Lauryn Hill Returns After Her Last Engagement: Jail Time

Lauryn HillDon’t let Ms. Hill’s prison time turn you off to her music, after all, it seems no one else is too bothered by three months in jail followed by three months under house arrest. Tickets begin at $106.60 for her two November 27 back-to-back performances at the Bowery Ballroom.

Lauryn Hill was caught not paying her taxes. Even though she was able to pay the $900,000 she owed the IRS at the last moment right after signing a lovely record deal with Sony, she still had to spend 6 months in government custody. Oh, she did not exactly serve the house arrest time yet. She managed to have that postponed so she could arrange her “Homecoming” performances.

The shows will take place at 6:00 PM and 10:30 PM at the Bowery Ballroom, 6 Delancey Street.
