Lauryn Hill Receives Backlash For Not Attending The 2016 Grammy Awards
|Lauryn Hill Receives Backlash For Not Attending The 2016 Grammy Awards|
Her rep released a statement saying that Hill never confirmed that she was performing with The Weeknd at the Grammys and that Recording Academy bigs jumped the gun by announcing her.
"The Grammys announced a performance by Ms. Lauryn Hill prematurely and without approval," the rep told reports in a statement.
The rep adds that Hill, 40, "had concerts all weekend," had no time to prepare and wasn't sure she'd be able to make it to Los Angeles in time for rehearsal.
"When it came to show time, we were told she was late – three minutes out, seven minutes out and she didn't make it," he said. "She didn't make the performance, she didn't get into the building on time."
