Fans, musicians and media all weighed in on Lauryn Hill’s tardiness to her recent concert in Atlanta, causing the singer’s name to trend on Twitter for much of the day Saturday.
But the one person who remained silent was the singer herself.
On Sunday, in a message posted to Facebook, Hill said she is "figuring out a plan" to make it up to fans who waited more than two hours to see her perform at Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Friday. Due to her late arrival and the venue’s 11 p.m. curfew, the singer only performed for less than 40 minutes before her sound was cut off.
“I have nothing but love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show,” the Facebook message reads.
Hill, who's show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET, took the stage around 10:20 p.m. She was forced to stop singing during her set because of a strict curfew that the venue, which is located in a residential area, enforces.
While a fan video seems to show Hill blaming her driver for her tardiness, her Facebook message makes no mention of the driver.
Hill said she will announce details about how she plans to make it up to fans as soon as she has them.
