Lauryn Hill makes solid return at Rock the Bells
Lauryn Hill’s star just keeps getting brighter.
After Billboard announced her return to the charts with the leaked single, “Repercussions,” word spread over the weekend that L Boogie left the crowd wanting more at a Rock the Bells concert in San Bernardino, California, on August 21.
Hill reportedly did her thing, performing hits like “Fu-Gee-La,” “Doo Wop (That Thing),” “To Zion” and “Ready or Not" at the concert, which also featured other venerated hip-hop artists Snoop Dogg, Slick Rick, Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest and the Wu-Tang Clan.
“When she started to perform ‘Fugee La’ and ‘Ready or Not’ from ‘The Score’, her multiplatinum album with the Fugees, the place erupted,” reports MTV’s Sway, who said that Hill’s performance was the day’s defining moment.
The L.A. Times agrees, saying that Hill “dispelled any doubts of her abilities.” While the Times notes that Hill was “occasionally chaotic and harried, her voice and skills remained peerless and again revealed that her lack of prolificacy doesn’t stem from an absence of talent.”
MTV’s Shaheem Reid also sang Hill's praises, saying the artist “was undoubtedly the must-see event of the night… This was not a woman who some reports had labeled ‘crazy.’ Lauryn was lucid and dancing and appeared to be enjoying herself.”
You can catch "Rock the Bells" when it hits New York and Washington, D.C. next weekend.

I was thinking the same thing. lol thread them, wax them, trim them... something!
Please Please Please do something about those eyebrows!
I was thinking the same thing. Why are they making her look like a clown from the 70s?!?!?!
I only have one thing to say. CNN.......FIND A NEW PICTURE OF HER!!!!!!!!!
It's great to hear that Lauryn is 'back' but yeah this pick isn't the best. 😀
It's the same pic on the last three or four stories they've posted about her.......and yes, it's terrible.
I lover Lauryn for her music, style and for the fact that she knows how much music is an influence to young people. She's a beautiful person and sould and can't wait to see her return. I have not always agreed with her and some of her choices, but she's created classic after classic that will put to shame most of the music made by R&B/Hip Hop artists in the last 10yrs! Nikki Me-Who...she'll never come close to the likes of Lauryn, shoot she'll never make a song you'll want to hear in 20 years or played at your wedding..that's how you measure good classic music!
I told you she was bad... go get em girl.. cant wait for your next Album..
