ticket buyers. According to various sources, she was around 90 minutes late, and proceeded to rearrange many of her songs beyond recognition. That show was the first of five UK dates, two of which were at the Brooklyn Bowl London this past Sunday and Monday (September 28 and 29).
At one of those two shows, as Lauryn Hill started to explain why she performs remixed versions of her songs, a fan shouted, “Why are you late?” Rather than the angry reaction that you might expect, Lauryn Hill took the time to explain why, commenting that she isn’t a “sheep” or a “robot” and that every day she’s dealing “with different issues.”
Check out the footage above. The response to being late comes after the 1 minute 20 second mark.
