    Lauryn Hill gets 3 months for failing to pay taxes

    Lauryn Hill gets 3 months for failing to pay taxes

    What did she say?

    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill stood in federal court Monday and compared her experience in the music business to the slavery her ancestors endured before a judge sentenced her to three months in prison for failing to pay about $1 million in taxes over the past decade.

    "I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them," Hill said before U.S. Magistrate Madeline Cox Arleo. "I had an economic system imposed on me."




    Did she really equate her "problems" with "slavery"????

    I respect her as an artist, but what she said is just stupid.

    Oh, how terrible it must be to be a multimillionaire musician.

    It's enslaving
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    This is akin to when Adrian Peterson said of the NFL, "It's like modern-day slavery."

    Brainwashing is scary.

    If slavery earns me a couple million in royalties every year....sign me up! What a douchebag.
