Lost One: Lauryn Hill Explains Why She’s Frequently Late to Her Shows

After the former Fugees singer arrived over two hours late to an Atlanta concert on May 6 and performed for less than 40 minutes, angry fans unsurprisingly took to social media to complain.

Feeling the backlash, the singer addressed her tardiness on Facebook saying, in part, “I don’t show up late to shows because I don’t care. And I have nothing but Love and respect for my fans. 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.”

“Because I care so deeply about the artistic process, I scrutinize, have perfectionist tendencies, and want space made for spontaneity, which is not an easy process, with the many moving parts on the road,” she adds.

Hill tells fans she’ll make up for the abbreviated and late shows writing, “We are figuring out a plan to make it up to you, and will announce details as soon as we have them.”
