Comment by NotGonnaTellYouMyNameEdit



The article claims that Lauryn Hill denounced her fame writing more spiritual and introspective songs. This may be an assumption rather than fact.

My interpretation of Lauryn Hill's MTV performance shows that she offered her gift to the audience then and into the future as a text more than hip, cool, and possibly dumbing. And if her fame dropped as a result of this change in material it was consequential, not choice. As Lauryn stated: "Even if one person...."

And that one person has grown to include the entire R&B culture. Off the top of my head, take a listen to the Black Eyed Peas "Do What You Want", the final track of the Monkey Business album. It definitely has connotations pertinent to Lauryn Hill's "I find It Hard To Say (Rebel)".

anybody who doesn't think lauryn can hit the note in "to zion" should go to and search for lauryn hill.. there's several concert footage which proves she can hit it.. anyway why would a woman of her integrity claim she could hit it and not do it?? GET REAL

Orphaned references in Lauryn HillEdit

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Lauryn Hill's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Rollingstone":

  • From Dixie Chicks: Devenish, Colin. "Dixie Chicks Rock the Vote" Archived January 1, 2009, at the Wayback Machine, Rolling Stone, July 22, 2003. Retrieved August 19, 2008.
  • From Phil Collins: Greene, Andy (24 January 2014). "Phil Collins: 'I've Just Started to Work With Adele'". Rolling Stone. Retrieved 25 January 2014.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 07:53, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
