    @Maks, her existence alone -in an industry where women are reduced to the brands they wear, how many tights they wear in order not to wobble while they dance half naked and How many weaves and wigs they have – is a blessing!

    I am a huge fan
    and even though I am sad that she never had the success I wanted her to continue having, I am sure she is happier to have the kind of success SHE always wanted to have:
    TO BE A TRUE ARTIST FOR MANY GENERATIONS TO COME!

    Very impressed by Lauryn Hill’s choice. I would rather see her do this than be known for endorsing designer brands/labels.
