Lauryn Hill’s name was dragged through the mud and completely obliterated this week after she arrived a whopping three hours late for her performance at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall. But now, after being blasted on every single social media platform for her tardiness, Hill is apologizing to her livid fans.

On Wednesday night, Hill wrote a long apology on Twitter for the being “extremely” late for her show the night before. According to the singer, there were “factors out of our control” including the snowy weather in NYC.

“Due to the snow yesterday in NYC, half of my band, and some other members of my crew, were stuck at LGA airport all day,” she wrote. “The promoter notified people of the new start time though social media, and as fans got to the venue.”

The singer added, “We are working on scheduling another performance in Pittsburgh later this month, before the end of the our, for the people who bough tickets to my show.”

This is not the first time Hill has had to apologize for being late — but at least this excuse is understandable. Back in May 2016, the 41-year-old blamed her tardiness on a show in Atlanta on “aligning her energy with the time.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
