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.”

Is Hollywood Trying To Make Sterling K. Brown The New Denzel Washington?

Sir Sidney Poitier was a force to be reckoned with in the 60’s and 70’s. Denzel Washington came onto the scene in the late 80’s and instantly stole the hearts of women around the world. And we can’t forget about the Blair Underwoods, Morris Chestnuts and the Shemar Moores of the 90’s.

But while many of these men are still around knocking roles out of the ballpark, we can’t help but notice the push for one major newcomer: Sterling K. Brown.

Although having been in the business for some time, it was Brown’s portrayal of Christopher Darden in FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson that really stole the attention of audiences around the nation.

And if that wasn’t enough, Brown became one of the most idolized characters on NBC’s This Is Us, playing a successful Black man in a successful Black marriage, navigating his way though his relationships with siblings.

Now after picking up two Emmy Awards, there seems to be a big push in the media to make Brown the new universal “it” man. Sure he is the ultimate trifecta — ear to ear smile, impeccable acting chops and a banging body.

But there’s a very direct narrative being told. Is Sterling on his way to becoming Hollywood’s new beef cake? Is Hollywood setting the star up to have the same level of celebrity and placement in this bizarre hierarchy as the beloved Denzel?

On Monday, Brown even appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show for the first time somehow ended up with his shirt off.

Sure the popular daytime series had a “reason” behind having the actor ride a tractor without his shirt on … but this is clearly another way of reminding the world that the sex appeal is on point.

Needless to say, nobody will replace the many men who have led the way for stars before them. But there’s no doubt the industry is holding it’s arms wide open for Brown to come running in for the largest embrace of a lifetime.
