I'm DONE with LAURYN HILL the Hypocrite

Lauryn Hill won me over as a young boy when she toured the world as a member of the groundbreaking hip-hop group, THE FUGEES. Socially conscious with no chaser, Lauryn Hill rose to international fame with her Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album that spoke of self respect, love, and the problems with society as a whole. 

Unfortunately, after getting brainwashed by Rohan Marley, (son of legendary Reggae singer, Bob Marley) and dealing with Rastafarians, she became distant from the industry and soon admitted to having a complete distaste for commercialism. She soon faded into obscurity, refused interviews, refused to record commercial albums and began to speak out against social injustice. I've always been a huge fan of the intellect, originality and boldness of Ms. Hill; however, as of late, Ms. Hill can kiss my gay Black ass.

In her music, Lauryn has always seemed to point out everything that is wrong with society. Whether it be men not taking care of their kids financially or young naive girls who have bastard babies by them....

Excerpt from "That Thing"

he pretty face, men claiming that they did a bid men
Need to take care of their three and four kids men
They facing a court case when the child's support lateMoney taking, heart breaking now you wonder why women hate men

Sure in that song, Hill said, "don't think I haven't been through the same predicament" 

However she was criticized for sitting on a high horse when she kept birthing babies out of wedlock and later admitted to sleeping with a married man, Wyclef, her bandmate. It seemed Ms. Hill was more of a "do as I say, not as a I do" preacher. 

Enter the homophobia. 

No surprise that Lauryn Hill feels a certain way about the LGBT community being that she went to Jamaica and got brainwashed by a bunch of Rastafarians; a culture which murders anyone who is suspected of being homosexual.

In "Lost Ones" she ironically bitches about hypocrites and delivers a questionable lyric...

"Tried to play straight, how your whole style bent?"

Yes this seems harmless but it is just one of many lyrics in her early music which seems to paint a negative picture of anything that is not "Straight"

Her latest song has ruffled a lot of colorful feathers. It attacks everything that perfect Lauryn deems wrong with society including homosexuality and men who dress up as women. 

Again, in "Neurotic Society" Lauryn Hill repeatedly speaks of "hypocrites" which is hilarious once again. 
Martha Stewart gives Lauryn advice for prison
What I find interesting is that "The Fugees" are supposed to represent the oppressed, the underdogs, yet we have a member sitting up judging an entire group of people who have been continuously oppressed for decades. Homosexuals, are they oppressed? Do young boys and girls who are kicked out, disowned by their parents, left to be homeless and unloved on the  streets have a refugee camp to go to? Hypocritical Lauryn Hill can stand up for everyone and open her refugee camp to all the oppressed except if you happen to be gay, transgender, etc. 

Openly gay hotel worker, Calvin Rutledge spilled some hot boiling spice tea in a phone call he placed to me. Rutledge says in 2006, while working at the W hotel in New Orleans, Ms. Hill tried it in the worst way possible.

"I was living in New Orleans, but was on vacation in Atlanta at the time. I got pissed off phone calls from coworkers from W hotel in New Orleans," said Rutledge. "My coworkers said Lauryn Hill refused to get out of her car at the carport where guests enter the hotel...she was pissed. The valet drivers were outside, she didn't want to get out of her car and didn't want anyone looking at her. She disrupted the other guests from coming in. She took a towel and put it over her head. She was tripping! She slammed the door, went in the hotel and checked in," Rutledge then spills the GOOD TEA..

"The women who worked in food service said she ordered all kinds of food that they didn't have. She kept bitching about the food. Lauryn Hill came downstairs to complain about her room not being cleaned right. She stormed downstairs and talked to the gay manager about it. Apparently she didn't like whatever he was saying and at one point, she yelled,

"I can't deal with White folks and I can't stand fags!" 

OH HELL NAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep in mind that Hill spoke of being Bisexual on her UNPLUGGED album and has been rumored to have had a lesbian relationship with a so-called close female friend of hers.

