Lauryn Hill Kicks Fan Out of Concert

Published July 23, 2014

Under no circumstances will Lauryn Hill be allowing fans to disrespect her. Ms. Hill kicked an audience members out of her show in Chicago for heckling and flipping her off, TMZ reports.

"When I get up on this stage, don't be disrespectful," she's said in a fan-recorded video from the show. "It's alright you can go, I would prefer that. You not gon' mess up my vibe for the rest of these people, you not gon' do that. So if you gon' go please get up, get your money refunded and go. I'm alright with that."

The audience member may have been agitated because Hill didn't hit the stage until an hour after the concert was supposed to start. Tardiness aside, the New Jersey singer/rapper wasted no time putting the rowdy fan on blast. "Excuse me, there's a gentleman over there who just did something I don't like," she said in the mic to security. "Can you please escort him out and refund his money? I don't play that."

As the crowd booed and cheered, Hill explained herself. "I don't need to win you over and you don't need to win me over," said the mother of six. "You can go and take all your money back. I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything… and you can get on your blogs, Tweet, whatever you want to. I don't give a rat's a--."
