*Who does she think she is? That’s what some folks are asking after having to wait four hours for Lauryn Hill to show up for her show last Tuesday, December 28, in Brooklyn at the Williamsburg Music Hall.
As you can imagine, things got a tad testy. After members of the audience began throwing cups and bottles on stage, Hill’s keyboard player taped a sign to his kit that read “I was on time.”
NY Times says that when Hill arrived shortly after midnight she was carried in to avoid the snow. By the time she hit the stage some fans had makeshift signs that read “you just lost one” and “this is insulting.”
Even though Hill apologized for being late, she was anything but apologetic as she told fans:
“I spent my entire 20s sacrificing my life to give you love. So when I hear people complain, I don’t know what to tell you. I personally know I’m worth the wait.”
Watch Lauryn Hill deal with the audience in the clip below:
After performing her first song, she noticed the sign taped to the keyboard and tore it down, telling the band member, “you trying to escape the bottles and the cups. Next time you take it, you take it like a man. We in this together, brother.”