The LGBT community is clearly not a community Ms. Hill  thinks deserves a place in society. In her crapfest song which is horribly produced, rambles and sounds more like a Twista homage, she mentions "girly men" and "Drag queens" as being apart of what is wrong with the modern era.
I can agree with a lot of the lyrics about the greed of corporate America, so don't get me wrong...and I understand metaphor, but some of these lyrics are downright specific about the LGBT community, and it is rather discomforting. 
We’re living in a joke time, metaphorical time/Commerce and girl men/Run the whole world men.”
“Greedy men and pride fiends/Program TV screens/Quick scam and drag queens/Real life’s been blasphemed.”
Hill's damage control begins as she makes excuses about the shitty song,  "I was under pressure to release the song as soon as possible, due to “legal deadlines,” Hill asserts. And if you were expecting an apology,  you're not getting it! She stands behind the (hateful judgmental) messages of her song which will never receive radio play because it sucks. She clearly added these controversial lyrics to at least get people talking about her music rather than her prison sentence. Instead of hating on gays, maybe Lauryn needs to prepare herself and her children for her three month jail sentence. Yea, get your life bitch!
On her boring website, she wrote: “In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly [of Kriss Kross]), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!”
Among those “unhealthy paradigms”: self-indulgence, religious apathy, capitalism and “social gluttony.” Oh yea... And, apparently, “girl men.” But what does Chris Kelly's death have to do with any of this? Was he a "girl man" who remained unchecked and ended up dying because of it? This bitch needs electroshock therapy and a spot of BOILING tea. 
She also mentions “social transvestism” (or social cross-dressing) and laments “men and women as parody.” Seems Ms. Hill has a problem with men who refuse to abide by the roles that traditional society has assigned to them. However, traditional society does not agree with women who sleep with married men and don't pay their taxes. GET INTO IT!
Recently, I was surprised to encounter so many people, including gays, defending her. To me, this is hate speech. For some reason, when someone says something bad about homosexuals in music, it's no big deal, yet people can rally against the use of the word "bitch" in male rap or anything racist coming out of Michael Richards mouth.

Like Kanye West once said, it's time for the homophobia to end in hip-hop and music in general. If people are not going to tolerate Tracy Morgan saying "Faggot" then they need not tolerate the subliminal homophobic bullshit coming from hypocritical-Lauryn-batshit-crazy-Hill. 
I grew up Black, gay and a preachers kid. I grew up hating myself and told that I needed to be normal. I grew up in Jesus camp with messages that weren't as subliminal as Lauryn's about what kind of man God wants me to become. I grew up staring at a bottle of pills and looking down at the street from a seven story high window. I grew up in a world which hated me simply for being born how I was. I grew up in a school system that judged me for wearing black nail polish in high school while having a penis at the same time. I grew up watching my drag queen friend in high school get bullied every single day but I always respected her for having the BALLS to be who she was. 

What I do not understand, is how something like cross-dressing or being gay is as bad as corporate greed? I have a hard time understanding how so-called free thinking individuals can give a damn about how others express their sexuality. I do not get how Lauryn Hill spends so much time being worried about girly men, when the man she let penetrate her, queened out with Mary J. Blige. Oh yes, the diva begged people to call 911 while tossing his dread locks around like a Loreal commercial. GET INTO IT. 
Words are powerful and if you dare utter them, you better be ready to deal with the consequences. There are young people who primarily don't know who the fuck Lauryn Hill is, but who will no doubt run across this song due to all the controversy surrounding it. Imagine a young adolescent who struggles with their self image hearing a music ICON tell them that they are apart of the "neurotic" society. Hill sends these people to eternal Hell and jail cells along with the Bernie Madoff's and Wall Street swindlers. 
She missed her mark. Why include the LGBT community in this song? Why not just focus on  the issues of world hunger, greed, nepotism and all the other pressing issues? Worrying about RuPauls drag race will not keep you out of jail nor will it feed and clothe your children. 
I do not support Lauryn Hill anymore for this reason and more. This is the same bitch who said she'd rather have her kids starve than have WHITE PEOPLE buy her music. 
It's time for the hatred to stop. And it's time to call a spade a spade and a bigot a bigot. Just because it's about cross-dressers, gays or lesbians does not mean it's less offensive. If Kesha were to sing about nappy headed black bitches being the ills of society, wouldn't there be a huge uproar? 
I think Lauryn Hill is a COWARD. She can't just come out and say what she really feels. She hides behind beats and artistic interpretation. We all know who she is. When someone shows you who they are, believe them. This is one judgmental bitch who doesn't have a halo to point to. She calls everyone else a hypocrite while refusing to look in her own shit stained mirror. 
Save the bullshit, speak your true thoughts and say it like you mean it bitch...
Inside Lauryn's Head:
...Homosexuality is wrong. White people are evil. I don't believe in marriage nor do I respect it... 
Speak your truth Lauryn but don't expect for us to buy into it. 
In the meantime I hope she finds a beautiful butch lesbian in jail to minister to. I know they will be quite receptive to her opinions and judgments. And when she's home on house arrest, I hope a flaming queen comes over to fix those bushy caterpillars she calls eyebrows. 

Oh, and being natural is fine, but refusing to oil your scalp is not. Get it together Lauryn. 
Her career is over so she has resorted to becoming an evil version of Iyanla Vanzant except these people did not ask for their lives to be fixed. I wonder whose life does need to be fixed? Probably the one who has a million babies with a man who at first questioned if one of them was his. I'm just sayin'
