CELEBS: Lauryn Hill Is Going To Jail.

Sup Travellers?! Do you know Lauryn Hill? She's a bit of a "prehistoric" singer but her old music is still played today. You may remember the hit song "Killing me softly" and "That Thing"? Well she's the singer behind those amazing songs. Anyway, according to reports from the popular entertainment website TMZ, Lauryn Hill is going to jail.



Singer Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in prison and three months in home confinement after pleading guilty to failing to pay taxes on almost $1 million in earnings. Hill told the judge that she had intended to pay the taxes ... eventually, but that she "needed to be able to earn so I could pay my taxes, without compromising the health and welfare of my children, and I was being denied that," the AP reports.

Additionally, TMZ reports, she told the court her situation was akin to slavery: "I was put into a system I didn't know the nature of. ... I'm a child of former slaves. I got into an economic paradigm and had that imposed on me," Hill said. "I sold 50 million units ... now I'm up here paying a tax debt. If that's not likened to slavery, I don't know what is."

I think Lauryn needs to manage her money a little better or just do some more live shows. If she's so eager to point out that she sold 50 million units why wasn't she so eager to spend some of that album money on paying taxes? But maybe her music has gotten old and no one wants to hire her for shows anymore. I mean, why hire Lauryn Hill when you got Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Rihanna, Rihaanna...lol. Anyway my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
