The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

7 May


Sooo….Lauryn Hill just got busted for not paying over1 million smackers in back taxes and was sentenced to three months in jail.  And pay back The Man.  The fact that another big money maker evaded their taxes isn’t the real story here.  It’s Lauryn’s reaction to her arrest.

Lauryn claimed that the music industry was mean and threatened her with blacklisting and bad reviews.  Which is why she decided to dip out of the music scene.  Apparently the tax evasion took place within this career purgatory.  Apparently she offered up a string of excuses for her violations, but to them the judge said ‘Poo Poo”.

So when all else fails…throw down the slavery card.  Lauryn told that judge, “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.  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.”

Well, Lauryn.  Let me share my own story of economic slavery.

“My parents and teachers never told me nothing about filing taxes and mathematical equations of refusals to cooperate.  I’m a child of a preacher man.  I got myself into an uncomfortable situation because I showed up at the post office 15 minutes before midnight on April 15th and paid a hobo $25 to do my taxes.  (True story.)  Now you want to impose regulations and tutorials and whatnot?  Psht. Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

    She is such a ridiculous person. Even Madonna isn’t this annoying.
