LAURYN HILL ROCKS AT OUT PARKINSON’S CHARITY EVENT

Posted in Lauryn Hill on November 14, 2010 by fadedblog

Lauryn Hill briefly stepped out of seclusion and stepped into the spotlight on Saturday night (November 13).

Joined by The Roots, the 35-year-old recording musician/producer/actress performed on stage during the ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s’ event at The Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Hosted by the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the star-studded evening was filled with comedy and raggae with special musical guests all coming together to raise money for Parkinson’s research.

Lauryn is said to be back in the studio working on her sophomore album, according to former Fugees member Pras.

“I heard they’re trying to drop it by the summertime,” he was recently quoted as saying. “Let me tell you something. Somebody played me … something she worked on. Goosebumps. Like, 2015 Lauryn Hill.”

PRAS: LAURYN HILL IS “NOT CRAZY; SHE’S PERFECT”

In a revealing new video interview, former Fugees rapper Pras Michel opens up about his ex-bandmates Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean.

He blames their 1997 split on clashing egos and Lauryn and Wyclef’s rocky romantic relationship.

“I just made sure I kept the balance because you had two personalities,” he says. “If I became the third personality, it would have just split everything apart from the beginning.”

Following the split, the once-uber successful Lauryn has become a “recluse” and has exhibited some unusual behaviour, which Pras attributes to heartache, not craziness. “Her love was music and the group was her love. Obviously, she had a relationship with Wyclef also, but personal things get in the middle, the ego got into it. With fame, it does a lot things to you, and I think that really upset her,” he says. “When you sacrifice and you gave so much love to an entity and you don’t feel that love back, then … something kind of, like, triggers in your mind. … But, she’s not crazy; she’s fine, she’s perfect.”
