Lauryn Hill Breaks Silence
Jun 29, 2010
Grammy-award winning R&B artist Lauryn Hill broke her silence Monday, explaining a near 11-year absence from the music scene. She vanished from the world of music in 1998 after the release of her "Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" album.
National Public Radio's Zoe Chace scored an interview for NPR with Hill and asked, 'Why did she stop recording?'
"There were a number of different reasons," she explains. "But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it."
Hill also shared that she has five children, the youngest of which is 2 years old. "I don't know if you know this, but I have five children," she tells NPR.
Us Magazine explains her children's dad is Hill's longtime love Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae legend Bob Marley.
"The youngest is 2 now, so she's old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she's going to be okay."
Hip Hop DX has more on the interview.
