Ooh La La La

Lauryn Hill is back…FINALLY

Rumour has it that there will be a reunion…

well fans can hope, but I guess it doesn’t help when The Fugees performed live at the Harmony Festival…back in JUNE!


I love Lauryn’s laid back style…but this looks a bit whack!What’s up with the jacket?

Lovin’ her hair though…natural suits her best! I on the other hand after trying it last year I have decided that…unless I have a hair stylist with me 24/7 to tong and do up my hair I will not be have an afro anytime soon.


Eyes… those eyes!


Look at her funky style!

This is what I’m talking…

But listening to where she’s at below ::


On why she stopped releasing music:

“There were a number of different reasons,” she says. ”But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. In fact, as musicians and artists, it’s important we have an environment — and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the [music] industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society, or at least some aspect of society. And it’s important that people be given the time that they need to go through, to grow, so that the consciousness level of the general public is properly affected.  Oftentimes, I think people are forced to make decisions prematurely. And then that sound radiates.”

On her return to the stage:

“I don’t know if you know this, but I have five children,” she says. ”The youngest is 2 now, so she’s old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she’s going to be OK. That’s one reason [Hill is starting to perform again]. And I think it’s just time. I’m starting to get excited again. Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first. I think people might realize, you know, ‘We love the way she sounds, we love the music, but I think we just love how fearless she is. How boundless she is, when it comes to what she wants to do.’ And I think that can be infectious.”

One of my favourite artists of all times just wrapped it up right there and then…

I’m obsessed with people who have a passion, be it muscians, artists, designers, creators… all of them maybe that’s why I’ve been dating musicians lately. Because like myself these people put their art first.  And that is probably why I get slightly obsessed with my crushes, it’s probably unhealthy but oh well you live and you learn.
