    Three months in the clink for tax evasion. Didn't file returns on $1.8M earned between 2005 and '07.

    She might win some but she just lost one.


    "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," Hill said.

    She continued, "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."

    All I know is that the thread title wins the Internet.

    Isn't she from Haiti or something? I suppose her parents could have been slaves before they came to the U.S.

    Or they could be from Jersey and she's talking out her ass.

    She's from Jersey, but she was in the Fugees with Wyclef and Pras, who are Haitian.

    How the f**k did she make $1.8M from 2005-2007? I don't think I've heard anything about her, at all, since the 90s.
    Royalties really can set you up for life, huh?
    And who the hell is still buying Lauryn Hill music?
