I-don't-do-stairs

[ #5046 ]
Dear Log,

«The precise nature of [Lauryn] Hill's conversion has aroused much discussion in America, particularly after she wound up her Refugee Fund, a charity for deprived children, declaring it was "not coming from a place of passion" and was interfering with her "creativity". One popular theory is that Hill is just barking mad. In fact, her attempts to illuminate her new outlook reveal a muddle of Little Book of Calm platitudes ("all of us have a right to be who we are", "true healing is from the inside out") and what sounds suspiciously like selfishness. Hill no longer does anything she doesn't want to do, she explains, because obligation is "slavery". This isn't lunacy at all, but a philosophy tailor-made for the tantrum-throwing, I-don't-do-stairs world of soul divas and supermodels.»

--"Songs from la-la land: Lauryn Hill has a new philosophy. Shame we have to listen to it, says Alexis Petridis"
