Lauryn Hill vs. the Catholic Church

Lauryn Hill ain't never scared. In 2003, in a concert at the Vatican, the singer-rapper attacked the church for its rampant sex-abuse scandals. "God has been a witness to the corruption of his leadership, of the exploitation and abuses ... by the clergy," she said, standing just feet from several high-level cardinals.
