Lauryn Hill grants rare interview with NPR; about that Hole show the other night...
By David Malitz
- R&B/hip-hop recluse Lauryn Hill granted a rare interview to NPR's Zoe Chance as part of the station's "50 Great Voices" series. Among the topics covered were why she stopped making music and what her future recordings will sound like. On the latter she said she expects to expand beyond a hip-hop template: "People have never really heard me sing. I think if I do record, next time, perhaps, there will be an expanded context. People can hear -- a bit more.”
- I think I've fully recovered from Sunday night's epic Courtney Love meltdown at 9:30 Club. It hasn't been a nightly disaster tour - check out this review from a New Jersey Hole show just a few nights earlier. "Courtney Love didn't screw up any of her guitar parts. She didn't forget any of her choruses. She never lost her place in the set, or looked disoriented during a song." Wasn't exactly the case on Sunday. If I was forced to pick a single lowlight it would be the fact that her assistant spent the entire show on stage, often directly in front of Love, filming on an iPhone. Truly a new low.
