Monday. Another busy one around these parts, Clutchettes. And while we recover from the weekend (slowly, surely), we really, really wanted to cover every single thing in the news, but couldn’t. Any who…here’s just a taste of what we couldn’t talk about, but totally thought you should know!

Lauryn Hill responds to NJ tax evasion charges – After news broke that she owes Uncle Same, L-Boogie has an explanation for not paying her tax bill: I Withdrew from society. She explained in a statement: “Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual,” Hill wrote. “I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities, but I did however put my safety, health and freedom and the freedom, safety and health of my family first over all other material concerns! I also embraced my right to resist a system intentionally opposing my right to whole and integral survival.” Hmm…I’m not sure that’ll work in court, though. {theGrio}
